Together we're celebrating 30 years of continued support for listener-sponsored and volunteer powered community radio!

This fall WYCE is focused on Thank You gifts that are timeless in order to commemorate 30 years and beyond of community funded radio.

We've continued opportunities to reserve air-time for personal days, birthdays and anniversaries. At the same level you may dedicate that amount of time to a non-profit to bring attention and awareness in the community, putting your donation to work. Exclusive opportunities and album of the month club memberships are available in return for your investment. The option to give a small amount monthly is still open with many hands making light work. Our Matching Funds pool for this fall has been locked and loaded up to encourage folks to take the leap from listener to listener-sponsor. 

“WYCE has been around 30 years and it’s certainly looking like with the support of this community it will continue for 30+ more! Being able to be supported by the community of our listeners and the businesses and organizations of West Michigan we are able to continue playing “A World of Music” including Jazz, Rock, Blues, World Beat and everything in between," said Quinn Mathews, WYCE Station Manager. "No corporation is “telling us” what to play. The fact that we are funded by YOU, the community, we play what YOU want to hear! We certainly thank you for that, we thank you for helping educate our community about music that doesn’t normally receive radio play in 2017.”

Feel good about the piece of the station that belongs to you with your donation to the 30th annual Fall Fund Drive today! Call 616-742-9923 or online at
