Folk, World & Specialty Programs For 2015 WTJU Fall Pledge Drive

In case you have not heard, WTJU is trying something a little different this fall when it comes to fundraising.  Instead of the week long genre marathons, all the regular programs will instead stay on the air, and highlight what they do best with some extra special programming.  We hope you will call in your pledges at 434-924-3959, or by donating on-line.

Below is a list of what the folk,world and specialty programs have coming at you from October 1-11.  So sit back and enjoy, and thanks for calling in those pledges at 434-924-3959, or donating on-line.
