WESU Fundraising Dinner, Wednesday, December 7th, 6:00 PM!

The two most commonly asked questions we get here at WESU Middletown, 88.1 FM are:

“How can I support free form, community radio?”


“What’s for dinner?”

Fear not, our dearest listeners, for we’ve finally got a singular answer for both questions!  La Boca Mexican Restaurant in Middletown, CT is hosting a fundraising dinner for WESU on Wednesday, December 7th at 6:00 PM!

Dinner tickets will be $25 and will net you a delicious buffet of freshly cooked Mexican food while contributing to one of the nation’s oldest continually broadcasting radio stations!

WOOHOO! If you all haven’t noticed already…our new and improved FALL PROGRAM of 2016 is up and broadcasting! We couldn’t be more excited and we hope you all are too! Tune into 88.1fm or to listen to some shows – old and new!

Some highlights of the new program are:

  • The addition of “Rising up with Sonali”! A new and much anticipated daily public affairs program from Pacifica:  This show will enhance the already diverse lineup of daytime Talk radio from NPR, Pacifica, and local, independent sources
  • A Tribute to Jim Mascia, the late cohost of “Living Naturally”.  For 10 years, Jim and Rosemary Masicia hosted this popular locally produced weekly radio show that promoted a holistic lifestyle on WESU.
  • And so many more!

The Fall Program is keeping the eclectic, alternative, funky mix of music and talk radio that we all love about WESU. So TUNE IN!
