Permalink Hardware Fundraising target North Sea Surf Radio has been reached!

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

Dear all,

After figuring out the ideal required hardware configuration for the future of NSSR we now have a goal of $ 595,-. This will give us the ultimate configuration and prevent total crashes like this to ever happen again.

At first we wanted to do this through a website like kickstarter but all these crowdfunding websites charge ridiculously high handling fees, especially for payments with credit cards. On top of that after reaching your goal they will take two weeks of paying out.

We have therefore chosen to go for a fundraising through Paypal and through a donation compilation given to us by The Phantom Four.

Especially for this purpose The Phantom Four has donated 15 tracks for a donation compilation on Bandcamp which include 5 brand new tracks from the upcoming album which will be released June 14th. Anybody donating at least $ 15 will be able to download this album and be among the first to hear these 5 new tracks. The compilation can be found here
http://thephantomfour.bandcamp.com/album/north-sea-surf-radio-hardware-fundraiser

For donations lower than $ 15 or for those not interested in this compilation Donations via Paypal can be sent to newhardware@northseasurfradio.com.

I will be posting regular updates with the status of the donations and will let you know when we have reached our goal.

Thanks in advance for all your support.
I hope you like our new tracks.

Best regards,

Niels Jansen

Update:
$ 115 raised so far thanks to Dominik, John, Noel & Uwe!
Thanks guys!
$ 480 to go...

p.s. We already had a $ 100 donation from Rick that came in the moment things went wrong. That has been used to set up the temporary hardware solution, something which will remain a very necessary backup. So thanks to Rick for making this possible!

I think you'll end up with a lot more than $595. Thanks for making the new Phantom Four music available, I've been anxious to hear it ever since it was announced. Cheers

It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times

I was ready to donate anyway, and the fact that I can get this download including 5 new tracks is an unexpected gift and very classy idea on the part of the band. I'm already enjoying the music and happy I can be a small part of helping the station get up and running.

I look forward to getting the full release of the new album next month.

81.9/109MB downloaded. Can't wait!
