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.

Yiddish Glory tells the remarkable story of folklorists in the Soviet Union who risked their lives collecting songs from Jewish Red Army soldiers, Jewish refugees, victims and survivors of Ukrainian ghettos. Following the war, the researchers were arrested by Stalin; their work was confiscated, and they died thinking the collection was lost to history. But the songs were later discovered in unmarked boxes stored in the basement of the Ukrainian National Library, and brought to life through painstaking research, for the first time in 75 years.
