We are building a community radio station and we need equipment so we can start broadcasting.

About this project

We are turning up the heat! This campaign is all or nothing. If we do not meet our goal of $10,000 we will not receive any funds, so to help us get there one of our special supporters is throwing in a chance for an amazing incentive. 

In anticipation of Hopscotch Music Festival coming to Downtown Raleigh September 6 thru 9 we are presenting an opportunity for one lucky Little Raleigh Radio supporter to win a lifetime VIP pass to Hopscotch. A Hopscotch representative will be conducting a drawing and they will randomly choose the winner. Every supporter who donates at the $250 mark or higher will be entered in the drawing once. The winner will be announced Saturday September 1--- just in time for the festival!

If you want to find out how you can become more active in Little Raleigh Radio join us at our next meeting on August 27 at Kings. The meeting will start at 7:30 and after we update you on what's next we’ll open the floor to questions. It is a great opportunity to hang out and talk one on one with our volunteers. Kings is located in Downtown Raleigh at 14 W. Martin Street.

We are doing this.  We are starting a community radio station in downtown Raleigh and we are doing it legit. 

This studio will launch our internet broadcast stream and it will also prepare us to be on the air with a low-power FM signal in 2013. We need to populate the studio with more hardware than a couple of laptops and microphones borrowed from our volunteers. We are using Kickstarter to raise $10,000 to purchase gear including soundboards, CD players, turntables, microphones, speakers, cables and supportive equipment. We need your help. We believe in the value of community and we want our volunteers to be able to create community through radio.

We will be curating some amazing music and stories for you with the foundation of the station built on hyperlocalism.  Our programming will create opportunities for both the audience and producers to experience the medium of radio's power to inform, create voice, and connect. This achieved by organizing training and content that celebrates diversity in music, culture, localism, and news.

Our incentives are designed to not only thank you for believing in Little Raleigh Radio, but to allow you to showcase that you believe in this project from the very beginning. Thank you for supporting community radio.

Thank you for making Raleigh a wonderful place to live and inspiring this project.
