WESU Middletown

01/02/2024

It’s Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024 and I hope you’re all starting off the New Year in a good place.

Last I looked, we’re at about 70% of our pledge drive goal of $25,000. I’m not sure what we’re doing now that the pledge drive was supposed to wrap up New Year’s Eve at midnight BUT I will say that we would welcome your support even if our deadline has come and gone. How to donate? Go to www.wesufm.org, click on the donate button and go from there. And, I’ll note that you can pledge and in return, get 𝐚𝐧 𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐜 𝐀𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜 𝐁𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐭-𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐫𝐭 as a premium. You can get shirts and other merchandise from other shows too.

As we usually do, we have birthdays to observe: Christine Lavin (TODAY), Terry (yesterday) and in the days after Christmas,, Tracy Nelson Music, John Hartford, Frank Turner, & Noel Paul Stookey. And we’ll play some music from some of the folks playing in our area like Eddie Seville, The CarLeans, The Mighty Soul Drivers and maybe more. And there will be new music too, as yet to be determined.

See you at 6pm on WESU Middletown, on TuneIn and at www.wesufm.org.
