WELCOME TO MY PATREON!

Back in June of 2017, we celebrated the 9th anniversary of  The Americana Rock Mix! In "internet years" that makes me... old enough to know better. But here I am, asking for your help! 

Now, I'm not asking you to start paying me for what I've been doing for free for the better part of a decade. I'm simply asking for your help in keeping the podcast moving forward.

The cost of doing a podcast isn't free. Once upon a time it was, but people (media hosts, website hosts, etc.) got greedy. And, on top of that, equipment (microphones, hard drives, digital recorder, etc.) gets old and used, and needs to be repaired/replaced/updated. 

And THAT is what your help is needed for. I'll be doing the show regardless, but I can only do it as long as my technology allows me.

This is the biggest reason I'm raising the money. My current digital recorder is dying a slow death. A new multi track recorder will make it easier for my to records episodes with multi source music inputs, co-hosts, and musicians. It's one of the basic and essential parts of what I do.
