Favorite station all the time! Especially love Dead Show and Fresh Roots New Blues. Thank you for playing great music!

I love this station! My favorite part is hearing about local bands I love and finding out about new artists I wouldn’t be exposed to on other stations. Thank you so much!

Love you guys! I can’t begin to tell you them amount of music I have discovered since I started listening. Keep up the great work!
Jeff C., Madison Heights, VA
Moved to Lynchburg from NYC almost 5 years ago and as a music lover I was thrilled to find WNRN. It is like WNRN was curated to my own personal tastes in music. A great source for new music and a huge asset for Central Virginia. WNRN stacks up with best radio stations in the country. Thank you for all that you do!
Dan H., Lynchburg, VA
My whole family supports WNRN. It is practically the only station we listen to. Even our college student, on his Ramen budget, donates monthly. Thank you WNRN.
Tara W., Lynchburg, VA
This will be my third year of membership with WNRN, still the best radio station I have ever listened to. Love listening to Tad and Melissa’s shows while I’m working. Thanks for all the great music, and for the community support.
Tom, Charlottesville, VA
We have listened and supported WNRN forever. Evenings we used to switch channels for World Cafe — now, we never have to change the channel. Will continue to support this station for the wonderful music, and generous and knowledgeable people who run WNRN. It is our station!
Catherine, Manakin Sabot, VA
I love WNRN. I listen now matter where I live or travel. This station is one of my all-time favorite things. Thanks for being so amazing, WNRN!
Kate T., Tampa, FL
I’ve listened to different programs on WNRN for many years. Growing up in Amherst County fifteen years ago, I listened to Acoustic Sunrise and the Saturday night Boombox show. During college in Charlottesville, I continued as an enthusiastic listener of the station including the bluegrass Sunday morning show. I’ve lived in New York now for ten years and listen to the general program nearly everyday on the app and particularly like the World Cafe. I really appreciate the diverse content that I can’t find anywhere else.
Justin N., New York, NY
I love WNRN. I listen now matter where I live or travel. This station is one of my all-time favorite things. Thanks for being so amazing, WNRN!
Kate T. , Tampa, FL
Best music on the radio. Great current songs blended with great older stuff. Dead and Phriends on Saturday must listen show. But you are my go to music station any time of the day.
Jay and Laura, Charlottesville, VA
By far my favorite radio station I have ever listened to. You guys never play a bad song and I continue to grow my music library because of you guys. I absolutely love it!
Jordan N., Charlottesville, VA
For the great on-air music, live shows, and community support! Independent radio is crucial to the fabric of the Central Virginia community!
Neil B., Sweet Briar, VA
Good morning, WNRN! Your wonderfully rich, eclectic and inspiring music/programming is very much appreciated here in Richmond! Many of us have been listening for years and carry WNRN with us around the home and to the workplace. Many-a-day will start with ‘Acoustic Sunrise’ and wind-down with the ‘World Café’. Keep up the fantastic work – Richmond loves what y’all do at WNRN!
Jonathan G., Richmond, VA
I grew up around Charlottesville and have listened to WNRN as long as it’s been on the air. Traveling and living in other places, I’ve realized how unique and amazing my hometown radio station is. I still stream it and tell my friends.
Jenica F., Cedar City, UT
