WALF (89.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Variety format. Licensed to Alfred, New York, USA, the station serves the New York college area. The station is owned by Alfred University.[1] [2]

History[edit]

WALF-FM started in November 1971 in the basement of 6 Sayles Street, and has since moved twice, to Steinheim in the mid-1970s, and then to its current location in the Powell Campus Center when it opened in 1993.

WALF-FM is run by student volunteers, and has a freeform genre - allowing the student volunteer DJs to play what they want (within Federal Communications Commission regulations). The students produce most of the programming from 9:00am-2:00am, with some programming including faculty and community members.
