Farewell from Ray of Car Talk

On September 30th, 2017, WYSU aired Car Talk for the final time. A staple of WYSU's schedule for decades, Car Talk enjoyed success unlike any other public radio program both on WYSU and stations around the country.

Car Talk host, Ray Magliozzi, bids a very fond farewell to the program's loyal listeners:

WYSU Bus Heads to Blossom July 22

The WYSU bus is more than half full of people taking the annual trip to Blossom Music Festival -- this year on Saturday, July 22, when The Cleveland Orchestra performs “Dvorak’s New World” featuring Symphony No. 9.

From Barbara Krauss -- A Favorite Recipe from the Sicily Tour

On one sunny day of our tour, the WYSU travelers were invited to share an afternoon meal on a huge rustic estate called Casa Bianca, located in a fertile and picturesque part of Sicily. Casa Bianca is owned and run by a Sicilian contessa. The Contessa graciously prepared a fabulous feast for us, showcasing many delectable items grown on her own land. The meal was magnificent!

Thanks to All of Our Members!

Thanks so much to the 943 people who pledged during our just completed listener-friendly spring membership drive. 93 of you are new members! With your help we raised $129,688 for local public radio. We couldn’t have done this without out our great and talented professional and student staff, as well as our generous volunteers, sponsors, and food vendors.

Thanks so much for your support of 88.5 WYSU-FM!

WYSU Spring Drive aims for 1100 Pledges

The on-air portion of our drive is more than half over! We are hoping to get 1100 pledges between now and Saturday, April 15 at noon.  We are calling it our “38-Hour Campaign” because that is the number of hours we are actively fundraising on the air.


At WYSU, we do this twice a year, because individual listener support is and always has been important! 

Threat to CPB Funding in the News Again

It's interesting, and somewhat ironic, that 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Public Broadcasting Act and the creation of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In his remarks at the time, President Lyndon B. Johnson said, "It announces to the world that our nation wants more than just material wealth; our nation wants more than a 'chicken in every pot.' We in America have an appetite for excellence, too. While we work every day to produce new goods and to create new wealth, we want most of all to enrich man's spirit. That is the purpose of this act."
