If you were listening to WRIU last week or last weekend, then you know that we were doing our annual Radiothon. If you turned on the station today, you might think we came up short and shut down operations. Well, we’re still tallying numbers, so it’s too premature to comment on that, but what I can say…It’s just a little building maintenance and we’ll be back real soon. As WRIU General Manager Jeremy Wigton noted in an internal memo (which seems okay to share, right?): “The power in the union will be off in the memorial union [on Saturday] from 6:30am-5pm.” The union, for those who don’t know our parlance, refers to the Memorial Union at the University of Rhode Island, where the station is headquartered.
So stop digging that new basement, hoarding canned food, and saying endless prayers; WRIU will be back to normal within hours – though I can’t speak for the rest of the world.
