    Is this still accurate for music submissions?

  9. Hi!
    As I was driving home today, 9/5/18, between 3 and 4pm, listening to the Roar (as usual!) 2 particularly great songs played in a row, and I figured out one of them, Texas (by Jennifer Castle) but the song right before that was hauntingly beautiful, and I’d love to find out who it was. I can’t find a playlist for today.

    THANKS, and I hope you all can help…

    Thank you

  13. Good afternoon.
    My name is Ashley Thomas but you may know me as Dat Gurl Secrete. I have a track entitled “Yeah, Datway” that has been playing on your 88.1 FM station since mid June. I would like to know who I would need to speak with about setting up a meet and greet and offering a $500 scholarship award to one of your students. I’m also open to giving a free concert if possible as well. Thank you in advance for your time.

  14. I think your station is great. I would like to support you by wearing a WRGP shirt. Do you currently offer them for sale?

    Happy Holidays!
