Pledge A Thon: Pure Student Power Hour

For hour 7 of Pledge Drive 2015’s Pledge A Thon 24 hour broadcast WIUX is doing a fast track musical flashback on the history of campus radio at Indiana University. With over 50 years under our belt we condensed this musical montage down into a pure student power hour where each year in our history gets one song that will be played for 1 min. The song was either released or was top charting that year.

Unlike the typical rules of a power hour, the pure student power hour encourages you to donate $1 to WIUX once we reach a song from the year that you were in school for or a song that has meant a lot to you.
