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.

WESU Middletown is hosting a fundraising dinner on December 7th at La Boca in Middletown, CT! I hope to see you there, so don’t forget to get tickets while you can.
Wonderland has been on WESU Middletown since December of 2007 and has had the same website design for the duration! Â The purpose of the website has been to archive setlists and broadcasts; with that in mind, it’s been redeployed in WordPress to make life a little easier.
New setlists will be shared as posts, but the older setlists will be accessible through the “Older Setlists” menu link.
