On January 11, 2019, WNRN will celebrate its 22nd anniversary of bringing independent music radio to the Commonwealth of Virginia when The Paramount Theater hosts “Dead Air “, a concert spotlighting 22 bands from the Commonwealth and their unique version of a Grateful Dead tune. Beginning at 7pm, the first band will take the stage followed in ten minute intervals by more bands performing the music of the Grateful Dead.
In addition to the 22 bands, Dead Air will also feature 22 different Virginia non-profit organizations, each with a display and sign-up station to encourage volunteerism and participation in our community. The 22 non-profits will also be the financial beneficiaries of a 22 item raffle of signed music memorabilia held that night.
Hosted on stage by WNRN on-air hosts like Marc and Ed of the Saturday morning Grateful Dead and Phriends Show, the breaks between the bands will also spotlight the non-profits involved and some other special guests and surprises.
