G’s Melody Cafe…Your Soul Food for Music, an independent, non-profit internet radio station with 24/7 uninterrupted streaming, has launched a fundraiser with logo’d merchandise to keep them broadcasting. The online station provides FREE music for everyone to maintain communities better through the expression of music and spoken words.
G’s Melody Cafe…Your Soul Food for Music broadcasts new and exciting music every day to help emerging musicians reach new heights and make good music accessible to everyone. The music they stream reaches fans in every corner of the world, including England, Africa, Japan, Brazil, and the Philippines.
The recently launched fundraising effort is needed as the station does not receive government-subsidized monies or NPR money, instead, the budget is entirely supported by listeners via private fundraising efforts.
All funds raised through this latest campaign will be transferred directly to G’s Melody Cafe…Your Soul Food for Music so it can continue to purchase recording artists’ music. Music licensing fees are another major expense. It entails paying fees to licensing bodies for nonexclusive rights to broadcast music. The station obtains music licenses (and provides “blanket” coverage) from ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, Re: Sound, PPL, and PRS.
It employs automatic royalty reporting through Sound Exchange, allowing the artists to get paid when their songs are broadcasted. Steady cash flow is also crucial for carrying out advertisement activities that help the radio station grow. Other basic expenses include the costs associated with computer equipment, Webhosting services, and website updating.
To support this fundraiser you can buy merchandise from G’s Melody Cafe…Your Soul Food for Music that includes Hoodie Sweat Shirts, Crewneck Sweat Shirts, Long Sleeve Tees, 3/4 Baseball shirts, and Premium Unisex Classic Tees.
