Radiopalooza is WHYR’s annual festival fundraiser. Currently, every bit of work that goes into keeping WHYR on the air is done by volunteers—that’s tens of thousands of volunteer hours each year.
Festival admission is free this year, but we will be selling merchandise and accepting donations to help us reach our minimum annual fundraising goal of $30,000, which covers basic station operation costs.
So, please RSVP to Radiopalooza on Facebook, mark your calendar, and tell your friends!
Thank you for your past, current and continued support of Baton Rouge Community Radio. We don’t exist without you.
