Kudos to everyone that made our
winter fundraiser so successful. Special thanks goes out to
Campbell and Michael of the WWPT staff for coordinating the
event; Justin and Alex for their great work learning about and
broadcasting with our new television equipment; Jim Honeycutt
for the yeoman's work with the sound; all the DJs; 1974 and
Julia Kempner for tremendous sets of live music; and especially
everyone that called to support the station. If you'd still like
to donate, you can send a check made out to:

Drury Award Update
The 2013/14 Drury Awards took
place on Saturday, May 3rd. We're proud to announce that WWPT
had three programs that earned top honors as the best shows in
their categories. Arin Meyer and Hannah Foley (pictured left) received the "Best
Newscast" award for Good Morning Staples on WWPT –
Homecoming Edition. Justin Gallanty had the nation's
outstanding "Public Affairs Program" with We Are All Human.
And Jim Honeycutt’s Audio Class and David Roth’s Theater Class
took both first and second place nationally in the "Best Radio Drama - Adaptation"
category for It’s a Wonderful Life.
Wondering what you heard on our overnight player? There are a few ways to find out. The computer that is playing the songs puts a "time stamp" on the last time each was played. If you email zeeto (email link) with the date and time that you heard the song (as long as it is within a week) we should be able to figure it out. (A little info on the song is always helpful).
You can also use the SHAZAM app on
your smartphone. We'd love to hear your Shazam/WWPT story if
you've got one!
