KBCS Reflections on the First Day of Broadcast 50 Years Ago
February 3, 2023 - 11:35 am
KBCS was started by Bellevue College students who wanted to broadcast music and their ideas. After their initial request was declined by the college, they held a President’s office sit-in protest. They started with equipment donated by KING FM, and over time, morphed from a student radio club, to a professionally managed community radio station
Find out about the first day of KBCS’s broadcast as a 10 watt radio station on February 3, 1973. We interviewed KBCS debut host and radio veteran, Raoul Van Hall who started here as a high school student.
Thank you to our listeners, Bellevue College and our community of volunteers, students, journalists and media partners, for without you, we would not be here today celebrating this year.
