POP Goes The Fund Drive!


Did you know that WRIR is THE BIGGEST , and MOST SUCCESSFUL LPFM radio station IN THE COUNTRY?

It is.
As much as I'd like to believe it's because of the amazing programs, Like POP Goes The World, it's really because of the amazing support we've gotten for YOU, our listeners!
YOU'RE the reason we're the most successful LPFM radio station in the country!
That's why we don't mind asking for your continued support twice a year, because you've told us how much you appreciate what we've done for the community, and recognize the impact we've had on the cultural community.
We will now kick off our 10 day celebration of our little radio station that could with a live, in studio performance from California Death!
