In addition to being the best radio station in the Triangle, WKNC has long been a supporter of Redress and a great advocate for creating a supportive local creative community. Don't miss their upcoming Radio Ride on Saturday August 29th - more info below!
WKNC’s Radio Ride is modeled after similar alleycats hosted in the Triangle, including the HepCat and WESAcat, and expects to draw between 50 and 100 participants. Riders will receive a set of clues pointing them to various checkpoints around the NC State campus and downtown Raleigh and should expect to bike between 15 and 20 miles. Prizes for the top finishers include donated items from Fyxation, Raleigh Denim and Negative Fun Records.
Check-in for WKNC’s Radio Ride starts at 12 p.m. at the Raleigh Arts Collective and the ride begins at 1 p.m. Registration is $10 in advance and $15 the day of the event. Those unable to participate can sign up as "virtual riders" for a $10 donation. Pre-registration is available online at wknc.org/swag.
Proceeds from WKNC’s Radio Ride will benefit the student-run non-commercial radio station. About 13 percent of the station’s budget comes from North Carolina State University student fees, with the rest raised through a combination of underwriting, event promotions, sports broadcasts, merchandise sales and fundraisers like the Radio Ride and Double Barrel Benefit concert.
