Friday December 15th Is Fundraising Friday Here In The Attic!

On Friday, December 15th, Charlie’s 80s Attic is asking for your support! It’s our second annual pledge drive! We are asking you to partner up with us so that we can bring you another year of music and special programming! Charlie, Kari and Joe will be on air from 9am-5pm eastern asking for your support!

We love being able to bring you great music and memories from Charlie’s 80s Attic 24/7–365, and although we keep our expenses low, there are lots of expenses associated with delivering great music around the world, day in and day out! For us to stay on the air and bring you all this great music and special programming, we are required to pay music licensing fees, music royalty fees, streaming fees, software licensing fees and a host of other fees which run into the thousands each year.

Unlike terrestrial radio, we are commercial free…we do not generate any revenue by airing commercials. Unlike satellite radio, we are subscription free…we don’t charge listeners a fee to access our content. So the only way a small, independent radio station can generate revenue to help with operating costs is through selling merchandise in our merchandise store, where we only earn 10%-15% of the total cost of an item…and by reaching out to our generous listeners once a year asking for their support!

You can help with these tremendous costs by visiting our fundraiser on PayPal. There you can make a secure donation using your debit card, credit card, or PayPal account.

Please email us at [email protected] for details. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support! We look forward to bringing you another year of commercial free and subscription free music and special programming!
