Their key advisor, Jeff Walker, who has been the station’s rock for more than three decades, is coincidentally (or not) retiring in July and keeping his mouth shut, caught in the middle of a controversy not of his making.
Jeff has been involved with WRAS in some form or another since Radio at State began broadcasting. Album 88 would not have become what it was if it weren’t for all of his decades working at, or for the station. It will be impossible to replace him.
Here’s a great documentary about what WRAS is (was?) and how meaningful it was to so many people. It’s been making the rounds on FB the past few days and features a brief interview with a very young Edward.
