There are various costs involved in running a radio station, from server rental to website hosting and buying new music (as not all artists can afford to give their art for free) to merchandise, postage and so on.
Wyldwood Radio has in the past relied on donations and regular monthly support via PayPal from fans in exchange for an e-zine which was called Wyldspirit. This e-zine became very difficult to manage and to find regular contributors for material and so has been dropped.
Patreon Supporters (Patrons)
Whilst we still accept donations via PayPal, our regular support is now handled through Patreon, a crowdfunding platform which allows our Patrons to pledge a monthly amount, in exchange for exclusive access to Patron only interviews, reviews and articles (other items are also available). Patreon also displays how much the station is receiving every month and how many Patrons we have. It provides a space for Patrons to chat and help shape the future of Wyldwood Radio. We are very happy with this platform.
As Patreon is an American company support amounts are in US Dollars, and start from as low as $1 per month. If you are unsure of the exchange rate we recommend using xe.com which has a calculator to display the current exchange rate and how much you would be paying in your own currency. Patreon allows you to pay how you like, either with PayPal or a Credit/Debit card.
If you would like to become a Patron (or as we like to call them: ‘Superheroes’!) then you can find all the details here: patreon.com/wyldwoodradio or by clicking the logo below:
All content for our Patrons is delivered manually by us via our Patreon feed.
For those who cannot afford a monthly subscription, we accept donations via PayPal, a safe, secure service for international payments in any currency. If you would like to send a donation you can do so by clicking the button below:
However you choose to support us, we are extremely grateful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
