It's never too late to become an official 'OZillian and WWOZ member, but our Spring 2013 pledge party has wrapped up. It was a wonderful 11 days here at the station, and the membership staff (Crystal Gross, Molly Cobb, Lauren Del Rio, and Lindsey Darnell) extends thanks to the many volunteers, musicians, food donors, photographers, and 'OZ staff members who made it happen. This station really does rely on every one of you to continue sharing this fantastically unique programming that you won't find anywhere else. So thank you from the bottom of our syncopated hearts!
