Now’s the time to VOTE WORT!!!

03/27/13 8:06 PM | Sybil Augustine

mamas_logo WORT Radio is up for a MAMA award again this year, and several of our DJs and staff have also made it to the final round in the MAMAs. Check out and see if any of your favorite radio, industry, or musician people are nominated. Online voting is open until May 17th. The MAMAS [Madison Area Music Awards] were created to honor Madison area musicians and supporters and we’re always nominated [and so far, have always won] for Favorite Radio Station. Not only have we made it to the final voting round again, but in addition, a couple of our hosts are still in the running for Local Music Radio Personality: Bill Malone of Back To The Country, and Rockin’ John of I Like It Like That. Also, DJ The Real Jaguar is a nominee for Favorite DJ [for spinning in clubs], and WORT Music Director Sybil Augustine is competing with 3 others to be named Local Music Fan of the Year!!  [I really think Madison's music scene is quite fantastic right now, and I do champion it every chance I get.--Sybil] Also, the CD of protest music that came out last year entitled Cheddar Revolution: Songs of Uprising is up for Best Compilation Album along with some of the individual songs nominated in various categories. If you want to see what the MAMA’s website looks like, check it out at and you can vote now for a mere $5 donation, which goes to support bringing musical instruments into area middle and high schools. Register and vote at through May 17. Thanks SO MUCH for your continued support, WORT fans!!
