'Tis The Season For Our "Jazz For The Holidays" Radiothon
For Release: December 3, 2013
For more information, contact: WUMR-FM (901) 678-4000 or 1-877-955-5299
It's the Jazz For The Holidays Radiothon. It's the time when we here at WUMR ask you,
the members of "The Jazz Lover Family" to join us in our efforts to raise funds, and
awareness of our jazz station.
Why? Well, for one thing money is tight, as you all know, and we need the help, only
twice each year do we request that you show us your love with a generous donation.
For another thing, Jazz does not get the recognition it deserves and we are dedicated
to changing that. Finally, we are a part of the University of Memphis, which is one
of the most important assets as a Memphian.
Not only Memphians have a stake in this, but everyone listening on the air or online
must help to keep America's own original musical art for alive and well for the sake
of the music itself. Our efforts, and your help, can continue to push jazz into the
status of popular culture that it enjoyed at its beginning when times were tough and
jazz helped to bring joy to a suffering nation.
Each day, from December 1st thru December 8th, Sunday to Sunday, we will be playing
your favorite tunes and songs, offering albums and other goodies and generally doing
all we can to make this the most fun and successful Radiothon we've ever had.
Call us at 901-678-4000, or 1-877-955-5299 (JAZZ) or pledge online at wumr.memphis.edu
and make a gift. It's that simple. Support the Jazz For The Holidays Radiothon 2013
