We are making plans for an alumni reunion to celebrate KTUH’s 45 years of FM broadcasting in 2014. The reunion will be held on June 21st, 2014, possibly off-campus this time. All KTUH alumni and current staff members are invited to attend. Be sure that you (and any alumni that you are in contact with) are on the alumni mailing list to receive updates on the reunion event. Event details will be posted on the alumni page.
KTUH’s General Manager, Jay-me Morita, sent this url around in an email and it really applies to KTUH’s alumni: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mariasherm/26-signs-you-were-a-college-radio-dj . Thanks, Jay-me.
Dave and Ken Wild, each a KTUH Tuesday night jazz show host in the early 1970s, performed two sets at Vitello’s in Studio City, CA on August 4, 2011 and again in late 2012. Brothers Dave (on piano) and Ken (on bass) were joined by Eric Marienthal on saxophones and Ray Brinker on drums in 2011. Here is a link to a YouTube video from that night. Dave promises that they both will attend the next KTUH staff reunion.
