In November of 2009 three RC students began recording college announcements for WTPB FM in Rockford. Here's the first one aired.

For over 30 years Frank Tavares was the "voice of National Public Radio" doing those end of progrand underwriting credits. Long before he worked at NPR he taught in the Rockford Public Schools and did nights and weekends at WROK radio in Rockford. In 1969 he taught an Introduction to Broadcasting Evening College class at Rockford College. When the time came for WRCR's 51st Anniversary show in 2014, Frank Tavares recorded a greeting for the program and included a "credit".

The full 51st anniversary show is available here.
