WYSO Leaders

WYSO puts you in touch with your world, your state, and your community. It’s radio for the citizen in us all.

The generous contributions of WYSO members make our daily operations possible. We also have a group of dedicated partners who work to expand our operations:

Members of the WYSO Leaders major giving society contribute $500 and more each year and these dollars are used to grow WYSO’s programs – expanding your access to news and information.

WYSO Leaders are more than members – they are community partners.

Donate online here, or call Luke Dennis at 769-1379 to join the circle of WYSO Leaders.

Many of our Leaders are also Sustainers

Consider becoming a Leader at the $50/month or $100/month levels with a Sustaining Membership.

WYSO Leaders Events Schedule

Upcoming Listening Parties at the WYSO World Headquarters, 150 E. South College Street, Yellow Springs, OH, 45387:

The next Listening Party is June 4 from 7-9pm.

This time we are offering a behind-the scenes glimpse of WYSO’s new series REDISCOVERED RADIO. Meet producer Jocelyn Robinson and listen to excerpts of raw material from the WYSO Archive, which dates back to our first broadcast in 1958. You’ll hear samples of the original content from which Robinson will craft a year’s worth of REDISCOVERED RADIO episodes, as she gives you a personal tour of her process and approach.
