Become a patron of the Indie Bohemians Morning Show

16 Dec


For as little as $1 a month you can make two comedian’s dreams come true and help them pay for gas to and from a little radio station in Pasquo, TN.

But seriously…Patreon is a website similar to kickstarter but for creators who create on a continual basis, not just one project. We crank out four two-hour news/pop culture/comedy shows every week for no money.  We love doing it, but hope to transition this into a career.  For now we’d be content with gas money.

You can support us at any level, starting at just $1 a month. Every single member gets perks, and the perks get better the more you support us.

Our show is now broadcast live all over Nashville, but it’s not just for Nashvillians! We have two affiliates (and counting) and the streaming show and podcast are available all over the world.  Listening to the show is always free, but we’ll make bonus content and other cool stuff for our patrons.

That’s the pitch! Consider becoming a patron today.  Check out our page for lots of updates, cool stuff, and all the perks.

RadioFreeNashville is Citywide!

11 Dec

This is the second article by the Nashville Scene since we went Citywide on Dec 1, 2014.  2015 is going to be a great year for public radio in Nashville and you can be a part.  Here’s a link to the article.

Here’s a letter to potential supporters from our Exec Director, Ginny Welsch.  Please give it a read and consider being a supporter and/or underwriter.

Dear Friend of Progressive Radio:

Can you believe it? Radio Free Nashville is now citywide!  Thanks to friends and supporters like you, all our great programming and music can now be heard everywhere there’s a radio: in the car, in the office, in the home. It’s exciting for all of us who have been working and waiting for years to make this change a reality. And it couldn’t have happened at a better time.

Our state legislature is now under the control of a very large and very conservative majority intent on ignoring important constituencies. Will you help us continue to get the progressive message out so that we can assure that all Tennesseans—poor or rich and of every culture, race and creed—aren’t left behind? Your tax-deductible contribution to Radio Free Nashville (RFN) will help us counteract the conservative agenda by making sure progressive voices remain part of the dialogue and debate.

The past year was a great one for RFN. At the forefront of the good news, of course, is that the station we have built together is now citywide. Our reach has greatly increased, allowing more people to tune in and get the unbiased facts, news and information they need in order to make informed decisions. It’s an exciting development, and one that will help us push back against the anti-progressive forces that want to move this state and our country in reverse.

Will you help us keep progressive radio going strong in Tennessee? Your tax-deductible contribution to Radio Free Nashville will help assure that RFN continues to grow and flourish as we move into an exciting new year.

The good news in 2014 didn’t stop with us going citywide. We also launched our first daily, local morning show and brought on a raft of new shows focused on subjects ranging from cancer support to beer making to the local Haitian community—and more. In addition to offering the kind of programming found nowhere else, RFN also helped several other non–profit organizations successfully apply for their own Low Power FM (LPFM) construction permits and is working to get them on the air. And we organized to fight against proposed FCC rules that will gut true net neutrality. We may be small, but we’re a force.

Launching 103.7 was the jewel in RFN’s crown this year and our citywide reach is amazing. But the reality of our expansion was costly as new, ongoing operating expenses begin to accumulate. Since we are now facing a radio landscape where the playing field is more equal, our responsibilities to a growing community of listeners also have grown exponentially. Please consider a gift of $25, $50, $100, $500—whatever you can afford—to keep the newly positioned RFN going full speed in 2015.

There are several ways you can donate. Write a check payable to Radio Free Nashville and send it to PO Box 41488, Nashville, Tennessee 37204.

Or make a donation through Community Shares, either through your workplace or online.

On behalf of Radio Free Nashville and our community of programmers, thank you in advance for your generous support. Together we’re taking back the publicly owned airwaves, one watt at a time!

P.S.  Please remember: Radio Free Nashville is an all-volunteer organization, from management on down. Your tax-deductible gift of $25, $50, $100, $500—whatever you can afford—will enable us to focus our energies on continuing to bring thought-provoking programming and expanding our reach even further so that everyone who wants to participate in the media will have the chance. Remember, every gift helps.

Family Troubles – Episode 1

4 Dec

We filmed this with Mr. Tuesday Productions a few months ago, but here’s the finished product.  All the lines are improvised, it’s a fun time.  Warning, there is strong language.  If you’re not into that then you might want to skip this one.  If you like strong language and 90’s parodies….then Family Troubles is for you.
