And be sure to check out our Patreon page, where you can show your support and help us keep our toe-tapping tunes alive and streaming for as little as $1 a month!
Patreon is a website that allows creative types to receive monthly support from their fans, followers and, in our case, listeners. We’ve set up several contribution levels, starting as low as $1 a month, and with a thank-you gift (or gifts) at each level.
Cladrite Radio is a labor of love, but it costs us a good deal of money, time and energy. A little support from our listeners, readers and followers will go a long way toward making things a bit easier for us.
If you listen to our toe-tapping tunes, enjoy our posts here on our blog and on our various social media platforms, or both, we’d very much appreciate if you’d at least pay a visit to our Patreon page and consider chipping in what you can—you’ll receive some swell stuff in return, in addition to our deep gratitude. We love exploring the pop culture of the first half of the 20th century with you, and your support can help us dig even deeper.
Here’s wishing a very happy vintage Thanksgiving to our listeners and readers everywhere—from Betty, Bogie and all of your pals at Cladrite Radio! Have a piece of pumpkin pie for us!
And be sure to tune into Cladrite Radio on Friday, when we’ll add an engaging assortment of classic Christmas songs to our collection of toe-tapping tunes of the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s!
