On the air 34 years now thanks to thousands of listener members and volunteers and most of all a small group of founders who did incredible things to make WMNF happen.

One of them was Cam Dilley from Michigan via San Francisco, came to Tampa in 1978. Like the others he spent hours canvasing; fundraising door to door, and was arrested for illegally soliciting in the small beach town of Bellair Bluffs. Cam has done the WMNF Friday morning show since 1979.
