Dave Atlas, February Member of the Month

"Over the last 7 years I’ve had the joy of sharing my love of music with many fellow Philadelphians, DJ’ing. In 2016 it was a natural progression to join the nascent WPPM team -- and it has been an absolute thrill to be involved in such a rapidly growing community ever since. 

Outside of the studio, my passion for WPPM’s mission and zeal for organizing events led me to the Fundraising and Outreach committee, where I’ve championed the development of an underwriting program as one of the major steps towards increasing our community engagement and fundraising with future events (let’s make a WPPM Philadelphia Record Fair happen!). 

WPPM is not funded with big cable money, although we are lucky to exist beneath the physical and administrative umbrella of PhillyCAM. Many of us work very hard to produce 50+ hours (each!) of local programming every year. I hope to remind everyone that we must continue to work together--outside of the studio--to ensure that WPPM thrives for many years to come!"
