March 26, 2006: Please Support SAR!
Thanks to those who've made donations to the cause this week. We are in the middle of our very first proper fundraiser for the show, and I'm very thankful to those of you who have made donations. Every little bit counts, and its hugely encouraging as well. Its a shame that money has to be taken into consideration, but I've finally accepted that fact and am asking for listener support...
The podcast this week is our fundraiser special, so there's no artist feature - just a request for support! If you're a fan of the show and appreciate all the hard work that goes into it's production and distribution, please consider making a donation at our website. Using paypal, the financial transaction is quick and easy (and safe), and there are several different thank-you gifts to choose from, as well.
Check it all out at: www.some-assembly-required.net/support.html
You can also support the show with a check or money order - just send your donation to:
Some Assembly Required
2751 Hennepin Ave. S. (#145)
Minneapolis, MN 55408
Be sure to include a note about which thank-you gift you'd like to receive!
The playlist this week includes tracks by the following artists:
The Bran Flakes, John Oswald, Myeck Waters, Osymyso, Team 9, People Like Us, The Evolution Control Committee, Splatt, DJ Zebra, Negativland, Table Tones in Head Space, Think Tank, Twink, Cassetteboy, Times Up, The Tape-beatles and Party Ben -- representing a wide variety of sample based music, as always. I love spending the time coming up with diverse playlists, featuring artists using samplers and playback equipment to create new works of sound collage - help support the cause, by visiting the SAR website and making a donation.
What more can I say? Thanks again to those of you who have already supported the program - it really means a lot. Stay tuned for the new podcast in just a few, and be sure to check out the blog next week, for the SAR Q&A with Jason Forrest, aka Donna Summer...
Thanks for listening!
