In November, just prior to the start of the National Grange Session, the Grange Radio returned with new voices and music. A greater diversity of music and programming is expected after the new year

It can be found online at www.grangeradio.org, where Grangers have a place they can go to listen to family and farmer friendly music while staying up to date on the latest Grange news and events. The station also has an active Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GrangeRadio. You can add your voice to Grange Radio by recording a short “bumper” or becoming a contributor. To learn more, go to the website.
