This is a big day for WFIR — and for Roanoke radio history. It was 100 years ago today that we started broadcasting, just the second station in Virginia to do so. It has been quite the century-long journey for us and our listeners, and we asked WFIR’s Evan Jones to take us from the beginning to the present.
