On Jan. 1, 1983, KGOU became a non-commercial public radio station. I barely noticed.
I should have noticed. After all, I was working at KGOU as a volunteer student broadcaster, and for the past year and a half I’d been dragging my sleep-deprived self out of bed at 6 a.m. (an hour most college students deemed unthinkable) to write and deliver two five-minute newscasts each morning. Still, I didn’t pay much attention.
