WXNA is well on their way to “putting the rad back in radio”
You’ve heard us talk about WXNA-FM’s, Nashville’s “Low Power, High Voltage” radio station currently fundraising to bring community radio back. You’ll be happy to know that with less than a week to go, they’re now over 80% funded!
As for what they want on the airwaves, WXNA explains, "We're talkin' Social Distortion, Diarrhea Planet, JAWWS, Bully, Charles Walker, Todd Snider, Pink Floyd songs that are too long for the other stations, bluegrass, the Sex Pistols, X, Hank Williams, Grateful Dead, and all the other stuff you're not hearing today."
They’re well on their way to “putting the rad back in radio”, but they’re not out of the woods just yet, so click on this link to send your love to their Kickstarter campaign: http://kck.st/1MMwZSv.
