The FTC SOUND STREAM is the Internet web-based streaming service of Five Towns College. Formerly known as WFTU (1570 AM), the radio station at Five Towns College has been upgraded and expanded its reach through a rebranding. It is a professional full-service college radio station operated, programmed and engineered by students and staff featuring music, talk, sports, news, information, and remote broadcasts. The station uses a Hot AC format for their music selections along with a variety of student programs which features music from rap to rock to hip hop to jazz.
Broadcasting seven days a week from the “Gene Free Studios” located on the Five Towns College campus, the FTC SOUND STREAM offers hands-on radio broadcast training for students to jump right in. Students not only learn to master new and emerging technologies, but also to present news, music, and commentary. The FTC SOUND STREAM has opportunities for students of all academic programs (not just Mass Communication) interested in broadcasting and the multi-media communication industry. Our daily live broadcasts are recorded so listeners can hear them on mixcloud.com/ftcsoundstream. The FTC SOUND STREAM provides both fun and real-world experiences that all students can learn from.
