WGDR/WGDH, Goddard College Community Radio is made up of its many listeners, producers, volunteers, underwriters, and partners. This station gives voice to an under represented set of societal values that have become increasingly threatened by the fragmenting effects of digital connection. This small, but mighty station is now one of the most rare and precious of resources in a media landscape overrun by corporatized, mainstream propaganda and sensationalism. The preservation of this community station is a responsible action we share here in Central Vermont, but also one we’ve begun to share with the world.
WGDR’s fall pledge drive runs Monday, 9/25 through Monday, 10/2. Our goal this season is $17,500. With this, as with all of our campaigns, we need to show our major funders that you—our listener– need WGDR as a necessary part of your community life. We can’t do this without you. Please join me today in using the remittance materials included with this letter to give generously.
As with all of our station pledge drives, be sure to listen everyday for special programming. During this pledge drive, you’ll have an opportunity to be part of our live studio audience, as we host the local story telling favorite, Extempo, in the WGDR Pratt Interactive Theater, Monday, 9/25, 7:30pm. Be sure to visit our website for more exciting pledge drive information, and for details on thank-you gifts from all of our wonderful partnering business donors.
Thank you for supporting independent, socially just radio. Here’s to its endurance in Central Vermont.
Director, WGDR/WGDH, Goddard College Community Radio
