Support WNKU During Our Fall Live Drive. Pledge Online or Call 1-855-897-1059.

Jayne Sachs Plays Live Saturday at 11am

This past spring, we tried something a bit different during our fund drive.  We called it the “Live Drive” as we hosted 20 live acts in our newly-updated performance studio over the course of nine days.  It was a huge hit!  We heard from listeners every day telling us how much they enjoyed the live performances.

And so, for our annual fall drive, we’re doing it again.  The fall Live Drive is under way, and we’re asking you to become a Sustaining Member or make a one time gift to help support WNKU.  We have lots of great new thank you gifts like Ring Volume IV - A Cincinnati Keyboard Christmas and the brand new Real Mary Peale T-shirt, some cool contests including a chance to win VIP passes to this year’s Midpoint Music Festival, and of course, we’ll have lots and lots of great live music.
