WMPG Spring Begathon March 16 to 22 – RADIO STRONG!

WMPG Fans! It’s getting to be that time again… Spring is teasing with bright sunlight and breezes that don’t freeze us. And WMPG is asking for your support, as we do twice each year.

Of course, many folks donate throughout the year, and that’s SO appreciated! And during our Begathons, we take the time to ask every listener to also become a supporter. Community Radio is the broadcast platform that belongs to you…to all of us! Your neighbors, co-workers, family and friends are the DJs and producers of the great programs you enjoy. And those same folks are the ones who join you in giving a financial gift to keep WMPG strong…RADIO STRONG!
