WBJC's monthly newsletter to keep you informed about programming highlights, upcoming local events and general station news. 
We know you don’t like on-air fund drives!
Wanna know a secret? Neither do we!!

Our winter on-air drive begins today. The good news: You've already shortened the drive by a day!

That's one more day of the music you love.

We need to keep this momentum going. Every dollar made during this pledge drive puts us closer to our overall fiscal year budget goal. The closer we are now, the fewer days of pitching we will need to do in the Spring.

WBJC does one thing, and we hope we're doing it well... Playing the very best of classical music, selected by on-air hosts who love this music just as much as you do.

If you haven't already pledged in the "Buy back" campaign and would like to contribute to the Winter pledge drive, you can click here to donate online now. And don't forget, we have great WBJC merch!
Have you ever considered becoming a WBJC volunteer?
It's super easy! Plus we have great food, conversation and have been known to break out into impromptu knitting/crochet/spinning sessions on occasion!

To get on the notification list for upcoming volunteer opportunities, you can email us at membership@wbjc.com or click the "updates preferences" link at the bottom of this email. Follow the log-in instructions and add "Volunteer list" to your profile!
