Here’s the bottom line:
Thanks to more than 1,000 contributing listeners, KUSP has a little more time. Our Mayday campaign ended April 30. The goal was to raise enough to continue this service for 6-months. While we fell short of the goal, we did raise enough to continue through June.
We’ve had to streamline our operations and lay off dedicated staff and volunteers. None of this was easy. You won’t hear as many voices on the air. But know this:
We’re still 100% committed to providing you with an amazing 24/7 music service worth listening to, and supporting.
And when I say we, I mean me. I mean former staff and programmers who are volunteering their time to talk to business owners and potential donors. I mean directors on our board who are working near-full time to ensure the best responsible outcome. We’ve all got a bias for continuing to build on this great new music service.
We’re going to keep the music coming for as long as we can. Right now, KUSP is operating on a month-to-month basis. If we are to have a path forward, we can’t afford to lose any momentum.
Here’s how you can help:
LISTEN. Turn on KUSP anytime, day or night, and listen. (If you’re not already listening, click here.) See what you think. Let us know! We think it’s the best curated music mix you can get on the radio and online. And now it’s available to you 24/7.
SHARE. Share KUSP with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and beyond. Share your story with other listeners! If you’re willing to lend your voice to a testimonial or fundraising message, contact us here.
In order to sustain this music service, we’ve got to hear from 200+ listeners each month signing up with a micro-gift of $10/month. Been thinking about helping us out? Yes? Great! Click here to help.
Moving forward together,
KUSP Station Manager
