Album 88 Alumni Announces “Support Music On Album 88 Day”

June 18, 2014, Atlanta, GA – A coalition of music industry organizations today launched an advocacy effort in favor of preserving student control at Georgia State University’s WRAS-FM, Album 88 – Atlanta’s flagship student-run radio station. The campaign involves broad outreach to musicians, writers, and music industry professionals of all sorts, inviting them to submit testimonials about the role Album 88 has played in shaping their careers. The effort is endorsed by The Atlanta Chapter of The Recording Academy; Georgia Music Partners (GMP); The Music Business Association (previously NARM); and National Assn. of Recording Industry Professionals (NARIP). Call-to-action information is available at saveWRAS.com.

“We are pleased to have the support of such marquee organizations added to the growing number of voices advocating both locally and nationally in favor of Album 88’s music-centric nature,” said Zachary Lancaster, President of Album 88 Alumni (A88A), the non-profit alumni organization that has spearheaded this advocacy day. “This is a call to any and all music industry professionals to help us stop the Album 88 takeover by GPB, by taking a stand about this national trend of compromising student-run, music-centric programming in favor of talk radio (usually NPR).”

A88A’s advocacy letter includes the following statement: “For the last 43 years, Album 88’s wonderfully-eclectic, 100,000-watt station has helped many of us launch our music careers by providing an outlet for developing alternative music in a major market. It was the first station to play Outkast on the radio – and pioneered airtime for the likes of Collective Soul, R.E.M., Indigo Girls, and many more. The Boomtown Rats' new wave hit "I Don't Like Mondays" was inspired in the WRAS offices when Bob Geldof and Johnnie Fingers were there for an interview… Album 88 is at risk of becoming yet another talk-radio signal come June 29. Just as Album 88 has given us a voice for the past four decades, we must now stand together and voice our support of its student-run, music-centric format.“

About Album 88 Alumni:
Album 88 Alumni (A88A) seeks to preserve student-controlled radio programming at Georgia State University’s WRAS-Atlanta 88.5 FM (Album 88) by serving as an advocate for the nation’s first 100,000-watt student-run college radio station, strengthening the bond between alumni and current students for their benefit and providing an association for former Album 88 staff everywhere.
