A huge thanks to everyone who donated or attended this past Friday and Saturday to WMPG’s “Production Room Studio Re-Do” pledge drive and CD/Record & BBQ. With all the donations now added up we raised over $6200. Thanks especially to all the WMPG volunteers who made it all possible. The DJ’s themselves have already donated more than $10,000 to this project and with grant money received from the Maine Association of Broadcasters and now money raised this past week we are over the $28,000 mark and making our way to the $64,000 needed to complete our “Production Room Studio Re-Do”.
