WYCE | Michigan Music Marathon 2020

posted by Jess Martin on 08/03/2020

Listener-supported 88.1fm WYCE in Grand Rapids, MI will be holding a fund drive for our nonprofit radio station on August 13 -14. This fund drive will be A World of Michigan Music featuring only Michigan artists for 36 hours with info on local restaurants, venues, and area nonprofits throughout. GRTV will also be showing WYCE throwback performances over the years via Comcast channel 24 and Twitch. Schedules posted soon.

We want to hear your memories! You can send them over via cellphone video, email, audio, or maybe a throwback picture from over the past 30 years WYCE has been a part of the West Michigan community. What Michigan band/artist did you discover on WYCE? What’s your favorite Jammies memory or WYCE in-studio session? Why is it important to support volunteer powered radio in West Michigan? Email : wyceradio@gmail.com or jess@grcmc.org

As we all know this has been a very unique and weird year for musicians, venues, restaurants, and local nonprofits that rely on the community for support. WYCE typically holds a Spring Fund Drive but due to the Covid-19 crisis we were unable to raise the amount of funds we would typically receive to fund our volunteer powered radio station. This upcoming fund drive is crucial to our operations and we need your help. Our goal is $36,000 in 36 hours.

During this fund drive we encourage you to become a “sustaining donor” which starts at $10 per month and will automatically renew annually. The first 50 new sustainers will receive a limited edition WYCE Michigan Music Marathon screen-print. All new sustainers will be put into a drawing for “Grand Prizes”. We are still finalizing items but here are a few...
· Personalized Message on Wealthy Theatre marquee
· Private Film Screening for 10 people at Wealthy Theatre. Film for Wealthy Theatre is subject to licensing availability.
· Private “social distanced backyard show” with a local band/musician (confirming artists)
· Victrola Wood Record/CD/Bluetooth Player w/ Radio and vinyl to digital + a stack of new vinyl

As a WYCE sustainer you will receive a monthly email beginning September 2020 with opportunities to win WYCE swag, gift cards, tickets for shows, vinyl, downloads, and updates on what’s happening at WYCE and Grand Rapids Community Media Center.
Become a sustaining donor and continuously power listener-supported radio in West Michigan! www.wyce.org
