Local Christmas CD Gets Second Run to Benefit Local Food Pantries

A couple years ago a few members of the local music scene, LAME (Local Area Music Ensemble), recorded their second holiday CD with proceeds being donated to the Oliva Fund for Cancer Care at Milford Regional Center.  Local musicians who contributed to the project included Justin Redden Ray Auger, Jim Ligor, Tim Galvin and more including fifteen local artists contributing their vocals to a recordng of the 1984 classic Do They Know It's Chirstmas.  The CD also features an original Christmas tune written and performed by Mike Perry.

Their efforts resulted in a $1700 donation to the WMRC Radiothon in 2015.  Since these Christmas songs are timeless, we ordered a new batch for this year's holiday season!  They are available at the WMRC studios for a cash donation for local food pantries.  If you have a retail store and would like to help us sell these CDs please contact Ray at raywmrc@gmail.com.
