We've many rivers to cross, a mountain (of debt) to climb, and miles to go before we sleep* -- it's spring pledge drive!

Thanks to your support WRFG has been on the air 40+ years now, but we need your help to carry on. As with any organization that runs on a shoestring budget, it's easy to get behind on the bills, and when you do, it's very hard to catch up. WRFG is behind on payments to our tower where our transmitter resides. Without tower space, there is no radio broadcast. We can't let that happen! See the WRFG home page for more info.

Thanks to the wonderful callers this morning, we raised $540 dollars in contributions and pledges. I'll be listening for YOUR call next Thursday.

* (with apologies to Jimmy Cliff and Robert Frost!)
