WRFG 89.3 FM is an independent community radio station with a mission:

WRFG Atlanta 89.3 FM Radio Free Georgia Broadcasting Organization, Inc. provides a voice for those who have been traditionally denied open access to the broadcast media through the involvement of a broad base of community elements to guarantee that access.

In the utilization of the station’s facilities and in its programs the following communities will receive first priority:

1. Those who continue to be denied free and open access to the broadcast media,

2. Those who suffer oppression or exploitation based upon class, race, sex, age, creed, sexual orientation, disability, or immigrant status.

WRFG is staffed by a wonderful crew of volunteer broadcasters - and a small paid support staff - who are dedicated to carrying out our mission and to bringing you our locally produced progressive information programs and diverse handpicked quality music shows just as we've done for the last 48 years. You can check out our complete program schedule and read more about WRFG's  history  at WRFG.ORG.

The pandemic has hit us hard.

Instead of doing our shows live from the WRFG studio, we're producing our shows at home. As a result, many of us have had to set up home studios and learn all kinds of new technology just to bring our shows to you. It's quite an undertaking and the only reason it works is that we love WRFG. And, yes, we're all looking forward to that wonderful day when we can return to live programming.

And that's not all.

Even though we're not broadcasting live from our studio in the Little 5 Points Center for Arts and Community, we still have to pay the rent and the salaries of our two full-time employees and a half-dozen part-timers, plus all those little day-to-day bills that keep any business or non-profit afloat.

WRFG isn't owned by a university, a public school district, or a big non-profit corporation and we don't get any big government grants. More than 80-percent of our funding comes directly from people like you who love our diverse music shows and appreciated the local progressive voices you'll hear nowhere else on the Atlanta airwaves.

Can we count on your support?

Your contribution to WRFG on Giving Tuesday helps keeps the music playing and the progressive information flowing just like it has since 1973.

We appreciate you're support. Thank you!
