What started as a college radio class project in 1997 has blossomed into an annual Philly DJ tradition.
Since the event’s inception, the Electronic Music Marathon (EMM) has raised over $30,000 for various Philadelphia area non-profits, partnering with a different organization each year to fundraise and fulfill WKDU’s mission of engaging the local community through non-commercial independent music programming.
For our 16th annual EMM, we asked Philadelphia to support us as the sole beneficiary of this year’s EMM, in order to expand our technical capabilities and flourish in Philadelphia’s radio scene, enriching the lives of even more lovely listeners on the FM dial.
The 2019 EMM took place starting on Friday, October 11th at 12:00PM and continued through to the end of Monday, October 14th.
With everyone's support, we broke through our initial goal of $10,000 on the last day of the marathon! As of October 30th, we have raised over $19,000!!!
