RFP Music Royalties Fund Raiser

$3,000 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 67 people in 16 months
Andy Olson  GLOBE, AZ
Radio Free Phoenix is a free-form rock station on the net with a fully volunteer DJ staff. We have been on-air for over 12 years, commercial free, and have now reached a critical point where the very existence of the station is threatened by a massive increase in music royalties which took place on January 1, 2016. The fees the station pays to keep the music flowing increased over 400% in 2016, making streaming copyrighted musical content prohibitively expensive for many small- to mid-sized internet radio stations including Radio Free Phoenix

We have set the goal of $6,000 to cover this increase for 2016 and on through 2017. Your donation to RFP will allow use to stay on the air bringing this great mix of rock, alternative, progressive, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's and new music too. Radio Free Phoenix is unique to the net and so is our airstaff of musically knowledgeable DJ's. Thank you for your support!

For over 12 years, Radio Free Phoenix has kept an incredible amount of great Rock 'n' Roll alive and on the air - music that otherwise would be lost to the world. 2016 has been our most challenging year for raising funds for the station. The rates we pay to play the music went up over 400% last year. We need your help - please donated to Radio Free Phoenix and let us keep bringing this great music to you!

I would like to thank everybody who has made a donation through this Go Fund Me page to help keep Radio Free Phoenix alive and on the air. Radio Free Phoenix is a culmination of over 50 years of great rock music, a special place staffed by those that have the passion and desire to make a difference, along with a love for this music and a wish to share it with the world. A true rarity in this day and age – a radio station that stands for sometime and does make a difference. We are closing in on our 12th year on air and this year has been our most difficult one financially. We have weathered a tremendous jump in the amount we pay for the rights to play the music (now close to 500% higher since January 1st, 2016) and have raised 1/3 of what we need to survive this year, Please help us to continue on this journey and thanks for listening to RFP!

This was my favourite radio station for years before I was lucky enough to be given a show to present. So many talented, independent artists have benefited from getting exposure on RFP - let's keep discovering and sharing great music!
