In the spring a public meeting will be held to discuss funding, your attendance is crucial! Please check back for a date, time and location.

Thanks for supporting WCOM, Your Community Radio Station.

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.

Hickory Tavern Event a Success

The 10 year anniversary and fundraiser at the Hickory Tavern in Carrboro on Thursday, November 6, 2014 was a success. The station raised over $600! We would like to thank all the folks that attended along with WCOM staff members and organizer Art Menius.

We also would like to thank the Carrboro Board of Aldermen for proclaiming November 6 Community Radio Day.

We are planning other events so please check back here for details.

Again, thanks for your participation and for your commitment to keep community radio strong!
