WRIR-FM One-Year-Old

The following notice came in from WRIR, Richmond's Indie radio station:

WRIR [97.3 FM], has been on the air for a year. To mark the occasion the local community radio station is throwing a party on Feb. 3 at The Renaissance (formerly The Cornerstone), 107 W. Broad St. The event, which coincides with the next First Fridays Art Walk, is open to the public from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Local bands Special Ed and the Short Bus, VCR, The Cheap Seats and Hotel X will be on hand for the celebration. The party also marks an opportunity for the public to meet the people behind the microphones who give WRIR its truly distinctive on-air voice. A $5.00 donation is suggested and all proceeds will go to help fund the station’s programming and operational costs. WRIR is a nonprofit, all volunteer-operated radio project of the Virginia Center for Public Press.
