WSBF is proud to announce the beginning of our brand new pledge drive and multi-day music festival, SHARK WEEK, made possible in conjunction with our friends CLEMSONSONLiVE and Graduate Student Government.

SHARK WEEK will be jammed packed with quality entertainment, including four nights of live music at venues on and off Clemson University’s campus, special pledge drive related programming on-air, a blood drive hosted by The Blood Connection, giveaways, and MORE!

WSBF is the upstate’s number one student-run source for alternative media & news and we especially love playing the best music you’ve never heard, but we cannot do it without your help! Faced with yearly budget cuts and the inevitable replacement of an aging FM transmitter, WSBF is asking for community support during the week of April 13th – 18th to ensure the future of our beloved radio station. Join us at our live music events and our on-air pledge drive during SHARK WEEK to find out how you can help us continue providing great entertainment to the Clemson community.

Looking ahead, we’ve also started fundraising for SPRINGFEST VI! Springfest is a music and arts festival featuring local and regional music as well as vendors and artists. WSBF has hosted Springfest every April for 5 years now, and we hope to make Springfest VI just as awesome, if not better! Now that it’s chilly out, we’ve started selling hot grilled cheese and tomato soup on some Friday and Saturday nights in downtown Clemson. If you’re downtown and in need of a late night snack, be on the lookout for WSBF’s grilled cheese and soup stand; help raise money for Springfest and satiate that hot cheese craving.
