WFMU prides itself on holding only one on-air fundraiser per year: our annual Marathon, which is a 2-week-long frenzy of great prize giveaways, hilarious co-host banter, surprise guests, and more caffeine than a case of Sparks (RIP). The listener support we bring in during the Marathon is normally enough to fuel our fire for a full year. While WFMU came very close to making our goal during the Marathon this March, we still fell short (I smell recession).
Because it's tough to operate with an empty bank account and there's an entire winter to get through until our next Marathon, WFMU needs to break with tradition by holding a brief on-air fundraiser next week.
This will be our first and hopefully last ever 24-Hour Marathon, and we will do our best to make sure it is chock-full of fun-loving antics and amazing giveaways. We hope you can help us out with a year-end donation, and be sure to tune in next Tues-Wed! The deets:WFMU's 24-Hour Marathon
