One of Frontman Club families stepped forward with a very generous gift to renovate our main air studio. In making the gift, they told us they were motivated by WTMD's ability to impact the community and each listeners life. They also told us one key issue in their decision to make this transformational gift to WTMD is the level of community support WTMD receives from its listeners.
I hope you will take this opportunity to make a year end gift to WTMD today. Your gift, in any amount, is pooled with other gifts and enables the station to bring you more music, interviews and programming everyday. Not only is your gift important individually, but as a community, all of your support demonstrates how important WTMD is to our community.
You've already to heard the biggest benefit of the new studio: More in-studio bands! Our friends at Ziger/Snead Architects reconfigured the space so we could have more space to bring bands in quickly and with fewer technical obstacles. We'd also like to thank Ed Bukont of E2 Technical Services for helping put the place together and also to Vince Fiola of Studio Technology for building the new furniture.
But the biggest thanks goes to Ryan Glaeser, AKA Bug, for leading this project and putting hundreds of hours putting all together. Not only is Bug WTMD's Jam Band Expert, but he's pretty handy with drills, hammers, wiring diagrams and pulling cables all around the station.
So here are the before and after pictures. Thanks again, your involvement with WTMD helped make this happen!
