Donate to WCBN!

WCBN’s annual fundraiser is running until February 19. Your support during these ten days puts new music on the shelf and fixes broken turntables; we need you for our day to day. We ask now that you “resubscribe” to the freeform radio that you love, and support the continued education and cultural enrichment of students at the University of Michigan.

Give us a call or donate online, and keep listening.

Face the Music

Face the Music 1.31.13
This broadcast was conceived as a celebration of Jewish music. Part of the methodology involved assembling recordings that would have bothered Joe Goebbels: George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Irving Berlin, Benny Goodman,Artie Shaw, even a team of harmonizing Chassids! Also a nice opportunity to air lots of Ziggy Elman.
