Lewis University WLRA Radio “Christmas Memories” Plays Until January 1

Published: November 6, 2017.

Tune into WLRA-FM for holiday music 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from Thanksgiving Day through January 1. Listeners can tune in via radio at 88.1 FM, online at www.lewisu.edu/wlra, the apps iTunes and Google Play and iHeartRadio.

The WLRA Christmas programming will feature sacred, traditional, contemporary and new hits for people of all tastes and ages, including artists such as Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, Hanson, 98 Degrees, Leann Rimes, Kenny Rogers and many more. The Christmas programming, as well as the University's Andrew Center of Electronic Media, are made possible through a grant from the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation.

This is the 18th year that WLRA-FM switched to all Christmas music as part of the annual “Christmas Memories for You and Your Family,” a benefit broadcast for the United Way of Will County. Instead of commercials, WLRA will air brief public service announcements about United Way agencies in Will County.

“It’s our Christmas gift to the community. Our students are honored to use their skills in the radio industry to help others in the various United Way programs,” John Carey, director of the Andrew Center of Electronic Media, commented.

WLRA also treats listeners to the “WLRA Christmas in July,” a benefit broadcast for the United Way of Will County during the first week in July. Instead of commercials, WLRA will air brief messages every 15 minutes about United Way agencies in Will County at no cost to the United Way or the agencies.

WLRA has been on the air for more than 40 years. WLRA’s programming includes news and sports coverage, coverage of Lewis University events and a wide variety of music. Students and faculty involved with WLRA are committed to community service and have produced several marathon broadcasts to benefit United Way of Will County, local children’s hospital and many others.

The United Way of Will County is a local, not-for-profit organization that raises money annually to support local human care services provided by local, not-for-profit agencies. With financial contributions from the community, United Way is helping and changing lives every day.
