Today, March 22, 2013, is the final day for WYCE’s Spring Fund Drive. Donations to the station support our Michigan music community, allowing WYCE to play a huge variety of interesting, challenging and eclectic music.  

People who know and love the station believe that the local music scene in Grand Rapids just wouldn’t be the same without WYCE. The station is considered a lot more than just an on-air presence in West Michigan, supporting local music by hosting local musicians at the station, promoting bands and individuals through professionally produced videos like Songs from the Second Floor.

WYCE also puts on the regional music award extravaganza known as The Jammies, which annually honors the best of the best of local musicians. Up and coming local band The Soil and The Sun won the big award at the Jammies, this year. You can watch their set here, recorded live by GRTV. 

Programmers and listeners support local music by volunteering their time and talents and by donating financially to the nonprofit station. You can listen online to WYCE 88.1 FM anytime, and you can donate now by clicking here.
