We’re giving away the latest version of the Apple iPad.
The iPad Air 2 features a Retina display, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a powerful A8X chip, improved iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, Wi-Fi, and weighs less than a pound. Call 423-425-4756 and make a donation or give online to be automatically entered into the drawing.
Today is Pet Wars day—the day when we ask you to make a pledge not only in your name, but also in the name(s) of your pet(s). Today only, WUTC’s hosts will read pets' names on the air. We’ll also count up which types of pets receive the most pledges—cats, dogs, or perhaps even goldfish.
WUTC was one of Chattanooga’s first radio stations to go digital and to broadcast in HD. In honor of that, we’re giving away a couple of Insignia HD Radio tabletop radios that feature 10 station presets and audio input jacks to allow you to connect headphones and a compatible audio device. These will allow you to hear WUTC in HD (a clearer, better-sounding way of broadcasting) as well as WUTC HD-2, our secondary stream featuring more news and music. This drawing will happen at 8 pm on 3/23.
We’re giving away an iPad Mini 3, the latest version of Apple’s compact tablet.
It features a 7.9" Retina display, a 5MP iSight Camera and a FaceTime HD Camera, up to 10 hours of battery life, and Wi-Fi.
This drawing will happen at 8 pm on 3/20.
No contribution is necessary to enter the giveaways. If you’d prefer to enter without making a contribution, visit the station during normal business hours and fill out a drawing slip. Click here for rules and details.
WUTC has a special giveaway on Wednesday, March 18th. One lucky listener will win a green WUTC cooler tote that contains an insulated steel WUTC water tumbler and two books: Bringing Nature Home by Douglas Tallamy, and The Living Landscape by Douglas Tallamy and Rick Darke. Make a contribution before 8 pm on 3/18 to be entered into the drawing!
Best of Public Media Prize Packs may include CDs, Fresh Air 25th Anniversary flash drives, or a flash drive shaped like Carl Kassell (filled with Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me content).
Throughout the day, WUTC will give away eight “Best of Public Media” gift packs. These are our special blue insulated WUTC Lunch Cooler totes, and each tote contains different assortments of items such as CDs featuring Stuart McLean, David Sedaris or Michael Feldman (Whad’ya Know?); This American Life and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and Fresh Air flash drives (each one contains MP3s of various episodes and special bonus content); NPR bumper stickers; and other goodies. These drawings will happen at various times throughout the day; tune in for more information.
More than a mere record player, the Electrohome Signature also features an AM/FM tuner, a CD player, a USB input for playing music off flash drives, and an input for smartphones and tablets. You can also use it to play records and convert them to MP3s. It’s housed in a sharp-looking, retro-inspired wooden cabinet.
We’re giving away the latest version of Amazon’s e-book reader, which has 4GB of storage, new PagePress technology that allows you to turn pages without lifting a finger, and a new adaptive front light that adjusts to your surroundings.
Here’s how it works. During our drive, we’ll have special giveaways (click here to see what’s on the schedule). When you call 423-425-4756 and make a pledge, or pledge online here, we’ll put your name in the drawing box.* Once your name’s in, it stays in – so if you pledge on (or before) the first day of the drive, you’ll be eligible for all 10 days of giveaways. If you wait until the second day of the drive, you’ll be eligible for 9 days of giveaways—and so on.
WUTC’s staff would like to thank all our volunteers who turned out Tuesday, March 10, for the volunteer training luncheon. It was great to see so many people in attendance – we had a packed house!
The almost-final draft of the master schedule for volunteers has been assembled, and we have sent out emails to many of our volunteers. If you didn’t get an email, then please call the station office at 423-425-4756 this week to check your schedule.
Spring brings the promise of renewal and new growth, and that’s also true for WUTC, Chattanooga’s National Public Radio station. Starting on March 16, WUTC staff will be on the air reminding our listeners to renew their pledge to WUTC and asking listeners who’ve never given before to do so.As a special incentive to give early in this membership drive, if you make a donation before March 16, your name will be entered twice in all the on-air giveaway drawings.
