WRR Radio Centennial Celebration Exhibition

Irving Arts Center

As part of the centennial celebration as the first licensed radio station in Texas (and second in the country), WRR is celebrating a century of service to North Texas listeners with a special exhibition, Texas’ First Radio Station: WRR Radio Centennial Celebration.  Curated in partnership with Dallas Municipal Archives, this compelling display highlights the central position of WRR in the Dallas and North Texas community – from its origins in public safety as fire and police dispatch, to its many decades of music programming as an AM station, to its stature today as the premier Classical FM station for a 100-mile radius. The exhibition features a collection of historical images from the past ten decades, plus rare photos of the many local and international luminaries who have served as advocates for the station.
