Good-bye to the WEMC as it was

Jim Bishop, long-time disk jockey and host for WEMC (91.7 FM), uses the occasion of the final recording of his 11-year-old “Friday Night Jukebox” program in 2011 to offer viewers a tour of the vintage WEMC broadcast facilities on EMU’s campus. Bishop reminisces about his 40-plus years of involvement with WEMC, “Virginia’s oldest public radio station.” WEMC is now housed, along with WMRA (90.7 FM), in facilities owned by James Madison University.

  1. I remember spending time with my husband, Steve, in the production studio in the summer of 1977! It was beastly hot and humid for a long stretch that summer. We lived in a small upstairs apartment in a house with no air conditioning where the Seminary parking lot is now. The studio was air conditioned for the sake of the equipment, so when Steve did his work-study stints in the evening, I would hang out there with him. Wow! That really was a long time ago!! :)
