The day ahead at WGXC: Program notes

The WGXC Sustaining Membership Drive continues all this week. Becoming a WGXC sustaining member means you donate a specific amount of money to the station on a monthly basis. Sustaining membership provides consistent income for the station and can help WGXC spend less time with on-air fundraising and more time with normal programming. It is also the greenest way to donate -- no paperwork, just sign up online. And there is no minimum or maximum donation -- you can become a sustaining member at any level you choose. Sign up at wgxc.org/donate, or simply call the station at (518) 697 7400.
