From the Backstage: Waves of Support

Today, Baton Rouge Community Radio continues to broadcast unique and relevant programming on the airwaves in our city, but we wouldn’t be able to do this without our volunteers and your continued support. As you are deciding where to make your end of the year tax deductible donations, we want you to know that your donation is needed to sustain our station’s operations in 2015.

Your support means…we can feature diverse, locally produced programming. Our talk programming informs listeners on important community issues including Metro Council votes, candidates for local office, and special events. Our music shows feature local musicians and a variety of genres including jazz, blues, Cajun, zydeco, and hip hop. We have new shows coming on the air soon that will highlight local art events on Art Scouts, and put poetry on the radio with Poiesis.

Your support means…we can amplify what is best about Baton Rouge. Whether through our shows or Public Service Announcements, we serve as a microphone to broadcast the work and messages of local non-profits and individuals who are bringing positive changes to our city.

Your support means…we can bring fresh perspectives to the local airwaves. We continue to be the only local radio outlet for programming such as Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman, This Way Out: The International Lesbian and Gay Radio Magazine, and Alternative Radio.

WHYR needs your support to keep doing this work in 2015. Please make your fully tax deductible donation before the end of the year. WHYR is an all-volunteer project of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Baton Rouge Progressive Network. As always, we greatly appreciate your support!

You can donate by mailing a check to WHYR, 1623 Main Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70802 or by donating online at


Yours in Community Radio,
