As with any radio station, WJCU requires funds to continue operation and improve services. As a non-profit organization, WJCU does not turn to advertisers for this funding; we provide you with commercial-free radio 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. While we are funded by John Carroll’s Communications Department, much of the money that enables us to provide you with quality radio is from you, the listeners. If you enjoy WJCU, please consider donating during Radiothon, our yearly fundraising drive.

WordplayWordplay is an offbeat mix of poetry, comedy, and an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of the spoken word. Wordplay's opening monologue blends music and language (and sometimes sound effects) into a surreal, funny, often darkly serious meditation on the state of one man's struggles to live in the bewildering world of contemporary America. The show also features guest appearances by local poets and nationally known writers. But the real strength of Wordplay is the interaction between co-hosts George Bilgere and John Donoghue. The two poets read short, interesting poems by important writers. They banter about poetry, argue about it, and generally give each other a hard time. A Plain Dealer article about Wordplay called the show "the Click and Clack of poetry." Not a bad description.
