Radiothon ’17

As a WJCU listener, you play a pivotal role in the live, non-commercial radio that we share with the greater Cleveland area and around the world. This week, we encourage you to help us continue our strong tradition of 47 years of live and local broadcasting by pledging your support with a modest donation.

While all our on-air staff are unpaid volunteers, there are significant expenses involved in keeping the station open, running, and broadcasing over the air and Internet. Every penny of the money donated during Radiothon is used by WJCU to meet these ever-increasing technology and operational expenses. The only way we can keep WJCU going and growing is with your financial support.

Help keep WJCU stayin' alive by donating today!
