Music Librarian Drew Gatto is the host of a new radio program, “Tracks from the Stacks,” set to debut on Wednesday, January 16th from 1:00 until 2:00 pm on WPEA, the campus radio station.  The program will be broadcast during the same time each Wednesday for the duration of the winter and spring terms.

Tracks from the Stacks” will feature music from the CD collection held in the Academy Library. The show will be organized around the theme of “musical connections,” wherein all of the tracks played will relate to a single theme. Drew will provide brief explanations of these connections between tracks, and playlists (including information on how to find each featured CD in the Library) will be posted online for those who are interested in further exploring the music featured on a particular show.  In addition, Circulation Coordinator Marilyn Bott will create accessible displays in the Library so that patrons can easily find CDs used during the previous week’s program. The first show will feature a tribute to the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. in anticipation of the Academy-wide celebration of his birthday scheduled for Friday, January 18th.  

Drew welcomes suggestions for future programs and hopes that you’ll join him “on the air” this month!

This year’s Seniors were allowed out on the Library’s terrace for the first time in many years. Academy Librarian, Gail Scanlon, invited all the participants in the Time Capsule Ceremony to come out on the terrace to enjoy the wonderful weather and admire the view from the 4th floor of the Library. Many of the Class of 2012 enjoyed the time to look through the time capsules they had crafted when they were in their first year at Exeter.
