Passing the Hat

In the words of Billy Fuccillo, WAMC's Katrina fundraiser yesterday was HuuuuuuuuGE!
Their day-long radiothon raked in over $500,000 , which is an amazing testament to the station's wide reaching influence and generous (not to mention deep pocketed) supporters. They were so busy yesterday, they often dispensed with reading comments from contributors, a long-standing fund drive tradition ---and if you were listening at about 4pm, or watching on Time Warner channel 3, you were treated to Alan joining Jay Ungar and Molly Mason for a spirited version of Woody Guthrie's When That Great Ship Went Down. Nice work.
