When you think of the month of February, do thoughts of the Super Bowl, Groundhog Day, the Winter Olympics or Valentine's Day come to mind? Here at WRVO, it's all about Foneless February.

It's been a hit so far, so we're keeping it 'foneless' this February. This month, WRVO Public Media is making a silent request for contributions. No interruptions and no ringing phones. We call it 'Foneless February.' Our spring fundraiser is just around the corner and you can help make it shorter by donating now.
