Epic Rock Radio has been around since July of 2004. Since it's inception, it's undergone so many changes that it isn't even recognizable from what it was back then. It started out as a way for me to listen to my favorite genre of music, that being Power and Progressive rock and metal, while at work. Ten years later, we've grown and changed, and are now (as far as I am aware) the largest and most popular Power/Prog Internet radio station in the world!

We have helped many new artists get discovered, sell their albums, and in many cases get signed by record labels. We review albums, interview artists, are in general the "go to" resource on the Internet for fans of the Prog/Power rock and metal genre to gather, chat, and share information and sometimes even talk with the artists themselves.

Sounds like we've got it made, right? From a popularity and content standpoint, yes. But, we have a problem. We've become so popular that the costs of our web hosting, streaming bandwidth, and per-play royalties to the Recording Industry Association of America are becoming more than I can handle on my own. It takes several hours each day for my staff and I to manage and maintain the station, and it's starting to be a financial hardship.

On the Epic Rock Radio website, we've always had a few donation links, but with the exception of a once-per-day audio sweeper that asks listeners to donate, we've never really pushed the idea. That's where Patreon comes in!

We're hoping that the great people who frequent Patreon and the thousands of regular listeners that we have might consider donating a little bit of money each month to help keep us up and running! We'll be using the donated money to help offset all of the surprisingly high costs of running the station, so that we can continue to provide all of the great services to artists and listeners alike.

The best thing? We're giving away bonuses to people who donate at certain tiers, including access to the Epic Rock Radio private "Inner Circle" forums, an extra request every day, and for someone who really wants to be generous and help us out, their very own sweeper/Station ID!

I think for everyone here loving ERR this could be an opportunity to give back a little bit to the makers of this great radio station. Even it is just one dollar Smiley

I for my part will support this and so can you.

The sheep has spoken. Baaaaahhhh! Wink

Would it be possbile to do a one-time donation (per year is my idea)? Thinking about sending Live365s $75 per year your way instead.

Problem is donating every month creates alot of bookkeeping for my company...

There was (is?) a paypal-account for donations before patreon was introduced. Not sure if it is still active but if it is then Kailef can tell you the details.

If a recurring donation isn't something that someone wants to do, we've got a way to do a one-time donation through PayPal:

We really do like the recurring monthly donations because our bills are monthly, but we're not going to complain!  :-)

The PayPal link seems to work just fine for me but,  Mir, is having some problems with it.  Not sure what error he's getting tho.
