It's the most wonderful week of the year!
WTJU-91.1FM is proud to announce the return of the WTJU Rock Fundraiser: a week-long radio event dedicated to preserving Charlottesville's only source of independent, free-form rock radio.
Expect to hear music from every nook and cranny of that all-encompassing genre we call Rock, including (but certainly not limited to): new wave, garage rock, soul, post-rock, prog rock, ska, traditional ragas, Moog synthesizers, jangle-pop, outlaw country, doo wop, punk, Merseybeat, and chiptune. Hear tributes to record labels like Thrill Jockey, Jagjaguwar, Merge and Marriage, and shows dedicated to artists like Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Buddy Holly.
Every night of the marathon will feature an on-air performance in our studios. Tune in for live sets and interviews with Borrowed Beams of Light, Andrew Cedermark, Left and Right, Dzian!, Sarah White and The Pearls, Corsair and Invisible Hand.
Saturday night features the return of esteemed WTJU alumni Spot and That Girl, who will be reuniting for their first radio show in many years.
Your financial support is essential to keeping WTJU's diverse, innovative programming on the air. Spread the word, tune in, and pledge!
