Feedback: Can You Slow Down the Streaming & Enough with the Jean Cochran!

Send us your feedback to: WEKU (at) EKU (dot) edu, call the Comment Line at 859-622-1657, post on Facebook or send us a tweet @889weku

Over the weekend, we had an interesting comment from Mike in Versailles. He writes, “I stream WEKU and have noticed WEKU uses more broadband resources than other streaming sources I often listen to (like jazzradio or old time radio). Is it possible to stream weku at a lower level? If I'm

listening to WEKU and try downloading a large file at the same time, my system slows down a lot. I will often have to turn off WEKU to complete the download.”

Nearly 500 Support WEKU During Spring Fund Drive

WEKU says "Thanks" to everyone who donated during the Spring Fund Drive.  The drive ended Saturday at 1:00 pm, about $9,000 short of the $80,000 goal.

During this drive we've invited listeners to become Day Sponsors.  As a special benefit, all Day Sponsors will be welcome at a reception with former NPR newscaster, Jean Cochran, and a taping of WEKU's Eastern Standard, Wednesday evening May 7 in Lexington. 

If you didn't get a chance to pledge during the drive, you can still make your $180 donation ($15 per month) now or contribute any amount you choose.
