Your donations are used to buy independent music for WIMM radio station music!
WIMM Radio/Indie Music Bus could use your help. Indie Music Bus purchases most of the music for our radio station on iTunes or BandCamp. We receive some music for free from PR firms and other submissions. It costs a lot more than you might think to run this website and radio station every year! Your donation will be used to purchase original music produced and sold by independent artists! Indie Music Bus will cover the cost of doing business if you could help with purchasing the music.
The cost of running our site includes hosting, security & scans, domain locking, SSL certificate, Database Backups, Premium WordPress theme and plugins. The radio station is a flat monthly fee and is only reduced by the number of ad views. Sure, we could put ads everywhere, but they are just so annoying to everyone and only amount to a few pennies. We do receive advertising dollars from Live365 on occasion which helps but covers only a fraction of the operating cost for the music streaming service itself.
Any amount donated will help build the WIMM music library. If you decide to donate and would like a public shout out from our main Twitter account, @IndieMusicBus, let us know by leaving a note along with the donation. Feel free to recommend an artist for WIMM to check out in the note as well!
The music will continue, but it sure would speed up our goal to fill up the WIMM playlists. We believe supporting as many independent artists as we can is a noble cause and well worth our time. We hope you feel the same.
More radio spins will take artist promotion up a notch by exposing more musicians to more listeners. The goal of WIMM and Indie Music Bus, their friends, and affiliates is to share joy with the public. It is our pleasure to be of service to the independent music community that provides the entertainment we crave and treasure.
Thank you for reading and if you decide to donate, you are a diamond!
