    The station currently has no sponsors. The recession has forced my sponsors to pull back, when the station is listened to by more people that ever before. I am doing a pastoral internship (which you do for free) so I am making no money at the moment.

    If you would like to help, on the main page of the website, there is a donation button. Better yet, if you would like to reach thousands of listeners a month for $100 (about £65) a month (one advert an hour 24/7 - professionally produced) I would glad to take on some new sponsors.

    In the 5+ years I have been running this station, it has really grown. I have well over 350 brass band CDs. But to keep the music fresh, I must buy new CDs and ad new tunes and drop poorly rated ones.

    I love working on the station. I have to match the tune with a cover and do many things. Please donate if you would like to help. Sponsors who have brass band items to sell this is great and very targeted advertising.

    I would like to thank Lake Music for donating 4 CDs this month. That was very generous of them. Support the bands and those who sell the CDs by buying them. Copying music is just wrong - it hurts the bands and all involved.

    It has been almost 6 years, and the station has thousands of listeners. But I have lost my job and my wife wants a divorce. I cannot afford such an expensive hobby. No one stepped up to advertise -- so enjoy it the last few days.

    It goes off the air no later that Sept 1.

    This is so sad, I was only listening yesterday. Your station was a great way of finding about band music I'd never heard of, as well as listening to classics. I guess people will only miss it when it's gone. Hope things get better for you.

    Kind of you to say. I needed only a sponsor or two to make it work. I have asked everyone I know and many and do not. In bad economic times, people pull back on advertising, despite if it is successful or not.

    The good news is, my wife is not making me leave. The bad news is, I have not had a job since I left the hospital after nearly dying. My wife then needed surgery and our financial situation dropped like a rock.

    Hosting is easy. Paying the licensing fees, and buying CDs is VERY expensive. I charge 25% of what the internet fee charts recommend. Still, no one wants to advertise. In fact, most do not even answer my email requests.

    I have loved it. But without long term sponsors, I cannot carry on.

    Thanks to all

    I forgot my password (maybe one of the admins can help) to my "DocFox" account and since I changed emails, I cannot get it. If you want me, my new email is DrJAFox@gmail.com

    All I need to keep the station going is one or two sponsors. Anyone interested, use the email above and contact me.

    Good News! I got one sponsor. I really need two, but with one I can keep the station going. Yeah! If some mod would help me by changing the email on my old account, I would appreciate it.
