We are still unable to process credit cards due to the contracts being stuck in the college's red tape. We were hoping to have everything up and running for #GivingTuesday, but this is not the case.

Now more than ever, we need you to send a check!

We heard from many of you who were very concerned that we had to delay our Fall Drive by two entire months. We asked you to be patient, and we just can't afford to wait any longer for this to be resolved.

Now we have to get down to the business of making up for the skipped Fall Drive. During the month of December, we will be having our combined Fall Drive and Year End campaigns using the same Quiet Drive method that you told us you liked so much. Without credit cards this might seem a daunting task, but I have every confidence in our listeners to stand up for classical music.

You can use the blue buttons to fill out a pledge and request a return envelope but the quickest, lowest-cost method would be to send your checks directly to us at:

PO Box 22342
Baltimore MD 21203-4342

Not only do we offer world-class programming 24/7, we bring you the very best of specialty programs like year round opera, local performances like the BSO Encore Series, special Music in Maryland presentations and the upcoming Beethoven 1808 Concert. WBJC has proudly been your oasis of calm during this tumultuous year and your connection to the local performing arts community.

Don't forget, the Metropolitan Opera Radio Season begins this Saturday, and holiday programming will begin soon! With your help, December is set to be a great month at WBJC!

Be well,

Jonathan Palevsky
Interim General Manager, WBJC
