South Orange, N.J. – WSOU 89.5 FM, the student-run radio station of Seton Hall University, will celebrate Thanksgiving and kick off the holiday season by rewinding to the nineties, providing chances to win exclusive prize packs, and proffering station store discount specials.
WSOU starts the long Thanksgiving weekend on Wednesday, November 22 at 6 a.m. with blocks of metal and hard rock from the 1990s at the top of each hour. WSOU’s rewind to the nineties continues throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
