WFTU History
The University of Central Florida was authorized by the Florida State Legislature in 1963, and opened in 1968 as Florida Technological University, with the goal of providing highly-trained personnel to support the Kennedy Space Center. 
From Donna Karen Rosenblum: "...(The ) studios (were) on the bottom floor of the Library building. It broadcast over cables and its signal could ostensibly only be heard in the student dorms.
From Terry Schenk: "...While WFTU was a low powered station back then, primarily designed to serve the campus, the signal was receivable in Winter Park as that is where I lived at the time and I could hear the station there.
