WZUM Grows with Your Support!
WZUM reaches more people than ever, on the air and online. To keep the momentum going, we need your support.
Between now and June 30th, we have a very important goal: raise $50,000 in listener support.
Your contribution helps keep the lights, the website and the transmitters on. Special programs like the MCG Jazz Spotlight, the Scene, and the Pittsburgh Show have joined other favorites. We delighted to bring you details on the increasing number of live Pittsburgh jazz performances as chronicled on WZUM’s Jazz Central, too!

We are now counting upwards of 200 live jazz performances in Pittsburgh and throughout the tristate area, every month. We talk about it on the radio, and we encourage you to see and hear the great performers and venues in person! Click on Jazz Central for the latest we know about. We update it often.
