If you’ve always wanted to volunteer at WRIR, but don’t know where to start, why not hangout with our volunteers who are part of our Production Committee? Yeah, not the most exciting name, but what they do is exciting and beneficial to the station! The goal of the team is to train WRIR volunteers on audio production and editing using Audacity and Audition. You get hands on experience creating station IDs, promos and possibly run sound for a band or show host. People who are interested in hosting a talk show learn how to create a pilot and then ultimately a show. Current volunteers hone their skills to make their shows sound as pristine as Ira Glass.

They met every Saturday, 2-4pm, at the station, 1621 W. Broad Street, 2nd floor, above The Camel. Best to email the team to let them know you are interested:

Thanks to Baylen for starting the team and Cameron and Krysti for leading the weekly hangouts.

In April, Senator Tim Kaine visited WRIR’s studios for an exclusive interview with the hosts of Open Source RVA. Senator Kaine talked about the resolution that he wrote when he was mayor of Richmond that helped to put WRIR and low power radio on the map. And yes, Don did ask about his potential nomination as vice president. You can hear the two part interview at the show’s on soundcloud. Open Source RVA is WRIR’s weekly news show. Don hosts the show with a variety of others who talk about the city’s theater scene, restaurants and happenings. Follow them on Facebook @OpenSourceRVA to see who else will come into WRIR’s studios for an interview. Open Source RVA airs every Friday, 2-3p, and repeats on Sunday, 7a.

I can’t tell you how many times, someone suggests that WRIR should do a talk show about Richmond’s thriving music scene. It only makes sense. We’re the only radio station who regularly plays Richmond bands. Our live studio hosts a who’s who of Richmond rockers. Our volunteers and listeners are part of the city’s talent pool. Ladies and gentleman, presenting Tympanum Effect: a show that highlights the creative people who enrich our city’s music scenes and delves into lesser known territories of song and sound. Hosted by JR and guest producers, it airs every other Saturday at 5pm. JR shares why this show will help Richmond’s music scene and offers insights to anyone interested in hosting a program on WRIR.
