Rochester Free Radio - 106.3 FM - WRFZ-LP

We had a great turnout at our volunteer meetings last week!  Not only did 28 people come, but more emailed us to tell us that they couldn't make either of the sessions, but for us not to forget about them.  We won't! 

The word continues to spread about WRFZ-LP and we're getting more and more people interested in participating in Rochester's upcoming alternative to mainstream news and entertainment.

At the Volunteer Meetings, people had the opportunity to put their names down for a number of Interest Groups.  They were:

  • Music Shows
  • Talk Shows
  • News Team
  • Publicity / Marketing / Social Media
  • Infrastructure / I.T. / Gear
  • Fundraising

These Interest Groups are just opportunities for people who are interested in participating in these capacities to get together and brainstorm ideas on ways for Rochester Free Radio to start in the best possible position from Day One.  We're going to start getting the groups together in a couple of weeks.  Stay tuned for details. 

If you weren't at either of the meetings or were at the meetings and didn't sign up for any of the groups.  Feel free to reply to this email and let us know what you're interested in and we'll be happy to add you to those lists.

Questions & comments can be sent to rochesterfreeradio [at] gmail [dot] com or (585) 457-5736.

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 summer of 2014.  Want to get involved?  Click here.

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