The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's radio station is selling off thousands of its collection of CDs in the wake of technological advances.

From June 21-23, all of the radio station's CDs are on sale.

"Our entire library has been digitized, so we still have all the great music our listeners have grown to love," WUTC station manager Bryan Lane said in a press release. "We would just like to personally share it with them and use their donations to bring even more growth to the radio station."

WUTC-FM 88.1 has about 15,000 CDs for $3, including many that are "out-of-print and difficult to find elsewhere," university spokesman Shawn Ryan said.

"The CDs run the gamut of music, including classic and modern rock, jazz, reggae, blues, world music, you name it," he said. "There's also a huge selection of specialty box sets."

Sales go toward WUTC fundraising efforts, he said.

The sale takes place on UTC's campus in Cadek Hall on Oak Street.

Sale hours are:

  • 3-8 p.m. Friday, June 21

  • 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, June 22

  • 2-5 p.m. Sunday, June 23.
