Also featured are mixed media commemorative materials from the 35th, 40th, and 60th anniversaries since WSOU’s first broadcast in 1948. Audio materials are available on their original media of recorded sound discs (record albums on vinyl, broadcasts on CDs) and reel-to-reel audiotapes, though many have also been digitally reformatted and linked to this finding aid.
