    All the hallmarks of college radio are there: Songs you’ve never heard but want to hear again, monotone DJs, and ubiquitous public-service announcements. And thankfully, WRAS-FM (88.5), "the Student Voice of Georgia State University," is bringing it free of charge to Atlantans. Such specialty shows as "Dot Dash," "Houseworks," "Martinis Con Queso," "Mighty Aphrodite," "The Blue Note" and "Soul Kitchen" play all of the post-punk, house, lounge, new wave, jazz and everything else you won't hear on big-money mainstream stations. And if the trusty Shazam on ye olde iPhone doesn’t recognize the eclectic array of musical selections emanating from your speakers, the spry, young DJs have been known to rehash their setlists via e-mail or phone. 66 Courtland St., University Center, Room 280. 404-413-9727. www.gsu.edu/~www885. less...

    Engineers are strange, in a good way. Though we never quite know how, they help us manage the banality of everyday life. So it sorta makes sense that Georgia Tech’s student-run radio station, WREK-FM (91.1) is the same: strange in a good way. The station’s format is noncommercial and nonconforming. Few stations in the city can compete with WREK’s eclectic playlist as it moves without missing a beat from the street-conscious rap of Lupe Fiasco’s “Just Might Be OK” to the mind-numbing rock of Japan’s Solar Anus. It’s as if the daily sound blocks are programmed to project moods instead of genres. The station’s website even provides a detailed blueprint of WREK’s mission statement for the next three years. How efficient. less...
