WDBX Spring Membership Drive

Six months ago, WDBX was facing the real possibility of closing its doors. With your help, WDBX raised over $30,000 to save the station! Now, it's time to ensure that your hard work isn't wasted-- support WDBX's ongoing future with a donation during our Spring Membership Drive.

WDBX benefits Southern Illinois by holding open a public space on the airwaves-- much in the same way that a park functions as an open public area for the community to gather, WDBX enables our community to join together in a unique radio space.

WDBX is one of just THREE community radio stations in all of Illinois-- a jewel in the Southern Illinois region. Your donations support the diversity of media in our listening area, as well as the efforts of more than 100 on-air volunteers. All donations are tax-deductible.
To donate you may use our GoFundMe page or via PayPal. Donations are also accepted by phone, at 618-457-3691, or by mail to 224 N. Washington St. in Carbondale. Thank you!

Rising Tide

As we've been participating in the My2024 online conversation, we notice a lot of intersectional coalition building in many contributions.  As we look to a future where we hope to significantly reduce homophobia and other prejudices, we see other impending concerns that certainly affect us all.  And we have to wonder: will these challenges bring us together or break us apart?  

We cling to hope like a drowning person clings to anything that floats that all our lessons learned in advocating for human rights and human diversity will be useful in meeting the challenges that loom, as literal and figurative stormclouds, on the all-too-near horizon
