WRKE Releases Updated Music Library

Salem, VA (WRKE) —WRKE is excited to announce it’s 650 songs, including 500 new songs that will be played on WRKE when DJ’s are not on the air. The new library features alternative/indie music with artists such as the Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, and Foster the People. The list was compiled by music director Kait Mason and program director Elijah Wilhelm. “I think Kait and I really wanted to find music that would make people happy.” Wilhelm said, “All of these songs mean a lot to us and although the lyrics can be very deep, if you just listen to the beat of the music, then most of the songs will put you in a great mood and with all of the stress that we, as students, face on a daily basis, I think that the feel good factor and the escape that this music can bring to our listeners is really important. I am really proud of Kait and all of the hard work that she has put into this and I really think listeners are going to love it. But even if this isn’t their preferred genre, we have a variety of shows that play a wide range of music so we truly have something for everyone.” A special thank you to assistant PD, Jillian Thompson for all of her work in helping to ensure all of the music upheld WRKE’s high decency standards.

  1. Do you all play any Christian music? Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, isreal Houghton, Michael W. Smith or Amy Grant or Ryan Stevenson would be good!

    Hi Susan. We don’t currently have any Christian shows! You can certainly request any DJ to play a song though!
