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.
