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

BackgroundEdit

Before the Great War, WRVR broadcast to the Greater Boston area. However, the broadcast tower was built 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][2]

Since then, the Charles River Trio, comprised of 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. 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.

LayoutEdit

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.

Related questsEdit

  • Curtain Call: When the Sole Survivor gets close to Trinity Tower, they will receive a distress call on their Pip-Boy radio from Rex Goodman, who is trapped on the top of Trinity Tower. Upon listening to the broadcast, they can aid in his rescue.

NotesEdit

  • 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 one brings MacCready here, he will comment that he misses hearing Three Dog's radio broadcasts.

AppearancesEdit

The WRVR broadcast station appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • 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 start 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, 104.5 The River. KFOW also exist in the real world as a radio station in Waseca, MN as 106.3 FM/1170 AM The Train.
