Preble Street is preparing to distribute 1,000 food boxes during their Harvest Pantries this year, and they will need to purchase some of the food for the boxes (600+ turkeys, etc.), so every dollar matters more than ever! Preble Street is able to purchase food at a non-profit rate of $1 = 7 pounds of food, so your dollar will stretch more than buying retail. Click below to learn more or donate!

This year's 15th annual Stuff The Bus Fundraiser for Preble Street kicks off today! Presented by Town & Country Federal Credit Union Maine, happening now through November 24th. While CLZ hasn't participated in past years, we've decided to jump on board for 2020 to help ensure its success!

Due to the pandemic, the need for donations this year is HUGE. Preble Street is now serving three times the amount of meals they were serving just 6 months ago, and they need our help to keep up with this increased demand. Please take a moment to share the link, give what you can, and help us make sure no Mainer goes hungry this season.

Congratulations to our friend Randy Miller at Newcastle Chrysler up in Newcastle. Tim spoke to Randy during his show about Newcastle Chrysler’s 5th Annual “Night of Pink” fundraiser on October 23rd. Even in a crazy year, Randy pulled together his supporters and raised over $22,000 in a single night— the biggest Night of Pink ever!! All in all, the American Cancer Society’s “Real Men Wear Pink” effort in October raised over $100k for cancer care and research. WAY over their original 2020 goal of $70,000. Congrats to all!! 👚👏👏👏

yall just made my day w that epic stella blue!!! thank you!!
Love to hear you play Pete Kilpatrick's Song From the Green Room - Just Be
Hey 98.9 WCLZ! I miss seeing your song titles in the scrolling RDS in my car. Will it return??
It's Wednesday at 9:42 PM. Whoever is on the air ( I haven't caught the name, (tried. and your site still doesn't credit who is on the air) and Ainsel earlier, they are doing great radio! I am still somewhat listening days however...
Help Please? there was or is a song by a female Artist that you play...thought the title was Blue skies...one of the lyrics is "The farther I run, the farther I fall, whatever I thought means nothing at all...trees are growing taller the birds are flying higher...something...something Blue Skies...ends with good bye good bye good bye... can anyone please help me remember it?
Why do you feel it necessary to block me listening to your station. I keep getting a message saying the stream is not available in my area. Obviously I'm not in the USA It's so easy to bypass the system so why the pathetic attempt at restricting who can listen?
Sooo happy to welcome Jessie Brandon back!
Hello. I discovered WCLZ a couple years ago, and as a fan of alternative music, I have enjoyed it a lot ever since, but less so recently... Lately, I have noticed more and more oldies / classic rock mixed in with the alternative music I love. Is WCLZ changing formats to an oldie or classic rock station? It seems very out of character from the wonderful, mostly alternative music your station has historically played, and there is such an over-saturation of oldies and classic rock stations already. Personally, I would, once again, love to hear more alternative music from the 90s to today, and less oldies from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
hey guys: can anybody help us remember the name of an old song, about 10 years ago: it was from a Portland "supergroup"; it had a low beat like big bang baby and something about "Tea and Whiskey" or honey and whiskey or something? about 8or 10 years ago... thanks!!!
Really enjoying your playlist today!! I like listening to the radio and find myself switching from CLZ to FRANK FM and WBLM.I am from Maine and grew up listening to BLM but it seems like they play the same songs over and over. Today I said to myself if I hear Juke Box Hero one more time I am switching the station. Sure enough...........
I've been working around Portland for three weeks now and left my radio on your station the entire time. Music I loved but hadn't heard in ages, interspersed with music I've never heard but really like. Kudos, stay gold!
Last hour!!! Awesome songs!!
