Robert Vincent Morea III founded melodically challenged in May of 2006, after he had been appointed program director of WRAS, the largest all student run radio station in the country. He had been born with Cystic Fibrosis and had received a double lung transplant three-and-a-half years earlier. He contracted an infection shortly after he began the show and passed away June 20, 2006. Robert was awarded his B.A. in English posthumously from Georgia State University. This show is dedicated to Robert Morea and we hope to be able to award scholarships for poets and students who participate in college radio in his name in the future.
