WTJU’s Rock Marathon brings the goods, April 19 – 25

WTJU’s Rock Marathon is raising $40,000 to keep WTJU thriving. Support the station today!

After our long pandemic winter, the hallmarks of spring feel especially reassuring these days. The chirping birds… the flowering dogwoods… and WTJU’s Rock Marathon.

We start the celebration on Friday, April 16 with our first-ever Music Radio Trivia Night. Emceed by Bob Nastanovich of Pavement fame, we’ll bend your brain with a bevy of trivia questions about rock and WTJU history. Get your team together now!

Then on Sunday, April 18, 1 – 4 p.m., your favorite WTJU Rock DJs spin wax at Potter’s Craft Cider for the 2021 debut of our Vinyl Takeover series.

The Rock Marathon itself runs for a full week — April 19 – 25. Killer music will float through the air like pollen as we bring you every shade and texture of rock. And also roll. Plus neighboring styles and genres.

WTJU’s Rock Marathon is raising $40,000 to keep this music-loving community afloat. Show your love for the station that loves you back. Please donate today.

This April, the Rock Marathon stands ready to redeem a rough day, brighten a dreary afternoon, and keep you jumping in the night. It’s musical nourishment for your ears and soul just when you need it most.
