Donate to the WRIR 2015 Spring Fund Drive


Beginning Friday, April 10, WRIR, Richmond’s independent volunteer radio station, will call on listeners for financial support through April 21. The station’s fund drive will feature special talk and music programs, including performances broadcast live from the station’s West Broad Street studios. The station’s goal is to raise at least $35,000 to meet operating expenses.

To celebrate, WRIR will broadcast 15 live in studio music performances during its Spring Fund Drive. Most of WRIR’s live broadcasts will emanate from the station’s brand new Studio C, a live broadcast facility made possible by donations and grants and scheduled for completion this week.
