What Radio is Meant to be!

Support WAIF

Since its inception in 1975 WAIF-FM has been a non-commercial radio station and as such, receives no revenue from advertising.

Which of course means there are no commercials aired on WAIF and we believe this is a GOOD thing!

WAIF also does not receive regular grants nor funding from tax-dollars.

The one source for nearly 100% of the financial support for this radio station – comes from its listeners and underwriters. And the great thing about THAT is that it means the programming on WAIF is beholden to no one – EXCEPT it’s listeners!

We hope that YOU will become a member and supporter of WAIF-FM!

When a listener makes a contribution or underwrites a program, that’s direct support not only for the ideas or entertainment of that program, but also for the entire concept of the multifaceted programming provided by this radio station. And vitally important is the idea that this programming does not have an outlet in any other area of the broadcast spectrum or in print.


In the weeks to follow, this space will provide a number of avenues to support the station financially. There will also be other ways you can support, from making major contributions, helping around the station or perhaps donating supplies or other items.

But you CAN support the station now!
