X-plosive Radio: WXNA-LPFM Nashville!

$55,310

WXNA “Low Power, High Voltage” is Nashville’s new listener-supported community radio station! Formed by a group of experienced community radio deejays, WXNA wrested a Construction Permit from the Federal Communication Commission to broadcast at 101.5 FM from downtown Nashville, but we need your help to get the station on the air and bring exciting and diverse music and cultural programming to the airwaves of Music City!

Imagine you’re in your car, driving to work in the morning, listening to the radio. A Patsy Cline classic of country heartache wafts from the speakers, followed by a punch of powerful punk rock, and then a butt-shakin’ groove of deep Southern soul. It’s a mixmaster of styles and yet each song flows into the next in a way that makes sense—guided by a deejay with a plan and personality, rather than the cold order of “random play.”

The day we received our official FCC Construction Permit was a very, very happy day over at WXNA HQ (aka The Gerst Haus).

At lunchtime you go for a walk. The music app on your phone delivers an hour of deep catalog R&B and jumpin’ jive—including many songs you’ve never heard before, even though you tune into this program every week.

On the way home, it's brand new music from some of the finest up-and-coming talent Nashville has to offer—rock, Americana, folk, hip hop and more. Spiced with lively talk, community-based news, engaging programming from non-profit partners like Open Table Nashville, and the latest on the local live scene. Then, late at night, you wind down with some cool jazz and smooth talk from a velvet-voiced deejay that never fails to mellow you out and warm up a cool night.

Board member Roger Blanton designed our awesome new logo which we unveiled on Record Store Day.

Around the clock, there will be one place on the dial to turn to for the liveliest music, talk, cultural programming and information—all flowing from one awesome radio station, WXNA-LPFM Nashville, "Low Power, High Voltage Radio!" Radio the way it was meant to be—exciting, diverse, informative, unpredictable, and most of all, programmed by real human beings.

Nashville has long been synonymous with great music—and today, its music scene is bigger and better than ever, with scores of live venues and hundreds of musicians working in all styles to create some of the greatest music in the world. But for Nashville radio, it’s a different story.

The Basement East helped us get the ball rolling with our first official fundraising event.

The corporate and market research-driven “sameness” that has infected the majority of American airwaves also rules in Music City. There are rare exceptions, but now is the time to realize our dream—truly independent, listener-supported freeform radio that reflects the full range of Nashville’s music and culture.

WXNA-LPFM will broadcast at 101.5 MHz FM with an effective power of 100 watts, along with simulcasting on the web to reach a worldwide audience. WXNA’s FCC-granted Construction Permit calls for an on-air date of no later than June 4, 2016, so we need your help NOW to build our studio, raise our broadcast tower, and make great Music City radio a reality. WXNA-LPFM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all donations are tax deductible. Pledge your support today and help light the fuse for X-plosive community radio in Music City!

As you might imagine, building a radio station (so cool) isn't an easy process, nor a short one. And we've already accomplished a lot. We need your help today to take it to the next stage! On the big to-do list there are only three more items to check off, and raising the money is a big one. But with your financial support, we'll be knocking the final two out like SHAZAM! And won't that be an awesome thing?

✓ Register as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization 

✓ Get our broadcast license from the FCC 

✓ Get our construction permit from the FCC 

✓ Find an experienced engineer who can help us with the technical stuff 

✓ Find the perfect place to put the antenna

__ Raise funds and buy equipment (antenna, transmitter, turntables, microphones, etc.) 

__ Get on the air 

__ Be awesome!

Risks and challenges

We have every confidence that WXNA will be live on or before June 2016. With our FCC Construction Permit in hand, a good-looking and experienced board of directors, and the support of Nashville’s great music and arts community, one could almost say it’s a sure thing!

Once WXNA takes to the air, the ongoing challenge will be to stay on the air and continue to thrive. Building a truly great community-oriented, listener-supported freeform radio station is only the first destination in an ongoing journey. Continuous love and attention as well as a steady cash flow will be necessary to keep WXNA moving forward.

Our current budget and fundraising goal will enable us to build the station, purchase the proper equipment and pay for our first few months of operating expenses. After that, we will rely on listener memberships, underwriting, and fundraising events to cover the monthly bills and any future expansions. We have researched (and experienced!) how other great stations operate, and we are fully confident in our ability to guide WXNA through this initial fundraising campaign and onwards to a bright and lengthy future!

The care and feeding of WXNA will be an ongoing job, not only for the board of directors, staff and volunteers but also for each and every listener and supporter of the station. We’re committed to the task, and we hope you’ll join us on this amazing journey!

    Our friend John Davis from all your favorite bands--Superdrag, The Lees of Memory, Epic Ditch, Punchwagon, and The Used-To-Be among others--wants you to experience WXNA.

    To that end, he’s offering his original painting entitled “Once I Thought I Was Pitching A Baseball To Jimi Hendrix” for this one-of-a-kind reward. You can check it out here:

    http://www.wxnafm.org/johndavis

    Originally created as part of an exhibit celebrating Dock Ellis’ LSD-fueled no-hitter, this portrait is acrylic on board and measures 24”x48”. We like to think it celebrates WXNA getting our start in Nashville just like Hendrix did back in the 60s.

    Turn your favorite artist into a work of art!

    This is another reward offered by our friend John Davis. In addition to being an incredibly talented musician, John is also an incredibly talented visual artist. With your pledge, he’ll create an original painting of your favorite musician from an image of your choosing. The Beatles on Ed Sullivan? Wanda Jackson in her fringed dress? Alex Chilton lighting a cigarette? The choice is yours. You can check out his work here:
