LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 25, 2018)—Ever wondered what it’s like to sit in as a guest on Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio? Thanks to a University of Kentucky (UK) student’s virtual reality project you now can.

Paidin Dermody, 2017–18 editor-in-chief of the Kentucky Kernel, UK’s student-run newspaper, featured Matt Wickstrom and Wick’s Picks for her final project in a virtual reality storytelling class. Dermody stopped in the studio to film on April 4, when Louisville’s Mama Said String Band were guests on the program.

View Dermody’s project below, which provides background on Wickstrom and Wick’s Picks along with a performance from Mama Said String Band. Listen to Wick’s Picks every Wednesday from 9-10 a.m. on 93.9 FM Lexington Community Radio and online and lexingtoncommunityradio.org.
