WOW -- we can't believe how much fun we had at the WAYO Benefit Record Fair at Lux Lounge this past Sunday. Thanks to everyone who came out to support us and buy records, and an even BIGGER thanks to Russ from Needle Drop Recordsfor organizing the fair, getting raffle prizes, coordinating vendors... we can't thank you enough. The fair helped raise over $1500 for WAYO -- that's enough to run WAYO for a whole month and then some!
WAYO is excited to announce a special summer record fair hosted by Lux Lounge and Needle Drop Records. Proceeds from door donations, raffle, and more will help benefit your favorite local radio station, WAYO 104.3FM!
The Record Fair will feature local vendors selling vinyl, CDs, tapes, video, and other new and used merchandise. In addition, a bunch of your favorite WAYO DJs will be spinning records throughout the day while you dig for treasures in the stacks.
Monroe County is offering FREE COVID rapid antigen testing 7 days a week, no proof of insurance required, just a valid photo ID! Walk-ins are welcome! Most of the time, you'll be in and out within five minutes, and positive test results receive a phone call within an hour. Visit https://www.monroecounty.gov/health-covid-19-testing to find a testing site near you.
TURN UP FOR COMMUNITY RADIO - literally! Help WAYO's voice go farther in our community! The FCC is considering a proposal called "Simple 250" which would allow low-power FM stations like WAYO to apply for a power increase up to 250 watts (from 100 watts).
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.
