Welcome to Summer!
June was a terrific month for Fantasy Faire Radio. Our first live broadcast event of the season, A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Live at LEA 2 was standing room only at the performance site, and had the highest listenership of any other broadcast event in the entire month. Likewise, the three broadcasts of the Fairelands Players presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream were very well received: Fantasy Faire Radio listenership peaked in the 40s and mid 60s on the two days it was broadcast.
As we move through the summer this month, we will be presenting a single event: our opportunity to say “thank you” to everyone who has supported the evolution of Fantasy Faire Radio from annual event station to year-round broadcast proposition: listeners, sponsors, and supporters of all kinds. We are grateful to Belladaine Nightfire and Dark Moon, owners of The Elven Forest, who have graciously agreed to let us visit their realm for this event.
Mark your calendars and join us:

Sunday, July 21st, 2-4 pm slt
