    WVKR’s annual pledge drive is in full gear!!!  Once a year we ask you, our listeners, for your support.  The station could not survive without listener support — not by a long shot!  So please, if you want to keep independent radio alive, make a pledge.  It can be for whatever amount you can afford.  Every dollar counts.

    There are several ways to pledge.  You could:

    • Call 845.437.7178 and speak to one of our volunteers.
    • Download our pledge form here [pdf], fill it out, and send it to 124 Raymond Ave, Box 726, Poughkeepsie NY, 12603.
    • If you wish to decline premiums (and claim your entire pledge as tax deductible), donate online here.

    And Don’t Forget!

    You can receive premiums for pledges, including T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Pot Holders, Compact Mirrors, and Bumper Stickers.   All pledge premiums feature new designs.

    So call now, and keep WVKR blasting the tunes!

    OMG our new batch of merchandise is here.  To whet yr interest, check our new design for shirts, tanks, crew neck sweatshirts, and totes:

    Check out our bumper sticker:

    Also, be prepared for VKR compact mirrors and a new round of potholders.  Am I forgetting anything?  Probably, cause WVKR hooks you up with the goods.  Less than a week till pledge drive, during which you can pledge to keep our station running, get sweet merch, and receive tax deductions ALL AT ONCE.

    Remember, if merchandise isn’t your thing, you can pledge online anytime by clicking ‘DONATE’ at the top of this page (and get a 100% tax deduction on your donation).

    Also!  Expect real life merch photos soon.  (Pics or it didn’t happen.)

    The Last Days of Summer & Pledge Drive ‘Oh Ten

    August 27th, 2010

    We’re cruising through Summer here at WVKR, spending long days in the studio with AC cranked to 11.  But there’s only 18 days left until our Fall programming kicks in, and you know that means it’s a very exciting time of year…  The Pledge Drive — our annual plea to Radio-land to keep our station up and running — is September 7-13.  Each year we interrupt our seamless, ad-free programming for one week to ask our listeners to give whatever they can, so we can stay afloat.

    Oh, and keep your eyes peeled here at WVKR.org for our new line of merchandise that we’ll offer as premiums for your pledges.  (WVKR=Style.)
