“WNRNRNRW…doesn’t mean anything — it’s just a cool palindrome.”- Ed Monde

Wait a sec, what is Dead Air?!

Glad you asked! Dead Air was more than just a concert for WNRN – it was a gathering of 22 Virginia bands all playing a different Grateful Dead tune in collaboration with our friends at The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville (itself, also a non-profit), and a showcase for 22 non-profits making a difference in our communities in many different ways (and benefitting from a raffle of Dead and other music related items held that night).
