WFMU: A Terrifying Fundraising Challenge!
WFMU, the world’s greatest freeform radio station, needs our help! For decades the station has been home to Nachum Segal and the JM in the AM show, but now that show, and its financial supporters, are leaving WFMU in December. This leaves a huge whole in the station’s funding, so they are this month hosting a ‘silent’ fundraiser in order to raise money to fill the hole that JM in the AM’s leaving puts them in.
WFMU is 100% independent: No university funding, no underwriting, no sponsors, and definitely never ever any advertising. They rely entirely on listeners for their considerable budget. The station isn’t in it for the money; it’s a true labor of love by everybody that volunteers there. The money they raise is strictly for paying the bills and keeping the lights on. WFMU is about doing something that nobody else (hardly) is doing anymore: pure, anything-goes, no playlists, no algorithms freeform radio. Just cool music curated by people as weird as you and me. Maybe even weirder.
WFMU is way behind on their silent fundraiser goal for the month.Click below to send a few bucks their way. Thanks!
