Our dual fundraising efforts on Classical 101 and 89.7 NPR News reached a conclusion Friday late afternoon as we topped our 250,000 goal for the Fall Fundraiser.  Funds go directly to support the programming you hear! We thank the 2,413 contributors who made the on-air drive a success AND all our volunteers who helped throughout the pledge drive. We are humbled by the many positive comments from listeners who contributed over the past nine days. Grand total was $284,591.   Thank you!
