If you’ve listened to 96.9 on your radio dial in Baton Rouge, you’ve probably noticed that our signal is nowhere on par with WFMF, WYNK, or even KLSU. That’s because we are a different kind of radio station. We are a “low power FM” or LPFM station, for short. We have 100 watts of power, similar to that of an old light bulb. Like that light bulb, we want to use that 100 watts to illuminate, not just a room, but a whole community.
Baton Rouge Community Radio needs the community to succeed.
We aren’t talking about money, though that is always welcome. (See the donation box on the side to help us get our internet stream running.) We need your eyes. We need to know what is great about Baton Rouge so we can share it with the rest of the city. We need your ears. We want to know the sounds around town that are undiscovered that should be shared with our city. We need your voice. We need you to help tell these stories, be it by recording interviews, connecting us with the people that you know, or hosting a show of your own.
We have this great canvas for the community. Don’t let it go to waste. If you would like to have a show on WHYR, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to help out in other capacities, send us an e-mail to email@example.com.
