Why we ask for your help
Willem and Marcel, the sole two people behind KilRock radio, are passionate music lovers, who want to share as much as great pop music with you as they can. Willem Klomps, founder of KilRock radio, pays all the bills (about $ 4,500.- a year). Willem doesn’t have any sponsors at all, believing strongly listeners don’t want to hear commercials but music.
Why supporting KilRock radio?
Listening to KilRock has an advantage or two. It is not a ’tight formatted’ radio station, where the same record passes every two hours and commercials can be heard all over the place. The 24 hour cycle of the format is designed to surprise music lovers constantly and to fit their everyday listening habits. Our choice of music is catching on, our rates are rising. So are the bills.
If you are a KilRock radio fan, please help us to stay on the air and online. Just click the ‘donate’ button below and send us a dollar or seven. Every day we manage to keep all expenses as low as possible. We are very careful with our funds. Your gift is spent only to keep the station alive and for nothing else.
But there’s an even more important reason why we ask your support.
A lot of classic pop culture will be lost if we don’t take action. The KilRock radio project is all about research, conservation and disclosure of populair cultural heritage. The project also promotes AM popradio as historical, cultural and technical heritage, connecting people from all social classes of the population.
Remember how many people listened to the offshore radiostations in Europe or the infamous Border Blasters in the US? How succesful these radio projects connected people with each other? That’s an important piece of history. We don’t want to lose this cultural heritage.
So please help us, donating just about seven bucks by clicking the button below. Thanks for for your much appriciated help.
