Community Radio WRFI | 88.1 FM Ithaca, 91.9 FM Watkins Glen

YOUR DONATION MATCHED WED & THURS, Special Free Pile, Live Music, SOA Watch

There are only three days left in our once-a-year marathon fund drive. And there’s never been a better time to give: All donations to the station on Wednesday (11/14) and Thursday (11/5) will be matched by an anonymous donor!

More than ever, local and independent media must be protected. Working together, we can continue to amplify local and underrepresented voices, build stronger communities, and ensure there’s a place on the dial where real people and real news matter.

Plus we’ve got some great prizes, premiums (including our first ever fleece hat!) and lots of special programming coming up in the next few days (see below)!
