I’m happy to say we are continuing to get good local publicity about WWER.  This week, we are featured in the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.  It’s a very nice article and hopefully it will make more people aware that we exist!  We’ve certainly gotten some good word of mouth publicity, and if you like us, I […]

If you weren’t able to attend, or maybe even if you were, you can listen to our coverage of the event!  Our Program Director Tom Larson attended and recorded the festivities!  Yes, there will be the speeches, but you’ll also hear the voices of a number of your neighbors. The segment ends with a interview […]

Welcome to YOUR radio station.  Tune to 88.1 FM and enjoy! At midnight Friday night, WWER went on the air – live!  Ted, Charlie, Dave L, and Tom said a few words to mark the occassion.  We clinked our champagne glasses and engaged our automation system to carry us through our first week.  You can […]

This afternoon, our station manager Ted Tait and several of his minions performed the first end-to-end test of Colonial Beach Community Radio.  The computer in our Chamber of Commerce studio, sent a demo play list audio stream to the tower and out over the airwaves.  When that happened, three middle-aged men were jumping and high-fiving […]

I realize it’s been a little while since you’ve heard from us and you might think we have run out of steam.  Quite the contrary – So much is going on that it’s hard to know where to start.  The last piece of paperwork related to transferring the license of WWER to the Colonial Beach […]

I’m happy to announce that on May 8, the FCC approved the assignment of license for WWER to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation!  Our radio station is soon to become a reality!  I will be meeting with the current licensee on Friday to discuss the logistics of transition.  We are on track for our official […]

Do rainy days make you want to listen to the radio?  I hope so.  As I write this, it is pouring in Colonial Beach – again!  Seems like a good time to be sitting on the porch listening to the radio!  We are hard at work coming up with show ideas that we hope you […]

We got our first press coverage in the April 3rd Edition of Westmoreland News.  Reporter and Colonial Beach resident Suzy Pietras-Smith attended the organizational meeting on March 30th, and filed the story below. Funny thing was, I didn’t spot it myself but had it called to my attention by somebody in my building at work […]
