Hello Listeners, (P.O. Box 1073 Dundee, IL)

I hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy during these difficult times. The pandemic has also affected our radio show. Since I am a volunteer radio show host, I am not allowed on the College of DuPage campus. Hence WDCB is airing old shows until further notice. The programs were good when they aired the first time, and hopefully are being enjoyed again. The dated bulletin board is removed and an unnamed song then replaces it. Also there is no promotion of new events either and mail is not being answered. Sorry, but that is just the way things are now. Lots of things are now on hold as we practice social distancing and are concerned about the spread of disease. WDCB is doing its best to keep sounding normal over the air with its fine programs. We are going back through the archives of old shows and finding the ones that feature the best variety of music. As always thanks for listening. Sincerely, John Radio Russell Midwest Ballroom Saturdays 5-7 PM WDCB 90.9 FM and worldwide wdcb.org. and WTPB LP Rockford, IL nightly reruns at 8 P.M.
