What is now known as WKCR-FM originated in the early part of the twentieth century as the Columbia University Radio Club (CURC). An exact date of origin is not known, but documentation of the CURC as an on-going organization exists as early as 1936.

The club was not a radio station as we know it, but rather an organization concerned with the technology of radio communications. The group shared a prestigious association with Major Armstrong (E '13), the man who invented both AM and FM broadcast radio. This association accounts for the marginally accurate phrase, "The Original FM" that one will often hear alongside the WKCR call letters.
