Dear Gentle Listeners,
This year’s membership drive starts on Thursday, October 13th, 7pm and ends on Thursday, October 20th, 10pm.
Around this time last year, we were preparing to celebrate 75 years of WPRB, one of New Jersey’s most precious cultural phenomena, with our most ambitious membership drive to date. The response to our celebration was incredible and heartwarming. We are so grateful to have struck a chord in our community and to be the recipient of such generosity from donors. In every sense of the phrase, we could not have done it without you.
The drive’s success has allowed us to work more effectively to create the kind of broadcasting that our community needs and deserves. We have updated necessary equipment, including our emergency alert system, our CD playing equipment, and our computer in the on-air studio. We’re moving towards broadcasting our unique content on a professional platform.
We’re capturing this momentum and propelling forward, taking WPRB’s sense of history into the modern age. This year, we hope to fulfill a long-term goal of remote broadcasting capabilities. Purchasing the equipment necessary to broadcast outside of our main studio would open up a new world of sounds to put on your dial, including live concerts and interviews.
So once again, we need your help to celebrate another year of WPRB.
Our annual fall membership drive will take place from Thursday, October 13th, 7pm – Thursday, October 20th, 2016, 10 pm. We hope that you’ll tune in during that time for our favorite on-air party of the year. We’ll bring the entertainment, while you give us a ring on the phone or visit our donation page. As always, we’ll say thank you with great swag and awesome giveaways. Stay tuned to our social media for behind-the-scenes action!
Love and radio,
Zena Kesselman ‘17
