Ring IV - The Final Installment of the Ring Series of Christmas CDs

We have all kinds of cool yule thank you gifts to choose from when you become a Sustaining Member or make a one-time gift, including Ring IV – A Cincinnati Keyboard Christmas.  This is the final installment of the wildly popular Ring CD series, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Call 1-855-897-1059 or pledge $100.00 online to receive your copy of Ring IV today, or pledge $150 to receive Ring II, III, & IV.

Over the past four years, over $250,000 has been raised for public radio in Greater Cincinnati through the Ring CD project. 

Ring Volumes I and II were each a "Cincinnati Guitar Christmas" and consisted of unique arrangements  of classic Christmas carols along with original recordings as done by some of the area's finest guitar players.  Ring Volume III, became a Cincinnati Keyboard Christmas, and now Ring Volume IV follows in it's path as the  second keyboard album and the final installment in the Ring CD series.

If you own any Christmas albums at all and are a fan of WNKU, then you simply must own Ring Volume IV.   You can't find it any store.  You can't order it online.  You can only get it by supporting public radio in Greater Cincinnati.

Make a pledge of $100.00 to receive your copy of Ring IV, or pledge just $50 more and receive Ring II, III, and IV.

This CD is truly unique in that it features all musicians from the Ohio River Valley region.  These are the musicians you go out to see on a Friday night.  You may even know a few of them.  This is truly a special collection for that reason alone, but best of all, the music is simply incredible.  Ring Volume IV will undoubtedly be one of your absolute favorite Christmas collections.

Show your support of WNKU with a $100 pledge, and we'll send you Ring IV.  Make a pledge of $150, and we'll send you Ring II, III, and IV.
