The public is invited to a community open house of the new studios of WLFM, Lawrence University’s campus radio, Saturday, Jan. 14 at 8 p.m. WLFM staff members will offer tours of the remodeled facility and give demonstrations of some of the newly installed equipment. WLFM converted from an over-the-air FM signal to an all web-based broadcast format last fall. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the station’s founding.
As part of the open house, a concert featuring the Lawrence student band 8bitbEtty, the Chicago-based band Piglet and the three-member group El Oso from Milwaukee will perform in Cloak Theatre beginning at 9 p.m. The WLFM studios are located on the lower level of the south end of the Lawrence Music-Drama Center, 420 E. College Ave.
