WCBN FUNDRAISER 2015!

Dear WCBN community,

Hi, I'm Karl, the general manager of CBN.  Thanks for reading.  Our annual fundraiser, where we receive the vast majority of our operating budget for the year, is Feb. 6-15th!

 Lots of things are getting better at algorithmically figuring out our tastes for us, which is, I don't know, kinda cool I guess, but I think there is something invaluable about a resource that's messy, unpredictable, and unusually enjoyable.

 We're all volunteers at CBN, and we do it because we are obsessed with music and authentic thought.  Really obsessed.  We exist for you; from our 30-year veterans you know and love to our wide-eyed new DJs who can't believe what 70,000 vinyl records look like on shelves.

 Please dig deep to keep us running.  We cannot exist without your support.  Our sights are set high this year: $50,000.  We have to make it happen, and we are counting on you!  This is about 10% higher than last year - so give 20% more! There are extremely easy ways to donate, but I want to suggest calling us.  Online is easy and great, but WCBN is about connections deeper than a passive listening experience, and we want to hear what you like!  (and don't like).  Plus we can advise you on the coolest T-shirts and stuff.

Thank you for any and all generosity you can show us during fundraiser.  From a personal standpoint, WCBN is one of the most important things in my life, and I invite you to join me in making a proud decision to donate to a crucial community institution.

Thank you!  

- Karl
