At WPVM, radio is an art form; it’s a part of our society; it colors how we act and treat each other; it’s much bigger than a tool for propaganda or to make a dollar. WPVM is different radio; we believe it is a way to intimately connect our communities; locally, nationally, and globally. More than a century old, radio is an ever-evolving medium that continues to define itself. Check out our “Best of WPVM” show featuring Brody Hunt and his band of Pals from around the world at the afterparty following the 2023 Asheville Shellac bash,
