WZBC Fundraiser Update!

^^^^^^^ Check out the tees! ^^^^^^^^^

WZBC is hosting its biennial fundraiser this year. Since 'zbc is a non-commercial station, we rely heavily on the wonderful support of our listeners to keep things running in our end of town. We understand that economic times are tough right now, but any amount that you can spare is greatly appreciated.

If you've ever been kicked off of our online stream, you can understand the frustration with not having enough stream slots for the station. With your pledges, we'll look to increase the slot numbers.

If you've ever been to one of our "WZBC welcomes..." concerts, you also know that we look to bring in the best and most exciting acts from the past and present. Just last week, WZBC welcomed Wire to Boston in support of their new album.

Additionally, we have a ton of great gifts to give for certain donation amounts.

Station Premiums:
Bottle Openers
Tee Shirts
Tote bags
Grab bags

We have a bunch of cds available including:

Stereolab- Chemical Chords
Tapes 'n Tapes- Walk It Off

Persuasion at The Speaker Project

Hey Z-sters,

Just wanted to give you a quick heads up about a really cool exhibit going on right now at the Stephen D. Paine Gallery at MassArt. The Speaker Project is a "sculptural sound project" by Chicago artist Juan Angel Chavez. The exhibit runs until November 22. Even more good news: FREE ENTRY!

WZBC's own Sarah Joy and Will Lynch of Persuasion (Thursday NCP II) will be doing a DJ set for the exhibit this Saturday, October 18, from 12p-2p. The set they're planning is a little more spacey than Persuasion's usual gamut of deep house and minimal techno. Instead, to showcase the installation's unique soundscape, Will and SJ will be focusing on more atmospheric, avant-garde, echoing electronic tracks (e.g., Gas, Deepchord, Robert Henke, Klimek, etc.)

If you can't make it out this Saturday, be sure to check out this awesome exhibit before it closes in November. Check out the website above for a full schedule of performances.

(And don't forget... this week is our biennial fundraiser! So call 617-552-4686 to share some love with WZBC!)
