You may be aware--or you may not--that we are in the middle of our very shortened fund raising month. I know that many of you have tuned in to our program---the program that Ron Olesko and I co- produce and host.
I will be the first to say that there is variety in the things that Ron and I do. Hopefully, you enjoy both---and that some of you like some of the programming more than the other.

However---that said-- We urge you to pledge on line at

It is a secure pledge, but please mention which program it is for.

I plan to have some wonderful guests in the coming weeks and months--Lisa Moscatiello (who will blow you away) for one---Ron, too, has some great guests and specials planned. Frank Hamilton among many others.   

The bottom line is---to keep this kind of programming on the air and on the web---===we need you. Please pledge on line at the above address---or of you are in our area please call between 3-6 PM ET on Sunday and I will be happy to talk with you and take your pledge and your thoughts.

Our basic membership is $50.00---but please pledge whatever you feel you can afford and what is appropriate.

I thank you for your support.

I don't know about the internet pledges---I am not privy to that at tnis point. But---our call ins were great.

Loyal listeners and new ones too. So, to them---thanks.

The web---if you did pledge---thanks. Unfortunately I don't at this point have access to the on line material yet. But if you did---thanks. If not===well--no thanks.

Programs like this stay on the air provided they pull their weight and come up with comparible figures to the ones that do---and I can tell you right now that Gospel, Singer/ Songwriter and Bluegrass do.

Our web address is above(in the prvious e mail) and the fundraiser continues for only one more week. Then we shall see where we stand in relation to staying in our slot. Or is it niche?.

Bill Hahn

I often listen to Traditions and I can say that the music I hear is superior to the stuff found on comercial radio. This program is one of a few in a vast market that plays the music of folkies and delivers mini documentaries about the music and musicians and/or folks devoted to folk music. I know Ron and Bill are volunteers and produce their programs at personal expense because of their commitment. Traditions has the potential to reach millions of listeners but no dobut has a much smaller audience. It deserves to be supported. During yesterday's fundraiser, they played a spot of Brittany Spear's music. It was intended to be a mockery of the genre. I had a viseral reaction leading me to make a pledge so that my listening choices weren't reduced. Hey, send them a sawbuck or maybe a few. We have a collective responsibility to support the music we love.

I echo my co-host's comments.   We really appreciate the support - both your financial donations and the wonderful comments.   It is good to know that some people are listening!!! Thank you all!
