Like a lot of people, I'm passionate about music. I'm also passionate about potential, about new music. I used to despair at the lack of access to great music (lousy radio and now safe apps that keep it cozy): We all like the music we latched onto when we were 13-17. Fine, and yet, creativity didn't stop, people all over the world are making wonderful music, new music of every kind, that is as good or better than what we each know and love.

I started out with a reel-to-reel tape recorder taping the latest singles from the juke-box at University then DJ-ing parties with the reels playing between records (and allowing me to vault over and join in the dance when I wanted). Then, finding myself employed running a bank's computers I started The Recorded Music Society and hired out pubs where I played The Stranglers' "Peaches" immediately after Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto #2 - punks and bankers - bonkers!

After John Peel died and Mixing It got axed, there was a void. I tried to fill that: 8 years later my show was listened to in 80+ countries weekly, as I brought music from 1000's of sources together for a weekly distillation of 2 hours. It takes a lot of work, databases, filters, communication and dedication and it costs money.

I keep hearing from people who want the show back - it was selected as the best place anywhere on the internet to hear new music by Louder Than War - To bring back the show I need to, at least, cover my costs (up to $50 a week not including my 10-25 hours).

So please become a Patron - it's straightforward, and you control it - all amounts are much appreciated.

Let's get the show back on air!

PS: Later we can do bigger things - a new studio, studio sessions, a world educational tour! Music is hope, music is both descendent and transcendent... I love it.

PPS: This is my MUSIC page - To get to all my Patreon's for all I create (and more ridiculous videos) https://www.patreon.com/zaphmann?ty=h

Thanks for this comment:
Het beste muziekprogramma dat ik in tijden heb gehoord, ik ontdekte het een aantal jaar geleden en ontdekte daardoor weer heel wat nieuwe, goede en spannende muziek; wat zou het mooi zijn als het weer terugkwam.

You'll put me back on air - on the internet via a secret live feed and restart the podcasts. Anywhere from 80 to 1000 listen to my shows so there should be enough of you, you are one who steps up. You'll get my patron-only emails and access to the patron-only feed, where we'll all talk about it together.

The above, plus you're saying either "have a beer on me_, or "here, this is for that one thousand quid of raw costs" +  You'll get access to the patron-only feed, as above, where we converse, and you'll also be DIRECTLY emailed keepable/playable/readable downloads of any content (PDFs, Mp3s, etc) - things I can't get onto the show.

This would be lovely and substantial support, the above AND  you'll be in the "random surprise" group. I'll email you random surprises every once in a while, including ephemeral and experimental art and ideas that i don't want out in the public, including photos and poetry that aren't for the general public.

This is a lot of money to spend backing my music exploits, you are really showing me some serious respect here. This would open up possibilities in the wider scheme of things - studio - tours etc. You'll get all of the above, random surprises + extras etc..., plus first access to special rewards in my specific sub-campaigns (e.g. in artwork, opportunities to buy/bid before others). I'll also set up a closed group with you to discuss the outputs and get your insights, thoughts an opinions. note: these discussions will be open to the wider patron base *later*, because everyone here is being generous.

(inner circle - limited to 14) - I think they call this an Angel Investor. That would be stunning, make a huge impact on my life and really enable me to be fully creative and free. You'll get all of the above...patron-feed, random surprises, first looks, of course i'll thank you personally, plus I'll send something special I've created to you

We'll spend weekends, discuss theories, art, I'll paint you or DJ your wedding/party; we'll argue, sing, dance, get to know each other, all the things above and below; and here and now.
Goals
$42 – reached! per Podcasts
Co-incidentally - or actuarially - this amount would cover all my basic costs evened out over a year : podcast/web hosts, connectivity, equipment, stream host etc...
