Make a pledge today, Saturday, before 7pm and get in our "Goin' Across The Mountain" LIVE ticket giveaway.

Wow. It's really hard to believe we have been on the air for more than 30 years! We have always been listener supported and we are so very thankful for all of the donations that have kept us alive and well for three decades.

Earlier this year we had a contest to see who could come up with the collest logo to celebrate our "Big Three Oh." The winner hands down was Rob Hibbitts who came up with this wonderful sunrise design.

Happy Saturday! It's the last day of the Fall Fundraiser and we're having a great morning in Studio B listening to Jazz and Beyond and looking forward to Goin' Across the Mountain. Thanks for all the support from our WNCW family. We have lots of great incentives to help bring you to the phone to call us at 800 245 8870 - one of them being a Fly Fishing Trip for two, courtesy of our long time friend and supporter Galen Kipar. Giveaway ends at 11am.

Cosmic Fans Unite! We have a new Cosmic American Music Show shirt designed with Gram Parsons in mind. Cosmic Host Brad Watson was thinking about how super cool Gram's Nudie Suit was, and he and WNCW's Brenda Craig came up with this design based on the Nudie. The shirt is the show's 10th Annivesary tee. We all LOVE it and know you will too! You can call us and pledge at 800 245 8870 and  you can pledge online... just click here > DONATE and pick up the new Cosmic T-shirt.

Make a pledge before 9pm tonight, to your favorite public radio station - WNCW and we'll automatically enter you into our fantastic Pre-Jam Giveaway. The winner will receive two VIP tickets to the Pre-Jam - December 13th, and the Christmas Jam on December 14th.

Our amazing Underwriting Marketing Manager Brenda Craig designed this colorful, retro tie dye t-shirt so we thought she should model it for us today! Did you know if you pair up any two items you get $10 off each item... for example: Pair up the retro shirt with a tie dye "Sili Pint" and get both of these super cool thank you gifts for a $100 dollar pledge - normally it would be $120. Remember, you can pair up any of our groovy thank-gifts and get the same discount. It's for call in pledges only, so give us a ring at 800-245-8870.
