Pledge Your Support to WNKU today and You Could Win a VIP Trip for Two to Forecastle Music Festival


“I’ve seen a lot of things come and go over the years but WNKU has always been an important and consistent source of quality music, outreach and promotion. The station is a valuable resource I’ve come to rely on. I’d hate to even imagine a musical life in this town without them. ” – Billy Alletzhauser, The Hiders

Billy is one of thousands of listeners who believe WNKU is an important resource for music and information in our community. Only on WNKU can you hear the most creative artists in contemporary music -in addition to news from the tri-state and around the world.

You can help ensure WNKU continues to provide all of this and more for years to come.

On June 30th, WNKU will close the books on this fiscal year. Together we’ve raised just over $333,000 toward our goal of $350,000 in listener support.
You can help us raise the last little bit by making a tax-deductible contribution today. With the contributions of our listeners, we can count down the goal by raising the remaining $16,970 over the next two days.
