If you enjoying listening to JM in the AM livestream as much as I do, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to help keep the show alive! My DH listens on his way to work while I listen in the kitchen feeding the kids breakfast. Fortunately, I can listen whenever I want to from the computer on JM 24.

And while Nachum’s dedication to Jewish music and culture has been nothing if not unshakeable, he’s complemented that reliability with innovations that have brought JM in the AM to listeners the world over, starting a 24 hour music stream, a popular online community calendar and more.

Rumor has it that he’s recently started DJ’ing with a laptop computer. But I’ll believe that when I see it.

The one thing that could shatter the stability of JM in the AM—both its spirit and its bankbook—would be a significant drop in listener contributions during our annual fundraising marathon.

The economy claimed one of WFMU’s most crucial allies last year—the New Jersey restaurant that’s rented us space for our 91.1 FM transmitter since 1970. We’ve been given until the end of 2009 to relocate the transmitter, at which point our monthly rent will increase 500%.

At the same time, another deadline looms. We need to complete work on our new transmitter in Times Square by this August or we lose the chance to improve our over-the-air coverage.

Thanks for being there for us year after year. Hope we’ll hear from you as we start the second quarter century of JM in the AM!
