100,000 watts of quality,
diverse programming

Music you don’t hear on the radio

We are often asked why we do not play more mainstream music, or why we do not stick with a more conventional “college radio” format. The answer is multifaceted: as a student-run radio station at a prestigious institute of higher education, we are obligated to provide an experience that is educational as well as enjoyable to our listeners. WREK differentiates itself from other radio stations (both commercial and non-commercial) in the Atlanta market by playing atypical music–particularly music that is outside the cultural mainstream. Therefore, the musical acts that you hear on WREK are generally not the same acts that appear on the Billboard charts or even on the CMJ Top 10. We do not exclude this music because it is necessarily bad music; it is simply unnecessary and in fact wasteful for us to play the music that commercial radio stations are already playing when we have the somewhat unique opportunity to maintain our commitment to “Quality, Diverse Music” rather than being the willing pawns of the music industry.

Specialty Shows

Our specialty show programming is a gateway to a focused sound, movement, or era of music from the lens of WREK's very own exceptional student DJs.
