EYEspeak invites you to a screening of Radio Unnameable and discussion to learn more about why and how to support WBAI and WFMU.

When Sandy hit it trapped seven of WBAI’s staff in studios on the 11th story of a building with seawater up to the second floor. Today, the building’s wiring is still unusable, and the station’s facing a second disaster: because the storm knocked WBAI off the air in the middle of a fund drive, and the station has no way to resume fundraising, it faces the prospect of laying off its entire staff and going dark for good.

Meanwhile across the river in Jersey City, WFMU suffered substantial electrical damage taking them off the air for several days. The storm also forced WFMU to cancel their annual Record Fair, which provides the station with the bulk of its funding.Both stations worked to continue broadcasting critical information about storm recovery despite their own setbacks.They were there for us! How can we be there for them? Come find out!
