The Science Fiction Lab on 91.1 WREK Premiere

I wanted to announce Georgia Tech’s latest radio program on the campus radio station, FM91.1 WREK. It’s called the Science Fiction Lab, and I have a segment where I read my review of Transformers and I talk a little bit about how I came to be where I am today in my SF academic career. Here’s all the details about the show from Professor Lisa Yaszek:

I’m writing now to let you know about a new program that will premiere on WREK radio (91.1 FM) in Atlanta on Sunday, July 22, from 7-9 pm.

The Science Fiction Lab is an NPR-type variety show that features science fiction music, interviews, pop histories, movie reviews, and original fiction readings. The premiere show will focus on science fiction at Georgia Tech; subsequent shows will be devoted to local and national science fiction news and events.

WREK is a student-run radio channel known for innovative and eclectic
programming. As such, it depends on listeners like you to support new
initiatives, and so I hope that you will tune in and pass the good word along to your friends and family. Keep in mind that if you miss the premiere broadcast, you will be able to download the show as an MP3 from WREK’s archives for the following week <>; after that, you will be able to download it as a podcast from <>.

Thanks in advance for helping make this show a success.

Let me know what you think of the show. Thanks!
