Support Your Local Not For Profit Radio Stations

I regular donate to WBGO and WFUV since they provide an alternative radio programming. Today I sent a donation to WBGO which I profiled in this journal last August. I understand that with the current economic situation these must be tough times for cultural institutions that rely on donations. WBGO also offers new programming that is relevant to Newark, its city of license and home to NJIT, my employer. In 2009 WBGO is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. It is very ususual for a radio station to keep the same format for 30 years. I don't know of any commercial stations that play traditional jazz.
