For a lot more on this, please have a look at the manifesto.
Here's the plan:
1) Get established as a reliable source of quality music.
With this approach, we hope that, over time, you'll will get to know and trust that our commitment to fine quality music is a genuine one. And you can then recommend AbstractRadio to your friends, and so on, helping us slowly build up an appreciative following of happy listeners.
2) Crowd-funding our early steps.
So, to escape this, AbstractRadio hopes to crowd-source the funds from you - our lovely and fantastically generous listener - to help support the first six months of broadcasting by covering its running costs. And over these first six months, we intend to develop and expand a following large enough to give the station enough market presence to allow us to sell advertising space here on the website (and so keep the broadcasts ad. free) - hurrah!
3) Get in touch and get involved.
"Large streams from little fountain flow, tall oaks from little acorns grow."
Honestly, what could possibly go wrong?
