Exciting news! We have just gotten our antenna! We'll be working on getting it up on the roof of the Armory in early September. This doesn't mean we'll be broadcasting then, but it's a huge step in getting there.
It's time to get together again. The RFR board members thought we should all get together to update everyone on progress, get feedback and plan for our next steps. So we're scheduling a General Meeting for Saturday, August 30th from 1 - 3pm. It will be at the Flying Squirrel Community Center, 285 Clarissa St. We'll have news about the studio, fundraising and more.
Spread the word.

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.
