The River 101.9 FM


Your Classic Rock Station

Highlands Media Group welcomes you to the all new 101.9 The River - W.J.V.R., “Your Classic Rock Station”.

Classic rock is a radio format which developed from the album-oriented rock (AOR) format in the early 1980s. In the United States, the classic rock format features music ranging generally from the mid-1960s to the late 1980s, primarily focusing on commercially successful hard rock popularized in the 1970s.

Although classic rock has mostly appealed to adult listeners, music associated with this format received more exposure with younger generations of listeners with the presence of the internet and digital downloading. Some classic rock stations also play a limited number of current releases which are stylistically consistent with the station's sound, or by heritage acts that are still active and producing new music.

As your newest choice for music in the Alleghany Highlands, we are proud to be able to offer you some of your favorite “Rockers” like Ted Nugent, Skid Row, .38 Special, Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Seger, Marshall Tucker Band, Queen, Eagles and numerous others.

No more static from those far away Classic Rock stations or the same old songs being played over and over again. You now have your very own Classic Rock Station - 101.9 The River - W.J.V.R.

101.9 The River is also the home of Alleghany High School Sports.
