BUILD IT! The Genius of Ohio Stadium is a new exhibit open from now until October 25th at the Banvard Gallery, on the first floor of Knowlton Hall on the OSU Campus.  The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9-5.  Knowlton Hall is the uniquely designed building near Ohio Stadium and across from the Blackwell.

Ohio Stadium is celebrating its 90th year in 2012 and the genius behind the stadium was architect Howard Dwight Smith.  Learn more about Smith and the building of the stadium no one thought Ohio State could fill at the gallery exhibit.

    I started out as an intern at WOSU 820. My last radio airdate was on 820 (December 20, 2008). Irony. But t’s a new dcay and I’m ready for 89.7 (again) … can you use an anchor? :)))) Really …

    I would like to congratulate WOSU about its programming decisions regarding the switch to the FM dial for both classical programming and all news and interview programs.

    Also, I really appreciate having the BBC World News America. It is interesting to get a somewhat different perspective on the news. I found it entertaining that the BBC program spent an entire show reporting on the sentencing of Michael Jackson’s doctor.

    B-o-o-o-o-o ! I am sad to see WOSU am go to 89.7 fm. I listened to Bluegrass Ramble on my 60 year old Crosley floor radio for a long time. Nothing sounds as good as old time radio on an old time radio. Sure, I can pick it up on my Japanese fm radio, but it will never be the same.
