Feb. 4-10: WTJU Folk Marathon explores its “Evolution”

Listen Live

Folk music, like WTJU, has definitely evolved over the years. But in order to continue that evolution, including a move to our new studios next month, we need you.

WTJU’s Folk Marathon hits the airwaves February 4-10 with an incredible lineup of special programs. We need your support to raise $60,000 to keep folk, roots, and world music alive and well on WTJU!  Many thanks to Kelly Lonergan for our Evolution t-shirt design — you can get one for yourself as a thank-you gift for donating during this fund drive.
