What does your membership mean to WYEP?
WYEP is an independent public radio station. Our financial health is largely dependent on the community, whether through support from individual memberships or through corporate underwriting from local businesses. WYEP Members, people just like you, provide close to 60% of WYEP's operating budget. Become a new member or renew your membership today and be a part of WYEP's future.
As a commercial free radio station, WYEP depends on our members, underwriting and grants to allow us to bring you the eclectic mix of muic, programs and specialty shows that make you tune to 91.3fm in the first place. In order for us to continune to play a diverse selection of music both on air and streamed live from the web, live performances and interviews from national acts, and events like our local music Third Thursdays, we ask you, the listener to help us by pledging your financial support to the station.
As a WYEP Member, you're eligible to attend special Members Only events like concerts, movies and plays. Members at $40/year and higher will receive the Summer in the City Guide and the Year in Review–a look back at the top musical releases as heard on WYEP. Members at $240 and above also receive special invitations to buy tickets to CD Live! concerts before the general public.
Give an additional gift
Giving an additional gift over and above your annual membership is a great way to show your loyal support and further strengthen the station where the music matters. A gift of $10 or $20 over your annual membership goes a long way. For additional gifts of $35 or more, you may select the latest Live & Direct CD as a special thank you gift. Give an additional gift
Installments on your debit/credit card are processed on the first business day of each month. If you're receiving reminders in the mail to send your monthly check, we mail those out during the last week of each month.
Acknowledgement of Membership/Member Card/Premiums
Your thank you letter, including your WYEP sticker will be mailed out within the first two weeks after your first payment. Premiums may take up to 4–6 weeks to arrive. Thank you gifts are "ok-ed" by the database after Membership payment is received.
We try our best to send all premiums, especially the CD of the Week, much sooner but we have to depend on our Volunteers' schedules, not to mention delivery of CDs etc so times may vary. If you need a premium in a hurry, or you haven't received your selected gift within these time frames, please email members at wyep dot org or call us at 412.381.9131.
