Our Third Anniversary fund raiser in August was a success!
A sincere THANK YOU to all who participated: volunteers, listeners, new and old. And we offer a special thanks to the anonymous donor who put up the matching funds and got us off to a fast start.
TheWorkFM really is a community station totally staffed by volunteer hosts, writers, those in the background who keep the station on the air, pay the bills and find and fix the equipment. And let’s not forget the hours that go into finding and developing talent, helping with production, operating the mix board etc. These tireless efforts help us to multiply our voice from it’s original FM signal to Internet Streaming, Facebook Live, YouTube, and soon even more social media.
Our mission is to build community, largely by presenting the parts that work and knitting them together along with the many other community organizations, social networks, churches, clubs an other interest groups that give people a chance to be socially creative and work to amplify the voices and ideas that have been held back or starved for resources, attention, validation, or simply neglected.
Soon you will be hearing more on our next fundraiser and Local Music Showcase to be held at Rick’s Rock Cafe at 1500 Eastridge Road on the 26th of September at 8PM. There will be an affordable $5 cover for a program featuring 5 local bands, hopefully comedians, possibly a jazz singer and some Slam Poetry.
Currently the music lineup is: Serenata, Freddie C. and the Happy Days Band, the Blue River Boys and Lucid.
It will be a lot of fun and will help TheWorkFM expand into offering some entertainment at our fundraisers.
The entire event will be livecast on YouTube and Facebook live and streamed and broadcast as possible (avoiding ASCAP and BMI protected music of course!).
So thanks to all for your help with our Third Anniversary fundraiser, and we hope you’ll join us for the next one! And all toward building community of course, building a bridge from city to county, left to right, across all the divides that are keeping us from being a healthy, functional society.
