Please, please consider a donation to keep our little radio station alive. Co-op Radio is completely sponsored by listeners, no huge government or corporate funds. Each show asks its supporters to kick in to keep the whole affair on the air. We need to earn $700 a year for our share of CFRO's budget. Get an online membership at www.CoopRadio.org, and tell them Accordion Noir sent you. Please email us if you donate too, so we make sure squeezeboxes get credit!
If you make a donation, you can win a prize!
Grand Prize: for the first "Omnindirectional" donation to CFRO of $102.7 or a monthly sustainer donation of $10 or more.
Jason Webley's totally out of print, "How Big is Tacoma/Cereal at Night" 7" (with CD too) single from 2005. Very cool, limited edition (#146 of 1,111). Collectible blue/pink vinyl (what's that?), with a scratch-n-sniff card (that does not smell like Tacoma), awesome. http://www.jasonwebley.com/music_tacoma.html
