Listen In and Listen Up: A Message from Brown County Hour producer Pam Raider
The fall fund drive for our local community radio station WFHB (FM91.3 and 100.7) begins on October 3rd and runs through October 12th. By definition, this station is listener supported and volunteer powered – nothing would happen without our participation and support. And I for one am grateful for their varied and entertaining programming from the eclectic variety of music, including live Lotus entertainment, to award winning daily local news. I have learned so much from their many talk shows, interviews and taped lectures.
WFHB is a connection to the wider world not only through what we hear but because we get to share our stories on The Brown County Hour twice each month (we are into our fifth year of production). On the first Sunday of the drive, October 5th episode 31 of The Brown County Hour will air at 9 am with two of the team members, Dave Seastrom and Pam Raider, hosting live on the air. By the way you can also catch this or any of our past episodes on line at browncountyhour.com or streamed from wfhb website. I hope you will tune in and let the station know you support the show by pledging some amount which you can do by calling 812-323-1200 or on line at wfhb.org. Let’s keep this signal strong – it takes everyone’s help to pay the expenses.
It is important to continue to support unique local endeavors that keep community strong. WFHB is a training ground for citizen journalists who learn how to report on critical issues in their own backyard, this is community empowerment, something we could use more of.
During this fund drive week in October, you will have another opportunity to show your support by coming out to Muddy Boots on Friday October 10th where we will be broadcasting live from 1 – 3 pm, and Kade Puckett will be performing at 1:20 p.m. and the Indiana Boys will be performing at 2:20 p.m. You just might get on the air yourself as one of the proud supporters of WFHB. Where else do you have a chance to actually participate in a radio station?
Since our pledges are votes for programs we like, we actually help determine on air content. So step up and keep this signal strong by supporting us during this fund drive. I think you’ll be glad you did.
