WESU Middletown Needs Your Support

I’m proud to have been hosting Wonderland on WESU Middletown, 88.1 FM since 2007. My 13 years in community radio pales in comparison to WESU’s 80+ years serving the Greater Middletown Community.

If you listen to my show, you know that WESU is one one of the nation’s oldest, non-commercial, community radio stations.

We aren’t the first. But many of the bastions of independant, non-commercial broadcasts that began in the 20th century with WESU have gone silent.

Could you imagine the loss to the community if WESU was to join them in perpetual silence?

We need your support during the station’s Fall/Winter Pledge Drive. We have over $20,000 to raise before the year ends, and we need our listeners’ and supporters’ donations to make this happen.

WESU Middletown, 88.1 FM is here for you 24/7, providing a soundtrack for your life and public affairs shows for your mind. Please be here for us during our time of need.
