We’re about ten or twelve days into our fundraising drive to keep Cladrite Radio alive and streaming; the renewal of our annual contract with Live365, our streaming provider, comes due in mid-April. If we’ve not reached our goal of $500 by the 15th of next month, the best-case scenario is that the number of recordings that we’re able to offer, the range of performance styles and genres of music, the variety of orchestras and vocalists will become much narrower than what you’ve grown accustomed to.
Worst-case scenario? The music will stop altogether.
We recognize that sounds a bit dramatic, but we’re giving it to you straight. Ou budget is very tight this year, and unless you, our listeners, come through for us, a belt-tightening (or worse) will be unavoidable, and there will be less of the music we all love to be enjoyed.
The good news is, a few loyal listeners have come through with contributions—we’re just under 20% of the way to our target of $500—and there’s still time for you, too, to play a role in keeping alive the stream of toe-tapping tunes. Every dollar helps, of course, but we’ve got some enticing premiums to for those who chip in at various levels.
|$10 — A ten-spot will bring you a Cladrite Radio magnet for your refrigerator, your office cube, any metallic surface that could do with some decorating.
$25 — Send us twenty-five dollars and we’ll let you assist us in creating an hour of programming on Cladrite Radio: We’ll devote sixty minutes to playing your favorite songs from the Cladrite Era, your favorite artists, and when possible, your favorite songs performed by your favorite artists. And we’ll do our best to schedule that hour of programming in a time slot that suits you, so that you can invite friends, colleagues and family to listen in.
$50 — Slip us fifty bucks, and we’ll send you a Cladrite Radio t-shirt in your size of choice, plus you’ll get to help us create an hour of programming (and what the heck, we’ll throw in a magnet, too).
