It is that time of again. We must ask for the help of the community and “Jazz Lovers”
to support U92. WUMR has a radiothon twice a year, in the summer, and in the fall.
This is the time when the station asks for continued financial support to help keep
jazz alive and well on the airwaves, and online.
WUMR will hold its “Jazz for the Holidays” Radiothon starting at 9:17 a.m. on Thursday,
November 29th and lasts until 9:17 p.m. Sunday, December 2nd, 2012. Yes, that is just
91.7 hours of pledges and donations.
We will keep playing the jazz listeners love and offer what gifts we can to all those
who pledge their support. U92 invites guests from the "Jazz Lover" family such as
musicians, community leaders, and supporters to come by and help U92. WUMR asks for
the support of the community in helping us to train the broadcasters of the future
and keep jazz - Americas own original musical art form - alive and well in Memphis
and around the world.
WUMR has also improved the online donation link so anyone can make a pledge at anytime
from anywhere in the world. To make a contribution, click on the "Make A Gift" button
on the WUMR homepage. The button is located below the "Quick Links" menu bar on the
left-hand side of the page or click here.
Thanks to your generous support, we are able to broadcast our content online to various
countries via the website and streaming audio. We will have fresh premiums for those
who donate, along with music donated by many of the artists whose songs we air on
