Coming up this Saturday morning at 10am on WCBE, Car Talk will air a tribute show this weekend in which Ray will share news of Tom's passing with listeners and remember some of his brother's most spectacular moments on air.
Listeners responded generously during WCBE's Fall fund drive, helping us raise over $195,000! We're $44,919 short of our goal, but there's a way you can help 90.5 FM, an help households have food in their kitchens.
For every donation WCBE is given from now through the end of November, WCBE will give five cans of non-perishable groceries to food pantries in the 90.5 FM listening area.
From all of us at WCBE: THANK YOU! You donated over $195,000 during our Fall on-air fundraiser. That will go a long way in helping us keep your favorite programs on the air through the spring. And for those of you who didn't have the chance to give, it's not too late to donate!
The drive fell about $69,000 short...so you can still make a difference. Just send a check to:
The WCBE Fund 540 Jack Gibbs Boulevard Columbus, OH 43215
This contest is now closed. Stay tuned to hear the winner of the bike!
We are excited to announce our sweepstakes for a new iGo Titan Model Electric Bicycle, courtesy of Orbit City Bikes!

This model is yellow, and you can learn more details about the bicycle specifications here.
WCBE is currently broadcasting with our old analog transmitter while we await repairs on the new digital unit. You may hear a bit of static on the signal.
You can still listen to our broadcast via iTunes Radio, on our website at wcbe.org, and on the NPR News App. Android users can listen via the TuneIn radio app as well. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will update soon. Thanks!
The WCBE Fall Fund drive is coming soon, and we've got big news: for every $25,000 received on or before October 15th, we will eliminate a day of on-air fundraising at the beginning of the drive! So yourdonation is key!
Thanks to listener support, WCBE has been able to provide you with the finest news, information, entertainment, and music available on radio today. Each week, nearly 80,000 prove that when they tune in to 90.5 FM.

Not every high schooler wants to go to college - and nearly half of our jobs don't require a bachelor's degree. So, many education experts say it's time to bring vocation education back in full force instead of following a "college is for everyone" philosophy in our schools. We'll explore how vocational programs have changed, and are reshaping debates about the purpose of public schools.
Coming up Saturday, September 20th at 3pm on 90.5FM WCBE.
