Before we get to our listings, a first a quick thank you to those who pledged during WBAI’s Summer Fund Drive. We’re still looking for sustaining members to support the station with a monthly pledge as ‘BAI Buddies or anyone who can chip in a one-time donation. Subscribing as a sustaining member with a recurring small monthly pledge is particularly helpful. It’s quick and easy and you can stop payments at any time. Details are at WBAI’s pledge page.
