I so agree with you!! As an alum of USF way before the time of the internet, I remember listening to the station while on and off campus. I am really sorry to see it go, since it provided such a quality and fun service to the community.

After reading your glowing description of this radio station I'm sad to say that I never heard of it before now. I would like to have had the opportunity to listen in. It is sad that there are so many momentous changes occurring in our culture. We are told it is all in the interest of "progress" but sometimes the supposedy upward direction is not at all clear. I sympathize with you for your loss.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this isn't a done deal. But I won't hold my breath.

Gary, cruise on over to www.kusfarchives.com and you can listen to hundreds of shows including foreign language programs, musical spotlights, and all things in between.

Sad, but hardly surprising. Old-line "college radio" has been in the sights of bland-media interests for years. My college station (WAER) got the students thrown out and turned into an NPR outlet; the one near my home (WFMU) went internet-only; when I moved here KUSF was one of the greats, even with the switch to Vietnamese News at 6:00pm. Money talks.

In the area, what seems to remain are KFJC 89.7, KZSU 90.1, KALX 90.7 and KVHS 90.5. Only KVHS has reasonable reception in the San Ramon Valley, being transmitted from Concord.
