VOWR Radio Celebrates 90 years
Radio Station VOWR has been playing the Music of Your Life since July 24, 1924. This year is our 90th Anniversary and we will be hosting an Open House at the Station on Saturday July 26th. There will be an official cutting of the cake by our oldest volunteer, Ladd Bursey.
We invite everyone to drop by between 10:00am and 5:00pm to help VOWR celebrate 90 years of Volunteer Radio in our community. We are located adjacent to Wesley Church on Patrick Street. Come join us for a coffee, tea, apiece of cake and while you are there have a tour of our facilities. This is a great time to meet some of the wonderful volunteers that continue to keep us on the air 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Welcome to VOWR Radio
Welcome to VOWR Radio, located in St. John's, NL. VOWR is the only radio station owned by The United Church of Canada and has been broadcasting from the same location (Patrick Street and Hamilton Avenue) since 1924. Our station began as an outreach ministry of Wesley United Church and was the 'child' of Rev. Dr. J.G. Joyce. Operated solely by volunteers, our station broadcasts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - we are never off the air! VOWR can be heard on the AM dial at 800 (on the Avalon Peninsula), on-line by clicking the radio beneath the index table, and now on Rogers Digital Television on Channel 945 and on Bell Aliant Digital Cable on Channel 878.
VOWR is pleased to offer radio service 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is made possible by the devoted work of our many volunteers
A major part of VOWR's Radio ministry finds life in the broadcasting of Sunday worship services from churches, of all denominations, in the area. The majority of our worship services are broadcast from Wesley United Church, with whom we are directly affiliated, but we also invite all city and area churches to have their services broadcast, either live or taped.
