we’re everywhere

from the latest WEFT Board list:

**Pumping the wattage into your cottage!
While WEFT’s signal is not as strong as powerhouses WILL-FM (105kw), WLRW
(50kw), and WHMS (50kw); at 10kw, WEFT has a stronger signal than WPGU
(3kw), WCZQ–Hot 105.5 (3kw), WGKC (2.5kw) and WQQB–B96 (3.8kw). And
we’re almost as strong as one of CU’s big stations, WIXY (13kw). Think
about that next time you’re on-air.


This is a very cool fact that I hadn’t really thought about!!!!

February Special Programming

WEFT is once again participating in the 11th annual Homeless Marathon.

WHAT IS THE HOMELESSNESS MARATHON?
It is a 14 hour radio broadcast featuring the voices and stories of homeless people from around the U.S. The Homelessness Marathon features live call-ins all night long via a national toll-free number. The Homelessness Marathon is available for free to all non-commercial stations.

WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN?
Everywhere.

WHEN?
The broadcast on WEFT will start at 6PM on Wednesday, February 20, 2008. It will end at 8AM on Thursday, February 21, 2008. The Homelessness Marathon will preempt regular programming on WEFT at this time. For more information check

TLC – PSA

The Booby Wall–http://www.boobywall.ca

The Booby Wall is a place for women to celebrate, commemorate, participate and show their breasts some TLC. The booby wall is a virtual, interactive exhibit of breasts put together by Schick Quattro for Women and women in Canada. Why? Because breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women ages 15-40 and because nearly one quarter of all breast cancer occurs in women under the age of 50.

The Booby wall was developed in support of Rethink Breast Cancer Early Detection Initiative to and the TLC (Touch, Look, Check) program. The website has information on TLC breast self exam and it has pictures of hundreds of breasts of women who are showing that they support breast health.

Check out the Booby Wall at http://www.boobywall.ca and remember to Touch, Look and Check for yourself.

Happy New Year

2008 is already in high gear and Raeann is doing the first show of 2008. I’m sure it will be a great show, so tune in to 90.1fm or listen online at weft.org.

So it’s Saturday night and I decided to work on blurbs for WHM9. WEFT’s 9th annual celebration of Women’s History Month in March is coming up way too fast and my personal goal is to get every single show on WEFT to highlight a woman or women in music, specifically during the week of March 1-7, 2008. (This is Jason greenly’s baby and I think he’s wonderful for putting so much effort into special programming for WEFT). I am also avoiding cleaning my kitchen, but y’all don’t need to know that.

Anyway, I’ve been crawling the net, looking for women’s music blogs (there are many) and women’s music radio (Ladyslipper has a 24/7 women’s music station on Live365). I found places where I could get CD’s of old albums like Meg Christian’s “Face the Music” and “I Know You Know.” It is totally inspiring to find this community.

Stay tuned!
