Our Spring Pledge Drive is underway this week! WESM-FM is on a mission to change the way you hear the world. It's made possible through the generous financial support from listeners like you.

This time around, our aim is to keep the program interruptions as brief as possible. We want you to enjoy the programs we offer to the fullest! But to do that, we need everyone to support this public radio station! The more pledges we receive, the less we have to interrupt programming.

WESM asks listeners to 'make a difference'

Dec 1, 2015

The important news, the thoughtful conversations, the deep dive into people, places and ideas, the top quality jazz, blues, folk and world music – you tune in because you truly value and understand the power of fresh ideas, enriching music and the search for greater understanding through information and sound.  But none of this is possible without your support.

WESM’s Fall 2015 Membership Campaign is November 30 – December 6, 2015, and it’s a great way to show your support for this programming, and this station.
