The WRVR broadcast station is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.

Background

George Cooper, Anne Hargraves, and Rex Goodman (if Curtain Call has been completed), may be found here. They perform plays on the radio, with Anne taking on all the female roles. She may be asked to join a settlement however, and leaves readily, without any protests or remarks from her colleagues.

Layout

The station is a small, bunker-like building with a radio tower on the roof. It is situated next to a river and a bridge that spans the river.

The interior consists of a reception area and a slightly larger room that leads to a bathroom and an acoustically-treated studio. In the larger room is a ladder leading to the roof. It has a table containing an aluminum tray, upon which is a baseball bat and several baseballs, all of which may be freely taken.

If Curtain Call has not yet been discovered, it is possible to start it here by talking to Anne Hargraves and George Cooper. If already started, there is extra dialogue about how Rex has gotten into a mess.

Notes

  • A leveled radscorpion may burst from the ground directly in front of the entrance.
  • Unlike those at radio tower 3SM-U81, the satellite dishes here are not extendable.
  • When inside the building, several companions will make comments about the inhabitants, calling them the "Charles River Trio" and expressing disdain for their apparently infamous broadcasts. Despite this, no radio station featuring the Trio exists in-game.
  • If you bring MacCready here he will comment that he misses hearing Three Dog's Radio.

Appearances

The WRVR broadcast station only appears in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

  • In the documentary The History of Bethesda Game Studios, an early map for Fallout 4 is shown. A location called "KFOW Broadcasting" can be seen where WRVR broadcast station is in-game, indicating this was an earlier name of the station during development. However, the KFOW name would have been inaccurate, as Boston is east of the Mississippi River, where all call signs starts with the letter W, as in WRVR.
  • In the real world the call letters WRVR belong to a radio station operating out of Memphis, Tennessee, 104.6 The River.
