Happy MLK weekend to all of our listeners. I wanted to let you know that the problems we were having earlier with our stream (for listeners online using Alexa, Roku, etc.) have been resolved. If you restart your stream now it will sound much better! Thanks for your patience!

Long time listeners may already know that the Foundation was instrumental in creating WWER. We are just one of many success stories […]

Join us for a fresh episode of Porch Talk: […]
If you missed the on air broadcasts of Quarantined, it is now available in our online archives on Mixcloud. Quarantined is the latest radio play from our friends at the Colonial Beach Playhouse. We’d like to thank them very much for their efforts in producing this Christmas gift to everyone!
Next on our survey, we wanted to get some insight into how and why you listen. We know we don’t have a lot of online listeners (although this number is growing), and the survey showed that most of our listeners use good old fashioned radios. We also wanted to know what you like most about […]
