What is a Radiothon?

Radiothon is WCSB's annual fundraising week. Our Radiothon Show is Saturday November 10th, 9-11am. WCSB is a nonprofit, noncommercial, live, local terrestrial radio station (89.3fm Cleveland) that also streams on the web at wcsb.org. 100% of our operating funds come from you, the loyal listener! Steve's Folk Radio Show offers show premiums in addition to the generous station premiums (found at wcsb.org), so you get a lot of bang for your buck. Here are this year's premiums:
