Asheville FM 103.3 is a volunteer-supported and operated community radio station. No 5-minute commercial breaks between every 3 songs! How do we do it? Thru the generosity of good listeners like you. Let's just assume that I'll play 60 songs you love in any given 6 months. That amounts to $5 toward our Spring Fund Drive by old jukebox rates. If you're using modern money that's still a measly $20. I'll be making my late-in-the-week pitch for your support on-air and in-person today from 11a-1p ET. Go ahead and be a sport.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ashevillefm.org/riffin/05/2016/spring-fund-drive-2016" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.ashevillefm.org/riffin/05/2016/spring-fund-drive-2016#comments Thu, 05 May 2016 12:28:46 +0000 Vance Pollock 16162 at http://www.ashevillefm.org Radio Is Fun Again! http://www.ashevillefm.org/ultimate-twang/05/2016/radio-is-fun-again <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-blog-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="720" height="1280" title="Me" alt="It&#039;s me!" src="http://www.ashevillefm.org/sites/default/files/blog_post/115/IMG_20130418_174909_402.jpg?1462421795" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-dj-show"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/ultimate-twang">Ultimate Twang</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Join me at 4p ET, today, for a new Ultimate Twang show, 3 hours of the best classic country music you will find on the radio or online!
