The demise of WRVU can only b described as sad news. An institution has been lost. As a former WRVU DJ and listener the station did was it was intended to do, broaden one’s scope of music. It was a place where on Saturday you could listen to the Rhyming and Stealing Show w/ DJ B-NICE (me) and on Sunday tune into a fantastic blues program and in between get your fix of REM, The Cure and even Foster & Lloyd.
WRVU was a quintessential college music station and an independent voice in a much too programmed Nashville Radio Scene especially from 86' to 91'. At that time it was the only true form of hands on "communications" experience a student could get. They should have tried to turn it into a WFUV (Fordham University) type of deal.
I'll miss 91 Rock and I think Nashville will too.
