25 Years Ago Today...
On this date in 1982, WBNY went on the air at Buffalo State College.
In honor of this milestone, a New Media Conference will be held at Buff State October 25-28, 2007.
Weekend events include a concert by The English Beat on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. The first concert WBNY sponsored was The English Beat in April of 1983. An unknown band from Georgia called R.E.M. opened the show. This time local favorite Lazlo Hollyfeld will be the opening band.
More information about the weekend, and how to sign-up, is available at WBNY Alumni site.
Note: Judith Regan has canceled her appearance at the New Media Weekend
forum due to illness. VH-1 Vice President Tom Calderone will be appearing instead.
