Shoutout to Malia Murray (daughter of Ray Murray and Dee Dee "Peaches" Hibbler) on directing this...
I'm ecstatic about these old school hip-hop stations. I had actually stopped listening to the radio because of the garbage that currently dominates the airwaves. It's refreshing to know that I can now get in my car and listen to classics like Slick Rick's "Hey Young World", MC Lyte's "Paper Thin", or Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You". #Nostalgia
I wish there was room on the dial for an Electronic based station, not just EDM but soulful house, Techno, Indie-Dance (Like LCD Soundsystem).
Would be amazing just to brake up the Rnb/Top 40 a bit.
Folks, we need a good METAL station... WREKage on Friday nights is great, but there are a lot more metalheads in this city than you see out and about... I've been doing Vibrations Of Doom Magazine & Online DOOM Radio for 23 years now, where the hell is OUR audience!?? If anyone's got a radio station they want to have someone come down and play metal from the 70's/80's/90's and 2000 era, plus stuff not in stores yet, give me a yell. This city NEEDS the diversity...
"Does Atlanta radio know that white people want to listen to the radio too?"
so sad today :^(
I used to listed to 88.5, and then it became talk radio for insipid, middle-class caucasians.
/probably not helping
Jack, I am white. I listen to OG, didn't know about the other 2, need to check them out. I also listen to 97.1 (classic rock), 100.5 (rock) and 105.7 (alternative). Which are all rock stations of one format or another. So......
Does Atlanta radio know that white people want to listen to the radio too? Where the hell is the Classic Hits station? What about a JACK FM station? What about a soft rock station? What about a MIX station? Atlanta radio is an absolute fucking atrocity right now. You've got 27 hip hop/R&B stations, 27 country stations and 27 Top 40 stations. Other people listen to the radio besides rednecks, black people and 15 year old girls. What a joke.
damn Dres. I kinda like ditty.
Comment to show that I'm hip
Yoon is such a great DJ! She will be missed for sure. By far one of the best WRAS has ever had on the staff list. It breaks my heart as a former Album 88 DJ to think about the "next Yoon" who isn't going to have a voice, won't be able to share their talents and educate us about music because of what GSU's administration did to the station. We all lose. Best of luck Yoon and thank you for all of your dedication!
did gentleman jesse play any of his songs that are note-for-note ripoffs of little richard hits? very original and inventive. what a local legend. i can't get enough of em...or his stinky-ass jean jacket
She has the right voice, and her shows have gotten better and better. This is what college radio is all about.
I've picked up so many records over the years after hearing them in Yoon's shows. I hope she continues with a podcast or something.
AM1690, give her a show!
I am going to miss this show so much it has been my favorite radio show ever and i will miss it thank you for the music Yoon!!!! YOU RULE!!!
I met some dude named Lewis that said this whole fest thing was like mega boring. A real snooze fest with no rock n roll zingers or any other hostess snake cake to carry your attention. Sucks cause I wanted to go. Some other dude said Gentlemen Jesse played some new tunes that where though. Hopefully they will come through town again, that would be so much kewl.
Leave it to you dirty hippies take a nice story about a cool young lady and attempt to hijack it into another forum to vent about your hard-on against GPB. Shameful.
This is precisely why the GPB deal will never duplicate the learning experience that WRAS has done for each and every student DJ and listener down through the decades. How many students will treasure their year "tabling" or going door-to-door for GPB? How many will have this sort of experience doing titles or closed captioning for GPB TV programs?
Becker simply doesn't "get it".
Big fan of Jet Lag. Going to miss Yoon!
I remember when she first started and she has come a long way ! :^)
