Thank You WCBN Community!

WCBN raised over $20,000 thanks to the generous support of listeners in our community! Thank you to everyone who "resubscribed" to the inventive, exploratory, nonconformist freeform radio experiment that is WCBN. Your support will keep us on the air another year. In the mean time, we will do our best to get premia gifts packed and shipped!

Even though our fundraiser is over, listeners can still donate to the station using the Donate tab above. Support of any amount at any time is always welcome and greatly appreciated.


Super sweet gatefold edition. Radio only. #buzzcocks

Some records at WCBN reach this well-worn state in spite of the diligent efforts of volunteers whose jobs include repairing jackets such as this one. Finding an LP in this condition signals our new DJs that the record they are holding has been loved by multiple generations before them and is part of the magic that can be found in our humble little basement.

University of Michigan students of all schools and departments are welcome to become a part of this magic. Introductory training sessions, which include a tour and a brief orientation, take place every Sunday at 4pm. With a little focus and determination, you could become a DJ with your own show in just a few weeks. For more information just shoot us an email!

Sunday will be a presentation and book signing by artist Steven Cerio, whose psychedelic and creepy cartoons have been most prominently featured by The Residents, among other acts including King Crimson, Les Claypool, and Negativland.
