2019 was one hell of a year for WRFL. Watch the WRFL 2019 recap video by our Media Director Maurice Fleming here.
Here's some of the things WRFL did in 2019:
We had more than 30 artists and bands perform in-studio on WRFL Live.
We partnered with the Lexington Film League to present a screening of Missippi Records.
We featured the band Whalerus, and hip hop artists Devine Carama and Mike Bandanna in our Know Your Own concert series.
We turned 31 and celebrated with a Birthday Bash featuring the bands Cobra Man, Spud Cannon, Tiny Tiny and Quality Cable.

We put on Entropic Fest, a music festival featuring punk, metal and hip hop acts from across the region.
We partnered with Institute 193 to present the 193 Sound concert series, featuring Matmos, LEYA and Jon Mueller.
We hosted Tammi Savoy and the Chris Casello Combo.
We partnered with Dead Audio to present Expansion 2019- a psych rock music festival.
We partnered with local bands and our neighbors on South Limestone to put on the first ever Slimestone event- introducing freshmen to local businesses and music.
We put on To The Front Fest- a music and art fundraiser focused on creating a platform for the inclusion and visibility of marginalized identities within the arts community. The event benefited Arbor Youth Services.
Along with WRFL's All Things Heavy we put on Wretched Fest- a festival to celebrate heavy metal music.
Members of our board of directors represented WRFL at UK's Student Organizations and Activities Retreat and at the 2019 College Broadcasters Inc. conference in St. Louis.
We had a live in-studio DJ, 24 hours a day for 365 days, with no commercial interruptions.
We're looking forward to what's to come in 2020!
