Resonance FM, the home of The Wire's Adventures In Sound And Music radio show, is trying to raise money to bolster its imminent application for funding to Arts Council England. To this end, the radio station wants to build reserves – savings which indicate its financial resilience and which it can draw upon in exceptional circumstances. Resonance is a multi-award winning broadcaster, but does not own a building, so has few material assets; nor does it charge for its services, so it relies on the generosity of its listeners. Please take a moment to show your appreciation of their broadcasts and secure the station's future.
If you've dug listening to what The Wire staff have played for you on the show, or if you've raved about our shows to your friends, then help us by donating directly to Resonance or via JustGiving. The Wire's show has its own target, which equals roughly fifty listeners donating £10 each. Please mention Adventures In Sound And Music so they can keep track.
As well as various on air drives, the station is hosting a series of events around London, beginning this week. A debate on the state of music journalism takes place on Monday 10 February with Andrew Mueller, Charles Shaar Murray, Jude Rogers and David Stubbs, blues and folk the following day. On 13 February Janek Schaefer, Rie Nakajima, Yuri Suzuki and Oscillatorial Binnage perform at Cafe Oto, and LV and others will be playing at the Candela until 1am. Bruce Gilbert plays as part of Bermuda Triangle's night at The Roxy on Borough High Street and the annual Resofit comedy gig this year includes Daniel Kitson, Stewart Lee, Josie Long and Lewis Shaffer. Full details on all events are at Resonance FM.
