Public Radio Listeners know something about the future. Through their contributions they have kept programs like STAR'S END secure in its time slot. The pledges and donations that come in during the fundraisers are so important and equal in weight to that of the show host or the musicians who populate the playlists every week or come in to perform live on the air.
Action equals character and to keep STAR'S END and WXPN going strong you have to do more than just tune in and listen; you have to call in and pledge. Please do so this weekend on STAR'S END! Your generous act not only funds the radio station but also indicates that you are serious about this unique radio show and the amazing range of music it has presented throughout its over 30 year history. You are also insuring that this unique programming will be there for you every Saturday night when you tune in.
We're not asking for a few people to do a lot, we're asking for a lot of people to do a little. Please call in on the 10.04.09 broadcast of STAR'S END and pledge! Your generosity and support are sincerely appreciated - and are needed to keep WXPN going!
As a special Thank You gift to those contributing $144.00 (on a credit card) STAR'S END is offering admission for two to a live concert with local Spacemusic duo The Tangent Project as well as a copy of the STAR'S END 30th Anniversary Anthology double CD. The performance will be held at 8:30pm on Saturday 5 December 2009 within the intimate space of the WXPN performance studio, 3025 Walnut Street in Philadelphia. In addition to attending the live concert, donors will have the opportunity to tour the studios, meet the members of The Tangent Project as well as STAR'S END host Chuck van Zyl. Please tune in to STAR'S END for details (as well as info on other STAR'S END specific premiums) - and call in on the 10.04.09 broadcast!
This premium package is a way to support the radio station while experiencing electronic spacemusic live as it happens, in the midst of fellow STAR'S END supporters, the musicians who make the music, and the radio producers who present it, all within the comfortable and acoustically correct space of the WXPN studios. Sincere thanks to everyone who pledges for the Donor Concert premium.
