We are pleased to announce the new license holder for WRFR-LP. As of April 2014, the station license was transferred to The Old School (Rockland’s Free University). This is an exciting change, and one that fits the mission of the station and The Old School of bringing community together for learning, entertainment, and overall improvement of life in the Rockland/Camden area. The old School is in its beginning stages, but has already offered some very popular (and always FREE) courses. If you are interested in finding out more about The Old School, and how you can participate, visit www.oldschoolrockland.org.

The Stone House Cast: from left to right: Wilder “Ryan” Oakes, David “Diggs” Troup, and Jen “Solomon” Blood.
On May 7th Jo and Cheech will air the conclusion of “The Stone House”. The author and cast will be present for a live interview in the studio after the broadcast of the play.
“The Stone House” stars David Troup, member of the Everyman Repertory Theater, as the lead character Diggs, a wise cracking young journalist and mentor to Erin. Erin, played by Jen Blood, is a complex young woman with a mysterious past who drags Diggs into her investigation of the paranormal activity around an old stone house in Southern Maine’s Wolfe’s NeckState Park. Ryan, the creepy yet endearing caretaker of the stone house, is voiced by Maine artist and thespian Wilder Oakes.
The play will be aired on “Jo and Cheech’s Radio Hour”: Tuesday, Tuesday, May 7th from 8-9pm on WRFR-LP (93.3 FM Rockland, 99.3 FM Camden, online streaming at wrfr.org). The segments will be followed by interviews with the actors and author. Part one of the play can be heard here.
