WHUS Storrs 91.7fm

UConn's Sound Alternative

Susan Forbes Hansen

DJ since: 1979

In early 1979 I was listening to the folk show on WHUS and heard an announcement for the station's training program, and I joined the spring class.  My first on-air work was co-hosting a program called Panorama, a nightly news and public affairs program -- we'd rip-and-read news from a teletype machine (believe it!) and record and broadcast snippets of audio news from various sources.  I did some fill-ins on various shows (rock, classical, jazz), but when the folk-show host resigned, I applied for that slot and The Sunday Night Folk Festival took to the airways on the first Sunday in August 1979.  So -- that means the show turns 35 this year.  I'm hoping to put together some kind of celebration -- I've hosted anniversary shows after 10, 15, 20, and 25 years, at Von der Mehden Hall at UConn and at Cheney Hall in Manchester, and featuring both local and national artists.
