MATTOON -- An area radio station is using the airwaves to give back. Friday is day two for 101.3 WMCI's Country Cares Radio-a-thon. It's a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

For 48 hours, people are manning the radio and phones, hoping listeners will donate to the cause while hearing their favorite songs. Last year, the station raised more than $101,000. They hope to beat that this year.

Donations are being taken until 6 pm. For more information, click here or call (800) 566 - 9690.
