The Alternate Side's mother station WFUV usually gets about a half-million dollars every year from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. But this time around we have to meet a higher threshold of listener support in order to get that money from the CPB. That means we have to raise more money than ever before and if we don’t, we’ll lose out on more money than ever before. We've even got a breakdown on how public radio funding works — and why your support is so vital right now.
We have not one, but three special ways of thanking our loyal listeners. Contribute any amount and you're a supporter of The Alternate Side. Contribute $35 and we'll send you Live From The Alternate Side Volume 2 CD with exclusive live songs, all recorded in Studio A, from Beach House, Twin Shadow, Beirut, White Rabbits, Blitzen Trapper and more. For $50 you'll receive Live From The Alternate Side Volume 2 and a TAS t-shirt. And with any TAS contribution over $60, we'll send you the above and Alabama Shakes' debut album Boys & Girls as a bonus.
The Alternate Side is a non-commercial station that plays the best in breaking new music and we rely on you to keep that music going. If you depend on TAS to introduce you to bands like Alt-J, Savoir Adore or METZ or if you like our weekly ticket giveaways to gigs like The xx at Hammerstein Ballroom and Passion Pit at Madison Square Garden, connect with us by becoming a member. If you're hooked on our exclusive studio sessions from artists like The Tallest Man On Earth or Yellow Ostrich — which you'll find on Live From The Alternate Side Volume 2 — please show your support. Become an Alt-Insider at any amount online or call 877-938-8907.
