Raven's 30th Anniversary

Party on!

A "Senior" moment: Some of Raven Radio's original founders and all four General Managers launch the 30th Anniversary celebration Friday morning (6-29-12). L to R: Former GM Barnaby Dow, current GM Ken Fate, founder and former program director Marika Partridge, founder and board member Steff Steffen, former GM Lily Herwald, founder and former GM Rich McClear.

Raven Radio celebrates thirty years on the air this weekend, with festivities running from Saturday through the Independence Day holiday (Jun 29 – Jul 4). Dancing, food, music, and community will be major themes of the event — just as they were a major part of the station’s founding. According to the people pictured above, though, the party never stopped!
