My son went to CWRU and I discovered your station on my visits to Cleveland. Now, if I’m home, I listen online Monday nights (and every now and then some other times). Missed your live shows terribly during the pandemic shutdown.

Awesome playlists created with your great DJ’s , long live alternative radio!!!
WCSB is one of a kind, there are not.many college radio stations that does what they want like you guys. I love nearly all the djs, shows, and I can never get enough of church of the subgenius. Keep doing your thing, because no one does it like WCSB!
Heartbeat in the Brain and the Brewing Luminous are my faves????
I Love the Skavoovie Sounds of Monster Boogie
I LOVE WCSB for its incredible diversity in sounds and the dedication of its many show hosts to the music they love! Free format rules and Cleveland is one lucky city to have not one, but three free format college stations within a 10 or so mile radius!

I love Skid Row! Thanks for the great shows!
Because college radio in Cleveland is some of the best in the nation. Much love from a WRUW programmer!

Thank You WCSB Nation
I’ve been listening for over 30 years and discovered many different styles of music through WCSB. Cleveland is very fortunate to have a radio station like this available to us. Thanks.
I have many favorite shows
but Skid Row and the Folk Rotation are definitely two. Speaking of two – I doubled my donation in honor of your goal
Best Cleveland Cultural Institution
This donation is in honor of Potsy, a long time caller and contributor to WCSB talk shows. He was incredibly witty and had the gift of gab. He is now driving that big ice cream truck in the sky.
If you are not listening to Ray Carr and Brother Love, you need to evaluate your life choices
I wanted to give $178.60 (’cause it’s 89.3 times two/I missed last year/etc.), but it made me round up to $179. you guys owe me forty cents. seriously, though, you guys are dope. If WCSB was a person, I’d want to buy it a beer.
s/o to the entire Friday line-up; brother love, radio nomad, and everyone else too! long live WCSB!
