88.5 (and Others) Annotated

I love WRAS. Even though the daytime shift does boast some of the sleepiest DJs to ever buzz the airwaves, Georgia State‘s radio station is a dependable source of interesting music that knows few bounds. The problem comes with the format, the fact that you’ll get three or four songs in a row from artists you’ve never ever heard of, but might want to hear again. There is a good chance that the DJ might be so kind as to identify them all when the set is done, but you usually don’t have time to sit in your parking lot or driveway and wait it out.

Worry and wonder no more. YES is here. The service works for all of Atlanta’s stations (so far as I can tell). You just scroll to the call letters you want, pick the time you need and voila … instantly gratifying identification. Oh, intarwebs … how do I love thee.

    I was in my car and couldn’t remember the name of a song to save my life. Google didn’t help me when I got home because I got the lyrics jumbled.. then I remembered this post!
