ANNUAL SENIOR / STUDENT MEMBER
If you’re in school or over 65, this is the most economical way to join. Your support is truly appreciated.
Membership funds are one of the only ways that our bills get paid and our equipment gets maintained. We don’t receive any free government money, and we don’t have any big foundation grants or super-rich benefactors. We’d be thrilled if we did… but the truth is that it’s just all of us regular people, together, supporting Black Sheep Radio. If our programming entertains and enlightens you, and you agree that our mission is important, join us!
We’re entirely run by good-hearted community volunteers; there’s no paid staff to keep on top of the big job of monthly membership maintenance, so consequently our memberships run through the end of each calendar year — it’s so much simpler to keep track of things that way. If you’re joining in September or later, though, we’ll roll your membership over into the next year as a bonus. Please contact us with any questions you might have.
And if you’ve got a business or upcoming event that you want to get word out about, take a look at how underwriting can help.
WOOL POWER UPGRADE FUND
You’re probably aware that WOOL-FM started as a low-power broadcaster. For more than 30 years, no community group in the northeast was awarded a Class A broadcast license. WOOL is a rare thing! It took years to work its way through the FCC’s system, but WOOL was awarded the power upgrade on the merit of our service. Then, hard-won license in hand, we set out to find the funds to follow through. We found it, but there’s a catch. The money is a loan. It needs to be paid back. We’ve created an Upgrade Fund because together, we’re mighty. You can automatically put a monthly amount on your credit card that goes specifically toward WOOL’s upgrade expenses. (For these recurring payments, a free Paypal account is required.) Your support makes Black Sheep Radio possible. We’re grateful for you! More info about the upgrade.
