Meet the Voices of WCVE at a Mug Stop!

Winning Design by Lathan Gordon

We want to get to know you, our listeners, over coffee and hear what you love about public radio. 

Grab a free* cup of coffee with WCVE at one of our Mug Stops during our FM Pledge Drive from April 22-26.

Do you love to listen to WCVE wherever you go? We do too! Share your love of WCVE News and WCVE Music with our collectible, listener-designed mug--available only at our designated Mug Stops for just $10! Use the hashtag #pledgeWCVE while you're there, show us your post, and enjoy a small cup of house coffee from our generous Mug Stop hosts for FREE as a "thank you" for supporting public radio! Note to preserve the artwork you we recommend that you don't microwave or dish-wash this mug.

PLEASE NOTE: The time for our Mug Stop at Chairlift on Thursday has changed and will run from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM
