Ways to Connect

It’s that time again when we request your wonderful enthusiasm for WCBE’s Fall 2015 Membership Campaign: Thursday, October 15 – Friday, October 23, 2015.

WCBE conducts on-air fundraisers twice a year. Volunteers are needed to answer telephones and take pledges for these events. 

  • Morning, day, evening and weekend hours are available.
  • Training is provided at the start of each shift. Please arrive 1/2 early for training.
  • Refreshments & food are always provided!

Please take a look at the shift schedule below.

 OCTOBER   MODEST MOUSE - FRI. OCT. 16TH @ THE LC

The Membership Director helps listeners understand the importance of becoming donors to keep WCBE on the air.  Reporting directly to the General Manager, the Membership Director shapes, produces, and is responsible for listener-based fundraising – particularly our big Spring and Fall on-air fund drives, including the accompanying direct mail and e-mail campaigns, theme development, premium design and production, staff pitch guidance, and volunteer coordination.  The Membership Director also develops other fundraising efforts; the more creative, the better!

Coming up Wednesday, October 14th,  The Rumba Cafe will host a benefit event for WCBE! Performing musicians include Lydia Loveless, Todd May, Angela Perley, and Jesse Henry & Erica Blinn!

We asked authors, actors, politicians, philanthropists, scientists, musicians and others to tell us their five all-time favorite books to read to their children. We'll be posting a few entries each week (and we'd love to hear from you, too).

Update 8/31/2015 - Please note: There have been several reports of listeners not being able to access the webstream via certain web browsers. However, the web browsers in question are not consistent across PC operating systems.  We are aware of the situation and have reported it to NPR Digital Services.

American Routes

  We'll remember the late singer-songwriter Jesse Winchester, through his music and his own words. Then a visit to Rugby, VA for a close listen into sustainable guitars and ukuleles, made by Jayne and Wayne Henderson, of Henderson Guitars. That's coming up tonight on American Routes, starting at 9pm, on 90.5 FM WCBE.

Japan's latest nuclear catastrophe, the meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant, has brought back memories for the children, grandchildren and great-grand-children of the Hiroshima A-bomb survivors, or “hibakusha.” It has also spurred some into offering help and advice to those who suffered potential radiation from Fukushima, and the uncertainty and discrimination that has come with it. That's coming up tonight at 7pm on The World, on 90.5 FM, WCBE Columbus.

We travel to the island of Ninoshima with reporter Aya Kano. Kano's first trip here was a revelation. She was assigned to cover the exhumation of bodies buried therein haste in the days after August 6, 1945. Previously bored by the Hiroshima's history, Kano became obsessed with it, and with how her own grandmother survived it. That's coming up Wednesday night at 7pm on The World on 90.5 FM WCBE, Columbus.

Sueko Hada was 7 when the A-bomb hit. She was the only survivor in her family. Now, though, she is surrounded by family including four great-grandchildren. Hada isn't bitter about what happened, but there's a sting in the tail of her A-bomb experience: one granddaughter met and married an American serviceman, and they now live in Colorado. Tune in for the next edition of this special series from The World, Tuesday night at 7pm on 90.5 FM WCBE, Columbus.
