Our 2023 Fundraising Marathon is over, and we hit our goal! Thanks to the many listeners, volunteers, and WFMU staffers who pledged. Due to all of our pandemic precautions, this was the biggest gatherings of people we've had in years, and it was such a great feeling to be around friends again. I'm so grateful for this place and all who help it continue to exist and thrive. If you missed out on the action, you can still make a pledge right here. Thanks again!
