WCQS listeners, WCQS Public Radio and Western North Carolina - it's a sustainable relationship. A monthly contribution to WCQS makes our service to Western North Carolina possible, and it means you help provide meaningful, relevant and inspiring programming for listeners across the region. Together we make our own lives and the lives of community members across the region better.
Want to have some fun and do some good at the same time? Become a pledge drive phone volunteer! Our Fall Membership Drive is October 10 - 17. WCQS phone volunteers take the incoming calls from listeners who call in to the station to make their contribution. It's a great way to show your support for WCQS and connect with other public radio fans.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact Membership Associate, Jessica Frantz at 828-210-4812 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s the pearfect week to pick up pears at area farmers tailgate markets! While Asian pears—which taste like crisp, juicy apples—have been around for a bit, additional varieties are starting to arrive. Familiar Bartlett pears have been spotted at West Asheville Tailgate Market, and perhaps less-familiar Seckel pears have been spotted at North Asheville Tailgate Market.
