Since I last wrote, we finished up the 2021 WFMU Fundraising Marathon and raised more money than we ever have before! Thanks so much to all the labels who donated the prizes that we were able to give away to listeners, and thanks to you if you were able to donate. We are so grateful to have been able to stay on the air throughout this past year, and it feels great to know that our listeners feel the same. 

In other news, WFMU has a list of grassroots organizations including resources related to social justice movements and the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out this page for a growing list of useful resources.
