Buy Local

Buy Local

Local. Community. Support. The mission statement of 101.5 the music place, the only true, community radio station in the Roanoke Valley, embodies its dedication to the enhancement of cultural arts and community advocacy. 101.5 the music place believes its audience should understand the far-reaching impact of a community’s economic health, and should fortify our community, in buying its goods and services, so that the quality of life of each citizen can be enhanced. 101.5 the music place will dedicate sixteen weeks to the celebration of our local businesses and organizations. Join 101.5 the music place, as together, we’ll make a difference for you, and for our community!  

Each participating, Local Sponsor of this campaign will support weekly vignettes, designed to heighten awareness of what it means to "Buy Local."  More than a mantra, it's the essence of building a strong community.  With guests and experts, we'll show you why, during our three per week Buy Local discussions!

Additionally, each participating sponsor of the Buy Local campaign will have a "Local, Live Spotlight," to be broadcast on 101.5 the music place.  Please listen and support each of these fantastic businesses and organizations.

As a strong demonstration of community stewardship, each participating sponsor is promoting one of their favorite non-profit organizations, with Public Service Announcements, brought to us all--by our participating sponsors!  We applaud the sponsors in this gesture!

Buy Local: Support Our Community, by supporting our locally owned, participating businesses, who make a difference in our community! Please tell them you appreciate their efforts, and do understand that their businesses and services benefit YOU.
