The fall membership drive is almost upon us and the semi-annual KRCC Early-Bird Open House is this weekend at our headquarters at 912 N. Weber. All of this means, of course, it’s time to add another coveted KRCC t-shirt to your growing collection. Please enjoy this mini-retrospective of T-shirts past from General Manager Delaney Utterback’s lovely (though, sadly, incomplete) collection.

As it were, if you are in possession of any of the T-shirts NOT shown in this slideshow, we’d be grateful if you’d bring them down to the station this weekend so we can either photograph them or accept them (if you’d be so generous to donate them) into our permanent collection.

Thanks!

Noel & Delaney, thebigsomething@krcc.org

    I still wear my favorite KRCC t-shirt which must be from the late 80’s? It’s a white shirt with Dr. Science on the front and green KRCC letters on the back. I love it! Let’s bring those back!

  2. Matt H says:

    Coming to the open house? Wear your oldest shirt. Mine is from Spring 1994. I hope I can find it.

    Thanks guys. This made me smile. I choose Delaney’s Getty radio towers as my fave. — And do ya wanna know something else? that very first design would make a pretty sweet reissue…!

    Hey Marc, aren’t you still in a nature phase?

  5. Susie says:

    Where’s the photo of the “most subversive shirt” with the car driving away and KRCC in 16 pt on the license plate? I want to see it.

  6. I’ll post in our follow-up story in the coming week.
