Markathon, Portland, Maine’s unofficial “Season of Giving” kick off, is back for its 14th year, supporting the Center for Grieving Children.
Tune that radio dial to 94.3 WCYY (or check out the WCYY app) beginning Monday December 5, 2022 and get ready for 6 days of no-holds bar radio requests, personal stories, and special guests.
For those asking, what the heck is Markathon, it is an annual tradition in the Portland radio world.
Long-time, and much beloved (former WCYY) radio host, Mark Curdo returns to the air as a one-man wonder, taking your song requests around the clock for 6 days straight.
Every December, WYCC DJs take a quick hiatus from their usual alt-rock playlists in support of the Center for Grieving Children, playing any song from Taylor Swift to Celine Dion to even the theme song for Ghostbusters.
Mark and the team at CGC Maine have made making your song request easier than ever. Visit the Markathon donation page to request your song and pledge your donation.
But the fun doesn’t end there! Mark has worked tirelessly to host an awesome auction of music industry items and more. Visit the auction page today to see what is up for grabs!
Markathon to date has raised more than $650,000 in support of the Center for Grieving Children. The Center for Grieving Children provides peer support, outreach, and education to 4,000+ families annually, and their services are free for as long as needed and whenever needed.
