With STU-COMM Triple A WNRN/CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA’s new translator is now up and running in RICHMOND, the station is lining up several initiatives to increase its presence in the market.
First off, they are sponsoring the GROOVIN IN THE GARDEN series at LEWIS GINTER BOTANICAL GARDENS: some of the acts that will perform there during the eight-week series include SHARON JONES, JAKOB DYLAN, ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA and ARLO GUTHRIE.
This week the station has also announced a partnership with SOUND OF MUSIC RECORDING STUDIO also based in Richmond. Owned by DAVID LOWERY (CRACKER, CAMPER VAN BEETHOVEN), they will be using the studio to catch bands who come through RICHMOND for in-studios and listener events. Their first event is going to be on SATURDAY, MAY 8th with MINUS THE BEAR ... and LOWERY will be conducting the interview!
