The CHIRP Blog



Every music fan knows the importance of the opening track. It grabs your attention. It sets your expectations. And, if it’s good, it excites you for what’s to come. On a record, side one, song one has a big job to do. For a radio station, the same can be said for year one.

The first year at CHIRP has been amazing. We’ve fought on behalf of independent radio stations and played thousands of great songs by countless bands, from around the world and here in Chicago—thanks to the enthusiastic support of listeners and donors like you.

Please help CHIRP Radio continue the work by making a donation today.

CHIRP is 100% run by volunteers. The money raised during our fundraising drives pays for equipment, supplies, lobbying and letter-writing needs, and the rent at our Ravenswood studio. As a donor, you’ll do more than enable CHIRP to stay on the air, play great music and advocate for independent radio—you’ll earn CHIRP gifts we hope you’ll wear and use proudly.

For a $60 pledge: CHIRP travel mug
For a $120 pledge: CHIRP t-shirt
For a $180 pledge: CHIRP travel mug AND t-shirt
For a $240 pledge: CHIRP messenger bag
For a $365 pledge: All three CHIRP gifts

Gifts can also be made in smaller recurring monthly increments (for as little as $10/month). And every donation, no matter the size, is important and appreciated.

2010 is CHIRP’s opening track. You’ve made the first nine months of our Year One incredibly successful. We grabbed attention, built excitement, and started strong. Now we’re counting on your generosity to help deliver what’s next!
