REWARDS & WEBSITE

Hello pals!

Just a quick note to let you know we have not forgotten you! We're working hard to put together a broadcast that we can all be proud of supporting. Rewards will be sent out as soon as possible. MP3s and MDR posters are on the way. All other prizes will be sent the week following May Day. For those that signed up for the Silent Disco or Ed Bear's workshop, you'll be hearing from us in the first week of May.

We now have a simple WEBSITE where you can tune into our live stream on May 1st. We'll release the FM station number on May Day (or the day before), so be sure to check back!

On our site you will find ways that you can contribute your talents, skills and voices to the broadcast. MDR relies on the participation of the diverse and enthusiastic voices that make up New York City and the larger community that is the 99%. We hope you will contribute!

Warm regards,

May Day Rad Team

99% FUNDED

THANK YOU EVERYONE !!! 

WE 

ARE 

SO 

CLOSE.

As a little treat, check out our SoundCloud to hear MDR's unofficial anthem mixed by DJ Drumcircle. We hope to use SoundCloud as place to share content from anyone who wants to participate across our broad community of workers. Get on the mic, the mixer, or the handy recorder! Stay tuned for ways to contribute, for real.

PUMP UP THE VOLUME. ONE LAST PLEA.

We only have 24 hours left and we're $823 away from our funding target!!! We're confident that we can get there, but we'll need your help in the home stretch.

SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOP. PASS A NOTE IN CLASS. TALK ABOUT US AT THE WATER COOLER! A.K.A. SEND AN EMAIL / TWEET / FB OUR KICKSTARTER LINK.

News to brag about:

+Dan Funderburgh recently donated a limited edition illustration specifically May Day Radio!! See attached image and details below.*

+Dominic Wagner aka Cazeaux OSLO has sent us his mixtape and we promise you will have your ears and minds cracked opened by songs of playful resistance and resilience. I wish I could identify the huge range of musical influences he's included, but you'll just have to donate to find out. So good, people!!!

+Alexis Georgopoulos aka ARP also sent us a taste of what he's working on and from what we've heard, his mix is sure to help you forget what you're so mad about and just start dancing your way through your day or a menial task like moving your money from a bank to a credit union. :)

THANKS SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING EVERYONE HAS ALREADY DONE. AND IF YOU ARE JUST GETTING AROUND TO IT, IT'S NOT TOO LATE.
