Valley Free Radio is an entirely volunteer-run organization. In order to keep the station up and running, there is an expectation that all programmers contribute, under current policy, in one of two ways: Off-air service in an assigned position or (in lieu of that) registering as a pay-to-play program with a monthly charge of $30. *
If you choose to pay the monthly charge, you may signup for a recurring payment through our paypal system. If you choose this option, the fee is dropped to $20
Required
Every programmer, co-host, and engineer, regardless of pay-to-play status, must pay a yearly membership fee of $30. *
A non-refundable training fee of $30 is expected and required when you arrive at your initial training. This will be counted as your membership fee for your first year.
Required
Valley Free Radio is a Scent Free Zone. Please no fragrances (cologne, aftershave, scented deodorant, scented hair and skin products) and inform any guests you may have. Some at VFR have serious reactions to these products. Asthma, sinus disorders, or repeated infections can be triggered by the chemicals used in these products.
We all share the same air space at VFR.
Would you be able to make a commitment to your program for at least six months? *
Our listeners highly value stability in our schedule.
Required
Do you have reliable transportation to our studio?
VFR is located at 140 Pine St in Florence, MA. Florence has limited public transportation, especially on weekends and late evenings. If you would like a show on VFR you will need to be in-studio on a regular basis.

We seek to educate, inspire, and entertain through programming that reflects the diversity of the local community. We seek to provide a space for media access and education, placing equipment, skills, and critical tools in the hands of the community.

I understand that once my training is completed, the programming committee will recommend possible airtime slots. Based on available slots and content balance, the time you may be offered might allow live broadcast or might require you to prerecord your show to be loaded in automation. The Programming Committee is always willing to discuss time possible slots.
