I’m cross posting this from the WTJU Folk Department blog because I couldn’t have said it better myself:

This past summer there was a tremendous effort put out to save WTJU in all its diversity from the threat of a wholesale change in the format of the station, with huge and vocal community support for free form, DJ driven programming. The result was a reprieve and a chance for the station to make a go of it in its current form, but the reality is it is only a reprieve. The university *requires* that the station increase student participation, listenership and revenue. Now is the time to work on #3 on that list…the upcoming jazz marathon gives you, dear reader, your first opportunity to ‘put your money where your mouth is’. It doesn’t matter if jazz isn’t your first listening priority (however, look at the diversity of ‘jazz’ on WTJU!), but consider this: a strong showing in the station’s first fundraiser following the summer brouhaha will go a long way in helping keep the wolf from the door. The goal for the fundraiser is $40,000…..go here to find out all about the fundraiser, go here to donate (and tell them the folk blog sent you…), go here to volunteer to help out with the fundraiser. Above all, please do something to help!
