Fall Membership Drive 2015 - Thank you!
It's never too late to become an official 'OZillian and WWOZ member, but our Fall 2015 pledge party is in the books. It was a wonderful 11 days here at the station, and the membership staff 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 groovy hearts!
