Studio-A-Rama is WRUW’s annual FREE, outdoor, day-long rock concert, and it’s a great opportunity for local and regional bands to showcase their talent and have their music heard. This year’s show will take place on Saturday in early to mid-September, just outside the WRUW studios on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. WRUW is proud to simulcast Studio-A-Rama over its 15,000 watts air signal, as well as on the internet at www.wruw.org.
Since 1982, WRUW has staged this free annual concert designed to thank listeners for their ongoing support throughout the year, and especially during WRUW’s annual telethon. An enthusiastic audience response during the annual on-air fundraiser enables WRUW to continue hosting Studio-A-Rama as well as fund live webcasting and support local music and live music. Studio-A-Rama is one part of WRUW-FM’s commitment to broadcasting local bands live. The “Live From Cleveland” show broadcasts bands from the WRUW-FM studios every Thursday evening from 10 until 11pm, and WRUW also simulcasts numerous live music from events such as the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Summer Solstice and the Hessler Street Fair.
As always, Studio-A-Rama will take place in the Mather Memorial Courtyard outside the WRUW FM studios on the Case Western Reserve University Campus. The Mather Memorial Courtyard is located at the corner of Ford and Bellflower Roads, one block north of the Mayfield/Euclid intersection and one block east of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
