Your generosity made our quiet campaign a success!
Thank you!!
Because of you, our mail, email, and short, low-key on-air quiet campaign brought in nearly $300,000. This money will get WBJC through these trying times and enable us to continue bringing you the great classical music that you expect. Music programmed by your favorite hosts, 24 hours per day, seven days per week, with no commercial interruptions.

We also heard from you. Hundreds of donors included comments when they gave on-line. These heart-felt messages showed us how important we are to you. We read the words helping me persevere , lifeline , oasis , comfort , profound impact , calming many times. You affirmed to all of us here at WBJC that what we do, whether on-air or behind the scenes, matters.

WBJC is dedicated to you and the music we bring you every day. Thank you for letting us be a part of your life.

All of us at WBJC-FM

P.S. There’s still time. Our fiscal year does not end until June 30, and you may still go on-line and make a gift. Go to WBJC.com and click on the DONATE button to charge your gift. Thank you.

Join Judith Krummeck for an interview series on WBJC devoted to the world of books — from different genres, to book awards, to local and national authors — everything to do with books. Booknotes is made possible by YOU, our members.

This month:

In 1632, Galileo Galilei was tried by the Inquisition and found to be “vehemently suspect of heresy” for maintaining that the earth revolved around the sun. Now, Dr. Mario Livio, astrophysicist and best selling author of seven books, has just published Galileo: And the Science Deniers.

Our redoubtable Diana Ross, whose myriad responsibilities at WBJC include Web Administrator, sent us an email to say, “If you know of a local arts org that has transitioned to some kind of online capacity or is holding some kind of event that needs some love, PLEASE feel free to plug them on the WBJC Blog and I will link it in the newsletter.”
It got me thinking about some of the organizations that are giving back as we all try to find our balance during these extraordinary times. Please read my post here:

All In-Person Pratt Library Events Cancelled—Virtual Events Now Available!
