(second part of comment from toneloc1969)
Being able to be the music director at WUTK is an unbelievable opportunity. One should feel lucky that they were given this opportunity because of the experience, the connections one makes, and the fact that many other people would like to have the opportunity (this was especially true back in the late 80s and early 90s when I first went to UT). When you have an opportunity like this you should not be talking about inter station dirty laundry and crying about who deserves the most credit ... you should be helping the station by purchasing one of its new fund raising CDs ReDistilled, donating time back to the station when possible, encouraging people to listen to the station, donating small amounts of money to the station via the WUTK Gift Fund at wutkradio.com (such as $10 or $20 a month), encouraging others to underwrite on the station and donate to it, and write letters to the Dean of Communications or even the President of UT telling them about all the practical experience and skills you learned from being at WUTK. Be proud of your experience and help others in the future be able to learn from the station.
The university needs to do much more to keep the station alive with funding and teachers at the university need to take advantage of the quality brand that the station has developed by incorporating more class projects to help students get quality real world experience ... not just with radio production, journalism, and advertising sales ... but also with marketing research, web design and maintenance, podcasting, and online video production (look at all the bands, local officials, and sports figures that could be interviewed for online video and posted onto wutkradio.com).
Lets help improve the education of students at UT (they deserve it and are paying for it), and help the station continue to thrive ... not hurt it by crying and complaining.
