the mailing i got was pretty alarmist, are they actually in dire straits?

I didn't read the mailing yet.

They're objectively always in dire straits. I don't believe this compares to the early-mid '90s though.

But y'know, "JM in the AM" supplied about a third of their donors...

I'm at a low ebb in listening hours per week, but I'll hang in there with my current swag level. Can't add anything to it, though.

I saw that WFMU documentary (believe it's still streaming on Amazon for Prime members), and the majority of that film focused on how desperate they were to raise money. They just barely met their goals in that film by the end (spoilers). I can only imagine it gets a little harder every year.

I wonder how much Scharpling brought in...probably a lot.

wfmu thing i've been enjoying lately is irwin chusid playing these old Tom Wilson (producer of dylan, simon, sun ra, zappa, VU, etc) broadcasts from the 60s. definitely worth donating for those alone!

donated when this thread went up, grateful for it. in the event that anybody who wasn't already gonna help opens this thread...seriously WFMU is a treasure. listening via the app is such a reliable source of pleasure, every single day, anywhere - this station deserves support, and if you don't already listen, give it a try - just go digging in the archived broadcasts and you'll see there's so much, really such a great thing in the world

ok that's my pitch

and let me rescind my previous post... as station mgr Ken has said these last 10 days, they either make the goal or pare down stuff to stay on the air; this is a survival crisis.

That's a lot for the last 16 hours, but if everyone raises/overpays their pledge by 5-20% they get there...

There are 2 people in the "in memoriam" animation I can't identify -- front row next to Abe V., and front row between Hag and Fidel.
