The student employees at Oakland University’s student-run radio station, 88.3 FM WXOU, celebrated the station’s its 52nd annual Birthday Bash on April 4.
“This is our 52nd year of doing it,” said Drew Marczewski, the general manager of WXOU. “I believe we’ve been doing it since the station opened.”
The celebration included food, free t-shirts to the first 100 people, and live music performances from several different artists.
WXOU was awarded the College Radio Station of the Year award both in 2012 and in 2013 by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters, and has been broadcasting on campus since 1967.
