You have rammed $5 down our g-string, even though we didn't ask you to - so you're getting mentioned on the next episode again AND getting episodes of Chart Music a day earlier than everyone else. And a croggeh on Simon's magic stick.
About Chart Music
If you’re looking at this, ta very much and congratulations: you know who we are (a podcast run by a collective of former Melody Maker writers, hosted by someone who wasn’t), and you know what we do (take one random episode of Top Of The Pops – the UK’s greatest music TV programme – and pull it to bits). You seem to like what we do. And we want to do more of it.
We’re getting on for 50 episodes of Chart Music now, and we know – because loads of you have told us – that they’re MINT and SKILL. So we’d like to ensure that we keep doing them for a very long time, and we need your help. Here’s where we stand at the moment:
1. THESE THINGS TAKE AGES TO PUT TOGETHER
At the moment, you don’t want to know how long these episodes take to put together. We want to take whatever money you care to chuck at us and turn it into a massive stick, which we can ram up our collective arses to spur us on to get new episodes out regularly.
2. WE WANT TO KEEP GOING
We've only just scratched the surface with this.
3. ACTUALLY, WE WANT TO DO MORE THAN JUST KEEP GOING
We have plans, put it that way.
IMPORTANT: This will never be a 'give us some money or we'll stop doing it' thing. We'll still be knocking out episodes, but we'd like to cover our costs, start pumping episodes out like clockwork, and supplement our meagre incomes as writers.
