I am excited to let you know about From The Podium, a radio show and podcast that I am producing and hosting, and that YOU can call in to…
This is not only expanding the more than 40 episodes of my two-minute podcast Stephen’s Classical Rate N Slate to a full hour each week, but From The Podium will be LIVE!
It took a while to pull together a fabulous team of creative and technical talent from all over the place to make this show happen, including Lalo Schifrin’s Music Tech, a #classicalmusic fan club, as well as an FM/AM radio station that first aired in 1948. Today, we have already raised over $200 toward our goal of $2,500 and are reaching out to ask you to consider making a donation.
Why radio and podcast?
Because in 2015 more than half the population of the USA discovered new music via the radio, and last year podcast listenership shot up 23%, resulting in the same percentage of the US listening to podcasts as uses Twitter (21%) – that’s HUGE!
But the project has reached a critical point:
Everything is in place to broadcast and distribute our first four episodes, except the studio costs and music licensing fees. That’s why your contribution is so critical right now. We cannot launch at 8am on Saturday, November 4 without your support.
I, for one, really appreciate the support that has already been received, and thank YOU for considering adding to their number and donations.
The really exciting part is that as a supporter, you will be able to call the radio show LIVE and make a classical music request, or even just join in the chat based on the topic of the day!
Who knows, maybe the show’s guest will chat with you, too…
Make a fully tax-deductible donation
