Here’s Your Route 66 Playlist for Sunday, October 15, 2017

There’s a real taste of autumn in the air as we get ready for WRFG’s Fall Pledge Drive.

As you know, Atlanta’s WRFG 89.3 FM is not your “normal” radio station. We don’t sell commercials  We don’t have big corporate underwriters. We’re not owned by a college or local school system. We are an independent, progressive community radio station. That means we’re listener supported, the same as we’ve been since we went on the air in 1973.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help keep us alive and free. Pledging is easy. You can use our website, wrfg.org, or call us at 404-523-8989.

Either way, tell ’em Route 66 sent ya.

Thanks!
