Your public radio stations' recent drive ended with a bang! Our spring membership campaign raised more than $150,244 to sustain WXXIâ€™s services. 1,345 public radio listeners made contributions over a few short days.

You know what I mean!) to express how happy we are to serve you day in and day out, offering the best performances we can our lay hands on.
