We appreciate all of the support we get!    

We will once again soon start doing drawings for prizes as we recover from the COVID-19 shutdowns worldwide, so at this time all tiered Patreon patrons will be eligible for each future prize drawings for as long as they subscribe.

Perhaps you might think of it as a subscription fee you don't actually have to purchase in order to get anything, but the provider of the subscription in question would love it if you *did* throw in a buck or so. 


Thank you kindly for listening and for your support.

About

What is Revenge of the 80s Radio?

Revenge of the 80s Radio was created by host Chris Cordani to not only bring the great classic alternative music of 1977-91 to the radio and internet, we also play the new music from artists of the era, making the show a unique blend of distinctive quality classic music and current creations from favorite artists.
 
We also discuss the new projects with the artists; among the many guests we have had (and whose new work we feature) on Revenge of the 80s Radio are Midge Ure, Kevin Rowland, Martin Fry, Andy Prieboy, Stan Ridgway, August "Kid Creole" Darnell, Cindy Wilson, Rose McDowall, Paul Collins, Big Jim Paterson, Taco, Daniel Ash, Julie Brown and Robbie Grey.

While mainstream radio rarely offers such quality music airtime as their playlists and vision are collectively limited, Revenge of the 80s Radio continues to provide an outlet for these creations and creators with their classics.

For 12 years, Revenge of the 80s Radio has been virtually commercial-free and we want to continue to do so. We are asking our listeners for help with operational costs for the program, presence and our YouTube Channel, which currently features some of our interviews, with more 80s-based and classic alternative-based content. Therefore, we have established this Patreon Channel for those who would like to help keep us on the air and provide airtime for classic alternative artists' new music. 
 
We are not charging our listeners for any of our content, which is available through several outlets (The radio show on our website, ITunes, Google Place, TuneIn, our radio affiliates and others -- and our YouTube channel) at no cost to anyone. Yet, we still need to fund operating costs and keep this program and music strong. While we do take part in a small amount of affiliations and accept advertising through underwriting on the air and via the revengeofthe80sradio.com website, we do not wish to inundate you with commercials hawking blenders, quick fix-its or crazy newsletters.

Revenge of the 80s Radio is about the artists, their music and is an outlet for their new projects, not making people give me money to hear them. I only ask you to contribute to our Patreon page if you believe we deserve some money (even as little as a buck or two) and provide excellent content to warrant it. Even then we are not demanding or forcing you to do so; this is your choice and your choice only. We appreciate that you listen and thank you for contributing if you decide.

Who is Chris Cordani?
Please allow me to introduce myself. While not a man of wealth or taste, I am a longtime radio professional who is entering the 10th year of his Revenge of the 80s Radio podcast (which is also syndicated on terrestrial/internet stations). I produce talk programs in New York City and have worked at or with major radio stations throughout New York City, New Jersey and the Hudson Valley.

What will you be funding via Patreon? 
Revenge of the 80s Radio will continue to bring you and all of our listeners the great classic alternative music of 1977-1991, conversations with artists of the era and their new music. We will continue to grow our playlist, which has evolved into one of the largest in radio history.

We are asking your help with operations costs as we would like to continue to increase our on-air presence and affiliate list, we will expand the production of video content on our YouTube channel (complete with interviews, fun lists and some 80s-era special videos). Contributions will be re-invested into the show.

We also plan to provide tour information on our website, www.revengeofthe80sradio.com.
 
Might we also create a full internet radio station for Revenge of the 80s Radio? That would be the alternative to the outlet I described in the last paragraph.
As for perks, I do not want to withhold content just to squeeze money out of anyone, so I am not starting out with a tiered program as even a few bucks is appreciated kindly as a "thank you" for providing content you enjoy and bring you some music you will likely not hear anywhere else.

For those who offer $10 per month or more, we would include you on the list of patrons in future YouTube videos and on our website, Revengeofthe80sradio.com

Thank you for listening.
