Rice University FM Returns to the Air

After a four and a half year hiatus, the station returns to it's humble beginnings in the 1960s as an on-campus, low power FM signal.  The new station's launch is ironic given the University of Houston's announced plans for the transmitter and tower it purchased from Rice and turned into KUHA-FM.

The official calls are KBLT-LP but the station will be referred to as KTRU except in the legally mandated hourly ID.

When I was at Rice in the mid-1970s, I remember hearing this tag line for KTRU: "A light bulb is 60 watts. We are 10.">
