Creation Date

late 1940s


WXBC was conceived in 1946 by Elie Shneour ’47 and implemented by many hands, including those of John Gillin ’47, who wrote his senior project about the technical design and construction of this college radio station. The “X” in its call letters stood for “experimental,” and the 1951 yearbook described the station as the “Voice of the Bard Campus.” In this photograph, the students behind the glass are, from left, Miles Hollister ’50, Corinne Sherman ’49, Scott Peyton ’52, Dick Sherman ’49, Carol Andrews ’48, and an unknown man. At the controls is Joan Abner ’50. While one student controls the broadcast, another prepares to a cue a performing group in the sound room via the control room.
