Lumpen Radio Summer Swag-A-Thon!!!
In an age of instant gratification via mobile devices, uberization and grubhubbin, we forgot how difficult it is to build a real physical tangible transmission platform using technology from the 20th century.
We didn’t think it was going to be so hard. We didn’t think it would take so long! With your help we raised enough funds to hire an engineering firm, buy transmission equipment, build a new station studio and pay for architectural drawings, building permits, and engineering plans.
But we are still short on funds. We have been forced to relocate our transmission cabinet and have to start all over again. We have to cut down trees, build a concrete pad, install our gear again, pay for new electrical service and the final antenna installation.
So this is it, Lumpen Radio Listener. We are on the final stretch towards getting on the air so we can broadcast live on 105.5 FM throughout the Chicago land airwaves. Are you with us? Yes you are!
Help us get this done! Buy some stuff during our Summer Swag – A – Thon. It ends August 1, 2016.
We will start shipping in the beginning of August. If we’re lucky we will be on the air and we can all wear our t-shirts at the launch party. Thank you.
