Donate to WTJU’s “Below the Radar” June appeal

The world is filled with great original music. And so are your ears thanks to WTJU.

Right now, we’re raising the money it takes to finish the budget year strong, and our goal is to raise $10,000 this month. We want to do it without interrupting our programming, so we’re going below the radar. The “Below the Radar,” no-call pledge drive takes place June 1st to 17th.

It takes a lot of resources to keep bringing you everything you count on. With classical, folk, jazz, rock, and lots more, WTJU is your source for incredibly diverse music curated by passionate and knowledgeable hosts.
