Radiothon ’18

As a WJCU listener, you play a crucial part in helping us bring live, non-commercial content to the greater Cleveland area and the world. During our annual Radiothon this week, we ask to you help us "carry the torch" and pass down the WJCU legacy to future generations of listeners, DJs, and hosts by pledging your support with a modest donation.

Every penny of your Radiothon donation is used by WJCU to meet ever-increasing technology and operational expenses. The only way we can keep WJCU going and growing is with your financial support.

Help us carry the torch that was lit back in 1969 by donating today!
