So we thought we”d brew up a little reward for the early-morning risers (or late-night-go-to-bedders!) with the launch of the WDAV Breakfast Club….a special incentive for any listeners who called in or made an online pledge before 6 am: Not only a WDAV coffee mug (hey, we”re a public radio station, after all!), but also a whole bag of coffee beans from Summit Coffee in Davidson. And whadya know? Turns out there are plenty of listeners, from near and far, online and over the air, who are now charter members. Including one new member in the Smoky Mountains gateway town of Otto, NC, some 200 miles away from the WDAV transmitter!
