Gainesville, Florida, home of the Gators, is also the home of what was an absolutely wondrous public radio station, WUFT-FM. Wikipedia writes that the station “is known for its eclectic mix of music programming, from Classical and Jazz to Folk, World Music and Blues.” For those of who know and love what it was, this only begins to explain its charm.
Sadly, though, this unique resource has been swept away. What we had is too good to lose. We want it back!
During pledge drives, people speaking in the name of the station often repeat that it is the voice of the membership which determines the programming the station carries. It is our radio station, they claim. It turn out that this is a lie! The management of the station has taken upon itself to change the station’s format without considering the views of the listeners.
Join us! We believe we can take it back. Learn about the issues and see how you can help!
