Check-in and ride times for the Sunday, September 12th 3PVIII rides are as follows. Check-in table will be at the Ellis Bandstand on the South Royalton Green.

Free Vermont Radio welcomes two new shows!

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.
