Hello again!

With just a few frigid days remaining in 2017, WESU is looking forward to warming things up in 2018. So far, we’ve raised 2/3rd of our pledge drive goal directly though community support. Our brand new FM transmitter was delivered yesterday and Wesleyan’s Office of Academic Affairs has generously offered a matching donation of $5,000 to help us close out this drive!

With your help, this energizing gift brings the end of our current pledge drive well into focus.  All donations received by January 1 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $5,000, enabling WESU to raise $10,000!!

Your donation, today, will help us take full advantage of this matching gift and enable WESU to make a sizable down payment on our new state-of-the-art solid-state digital FM transmitter and help cover our operating costs for the season.

My sincere gratitude to those of you who have helped to get us this far. Thanks in advance to those of you who will help close out this drive and begin 2018 on strong footing!

Keep Free Form Radio Free: Support WESU Middletown

WESU Middletown is in its Fall/Winter Pledge Drive, and I’m asking all my friends to show their support for our local, community radio station. The media landscape across all broadcast mediums is nightmarish. Disney is acquiring its major rival, thus consolidating a massive amount of popular television and film in the hands of one corporation. The FCC has destroyed net neutrality, granting a small number of companies the ability to limit public access to content on the internet with no consequences. Roll backs of regulations have allowed an elite number of corporations to acquire more and more radio and television stations as well as publications in one market, flattening all viewpoints into one commercially sound product.

Public radio is one of the last bastions of citizen access to a broadcast medium. At WESU Middletown, students and community members come together to share rare music, dissenting opinions, and neglected news stories. BUT…WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. Please donate now, and keep free form radio free

You can donate online at http://wesufm.org/pledge.
