We started this morning, at 6:00, the WCBE Fall On-Air Fund Drive.
WHY?  Because WCBE is Listener-Supported.
Because 90.5 FM broadcasts as a Public, Non-Commercial station as licensed by the FCC. Because the content WCBE broadcasts, fresh-daily, programs our listeners love…
Morning Edition, Fresh Air, All Things Considered, and more… these are programs each NPR-member station (and WCBE is a Charter-Member of NPR) pays an annual licensing fee to broadcast to our audience.
GOAL. Our goal during this 2011 Fall Fund Drive, Oct.13-19, is $190,000.
Most of these dollars purchase network programs, with the remainder applied to the WCBE staff who produce original content, Columbus-news, Columbus-music, and music our listeners value that is unique to 90.5 FM.
Help us continue our Mission:   To serve as a catalyst for our Community…to enrich lives by providing the best original, independent and network programming, and by partnering with listeners and local organizations to grow and sustain our cultural and educational landscape.

Listeners like you volunteer…dozens of them… they will journey to the 90.5 FM studios during the next 7 days to answers calls phoned in from other listeners like you, donors who renew their membership to WCBE or become members for their first time to support their favorite station.
Business-Owners, perhaps like you, restauranteurs, owners/managers of 21 different venues will donate breakfasts, lunches and dinners to our volunteers and staff during our Fall Fund Drive.  They make this gift to us because they BELIEVE in the WCBE Mission.

Here’s how. Phone (614) 365-5064 and talk to your fellow-listener, and make your gift to keep the programs you love continue on WCBE.


About orangeacorn

We are, I believe, and everything is, in perpetual unfolding/enfolding/evolving. By surface appearances, we're in turmoil and fearfullness, but in fact our existence is on the edge of a new way, beyond the US versus THEM we have grown with. I encourage you to join me over coffee or tea in face-to-face encounters. I call this exercise, "CAFFEINE COMMUNION: Encounters with Paradigm Pioneers." I'm a Columbus, Ohio husband, father and citizen. I practice string band sounds from the ridges of Pocahontas County, West Virginia, the vortex of the ancient drone.
