Community radio is a great investment because we all want to place our money in institutions we believe in and where we have the most resonance. If local media and intellectually curious programming intrigue you, perhaps this spring is your chance to invest in your local community radio station .
Hearing a community radio station’s membership drive is like hearing the soul of the community. You’ll catch the local musician reflecting on what a station means to the area scene and how it provides a venue to be heard. City nonprofits and businesses come through to share stories about local radio. You may even hear a local child dropping off coins she or he collected to contribute.
Local stations offer an important gathering place. Where local music and culture rarely has space on any venue anymore — print, television, podcast, etc. — community radio remains important. Community radio stations give residents a chance to talk about what’s happening around us and to give a perspective we do not normally get to hear. Then there are the catastrophes such as hurricanes, fires, floods and earthquakes during which stations provide essential information.
WSLR is almost wholly locally funded and depends on the contributions of listeners. We hope you’ll choose to support our hometown community radio WSLR 96.5 with your contribution this Spring.
