A few days ago Gary Null received a call from Pacifica's Executive Director Summer Reese, who told him that the morning hours were tanking.
She asked if I would come on to help. I looked at the numbers and I couldn't believe it --
from 5:00 am - 11:00 am we were bringing in tiny amounts - sometimes as little as 50 dollars!
Well here's the good news - in the last 3 days we've raised over 70,000 dollars, whereas before that we hadn't even raised 7,000 dollars.
So now we're able to pay the transmitter bill and the salaries.
I've been on WBAI for 37 years and 5 months and this has always been listener-supported radio. The listeners are supporting the station and we must always remember to put the listeners first.
Thank you, Gary!
