WYCE’s 10th Annual CD & Record sale takes place Saturday, September 9, 2017 at the Eastown Streetfair. All summer long the station calls for listener donations of used collections that are resold for $1 each. No matter the value, condition, or genre – it is a little goldmine of music. Folks will show up & patiently wait for us to set up the display before they get first dibs on a used Beatles White Album or Kenny G cassette.

The Eastown Street Fair as a community bonding experience. Who doesn’t love music in some shape or form? Our On-Air programming Volunteers staff the booth and provide tasteful advice to those looking for fresh sounds. We have fantastic volunteer support for this event each year and the station couldn’t pull this off without each one of them.

All of the funds raised go directly back to your Community Radio Station in West Michigan 88.1FM WYCE. We put them towards things like equipment replacements and upgrades to basic things like the electric bill.

This year marks 30 for our listener sponsored radio station. It’s historic that Grand Rapids values what we do each day to continue to give it life this long and beyond! Compared to the down stroke commercial stations are facing, we’re doing pretty great. Our mission is to continue that symbiotic relationship with our listeners. We provide musical exploration and a platform for local musicians. WYCE serves the community’s thirst for local content and independent music.

You can get involved by volunteering and joining our Outreach Team. Email our Volunteer Coordinator [email protected] with days of availability and you’ll be the first to know about events where you can represent the station as a volunteer power!

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.
