#WPRB2019

 

SPRING WPRB MEMBERSHIP DRIVE - Monday, April 22, 2019 - 6:00am - until May 01, 2019 - 8:00pm

CLASSICAL DISCOVERIES FUND DRIVE EDITIONS
Wednesday, April 24, 2019 from 5:00 - 11:00am and
Wednesday, May 01, 2019 from 5:00 - 11:00am
You can phone your pledge in at 609-258-1033
or you can pledge on line at pledge.wprb.com

Dear Friends of Classical Discoveries!

The Annual Membership Drive is coming to WPRB starting April 22, at 6:00am and will last through May 01, 2019 at 08:00pm.

WPRB is a student run station that consists of a voluntary staff of students and community DJ's and is not funded by Princeton University (they provide us the operating space).
WPRB does not receive funds from other sources. Your donations will be used for the station's operating costs.
This is a second year when WPRB has added the option of being a sustaining member with the minimum donation of $10.00 per month.

If being a sustaining member is not right for you, you can make a one time pledge.  No pledge amounts are too small.  Our goal for our membership drive this year is to have 1033 unique donors. 

Internet pledges will be eligible for Classical Discoveries special premium drawings in addition to WPRB premiums assigned to each donation amount .
Special Editions of Classical Discoveries will air on two Wednesdays, April 24 and May 01, starting at 5:00am and lasting until 11:00am.
At the end of each hour there will be a lottery drawing of 2 CD packs of 3 discs each, all selected by Marvin featuring the type of repertoire that is presented on Classical Discoveries.

As always, there will be minimum talking and plenty of wonderful new music and a preview of some of the CD premiums (check listing of CDs that you might win if you pledge during my show at: http://www.classicaldiscoveries.org/index_cd_premiums_2019_temporary_file.html).

"Classical Discoveries", in its 22th year on the air, provides listeners with music rarely heard anywhere else. Many radio stations are claiming discoveries, but please remember where you heard for the first time or the only time, works from various little known living composers from around the world. Where have you heard 24/25 hour hosted New Music Marathons, wonderful little known Treasures of Early Music, or an entire month of programming devoted exclusively to women composers? Just check any playlist and tell me how many names you know? A program like this could only happen on WPRB.

Please remember to support Classical Discoveries by calling Wednesday morning, April 24 and May 01, from 5:00am until 11:00am and other times during our 10 day Membership Drive, to support the station and all the unique programs that you will not hear anywhere else (but to qualify for the special Classical Discoveries gift drawings you must donate on Wednesdays during Classical Discoveries) at: 609-258-1033 or at pledge.wprb.com with your pledges regardless if you are listening via the airwaves, Internet or the archived MP3 sound files on my website. A tremendous amount of time goes into providing the last option to you each week.

Again, no donation is too small to help keep WPRB and its unique programming on the air.
