Concert on the Green Friday, July 23

Free Vermont Radio will present The Mammals in concert on Friday, July 23rd at 7PM on the South Royalton Green.

Hailing from New York’s Hudson Valley region, The Mammals have been touring the States for nearly 20 years with multiple recording credits including their latest album “Nonet” that received very positive reviews from respected music critics.

Attendees are welcome to hang out anywhere on the Green for this special event with the “entry gate” to the Upper Pass Beer Garden opening at 6PM. WFVR will have staff at the gate who will be happy to receive a suggested donation of $15 to help offset the guarantee for the band and other related expenses.

This is a rain or shine event and remember that there is a “No Dogs” policy in place for The Green. Any questions can be directed to info@royaltonradio.org.

WFVR-LP is pleased to welcome two "new" shows to our community radio airwaves: "Red Barn Radio" hosted by Jeremy Frost and "The Rabbit Hole" hosted by Shay Berry.

Jeremy is a returning alumna of the station with Red Barn Radio which often targets a specific theme or genre of music for it's one hour of diverse broadcasting. RBR now airs on Wednesdays from 7-8PM with a rebroadcast Fridays at 11AM.

Shay brings a wealth of musical knowledge to his new show "The Rabbit Hole" which will take the listener to many eclectic stops on the expansive music continuum. You ponder...then get ready to wander down "The Rabbit Hole" every Wednesday from 8-9PM with a rebroadcast on Sundays from 2-3PM.
