Please support SomaFM

It's a challenge to run a commercial-free, listener supported radio station in today's economic environment. It seems like we're always begging you for money, and that's because we have to: we rely entirely on you to keep us on the air. So please, make the effort to support SomaFM. We'll be there for you, but we need your financial help.

SomaFM is entirely listener-supported and independent radio. We don't run ads because that would mean giving up our independence, plus we don't want to interrupt the music with annoying commercials. Because we don't rely on corporate sponsors or advertisers, we're free to play the best music we find. But that means we rely entirely on your support for our operational budget.

We hope that our music provides you with enjoyment, and we hope you'll offer a little something back our way to finance our continued operation. You can simply make a one-time donation, or sign up for an automatic monthly payment. Or if you want one of our premiums, choose it from our Premium Store.

SomaFM accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express (Store Only) and Paypal online; or you can also send a check or money order drawn on US Dollars.

Automatic Monthly Subscription

A simple, effective way to support SomaFM is through an automatic monthly subscription. You can cancel it at any time, and you can support us with as little as $2.99 a month. Considering that satellite and other internet music services charge between $13-20 a month, don't you think SomaFM is worth it?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express for monthly subscriptions.

Want to donate some other amount? Donate via Paypal and make it a recurring payment.

Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time (details), and there is no minimum subscription duration.

Monthly Fundraising Update

To meet our budget, we need to raise $2,840 a day for the next 11 days. So far today we've raised $733, and for the month $23,778. We still are trying to raise $31,221 more by the end of the month.

We rely on you for support!

If you value SomaFM and the music we play, please support us. We operate on a voluntary subscription model to ensure that no one is left out: we don't want to exclude someone who wants to listen but can't afford to support us financially. But if you can afford to support us, we're counting on you to do just that.

Other internet radio stations make lots of money playing 5-10 minutes of annoying commercials each hour, but that really detracts from the music we play, and if we played all those commercials, we wouldn't want to listen to our own stations!

If you think about all the great music you get to hear on SomaFM, doesn't $4.20 a month or $50 a year seem like a great deal?

We have always and will continue to operate on a sustainable financial model with no outside investors or venture capitalists to answer to, allowing us to be truly independent internet radio. Making a great radio station that you can count on is more important to us than making money, not the other way around (like most other radio stations).

(Financial support of SomaFM is not tax-deductible.)

Thanks for your support,

Rusty Hodge
Program Director and General Manager
