On April 10th, 1974, WCLK began broadcasting from what was then called Clark College. Over the next few decades, the radio station provided mostly jazz, but also community news, gospel and other jazz genres to the Atlanta community.

On today’s edition of “Closer Look,” host Rose Scott discusses the station’s cultural impact with Jamal Ahmad, the host of S.O.U.L. of Jazz.
