WRIR Presents a Richmond Music History Tour Saturday September 27th, 2014.
Think you know a lot about Richmond’s music history? Let WRIR show you more. On Saturday September 27th WRIR presents A Richmond Music History Walking Tour. Music historians Dr. Gregg Kimball, Don Harrison and Ray Bonis will take you on a walking journey through our city’s bright jewels and dark corners where music has been, and continues to be made. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today »
Techno and jazz. World music and punk. Soul and folk and straight-up rock ’n’ roll. All types of music have a home at WRIR.
WRIR airs underrepresented news and views in order to provide a platform for cultural diversity in Richmond.
80% of WRIRs funding comes from listener donations. You don't have to wait for our bi-annual fund drive to join in. Click here to donate anytime.
Live music performances from local and national artists as close as your FM dial.
Locally produced news and talk programs with a focus on the Richmond community.
Powered by the Richmond community. All of our music programs are created by volunteer DJs and aired live.
Another great week of shows is in store for Richmond and you can get a heads up tonight on Activate! at 7pm (or if you listen to the podcast). I'll include tracks by Iron Reagan and Prisoner who are playing a benefit for Freeman, as well as new tracks from Christi and One Friend (pictured). Plus, I'll give away tickets to see Citizen, You Blew It!, and Hostage Calm at The Broadberry!
