UPDATE: Emergency help needed! We just found out that CHIRP's antenna suffered major damage in the recent derecho storm in Chicago, despite being safe for up to 120 MPH winds. We are going to be able to stay on air by installing a temporary antenna, but we need to send the real antenna out for repair and then reinstal it. This is a (hopefully) once in a lifetime emergency and nothing we had prepared for. If you can donate even $10 to help us cover this, we would appreciate it!!!
CHIRP Radio celebrates our 10th anniversary year throughout 2020, thanks to the support and generosity of people like you! Though this isn't the way we had planned on celebrating all year long, in some ways living through a pandemic has brought home just how important CHIRP is to our community. I hear all the time from listeners who say that our DJs make them feel a little less alone in the world - we can't keep this community focused, volunteer driven radio station going without YOUR support, so please consider a gift today!
We've been here for you throughout this challenging year - now, we need you to be here for us!
This wasn't how we anticipated spending our tenth anniversary year. Instead of parties and open studio events, we've spent the last six months, one DJ at a time in a carefully disinfected studio, keeping you connected while we all worked to stay safe. We've worked hard to amplify the voices of local artists who can't play live and local venues who were first to close, and to help you feel less alone at a time when it's easy to feel distant from your community.
But we've been hanging in there, and we hope you have too. We're still here every single day, live and local, commercial-free, with great music brought to you by true music fans. If you believe in this work, and if you're able, we hope you'll support the station with a gift today.
If you would like to become a sustaining member by making a recurring donation (monthly or quarterly), or if you want to select a thank you gift, please visit CHIRP's main donation page to make your contribution (and don’t forget to enter the name of the CHIRP Volunteer or DJ in the “How did you hear about CHIRP” section so they can receive credit for your gift).
