These letters, WMWC, were the call letters for the “radio station” at Mount Wachusett Community College where I spent 2 years of school. I put the words “radio station” in quotes because our audience was basically the cafeteria. In fact these call letters belong to the University of Mary Washington. Yeah, I have never heard of them either, then again most probably haven’t heard of Mount Wachusett either.
A view above of our board and turntables, carts (for promos), reel-to-reel machine, mic and various papers and notices. Even a window! Not all radio stations have a window.
I’ve shown the high school station a bit and more to come, but going to jump ahead in time and glance at one of the college stations I worked at. Curry College is a small college in Milton, MA and I attended it for the last 2 years of my 4 years in college.
Here I present part of the program booklet put out by the station.
WMLN Program Guide 84-85
This booklet contained detailed information about what type of programming the station put out as well as who did what.

This is a real radio station but this post has nothing to do with it. Back in college a wrote a paper for school that used these letters for a radio station. I’m actually surprised it is a real station since “SOL” can stand for “sh** out of luck” – like I had to spell that out for you.

My proposal for this class paper was for a religious station who’s slogan “is “We Rock your Soul”. Pretty catchy huh. I’m not a religious man but I was at the time. There are typo’s such as spelling occasionally incorrectly or making up a word like “satanistic”, and I’m sure others but the focus for the exercise was not on proper English.
