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. Each week the hosts discuss a topic of interest from the world of libraries, archives, and information, often bringing in expert guests for interviews and analysis.

We connect the Library with Georgia Tech students, staff and faculty on WREK.
