Despite everything the past year has thrown at us, we at WNRN have remained committed to connecting you with the artists that you love. In 2020, that meant re-imagining our in studio sessions while working from home. Despite the technical snafus and challenges that cropped up along the way, there were undeniable moments of magic and we’ve captured 15 of these performances in an extremely limited edition collection on CD and digital download we’re calling In Studio at WNRN Vol. 9: Home Studio Sessions. Scroll down to check out the tracklist and read notes from our GM Mark Keefe.

From Mark Keefe, GM & Programming Director, WNRN:
In 2020, we were all faced with answering questions and solving problems that, a year earlier, would have been absurd. For example: How do you have an in-studio session when there’s no one in the studio? It’s an important question considering that these sessions provide the source material for the CDs we create for you each year. The answer? Conduct these sessions the same way we did everything else  – from home. Through our revamped home studio sessions, we virtually visited with the bands and musicians who couldn’t stop by and play live. But they kept playing, just like we kept playing their music, and you kept listening — and donating. Thank you for your support, which allowed us to continue doing the things that you tune in for – making great independent music radio happen no matter what happens around us. I want to make sure to acknowledge all of our staff for their hard work and dedication to WNRN and you, our members. We hope to see you, soon.
