Hickory Tavern Fundraiser

Please join WCOM hosts at the Hickory Tavern 370-110 East Main Street in Carrboro on Thursday November 6th between 5PM and 10PM for a 10 year celebration and fundraiser.

10% of your bill will go to the station when you drop your receipt in the collection box at the entrance before you leave.

Proceeds from the event will help keep our all volunteer radio station strong.

WCOM thanks the Hickory Tavern for allowing us to use their facility for our celebration and fundraiser.

UnderCurrents Underwriting

About a year ago WCOM entered into an agreement with Native Voice One to provide the station with music when no programming is scheduled. We have received all positive feedback about the service and their selection of music.

Begining in the fall, WCOM will have to pay for the service and needs to raise funds to cover the subscription cost. Although we have not received a final invoice, we estimate that it will cost WCOM about $800 per year.

A long time friend of WCOM has agreed to match any donation made to keep UnderCurrents on the station.

If you like UnderCurrents and would like it to continue on the station, please consider a donation. If the donation is made via PayPal, please put UnderCurrents in the comment section.

Thanks for your support which helps keep this gem of the community on the air!
