April 04, 1922 - Purdue University Broadcasting License Accepted
Experiments in radio broadcasting began at Purdue University around 1910. Work on the new medium continued with the addition of new radio equipment in 1920 and the opening of a radio class later that year. On April 4, 1922, the broadcast license for WBAA was granted. The Purdue radio station is the oldest continuously operating radio station in Indiana. The current 5,000 watt signal reaches a potential 2.5 million people.

Indiana possesses a rich history that is fun to read and learn. This Hoosier Dusty Files is in an easy to read “this day in history format” and includes articles from the author's A Year in Indiana History series. Visitors may read the articles as they appear or purchase the book:
