What Our Listeners are Saying

WNRN is the first station on my dial and the only station that offers that ‘just’ right’ blend of artists I love and new music discoveries. Music news and local sponsors are also reasons I enjoy listening to NRN have been a faithful listener for the past 13 years.
Nathan F., Charlottesville, VA
When we moved to Cville six years ago, we didn’t really have strong community ties. About a year after our move, we started volunteering at the station, and it finally felt like we were home. Now five years later, some of our best local friends came from relationships built through NRN. Thanks for helping to make Charlottesville a true community for us!
Kristy and Adam, Charlottesville, VA
I love the mix of new and older music!! I moved to Harrisonburg a year ago from Maryland and there is nothing like WNRN there. I listen to it daily. It’s amazing to me that this station can bring so much musical joy to me!
Karen S., Harrisonburg, VA
Best music radio station I’ve ever heard. Love the range of new music, the local commitment, and of course the giveaways! Thanks for keeping the spirit of good radio alive and for giving back to nonprofits with the community connection.
Laura A., Fredericksburg, VA
I was introduced to WNRN by my girlfriend, just as we first started dating. You could say we fell in love to many of the songs played on this station. She’s currently serving overseas but we can still listen to the online stream together. Thanks WNRN!
Ben P., Milton, FL
WNRN provides great music and supports our incredible local music scene as well. As music lovers and musicians, we appreciate both!
Keith and Jennifer M., Charlottesville, VA
Best station ever! It’s that simple. (I have pledged regularly since spring of 2004 and even listened/pledged when I lived in North Carolina for a few years, though we’re back in Cville now.)
Seamane F., Charlottesville, VA
WNRN is the only station where we can hear the artists and music we love. And of course Grateful Dead and Phriends on Saturday mornings!

It’s more than a radio station – it’s our morning ritual; highly respect the music choices made by Anne Williams. Thanks for bringing in World Cafe – now we stay tuned to WNRN morning and evening. Awesome station!
