Students and volunteers came back to visit radio station WVCP on Saturday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of broadcasting on 88.5 FM. The Volunteer State Community College radio station took to the airwaves on January 4, 1979. Visitors toured the studios to see the many technology changes. The event brought in people from the last four decades to reminisce. Some had not seen each other in many years.
