News From the Freeform Front

The October Hellraiser Is HERE

Every October, WFMU conducts its Year End fund drive, a.k.a. the October Hellraiser. The Year End fundraiser is very important for us since it gets us over the hump of the winter months – that drab time of year when the weather gets cold, the days get shorter, and funds are low. We have two great T-shirts exclusive to this year’s campaign and goodies from the spring are still available, so raise a little hell – and a little cash for WFMU – this October by pledging your support for freeform radio!
