Listen on Demand

The most recent Virginia Voice broadcasts are archived and made available to our online listeners so that they can listen to a previously broadcast program they may have missed or wish to hear again. Qualified listeners who have internet access and have an internet-enabled device are encouraged to register with Virginia Voice in order to take advantage of this valuable service.

All of the programming that is broadcast by Virginia Voice can be heard by accessing our Live Stream. It can also be listened to on demand. None of the material we broadcast is copy-protected. We group our broadcast programs into the following four sets:

Richmond Times-Dispatch – Weekday

Monday through Friday two of our readers come to the studio at 8:00 am and read the Richmond Times-Dispatch live for two hours. At 10:00 we rebroadcast the live read. Once the live read is complete, the Studio Manager edits the material and places the contents in the appropriate categories, e.g., Obituaries, Editorials, etc. This task is normally completed by late morning, and that day’s reading is made available until the following day, when the process is repeated. Only the most recent day is kept.

Richmond Times-Dispatch – Weekend

Every Saturday morning, two readers come to the studio at 9:00 and read the Richmond Times-Dispatch for two hours. The Saturday live read is rebroadcast at 5:00 pm. Once the live read is complete, the Studio Manager edits the material and places the contents in the appropriate categories, e.g., Obituaries, Editorials, etc. This task is normally completed by noon, and that day’s reading is available until the following Saturday, when the process is repeated. Only the most recent Saturday is kept.

Every Sunday afternoon, two readers come to the studio at 2:00 and read the Richmond Times-Dispatch for two hours. Once the Sunday live read is complete, the Studio Manager edits the material and places the contents in the appropriate categories, e.g., Obituaries, Editorials, etc. This task is normally completed by late afternoon, and that day’s reading is available until the following Sunday, when the process is repeated. Only the most recent Sunday is kept.

Programs Alphabetically

Every week, many volunteer readers record a program to be broadcast on a regularly scheduled day. Most of the readers have their “own” program and record it every week. On the day that the program is broadcast, sometimes before, and sometimes after the broadcast, the Studio Manager archives the program, replacing the previous broadcast. Only the most recent recording is available.
