The issue at the core of this story is unfortunate. The lack of funding for WUTK is a tragedy and should definitely be a concern for its listeners and the university. Benny does an incredible job with the limited resources that he is afforded. And it is unfortunate that there seems to be some bias towards WUOT when it comes to funding. But alot of WUOT's listeners have many more zeros on the end of their pay checks than a majority of WUTK listeners. That's a fact. Now why would the university pander to people with more money than college students? hmmmmmm. And WUOT listeners support them just like our listeners support WUTK. I don't think it's very rational to look at WUOT and say "Hey, how come they get more money than us. That's unfair." and feel sorry for yourselves. Wake up. UT is a business, and they will always try to appeal to the people that will give them the most money. You have to work with what you got. And Benny has done a splendid job of that. And I hope that he takes WUTK to even greater heights and makes the university realize what a commodity it has on it's hands. And it would be a shame to let the station fold for lack of funding and a bigger shame to disenfranchise all of the hard work everyone has put in there.
PS. - Why shouldn't Jay or anyone get any personal recognition for all of their hard work? For him to sit there and be called a crybaby for wanting to see some of the fruits of his hours he spent crafting relationships with the people that give the station the music it plays (promoters), is crazy. Jay is one of the most passionate and dedicated people I've ever seen when it comes to working at WUTK. And as music director, he had one of the most important jobs when it came to keeping WUTK pumping out the tunes. Without the music, where would the station be. Nonexistent. Plus the hours he spent passing on his knowledge and teaching others was invaluable to the station's success. Damn right he deserves some credit. So does everyone that put in that much time.
