‘Hear Together’ Presents: Hearing Hidden Voices

Hearing Hidden Voices is a three-part Hear Together series committed to amplifying voices in our community, even when the spotlight has been turned off.

These interviews were recorded and produced in late 2019 by Desire Moses and music was provided by Richmond’s Spacebomb house band.

Dead Air II is Out Now!

WNRN Presents: Dead Air 2 captures the joyfully raucous atmosphere of our second annual Central Virginia tribute to the music of the Grateful Dead. On November 22nd, 2019 at the historic Academy Theatre in Lynchburg VA, 23 Central VA bands (plus a few special guests!) stepped on stage to perform a song from the vast Grateful Dead catalog. The concert itself was an enormous undertaking, featuring over 100 musicians on stage, and it was captured flawlessly by our friends at Blue Sprocket.  ORDER NOW to get the full album as a digital download, CD, or  limited edition LP. Your purchase also includes a one-year membership to WNRN and access to our member-only VIP mailing list. Scroll down to see the track listing, sample tracks, and videos from the concert!
