Radio Sidewinder is a internet radio station set in the Elite Dangerous universe.  It's a radio station with a space theme. We broadcast a mix of music, news, information, inverse adverts and inverse discussions.

We have now got to the point where we need financial help in order to expand and improve our service.

We broadcast 24 hours a day, seven days a week to complement and entertain Commanders on their journeys and adventures.  We include GalNet news and report on in-game player events and info.

Radio Sidewinder now attracts thousands of Commanders/listeners per month and whilst this success is fantastic it does bring with it the problem of bandwidth usage and the constant demand for new, up-to-date content.

We need new equipment (hard drives, microphones) and more bandwidth.  But we also need to spend time in sourcing new music, writing scripts, recording, editing audio files, station planning, scheduling and general management.  Everything a normal radio station would do, but with a group of volunteers that are from all over the world and who also have proper jobs!

There are so many things we want to do to improve Radio Sidewinder but in order to do that we need some monetary investment and a whole lot of time. Devoting time to Radio Sidewinder means we have to sacrifice time that would normally be used to earn a living, actually play ED or time with the family. The time spent managing an international team of volunteers and creating new content is now eating into "work time" that pays the bills.

We aren't expecting to get paid a salary but want to cover our costs and some of the time we are investing into this project. We hope you understand and get enough enjoyment from Radio Sidewinder to want to donate a small amount each month. 

We want to:

  • Have a regular "audio space opera"
  • Find new musicians and add more music
  • Investigate having some music made especially for us
  • Have DJ slots
  • Music themed hours
  • More interviews
  • More inverse ads
  • Competitions and giveaways

If you want this too, then please donate.

Thanks for reading and fly safe commander.
