NEW BRUNSWICK -- As the general manager of Rutgers Universitys student radio station, WRSU 88.7 FM,Dominick Savino was looking for a way to celebrate the stations seven decades in broadcasting.
So Savino, the current WRSU general manager, and his team of broadcasters took a deep dive into the archives to discover some of the seminal moments in the stations history.
Over the next several months leading into the 70th anniversary in April 2018, WRSU will re-broadcast airings of historical events -- such as the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated -- and some of the most memorable games.
As you can imagine, we found a bunch of different things, Savino said. Were planning on reaching out to alums to put some perspective on those broadcasts and really begin in earnest our archival series in September.
WRSU will launch the series Saturday with a re-airing of the Rutgers womens basketball teams 1982 AIAW Championship game. The special, which airs between 8 and 11 a.m., will feature the entire WRSU broadcast of the championship game by announcers Jim Berman and Jeff Gerstenblatt and include recently-taped interviews with Naismith Hall of Fame coach Theresa Grentz and several members of the championship team and then conclude with the Knightline post-game show hosted by Jon Newman and Geoff Sadow.
RU game on Jimmy V. Court at The Barn?
Were going to use Rutgers Day as our jumping off point for a year-long, from-the-archives series that will hopefully culminate in a humongous week leading into our 70th anniversary, Savino said. Its really cool to hear what are inarguably some of the biggest calls in WRSU history. Its just really interesting to hear how they try to express the moment of only the second national championship for any Rutgers program in school history.
The 1982Rutgers womens basketball team recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of a 25-7 campaign that culminated in the AIAW national championship.

Tune into @WRSU on Rutgers Day on Sat! The 1982 AIAW Championship broadcast has been found and will re-air

Four years before the program earned its first NCAA Tournament berth, a star-studded contingent of Patty Delehanty, Mary and Patty Coyle, June Olkowski, Chris Dailey and Terry Dorner helped the Lady Knights defeat national-power Texas, 83-77, for the championship title at the Palestra in Philadelphia on March 28, 1982.
I hope people enjoy listening to the program because we really had a lot of fun putting it together, said Savino, a Rutgers junior who can be heard broadcasting Scarlet Knights mens basketball games. I hope a lot of people reminisce about this team because in a lot of ways this is a forgotten team of sorts. Not many people talk about the fact that Rutgers womens basketball won a 1982 AIAW national championship.
And I hope its a solid jumping-off-point for our archival stuff this year.
