1961 Program Schedule

I began listening to WRWR in the early 1970s when I was about six years old. The station did not have any national radio network affiliation and played softer contemporary music and top-40 hits. There was a five-minute newscast at the top of each hour and headlines at the bottom. The station called itself “Information Radio 94.” Local features abounded, like “Bulletin Board,” with area news and club announcements at 50 minutes past the hour. Advertising was only local. The station signed on each morning at 6:00 AM and signed off at 10:00 PM.
