Wednesday, October 13, 2021

updated 10/25/21 ... Greetings dear listener! We are winding up our 45th anniversary celebration as Alabama's original public radio station. Thanks to everyone who has already contributed! WLRH became the state's first public radio station on October 13th, 1976. 45 years later we're still growing a legacy that provides the Tennessee Valley with reliable news, great music and powerful support of local nonprofits ... and we can't do it without you! This Fall Fund Drive, we need your support now more than ever, so please renew your membership or become a new sustaining member today. We have lots of special programs, contests and surprises planned this month, so visit this page for daily updates to our fundraising efforts and all the latest station news.

Our goal is to have 70 new members and $80,000 in the bank by the end of October. All current monthly contributions, mail-in donations, IRA contributions and one-time gifts count toward the goal!

We still have Bennett Nursery gift cards available as a Thank You gift, as well as mugs and tote bags with the super-cool design by Art Lady Sonya. They're a great way to support this station and keep your garden and landscape in tip-top shape. We also have other great thank you gifts, including CDs, HD radios and Echo Dots to help you access our HD channels and other goodies. CLICK HERE to explore our thank-you gifts and make your donation today.

Thanks to everyone who attended,called in or pledge online during our first two Open Houses. On October 29th, tune in for lots of spooky fun and surprises as Ginny Kennedy and Brad Posey co-host "Invisible Blend" ... and mash-up of two of our most popular original music shows, Morning Blend and The Invisible City. Each Open House will run between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.. The building is still closed due to the pandemic, but you can make a 'drive-by donation' and visit with us in the parking lot, or call our pledge line at 1-888-330-8989. 

However you choose to give, we hope to hear from you ... Thanks in advance!
