WRFI Radio Striding Ahead

WRFI community radio is a great new reason to listen to radio in Ithaca. The station has been busy creating new programming, and it seems every time we tune in there is something engaging, among both the news and the music shows.

Our current favorite is The Joe Show, with our friend Joe Romano, Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Joe is old and new school, both, with the music he plays and the way he presents it, with plenty of verve and charm.

Joe is Marketing Manager at GreenStar Coop, and we sense he is helping RFI heighten its profile. Recently he broadcast live from a roller derby bout. If that isn't community radio, what is?

We have heard that RFI will have a contingent striding in the Ithaca Festival parade next Wednesday. Go look at them, listen to the station, and take one of the many opportunities to get involved with this exciting and valuable venture. WRFI 88.1 FM has a website and a Facebook page.
