Volunteers of the Year for 2022 are honored with a PARTY!

Share this:

WMNF, the Best Little Radio Station on Planet Earth, has been Volunteer-Powered since 1979.

It is our privilege and pleasure to work with so many generous people, who give time and energy each week, some even on a daily basis.  We couldn’t be who we are or where we are without so much help.  On Sunday, April 23rd, we held an in-person Volunteer Appreciation Party to celebrate all of these wonderful humans at Rick’s on the River in Tampa.

These are a few who are being recognized for exceptional efforts in the year 2022:
