WRIR's Fall '09 Fund Drive starts today at 5 PM. This is our tenth Fund Drive since officially going on the air on January 1, 2005, and it's going to be the best one yet. We'll have great premiums to give to our donors, great food to share with folks who come by our studios (1621-B West Broad Street), and more great live music than ever before.

Greatest of all are the thousands of generous listeners who have donated to make Richmond Independent Radio an improbable reality for almost five years now. Yes, we have over 150 volunteers (and never forget, one paid employee), but we literally can't do it without your support. That's why we come to you twice a year with a simple message: If you value locally-owned, volunteer-driven, independent-minded media, please donate what you can afford and keep it happening in your own community.

Speaking of great live music, we're pleased to kick off the Fall '09 Fund Drive with a live performance by Richmond's salsa machine, Bio Ritmo (pictured above, photo by Chris Smith). Not only is Bio Ritmo one of Richmond's favorite bands; they're also one of the most exciting and innovative Latin groups in the US, and they're damn tired of being asked what a group like them is doing in Richmond.

I have lots of special premiums for Global A Go-Go listeners who donate during my program; click "Read More" for all the details and to see today's tracklist. And to those who are about to donate: we salute you! Please call (804) 622-9747, or just click below:
