Help OTRNow continue! The OTRNow Telethon Fundraiser IS ON !
Thank you for listening to OTRNow---May 2012 is our 12th Anniversary! .Our station utilizes the services of LIVE365 an independent company that charges us for the service of webcasting our programs Since our inception we have paid thousands of dollars in webcasting fees and liscensing fees to bring old time radio to the Internet. We have paid extra fees to allow our webcast to be accessed at otrnow.com, without Live365 commercials for free. We also have been supported by listeners who subscribe to Live 365's VIP service and have chosen us as their favorite station. By doing that, you have helped us devert these costs.
We recently added a weekly Podcast that became so popular, we had to stop putting up new shows because the bandwidth costs (filled by the downloading of the podcast by you) became so great that we ran out of money to fund the popularity of it! We'd like to be able to pay for making these podcasts available on a regular basis again!
Many of you have already sent us donations, that has helped us keep going through the years! Because of these listeners generous contributions, we have been able to make oldtime radio on 2 channels available every hour- 365 days a year. We thank you for that!
Recently, we have been receiving emails from people who have been saying that they cannot get on to listen. The popularity of our channels has tapped the limits of our allowable listeners. They have asked us if there was any way to increase the number of listeners to both our stations. OTRnow LIVE and Crimetime.
To allow more we need additional funds. If you chose us as one of your favorites with your LIve365 VIP membership or made a donation through our websites in the past year - you have helped enough. If you havn't-- it would help greatly if you visited our webcast page at otrnow.com ! We have a lot of listeners, and we believe that if you can afford a quarter or one dollar and a stamp- and if we can raise the money to do so, we will be able to open up our webcast to more of you.
So if you have not contributed before as a Live365 VIP member or online donation: Send what you can --- 50 cents, a dollar, 5 dollars to: OTRNow Telethon Fundraiser, P.O. Box 17148 Long Beach, Ca. 90807. We believe that if every listener donated what they could for a year of listening, we could afford our channels and Podcasts to be available to everyone. This is why we are reaching out to you now, please help us expand and open our stations to the wonders of old time radio!
So send what you can --- 50 cents, 1 dollar, 5 dollars to: OTRNow Fundraiser, P.O. Box 17148 Long Beach, Ca. 90807. We're only asking you to contribute what you can to hear oldtime radio whenever you want, so please help us out.
We decided to try this Telethon to see if we can get the funds to continue and maybe enhance these services for the entire year. We'll see what kind of support our listeners can give to make oldtime radio to everyone! You can also contibute by calling 562 595-7088, and we can take your donation over the phone.
