River Radio Needs You
Written by River Radio on 30/10/2020
This weekend we have launched our go-fund-me appeal to allow us to progress the capability and capacity of the station.
The last thing we wanted to do was ask anyone for money but unfortunately the station requires capital just to stay on the air. We have been ploughing our own money into the station until recently when we secured some much needed sponsorship from The House of Argyll, which has been a welcomed assist and has eased the pressure somewhat.
Working remotely, our 20+ presenters have been providing a fantastic schedule of programmes for our local community and supporting local businesses and initiatives along the way.
To enable us to improve and provide a more reliable ‘virtual studio’ we need to invest in some serious technology. As you can imagine this comes at quite a price and we need to raise in the region of £1,500 to cover these costs upfront for the coming year just for the software and streaming servers.
We have a vision here at River Radio, one that will ultimately see us secure a physical studio and continue to grow as a Community Radio Station, your Community Radio Station. Please help us on our way to becoming something that the Vale of Leven, Dumbarton and surrounding areas can proudly call their own.
p.s. If you’re interested in the geeky stuff that we’re raising funds for, it’s all available at https://www.playoutone.com/
