Valley Free Radio is a community-run radio station free of corporate influence and power. Every day citizens with an extraordinary love of music, politics, the environment, and life run this radio station in one of the greatest cities in New England.

A note from the host of SUBCULTURE: Hello and how are you? My name is Wendy. You have no idea how happy I am to be working in community radio. For years I worked in  commercial radio where ratings and money were god. I remember my first commercial gig. After two years working at a “Contemporary Hit” station, I had finally convinced my Program Director to let me host a 80’s new wave night on Sunday evenings. One week in, our radio station was bought out and changed into a country music station.  WHAT THA??? In the commercial biz, if your radio format changes, you more than likely lose your job and are replaced by humans more equipped to suck up to the new format. Luckily, we were given a choice. Still, I effing hate country music. I have no use for it. I stuck around and did a jig or two but quickly  got a job elsewhere. Several stations and many years later, I’ve solidly given my middle finger to corporate radio. If you want tried and true music, free from (yes, commercials, but also) money-grubbing radio rating whores, tune into WXOJ and Subculture. We operate on our own terms.  Believe it.

p.s. I am a Duran Duran and Ivy fanatic. More times than none you will find these two bands on my show and you know why? Valley Free Radio! Hearts.
