AMR hits the Big 4-0 and other happenings

What a journey it has been

We plan to celebrate this special anniversary Saturday, July 10, at Discovery Junction in Marlinton – right beside the Opera House. Our gathering will be part of the Pioneer Days celebration. But before we get there, we want to share our story with you.

Unique By Nature is a four-part podcast series produced by Sage Tanguay. We got first-hand accounts from the men and women who dreamed big enough and worked hard enough to make community radio in the Allegheny Highlands a reality.

The first episode of Unique By Nature will air Friday, June 18, during the 9 o’clock hour of Bradley in the Morning. We invite you to tune in and catch up with some familiar voices from AMR’s past and hear what current and former AMR staff have to say about the future. Tune in every Friday during Bradley in the Morning starting June 18.

You can catch Inside Appalachia Saturday at 7 a.m. and Sunday at 6 a.m. Heather Niday’s latest story for the IA Folklife Project will debut as part of Inside Appalachia this weekend. Heather has produced several stories for this project including profiles of Bill Hefner, Trevor Hammons and the West Virginia Forest Farming Initiative. You can find more of the Folklife Project stories at wvpublic.org

We also have tickets to give away.

We have one pair of tickets to the Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass concert at the Blackburn Inn in Staunton for Friday, June 18, at 7 p.m.

We’ll draw for the winner at 8:45 a.m. Friday, June 18. You can call any of the Allegheny Mountain Radio stations to get your name on the list – WVMR at 304-799-6004, WVLS at 540-468-1234 or WCHG at 540-839-5400.

As always, thanks for all of your support!
