It's that time of year again... We want your designs!!! The WAYO Fundraiser is just around the corner and we're looking for artists to create a t-shirt design and a bumper sticker design. The winning designs will each receive $100 CASHHHHHH (or Venmo, PayPal, whatever you like) PLUS the satisfaction of seeing your design on people's shirts and bumpers all across town!
In light of the recent allegations of sexual assault and harassment against an individual in the Rochester arts community, WAYO would like to take a moment to stand in solidarity with survivors and reiterate our commitment to fostering a safe and welcoming community for our DJs, guests, and listeners. We commend those who share their stories and will continue to support efforts towards their healing, safety, and recovery.
You’re invited! It’s our monthly Wednesday shindig at The Bug Jar on January 22! This month is extra special cuz it’s WAYO’s FOURTH Birthday! We’ll have cake, pizza, and dancing to fantastic music from our mighty DJ’s! Show your WAYO member card and get in FREE, but your slacker friends will have to pay $5 to get inside! 8 pm to LATE!
We cannot thank you enough for your support and your belief that WAYO deserves to continue on the Rochester airwaves. Because of the generosity of our listeners and the hard work of our programmers and volunteers, we are ecstatic to announce that we have raised over $21,861, blowing away our $20,000 goal and ensuring the future of the station for the next year. These funds will allow us to pay our operating costs as well as maintain our studio equipment. We'll also be making a few upgrades to our production studio and expand our presence at events around the city.
To celebrate the final day of our fundraising campaign, WAYO is throwing an all-day listener party on Friday, November 3rd! Starting at 11 am and running to midnight, our doors will be open for behind the scenes tours, food and drink, and portraits with the WAYO boom box. And, of course, in person donations if you haven’t already donated at https://donate.wayofm.org! With a donation the size of the cost of a coup of coffee a month, you can make a huge impact on WAYO’s bottom line and get great perks.
