Hello, hello, hello, WVKR listeners!
Thank you for another great year, we’ve had a lot of fun together. Thank you for coming out to the End of Year Party, we had the best time.
It’s our pleasure to release our annual WVKR ZINE capturing all the best moments! You can view it here. Big thank you to Danielle for putting this together and everyone who submitted, and to everyone who has supported the station this year. Have the best summer!
LONG LIVE INDEPENDENT RADIO!
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!

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:
- Give us a call during your favorite show and we’ll take down your information and send you an invoice.
- Donate with your credit card via Vassar’s online donation form, available here. (Note: we cannot offer premiums if you donate via this method).
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Long live independent radio!

Dear WVKR listeners,
We want to take a moment to recognize the retirement of Bill Eberle, a cherished member of the WVKR community. For more than 30 years, Bill has entertained listeners with his two beloved programs, Radio Showtime (now hosted by Jeremiah Ventry-McGee on Sunday evenings), and Classic Country on Wednesday mornings. While we will miss Bill, we are so grateful for all he has contributed to WVKR, and wish him a very happy retirement. We look forward to coming together to celebrate Bill’s time at the station when it is safe to do so.
