Finally, a reason to turn on your radio again!WXRY is nonprofit, listener-supported radio, live from South Carolina’s Main Street. Operated by the Independent Media Foundation, a 501(c)(3), our mission is to help you discover new music while building an active, vibrant community. Broadcasting from high atop the historic Barringer Building since 2005, we’ve been able to add two more onair frequencies as well as online and mobile streaming, thanks to the ongoing generosity of of the people and organizations of the Midlands. Visit our How to Listen page for all the ways you can listen to the Soundtrack of Soda City.
We started WXRY because we felt it was important for Columbia to have a new type of voice on the radio dial, one that wasn’t beholden to corporate interests, but a voice which instead could truly serve our nonprofit community. Corporate radio comes and goes, but WXRY was built to last – and last we have, coming up on seventeen years in March 2022. If your old favorite radio station has changed, give us a shot. You’ll find the music you love, with local, fun, and even free things to do and see in our city, and hey! We promise not to abandon you! We’re in the business of making people happy, which means you are the reason we do what we do. Thank you for listening!
