Your weekly LGBT radio show Out In South London is aired on London’s art community radio station Resonance FM. In order to continue providing the kind of radio that you cannot find anywhere else, it needs listener donations.
All programme-makers and the studio engineers give their time for free. There are just three and a half paid employees at the station. There are probably more people employed to make tea for You and Yours.
Resonance FM’s staff keep the station running and the studio up to scratch, they make sure the antenna safely on top of a tall building near London Bridge, run special events and outside broadcasts and commission new shows and secure the charitable foundation and Arts Council funding that provides the bulk of the station’s income. As well as a very modest staff bill, Resonance has to pay rent on its small premises, pay various broadcast license fees and keep all the studio equipment working.
The station’s fundraising target is £30,000 by the end of this fundraising week.
If everyone who regularly listens to Out In South London gave just £3, that would meet half the fundraising target for the whole station.
