Carrboro Comes Through!

On April 21, 2015, WCOM made a presentation to the joint budgeting committee of Carrboro and Chapel Hill asking for financial support from the two towns. As a result Carrboro has committed $500 to the station!

We thank the Aldermen and Citizens of Carrboro for the generous support.

WCOM Bids Farewell to Long Time Host

For over 10 years, WCOM listeners have been entertained by a unique mix of Jazz and Standards on Saturdays at noon.

Fred Wasser's Breathing Room premiered on November 20, 2004, Fred's relaxed, casual and informative style made his show a very popular weekly feature on WCOM.

Fred is leaving the area to pursue an opportunity to produce programs for Nevada Public Radio KNPR in Las Vegas, he will be missed. His last show is May 16, 2015.

Ann Parrent host of "This is Easy" will be moving her show to Saturday at noon.

Please join us in wishing Fred the best as he begins his new opportunity.

UnderCurrents Renewed

A big thank you to a "long time supporter of WCOM" for underwriting UnderCurrents. UnderCurrents plays on WCOM when there is no scheduled host. The service is provided to us by Native Voice 1. About a year ago we started airing the UnderCurrents stream. We decided to renew our one year paid agreement based on the overwhelming positive response we have received from listeners.

On behalf of our long time supporter, enjoy UnderCurrents and thanks to all for supporting your community radio station.

Indy Week's Best of the Triangle

For the second year in a row, WCOM 103.5 was a Finalist in Indy Week's Best of the Triangle, Non-Profit Radio Station category.

Nice testimonial, too: "WCOM radio does for radio what the farm-to-table movement did for food. Local, organic radio: owned, managed and created by locals FOR locals. Creative nutrition for the WHOLE Triangle. Something for everyone." 

Thanks to everyone who voted for WCOM!
