WCOM is partnering with our neighbor Vecino Brewing to help you support WCOM FM while quenching your summer thirst.

Starting in July, WCOM is teaming up with our neighbor at the end of the building, Vecino Brewing. Both Vecino and WCOM are located at 300 North Main in Carrboro.

WCOM your community radio station broadcast a 100-watt signal in Chapel Hill on 103.5 FM. WCOM was the first low-power FM community radio station in the area to be set up under a program established by the Federal Communications Commission in 2000 to license “LPFM” (Low Power FM) stations. Low-power FM is grassroots radio – an effort to counterbalance the increasing concentration of radio ownership by a few large corporations. Now through the power of technology, you can listen to WCOM streaming online on any device at www.wcomfm.org and could even host your own show!

Starting July 1 Vecino Brewing will support your community radio station. 10% of every Tea Time IPA will be donated throughout the month and we will be jointly hosting some fun activities to raise awareness for Carrboro’s community radio station – WCOM!
