On October 31st, 1981, CHRW played its first song on the air (On The Air by Peter Gabriel, if you’re curious).
We’re delighted and proud to have been the alternative voice of Londen for the past 3½ decades, and we’re equally delighted and proud of all the people who have hosted or produced or contributed to our broadcast over the years, whether they have gone on to a successful career in media, or just have cool stories to tell their kids. We run very few paid ads at CHRW...the vast majority of the messages you hear are in support of local music and arts. Donations are an essential source of funding for CHRW, and will continue to be for as long as we’re… on the air.
