A Reflection on our Spring Fundraiser, from General Manager Dan Mushalko

It's finally complete.  Our big Spring on-air fund drive came to a close at 7pm on Friday, April 11.

Perhaps complete isn't the correct word; we truly do need to raise a full $258,000 before our fiscal year comes to a close.  Thanks to the 1,400 dedicated listeners who donated during our fundraiser, we raised a remarkable $183,915.  That leaves $74,085 yet to earn before the fund drive is truly complete.

I'm very excited to be able to donate to WCBE. It's my source for good, unbiased reporting and news, and it's  my source for new music and genres. That's how I get new music - by searching for new works by the artists I hear.
