Although no candidate has stepped forward (yet) to challenge [Democrat] Rep. Scott Murphy after his narrow win in the 20th Congressional District, the freshman is building a war chest. The congressman’s staff said today he has $722,108 in the bank after raising $403,280 during the fourth quarter of 2009, Oct. 1- Dec. 31. The full report won’t be out until Jan. 31, but according to press secretary Josh Schwerin, 6,709 contributors gave money to Murphy.

On February 26, Wave Farm's terrestrial radio station, WGXC 90.7-FM turns 13. It’s a powerful thing to reflect on the last thirteen years of this project. So many people have contributed their voices, their time, their talent, and their dollars to keep this outrageous and unconventional station churning and transmitting, and we are grateful.
In this moment, we find ourselves poised for exciting growth, thanks to a recently expanded staff and Board, new energy, a terrific foundation of stalwart volunteer programmers complemented by rapidly joining new radiomakers. With your help, we can embrace the future with strength and enthusiasm.
We continue to work towards generating enough monthly supporters to secure a reliable base of support to meet the station’s basic operation expenses. Once our goal of $5,000 in monthly support is met, we’ll be able to end traditional pledge drives, and focus on making WGXC even more exceptional.
