What does WRAS mean?

WRAS
WRAS is a college radio station in Atlanta with a frequency of 88.5MHz, which has been in operation since January 18, 1971. It is owned by Georgia State University and its on-air staff are all GSU students, with the exception of those who broadcast the university's athletic events for the station. WRAS has the highest power of any student-staffed radio station in the world — a distinction it now shares with WREK at Georgia Tech in Atlanta since October 2011. The station's first general manager was Richard Belcher, well-known to Atlanta TV viewers for his investigative reporting on WAGA-TV 5, and now WSB-TV 2. The "Album 88" name dates back to the late 1970s, and is unusual, as it is still rare for noncommercial stations in North America to use a moniker, the way commercial stations have for decades. It refers to the album-based rotation the station employs: stressing several cuts from each album rather than a single. The station is non-commercial educational, with the only breaks in between songs being song listings, public service announcements, promos for various WRAS shows, brief news segments, and community affairs shows.
