Each month, a history professor at Delta creates a radio clip that plays throughout the month on our local public radio station. We call these “Moments in Time.” The radio programs air on FM 90.1 (for those in the mid-Michigan region) every Tuesday at 7:45 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. Here is a link to some of our programs: https://soundcloud.com/wucxmomentintime
