We’ve done our best to be more nice than naughty, mailed our letters out to our favorite Santas and worked hard to settle WCOM into its new quarters. Now we are relying on you to keep the station that is here to keep you company any time of day or night, on the air. We were very fortunate that we did not have to pay for rent and the major part of utilities for our first five years of our existence. That has changed with our new location.
While the cost of operating this all-volunteer, non-profit community radio station is still minimal when compared with the value it delivers and with the cost of other stations that have heavy salary loads to carry, it is still more than it was. Besides the new rent and utility bills we have financial costs for internet streaming, insurance, equipment upkeep, telephone, music license fees, and fees for fantastic programs like Democracy Now and Free Speech Radio, among other things. What has not changed is that every cent goes directly towards maintaining the station, all donations are tax deductible and that we are dedicated to reflecting the diversity that makes this community vibrant and unique.
Your support is critical to keeping this very special community resource up and running. Please click on the Donate Now button to make a secure donation on line or mail a check for whatever amount is comfortable for you to WCOM, 208 E. Main Street, Carrboro, NC 27510. Its the best buy for your entertainment dollars.
Thank you from all the WCOM volunteers who are working to bring you the best radio around.
