Last month I told you about Roots Town Radio, the looming new low-power radio station that’s hoping to serve Charleston’s airwaves with plenty of local music. The good news is that thanks to a hefty donation from The Greater Kanawha Foundation, WXDB is more than halfway to their fundraising goal to start pumping out local goodness on the FM dial at 95.7.
However, it’s a busy week for fundraising for WXDB. Tonight at The Cellar (8 Capitol St.) at 8 PM, you can enjoy music by recent Radio Free Charleston guest, Mark Cline Bates as well as singer/songwriter Andrea Davidson. Five bucks gets you in the door, and it all goes toward helping Roots Town Radio become a reality.
Wednesday night, The Empty Glass plays host to a Roots Town Radio night, with Kristen Costello, Jake Book, Sierra Elizabeth Ferrell and Andy Park and the True Lovers. The five dollar cover goes to the band, but this is to raise visibility for the RTR project.
