Rochester Free Radio is a community, non-commercial radio station run by volunteers to provide locally-focused, locally-created information, conversation and entertainment.  The goal of RFR is to help solidify the Rochester community by enjoying and celebrating our similarities and differences; our strengths and weaknesses; our ideas and curiosities.

Rochester Free Radio, was created by three members of the community, each with varying degrees of experience in broadcast radio and community activism.  Chuck McCoy, Jeff Moulton and Dave Sutliff-Atias recognized the need for opportunities for unheard individuals and groups to be heard by the rest of Rochester.

Rochester Free Radio broadcasts so that everyone in our community has the chance to interact and exchange ideas for the betterment of the entire community; in particular, those who do not presently have a voice in our local mainstream media.


Rochester Free Radio embraces the diversity of our community. Therefore, all shows on Rochester Free Radio are produced independently and things said on individual shows do not reflect the opinion of the Board of RFR, other show hosts, volunteers, or underwriters. Our guidelines for show content are posted here, and are available at our station. If you are offended by anything said on any of our shows, please give us constructive criticism, but we also encourage you to submit a proposal for your own show on RFR.
