Welcome to 2013. Besides being the year of the snake and the UN's International Year of Water Cooperation (who knew!), it bears mentioning that WRTI turns 60! On July 9, 1953, WRTI became a licensed FM radio station operating at 10 watts from Temple University's main campus in Philadelphia. Thanks to you, over the years we've grown into the largest classical music and jazz media outlet in the tri-state area.
Congratulations to Dori Spector! She's the winner of WRTI's 60th Anniversary Commemorative Artwork Competition. Dori lives in Newtown Square, PA and is a sustaining member of WRTI. She submitted an etching that, our judges felt, was a beautiful expression of WRTI's diverse cultural community and its ongoing connection to Philadelphia's tri-state region.
“All of the submissions received were truly outstanding,” says WRTI General Manager Dave Conant. "We're thankful to everyone who participated in the competition."
