Rochester Free Radio - 106.3 FM - WRFZ-LP

Let's get together and start talking about Rochester Free Radio!

So far 3 of our Interest Groups have gotten together and they've been phenomenal!  The Music Show IG, Talk Show IG and Fundraising IG met and among the highlights are:

*The Fundraising IG talked through our upcoming crowdfunding campaign.  Looks like we're going to be kicking it off on Saturday, September 6th.  And to help publicize it (and the station) we're going to do some flyering at the Public Market beforehand.  A great idea!

*People at the Music Show IG talked about what kind of shows they had in mind.  It sounds like we have some really eclectic stuff coming to the station.

*At the Talk Show IG, ideas for shows included, Transgender issues; repurposed goods; philosophy, atheism & cats and a whole lot more!

Really exciting stuff!

So we have some more Interest Groups that still need to get together, so how about:

Publicity & Marketing Interest Group
Thursday, August 7th, 6:30 - 8pm
Spot Coffee
200 East Avenue

News Reporting Interest GroupRFR Skyline of Rochester
Sunday, August 10th, 2 - 3:30pm
Equal Grounds
750 South Avenue

These get togethers are not mandatory by any means.  We're just hanging out and sharing ideas, getting to know one another.  Having said that, we hope you can come!At our volunteer meetings, people signed up for various Interest Groups.  The purpose of these groups is to informally get together to discuss ways to help each other create shows, keep the station functioning and more.  You did not have to sign up for these groups to come to a get together.  Any and all are welcome.

Spread the word. 

Rochester Free Radio is coming!!!

Did you read the City Newspaper article about Community Radio in Rochester? Half of it is about us!

Rochester Free Radio will be 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 will broadcast 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.

We have our construction permit and will be on the air by the fall of 2014.  Want to get involved?  Click here.

    WFRE emphasizes the ‘free’ and does seem to be the easiest to say.
