The Friends Support WRR


Founded in 1921, WRR is the second-oldest radio station in America. WRR 101.1 has been continuously playing classical music since 1964.

The Friends of WRR was formed in 1978 and incorporated in 1990 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization benefiting WRR and arts organizations across North Texas.


What Do Friends Do?

We support WRR, the voice of the arts in North Texas, by partnering with arts organizations to increase awareness of all arts programs.


Friends help the station by attending WRR and Friends events in support of the arts in North Texas.


The Friends of WRR directly sponsors commercial-free hours of classical music every week on WRR.

Your support helps the community through our scholarship program for music students and our instrument drive providing instruments to students in need.


A mobile radio broadcasting van was purchased to enable the station to broadcast directly in the community.
