Still reading? Here are some things we thought you should know:

  • RadioU plays the best music on the planet. Music that says something.
  • RadioU doesn’t play any commercials. Never has.
    » We’re not even allowed to by federal law, so we never will.
  • RadioU still has real DJs who actually care about their listeners.
    » Click the “Impact” tab above for some real-life examples!
  • RadioU isn’t owned by a big company. It’s just us here. We’re even nonprofit.
  • With no commercials and no profit, RadioU runs only because people donate.

Your music + zero commercials + donations = RadioU.

It doesn’t take a lot to do a lot!

RadioU is 21 FM stations plus streaming through mobile apps, online, and through our Roku channel!

We hired a team of mathematicians who figured out that if you sign up to donate just $25 a month, you’ll pay for one whole day of your local RadioU station or stream! Or, $150 onetime works the same way.

Network-wide, it costs $94 an hour to run RadioU on all of its stations and streams. That works out to about $7 for every song we play. RadioU’s impact starts with a $7 song, but it doesn’t end there!

The Impact

RadioU believes music should say something. And that the music we play can actually change peoples’ lives for the better. The people below prove we were right about all that.

Read them all, post your own story to our Facebook page, and donate to reach our next listener!

A. listens to RadioU 88.7 in Westerville, Ohio

I was especially thankful for Obadiah this morning when he was talking about struggles with depression. I lost a friend to suicide just over a week ago, and it has been a very scary time for me because I also struggle with depression. I have felt like I’m fighting for my life in the last week, and listening this morning gave me some hope. I appreciate you all so much!

Brian listens to RadioU 106.5 in Puyallup, Washington

This past year whenever I’ve started to feel darkness creep in, RadioU has been a great outlet for me. Cranking up RadioU gives a great positive distraction. Thank you for all you do and the message of God’s love and hope that you spread. It’s refreshing in a sea of negativity out there.

Megan listens to RadioU 88.7 in Gahanna, Ohio

I heard this song when I was driving and the words finally sunk in… ‘God’s not done with me yet!’ It was a super cool moment because I knew everything would be okay. I just have to get through this mess and healing and I will be okay!

Kaylen listens to RadioU 88.5 Fredonia, New York

I just had a friend who committed suicide yesterday and it’s been really hard. I heard ‘This Is Not The End’ from Safemode and it really means a lot to me. It’s keeping my head up and it’s not the end and that everything’s eventually going to be okay. RadioU means a lot to me and I just wanted to say thank you.

Jackson listens through RadioU’s mobile app in Roanoke, Virginia

RadioU introduced me to my favorite band, which was there for me during my darkest days of depression and thoughts of suicide. The RIOT has given me so many laughs when I didn’t think I could, and you have always kept Jesus at the forefront even when I didn’t want Him to be. You have been there for what feels like a lifetime now. Thanks for these past six years and the many more to come!

TJ listens to RadioU in Ohio

I just got done doing prison time and I wanted to let you all know that RadioU helped me tremendously through the hard times. Thank you so much for the inspiration. Keep up the good news and great music.

Jason listens to RadioU 101.9 in Chillicothe, Ohio

I was in prison for drugs last year. When I couldn’t get my usual rock station, I was going through the stations and heard “Black Honey” by Thrice on your station. Every song that came on that night was music to my ears. I am out of prison now and no longer use the substance I had overdosed on. I changed my people, my places, my things, and I changed the radio station I listened to when I was getting high. I’ve been clean over a year now, and since RadioU, I’ve never considered going back to the old station I used to listen to. RadioU has been a major weapon in my personal battle against drug abuse and my own personal demons. I tell everyone I know about RadioU and the positive influence the music has had on me.

Faith listens to RadioU 101.7 in Midland, Michigan

I love that the music RadioU plays deals with things we tend to ignore, even though we all experience them. Some days can get really, really hard. Whenever I tune to RadioU, things don’t seem so bleak. I’m not alone in my struggles, and there is hope for a brighter tomorrow. Thanks for doing what you do.

With your help, we’ve launched FOUR new RadioU stations recently:

  • 103.5 Saginaw, Michigan
  • 101.9 Chillicothe, Ohio

  • 105.5 in Newark, Ohio
  • 92.5 in Mansfield, Ohio

Now, we’re coming to Athens, Ohio!

  • Home of 29,000 students at Ohio University!
  • We hope to have Athens on the air soon after the fundraiser!

T-shirt + Hoodie FAQ
  • If your donation is at least $25 a month or $150 onetime, we can send you an exclusive I AM RadioU Fall Fundraiser t-shirt. It’s our way of saying “thanks” for the help!
  • If you’ve started with a smaller donation during RadioU’s Fall Fundraiser, you can later increase your donation to qualify for the t-shirt. Or if you’re already giving at least $25 a month, you can request one when you add a onetime donation or increase your monthly giving, or through our Update Preferences page without adding to your giving.
  • You can request multiple t-shirts, but each must be accompanied by an additional qualifying donation (ie, you can request two shirts when you give $50/mo)
  • Choose your size carefully — we’ll be unable to offer exchanges. T-shirts will be shipped later this fall, and once we’ve received at least partial payment toward your donation.
  • The same principles apply to The RIOT Club lightweight hoodie at its qualifying giving levels of $50 a month or $300 onetime.
