Folk Alley’s Fall Anniversary Fund Drive

September 28, 2005

It’s been 6 months since I started working at Folk Alley and I’ve been overwhelmed with the enthusiastic letters of support that we receive each day from our listeners – literally from all over the world. Personally, I learned about Folk Alley about a year ago, and I was immediately struck by what an amazing service Folk Alley provided me, a folk music junky. Finally, an opportunity to listen to folk music radio anytime I want, for as long as I want. Wow. Thank you, Internet!

Perhaps you had a similar reaction when you discovered Folk Alley?

Folk Alley is filling a niche for me, you and 10’s of 1000’s of other folk music lovers all over the world - allowing us on-demand access to a mix of music barely heard on the radio these days. We are a non-commercial service, so you’ll notice you don’t hear those annoying interruptions in the stream after every three songs. We don’t charge you a subscription fee before we allow you to listen either.

So how DO we pay for it? We’ve decided to make the service free and accessible to everyone, but we are relying on our listeners to chip in with a financial contribution so we can keep this service coming. That’s why we have periodic fund drives such as this Fall Anniversary Fund Drive. We have to pay our bills. It’s that simple.

We’re asking you to stop and consider the value that 24/7, on-demand folk music has for you and to donate what you can to keep the music streaming around the globe. What does Folk Alley bring to you each day? Is it worth a dollar a day? $5 a week? 2 or 3 bucks a week? Only you can answer that question, but we’re asking you to join the others who have already done their part and please donate what you can today. Thanks.

So I joined for $50 a few weeks ago. Got me a fabulous sticker which is the only one I'll put on my guitar case. Trouble is, I got two guitars and am convicing myself of the need for a third. What's a fella to do?

Yup, I added my other two cents to support a service I'm finding more and more important to me. The website keeps me current and the streaming audio continues to mazae and delight me.

It's hard not to laugh or sing along or sigh here in the cubicle farm... but what am amazing problem to have!

Thanks folks, you're all doing a great job!

Happy Anniversary. Thank you for all you're doing to keep the dream & the music alive. I know its not your best paying gig. All the more reason for fabulously unwealthy folks like myself to appreciate whatcher doin and to say, "thank you".

I just stumbled across folkalley.com tonight; absolutely fantastic! I've listened for a few hours so far and I know I'll continue to listen. Keep it up...and you can count on my support! Thanks very much for providing an outstanding service for people like me who really love folk music.

Tuned into Folk Alley again... thank God that these Chinese hotel rooms have high speed connections. Keeps my sanity while working over here!
Make it worth the support I pledged last month.
