WKCR wants YOU to help save independent radio
Written by Bwog Staff
The New York Times‘ City Room has a profile on the famous Dizzy Gillespie Chair and WKCR’s current fundraising efforts. It seems that WKCR is poor–more so than most Columbia organizations, apparently–and if you want the marathon fundraising broadcast to stop, send cash.
An unrelated bizarre Columbia tidbit, artist/druggie/photographer/hipster Dash Snow (punk polaroids of youth culture, grunge art) is the grandson of Robert Thurman (Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies, B&W‘s October Conversation), which means Dash Snow is also related to Uma Thurman!
