WNKU-FM

Before beloved WNKU-FM vanishes into thin air at 6 p.m. Thursday Sept. 28, here's another installment of remembrances from loyal listeners and former staffers.

WNKU-FM will play requests and listener comments all day Thursday on FM 105.9, which has been sold by the university to Grant County Broadcasters. A new station debuts Monday, Oct. 2.

WNKU-FM won't be making a big deal about losing its original frequency (FM 89.7) at 8:59 a.m. Friday late Friday night, since the beloved station still will be heard until late October on Middletown's powerful WNKN-FM (105.9) and streaming.

But I will.... since "it's the beginning of the end," as I wrote earlier this week.
