Fearing an Upsala College takeover and feeling general disgust with the demise of the counterculture, WFMU staffers shut down the station. DJ Lou D’Antonio reads a farewell speech prepared by Vin Scelsa, and the two sign off by playing “Wooden Ships” by Crosby, Stills, and Nash (real audio). Upsala keeps the station dark for ten months. August 26, 1969.
