WUVT's music library has been growing non-stop since the 1940s, and the studio in Squires Student Center is home to all of it. Vinyl, compact discs, and cassette tapes line the walls, ceiling to floor, in hallways, closets, and studios. Some locations are harder to see and access, so the music there gets less play time. Tune in for two hours of these out-of-sight, out-of-mind tracks with DJ MC.
