Hello listeners, alumni, parents, et al. Now marks the beginning of the annual Hustle Week, KWUR's yearly allocated time to ask a bit harder for money and support!
We have some important opportunities in the near future that will be made possible by your donations, including the improvement of our current radio signal and a big push towards a new opportunity to increase our station's wattage. More details about our current situation, of particular interest to KWUR alumni, can be found here: http://kwur.com/alumni-letter/
Donations can be made this week by calling in to pledge at (314) 935-5952. DJs will be manning the phones most hours from 9:00 AM to midnight from Sunday to Saturday to take your pledges. (NOTE: Some people have contacted us wondering if there is an alternative method besides checks, i.e. paypal, to make donations. There currently is not, BUT pledge anyway and we'll work this week to figure out how to set one up). Make checks out to KWUR 90.3 FM, and send them to this address:
KWUR 90.3 FM
Campus Box 1205
One Brookings Dr.
St. Louis, MO 63130
Here's a quick rundown of what gifts can be earned by different levels of donation:
$10 – KWUR picture postcard with special KWUR k?ans (also included in
donations over $25)
$25 – Limited edition, high quality silk-screened KWUR t-shirt
$50 – A custom station I.D., thanking you for your donation (and
including any other requested tidbits) that we will air live
$100 – Name a part of the station after you or someone of your choice.
$200 – Get a song written about you in the style of your choice, and recorded in KWUR's very own recording studio.
Also, we have some exciting events happening this week. Tune in between 8 PM on Thursday and 8 AM on Friday to hear the always-adventerous all-night broadcast. If you are Washington University student, come to the DJ Showcase at the Gargoyle on Friday the 1st at 8PM, where 6 talented KWUR DJs will be spinning stuff that you'll want to dance to.
Support free-form community radio! We are very thankful for any contribution that you decide to make.
