The third annual WCOM Benefit Concert at the Kraken returned on Saturday, August 17th 2019 in White Cross, just west of Carrboro. Postponed by a hurricane in 2018, artists donate their time with all tips going to all volunteer, non-profit WCOM radio.
We appreciate everyone who came out for our most successful Kraken concert by far.We collected a total of $837.30 (roughly 4% of our annual budget). The first two combined earned $997.
The Kraken concert is a highlight of the WCOM calendar, bringing together our community in a fun atmosphere. The nest two station events are the Annual Meeting in October and the celebration of WCOM’s 15th birthday at the Hickory Tavern on Thursday, November 7th.
We appreciate the inventiveness and energy of Eliza Dubose in making the concert an event.Thanks to our emcees: Jerry Villemain and Becky Johnson. The event could not happen at all without the generosity of the Kraken staff, its owners Kirk and Jody, and its generous regulars. Most of all, we appreciate the exceptional musicians who donated their time to benefit your community radio station, WCOM.

WCOM Rockin’ the Kraken Schedule, Saturday, August 17, 2019
The WCOM Board discussed how to make the audio of the report available – while deciding against pre-empting shows for broadcast, we are using our website to point listeners to the audio on the web at muellerreportaudio.com. The publication of the report was released April 18, 2019, and is available at justice.gov/storage/report.pdfary
For many of us, sitting down to read through the entire report page-by-page is unrealistic. Making this available in an audio format, without biased political commentary. Because of the wide public interest in the document, believe it should be available for free for anyone.
You can support in other ways by telling your coworkers, friends and
family about the show, sharing the episodes on social media, and rating
and reviewing the podcast on the various platforms are other ways to
help return the value you get from this production effort.
