Power 85 is a 100% free, full-time internet radio station devoted to Synthwave and other current, 80s-inspired musical genres.  Unlike most internet radio stations that exist solely in the cloud; Power 85 is a real, physical radio station with infrastructure, software, and hardware.  This allows us to fully control our content, and provide you with the highest quality listening experience possible.  There are no hosting providers interrupting the stream mid-song with annoying commercials (although we do play vintage 80s radio commercials from time to time for the nostalgia).

With all of this infrastructure comes costs, both in terms of a time investment as well as a financial investment, and that's why I'm asking for your support.  When you become a Patron of Power 85, you're helping to offset some of the costs of delivering the best Synthwave radio in the Universe.  You'll be helping to pay for things like bandwidth, hardware, software licensing, streaming service costs, music, etc.  You'll also be helping to improve the programming we provide over time.

Your support is greatly appreciated, you awesome human, you.

Please Note:  While I certainly endeavor to keep Power 85 up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, please understand that I am a one-man operation with a full-time day job.  Power 85 is dependent on many factors including local electricity, a stable internet connection, third-party software, third-party service providers, computer hardware and other similar dependencies that can all fail.  As such it is inevitable that Power 85 will occasionally be taken offline by a failure, usually when I'm not at home.  Murphy's Law and all that.  I make no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the availability of the Power 85 audio stream at any time, nor is any service level agreement made between patrons and Power 85.

You can notify me of any outages by tweeting @ProjectFridayFM and I will endeavor to get the stream back up as soon as I can.

Thanks for your understanding and support!
