DONATE NOW

PLEDGE THANK-YOU GIFTS

Once again, the long arm of coincidence has swept us toward another edition of the annual WTJU Rock Marathon. So rubber-cement your radio dial in to place and join us for the ride of the year, from Monday, April 10 through Sunday, April 16!

Please take a moment today to renew your commitment to local, eclectic, non-commercial, kinda weird-but-awesome independent radio WTJU, lighting up your life with every flavor of music every day. DONATE HERE.

For this year’s Rock Marathon, our cracked squad of volunteer DJs has conspired to inspire with another bounty of killer shows. We’ll cover the waterfront of all that rocks. Don’t miss our ever-popular decade shows, weeknights 7:00-9:00pm during the Rock Marathon, featuring the best music of 1967, 1977, 1987, 1997, and 2007.
