Breakfast Blend w/ Galaxy Girl & Friends

Galaxy Girl – Special Fund Drive Covers Edition – 20160421


I’ve been working on a covers show for this week’s Fund Drive show, and, in true clickbait form, “You’ll be AMAZED by the songs you’ll hear. Number 6 will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!”

But in all seriousness, WRIR has changed my life for the better, and I hope that in some small way it has done the same for you. Please consider making a donation to keep us running for another 6 months. We’re all volunteer, so your donations aren’t going to any fancy salaries. We pretty much just ask for what we need to keep the lights on, keep the equipment running, pay our broadcasting fees, and plan for incremental improvements where we can make them.

You can make a secure donation right here on our website. Just click on either the “Donate One Time” or the “Donate Monthly” button depending on what best suits your budget. And feel free to tell us what you love about WRIR! Thanks for listening & enjoy the show!
