We are the world's first and only Research Library Rock n Roll Radio Show, broadcasting from the WREK studio on campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Our goal is to connect the Library with Georgia Tech students, staff and faculty on WREK. We play a lot of music, interview members of the GT community, and talk about Library-related news of interest.
