The WRVR broadcast station is a location in the Commonwealth.

Background

Before the Great War, WRVR broadcast to the Greater Boston area. However, the broadcast tower was build in close proximity to the military's relay tower 1DL-109, meaning the station broadcasts would experience interference if the military found it necessary to broadcast.[1]

Of course, with the war having been over for two centuries and radio interference a nonissue, the radio broadcast station has become home to the Charles River Trio (Anne Hargraves, George Cooper, and Rex Goodman), famous for their radio plays. Recently, one-third of the trio (Goodman) was taken hostage by super mutant at Trinity Tower, and his comrades have been concerned that he won't return to them in one piece, if at all.[2]

Layout

The entrance has little of note besides a desk and a few couches. Through the nearby door is the bathroom, a ladder to the roof, and a mixing booth. Through another door is the recording studio.

Inhabitants

Notable loot

  • The Trim the Fat edition of Live & Love is on a table in the room between the recording studio and the entrance.
  • Notice to WRVR on the end of a desk in the equipment room.

Appearances

WRVR broadcast station appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

  • The general shape of the building as seen from the outside and the layout of the lobby bear a striking resemblance to the broadcast facility in the film UHF.
  • A real-life radio station exists with the call sign WRVR, however it is licensed to Memphis, Tennessee. Between 1961 and 1980 the calls were used in a station in New York City.

    This local radio is home to the Charles River Trio and famous for their radio plays, though the third member of the group has gotten himself into a bit of a pickle. Listen to his panicked message and save him to help these folks out. Need a baseball bat? There’s one on the roof."
