Thanks to Spyro for his monthly donation! I’ve been an LIR/DRE fan since I moved to NYC in 1987. I’m listening in Manhattan.

I am now living in Riverton, Wyoming, and am so amazed that I can listen once again to 'LIR, and all the so very happy memories are coming back to me. The classic music along with all the new stuff is so great and you have made me so very, very happy, and I truly thank you all for that!!!!! ! I purchased a t-shirt, a baseball cap and a beanie hat so that I can let everyone know about 'LIR, and I'm telling EVERYONE to tune in! - Gina Rapone

Discovered you today thanks to a friend that I used to dj 80s music with. I stopped actively listening to alternative in 1992. I'm so happy that you play 90s-present that keeps that 80s aesthetic alive. Even happier that you're on my AppleTV. Keep us dancing! - Ian Malbon

Thanks to Monte in San Carlos, CA for his donation! - I very much enjoyed listening to you guys growing up in the 80s and happy to have you streaming.

Thanks to Vincent Paul Bartilucci - I was 3 months shy of my 16th birthday when the format changed in August 1982. WLIR and the music it played had a tremendous impact on me. It taught me that different isn't just okay, it's cool. I just signed up for a recurring donation. I wish it could be more.

Thanks to Cathleen Combs for her donation! - Happy to support WLIR - one of my favorite things in life! I'm Cathy from Oceanside and so glad you guys are back!

Christopher Bianco - Thrilled to death LIR is back!! Missed you guys, been listening since 1983.

Thanks to Joe & Suzie for their recurring donation! - Me and my sweetheart grew up listening to WLIR and now listen online 24/7

Claudine Vivian - Saw the documentary...And listened at lunch. So glad you are here! This music was my teen + years! Thank you! Anxious to see what you bring today!

Gregory Healy - I've missed you guys for years and thrilled you've put this together.

I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have WLIR back. That station saved my sanity when I was a punk kid growing up in an uber-preppy suburb where I never fit in. Your music — old and new — still rocks. And my inner teenager is beyond stoked! Thanks again, Jenn

Thanks to Steve Molaro from Los Angeles for his donation!

Janine Howe - “Best station ever. Great to hear the Duck. This music makes me happy - always!”

Thanks to Charles Prestigiacomo for his donation!

I was stunned to find you back on the air this morning! Thank God. Radio has sucked without you. I still play old tapes of your shows from the 80s - 90s. I hope you can stay on the air forever. Will donate in a few weeks...Love this music!- Buz

Thanks to William Welch for his donation!

Thanks to James McKenna for his donation! Thanks for doing what you do. It's great music. - James

Louise - Hi! We're listening from Mexico! Love your station, it's just a happy place!

Thanks to Cornelius O’Donnell for his donation!

Thanks to Alan Abrams for his donation! - Grew up on Long Island & LIR. Live near Boston now and listening on the iPhone app. Showtime documentary was great. Truly happy LIR is back.

Thanks to John Capobianco for his donation! - I am glad to help. I live in New York City currently and listen to you on TuneIn radio on my Alexa.

Howard Davidson - I've been a fan of WLIR since I was young. I went to Buffalo State college when WBNY FM was born, and loved that it took it's vibe from LIR.

Thanks to David in Scotland for his donation!

We’re having flashbacks here today. Loving the music. - Michael & Tanya in Milford, PA (ex-Long Islanders from many moons ago – and still happily married!!)

John Sielaff - I'm livin' out in San Diego, CA USA just gettin things done on the computer while listenin to WLIR and would love to hear something from Joy Division

Looking forward to hearing you guys on the air in my car once again. Best of luck in that endeavor and please let us fans know if we can help [donations, writing to your old nemesis the FCC, etc..Cheers, Bill T

Thanks to Bruce Dalis for his contribution!

Had NO idea you were back! Saw the doc on Showtime this weekend and was just googling at work, and this website came up - I'm one of those kids that first heard I Will Follow on your air and... lol, whoever's reading this was probably not even born yet. So I'll finish now. Thanks for being back! – Carol

Thanks to Beatriz Salinas for her donation - "Keep up the good work! :-) Viva WLIR Radio!"
