Dear friends of WHUP,
It’s time once again for our week-long on-air Begathon fundraiser, which will run from Sunday, October 8 through Saturday, October 14. We hope that you feel inspired to make a donation to the cause by going to our website, clicking on our contributions link and showing us that you care about community radio in the Triangle and the work we do. We promise not to mine your data or share it with anyone else! You can also mail us an old-school check to WHUP, 117 W. King St, Hillsborough NC 27278. Modest donations are just as important as larger ones, and we appreciate whatever you can manage.
You probably know that we spend much of our time and energy spotlighting good work being accomplished by so many individuals and organizations in the area – as we approach our second birthday, we’ve featured extended interviews and live sessions with more than 400 folks representing non-profits, local businesses, government and the creative scene. Another 400+ local, regional and national touring musicians have played live in our studio. Collectively that’s more than any other radio station in the Southeast and perhaps beyond! Your support is essential to help us continue those efforts. Thanks in advance for your continued
During Begathon week you can hear special programming that will include great guests, musical themes and special shows, many of which will be announced in advance on our Facebook and Instagram pages – connect with us on social media if you haven’t already, or just tune in any time to hear some great programming!
What you won’t hear during Begathon week are interrupted or pre-empted shows peppered with endless appeals and guilt trips, just the high-quality, solid music and conversation you’ve come to expect from WHUP. Thanks in advance for your generous support!
