WCPE Starts Fall Festival 2011
TheClassicalStation.org Fund Drive Begins with Open House
WAKE FOREST, N.C. (October 12, 2011) — WCPE’s General Manager Deborah Proctor announces the start of Fall Festival 2011 with Open House on Saturday, October 15, 2011, 2-4 p.m. ET. Visit our studios and transmitter at 1928 Chalk Rd., Wake Forest, NC 27587, and tell us your thoughts about Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day. You can have your messaged recorded and perhaps hear it on air.
“All of us hope you can be with us and help us off to a good start,” offers Proctor. The Fall Festival is your time to show your support of WCPE. Our funding comes from many individual tax-deductible gifts, thus every donation counts. You keep WCPE on the air 24 hours a day around the world.
Membership drives are important. It takes time for our newest listeners to understand how listener-supported community radio operates. First-time listeners think “Public Radio, don’t I already pay taxes for it?” This is when we educate people about their critical role in support of WCPE.
The Open House will be an opportunity to tour our facilities to see how your donation is put to work. Meet the announcers, tour our transmitter building and enjoy fellowship with our staff and volunteers. Light refreshments and door prizes round out the festivities.
“This is WCPE’s most important Open House ever,” continues Proctor. “You’re invited to be a part of it”!
WCPE’s 24/7 live broadcast of Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day can be accessed around the globe in several ways; on-line streaming in multiple formats, including IPv6, small dish home satellite reception, local cable television systems and traditional radio broadcasting. A complete list of the ways WCPE is available with instructions for cable and satellite reception can be found at:http://theclassicalstation.org/listen.shtml .
Since 1978 WCPE 89.7 FM has been dedicated to excellence in Great Classical Music broadcasting. WCPE is one of the first community-supported stations to stream on the Internet. The programming is available on our own satellite channel and on multiple Internet streams, including IPv6. WCPE receives no tax-derived support, rather depends on tax-deductible support through on-air fundraising and mail-out campaigns. More information can be found at www.TheClassicalStation.org or by calling 919-556-5178.
