We Have A New Website Look!

Dearest WVKR Family,

After over 13 years of having the same website look, Exec decided it was time for a change–welcome to the new and improved! Everything is in the same place as it was before, just with updated graphics.

We really hope you enjoy this new theme! Reach out to Casey at with any questions/concerns or if you need any help navigating the new site.

Happy Holidays!

Dear listeners,

Thank you so much for supporting us this fall semester. Starting December 12, 2021 we will be moving into our winter schedule. Most students will also be on break during this time. Because of this, please be patient in regards to Pledge Drive Premium deliveries and responses to email messages at this time. Thank you for keeping independent radio alive!

Happy Holidays,

Chloe Richards

WVKR General Manager 2021-2022


Hello WVKR listeners!


We are once again gearing up for our favorite part of the year: our annual Pledge Drive! Pledge Drive is your opportunity to give back to WVKR and help keep independent radio alive. Formally, Pledge Drive will take place from Tuesday, September 7 to Monday, September 13. However, we welcome pledges outside of this week-long window as well!


This year, there are three ways to make a pledge:

  1. Give us a call during your favorite show and we’ll take down your information and send you an invoice. 
  2. Donate with your credit card via Vassar’s online donation form, available here. (Note: we cannot offer premiums if you donate via this method).
  3. Download and print a PDF pledge form (linked on the side). Fill out the form, and mail it to the the following address with your check or credit card information enclosed: WVKR Gifts 161 College Avenue, Box 725 Poughkeepsie, NY 12603


Here are the premiums we are offering this year:

$1.00 and up: Sticker

$25.00 and up: T-shirt (sizes S-XXL)

$50.00 and up: Tote bag

$100.00 and up: Tote bag, t-shirt, sticker, bonus premium from years past


Please know we appreciate each and every one of our listeners, and that no pledge is too small. As always, we are happy to offer premiums, but know that if you elect not to receive a premium, 100% of your pledge will go to WVKR.


If you choose to donate without receiving premiums, then your entire donation is tax-deductible. If you choose premiums then only the surplus of your pledge is tax-deductible.


Thank you for your continued support of this very special station. We are so grateful to all of our listeners and look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at Long live independent radio!


With love,

Chloe Richards
