In 1995, a band formed at Rutgers University that consisted of three professors. Two of the professors were a part of the Rutgers faculty and another one was teaching at William Paterson University. They named themselves The Professors and originally started as a joke. Yet after the band had their first gig, they went out and hired a bassist so that they could become more serious.
Two of the original members are gone, but Gary P. Radford, a communication studies professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham, still has the band going strong.
