To kick off a series of events surrounding its upcoming centennial as the first licensed radio station in Texas (and second in the country), WRR is celebrating a century of service to North Texas listeners with a special exhibit, "First in Texas: WRR Radio's Centennial Celebration."

Curated in partnership with Dallas Municipal Archives and NorthPark Center, the display will highlight the central position of WRR in the Dallas and North Texas community – from its origins in public safety as fire and police dispatch, to its many decades of music programming as an AM station, to its stature today as the premier Classical FM station for a 100-mile radius.

The display will feature a collection of historical images from the past 10 decades, plus rare photos of the many local and international luminaries who have served as advocates for the station.

The exhibition will be on display through September 16 in NorthPark Center's SouthCourt between Louis Vuitton and Burberry.
