Fall Pledge Drive Preview

It’s that time of year again, folks. Our 2013 Fall Pledge Drive has arrived!

However this Pledge Drive is slightly different. We want you to tell us how you support independent music, whether it be through monetary donations to help keep our station running, repping Radio 1190 gear at shows, or tuning in and being a part of the Radio 1190 community, there are so many ways that you can show us how much the station means to you.

So, without further ado, here are the premiums we have up for pledges next week:

One of the greatest parts about Radio 1190 are the ticket gives. And Pledge Drive is no different. All of our tickets are priced at or below face value (NO service fees) and all of your contribution goes directly to the station to help us continue to bring you the best independent music.
