Those of you who have gifted from your IRAs in this way in the past are familiar with how this positively impacts your financial situation. There are two unique provisions to this renewal:

Test Feed

Saturday Mornings from 10:00 am until 12 Noon.

Two hours of fun, or where old British radio programs go to die, depending on your point of view. Don Wooten and a cavalcade of guests kill two hours in a very unceremonious way. The conversation and mayhem is accompanied by the panels of My Word, My Music, and the ground-breaking British comedy of The Goon Show.

So you've heard Saturday Morning Live!? Show your support for WVIK anyway and make a pledge online.

Jan 1, 1970

Some employers and insurance companies match charitable giving to higher educations and public broadcasting. To find out if your employer offers such an opportunity to increase the amount of your gift to WVIK, please enter the name of your matching gift company (your employer or insurance company) to see if your company will match your gift and access the forms necessary. You can also contact Colleen Sibthorp and she'll be glad to assist you at 309-794-7741.

WVIK will be part of a special week of celebration in LeClaire, Iowa. We have teamed up with tourism officials to help promote the river town Oct. 19-26. WVIK's one and only Roald Tweet will be producing five new live "Rock Island Lines" at 11 a.m. each weekday that week. The three-minute shows will be rebroadcast each night at 6:30.
