Hello Nash Holos fans. Вітаю! Welcome to our Patreon page.

Thank You for your interest in supporting Nash Holos Ukrainian Roots Radio!

The show and podcast have been free these past years (almost three decades, actually). Funding the show out of my own pocket was my own choice, and it gave me the freedom to follow my vision for the show. And over the years, the support of sponsors and advertisers has helped cover some of the bills. So, I have no regrets.

But, after almost 30 years of this great gig, retirement beckons!

Before I hang up my mic and sail off into the sunset, however, I would like to give Nash Holos listeners the opportunity to keep the show going, and ensure its perpetuity for future generations.

This is why I have launched this Patreon page. Basically it's to gauge whether, in this new "long tail" economy, there is sufficient listener interest to attract and support a new generation of broadcast professionals to take over the show.

Here is what your money is needed to help pay for:

1: Tools of the Trade 
  • Recording equipment 
  • Software
  • Computers
  • Podcast hosting
  • Website hosting
  • Website maintenance
  • Office overhead & expenses
2: Hired Help
  • Production Assistance
  • On-air Talent
  • Technical assistance (audio engineering, IT)
  • Marketing & Promotion
  • Administration
3. Travel Expenses
  • To represent Nash Holos at festivals and community events
  • To conduct research for show content
  • To attend industry events

History of Nash Holos:
It's been an exhilarating ride since my first step into a radio station back in 1990. I do believe the show has provided value for listeners, based on the feedback I've received over the years. Some people even grew up with Nash Holos, I've been told. That makes it all worthwhile! I'll retire with very fond memories and a feeling of accomplishment.

Timeline of the show:
1990: Debut on AM1470 CJVB Radio, Vancouver
1996: The first incarnation of Nash Holos went off the air
2000: The show  was revived on radio station AM1320 CHMB Radio, Vancouver.
2001: Nash Holos went online as a podcast
2009: PCJ Radio took Nash Holos into international syndication, distributing the show to 20+ countries on all five continents via AM, FM and shortwave radio and via satellite
2012: Debut on 101.7FM CHLY Radio, Nanaimo 
2019: ??? 

The future of the show:
It all depends on you, the listeners of Nash Holos. Once I retire, which could be as early as next year, Nash Holos will go off the air forever. Unless there is enough listener support to keep it going forward. Or, unless someone makes me an offer I can't refuse. I am open to both options. Meanwhile, the show remains on the air to fulfill contractual obligations to current sponsors and advertisers.

Your support: 
Every little bit helps. Whatever you can afford to donate, and/or deem a fair exchange for the show, is appreciated. Your financial support, more than anything now, will help determine how much longer Nash Holos continues to entertain and inform the listening public about things Ukrainian. 

In return for your support, you will become a Patron and receive rewards based on the tier that corresponds to your monthly contributions. Check them out!  

Thank you for listening to the show, for supporting Nash Holos, and for coming to this Patreon page.
