Abstract: Millimeter and radio-wave facilities built and operated by the NRAO have played a major role in increasing our understanding of the interstellar medium and radio continuum properties of luminous IR galaxy (LIRG) mergers and quasi-stellar object (QSO) hosts. This review focuses primarily on molecular gas (CO) surveys of the local (z < 0.3) population of both galaxy classes and the relevance of these observations to their star-formation properties.
