HELLO LISTENERS OF WVKR,
First and foremost our station would like to recognize the end of one of our longest running shows, ‘Radio Showtime’. For 30 years Bill Eberle has been providing our listeners with old time radio shows from the 40s, 50s and 60s every Sunday evening. For the time being, Bill will continue his Wednesday morning show, ‘Classic Country’.
This summer we have been a bit quiet on the social media but, as per usual, LOUD on the airwaves. Our summer programming has been full of the voices of our beloved community DJs, a few dedicated student DJs, and some new voices contributing to the eclectic mix of radio that you love. In the coming weeks our station will transition from summer programming to the fall program. This means that many DJs will return, packing our program with shows from early in the morning to late at night, and the annual WVKR PLEDGE DRIVE will commence.
From September 3rd to September 9th we’re asking our listeners to show their support and help us keep our station running. Without our annual Pledge Drive we wouldn’t be able to bring you commercial-free independent radio, so please consider pledging online or by phone during this wild week of radio. We will be offering premiums of all shapes and colors to thank our faithful listeners for your donations. Stay tuned to find out more about the type and design of these exciting gifts.
The incoming 2019-2020 executive board is excited to get to work to contribute to a fantastic year of independent radio!
