Many of you may already know me, but I’m Tony Kent, the founder of Around Sounds.
What started as a free 60’s radio show broadcast through Facebook has spiralled into our web platform with embedded video shows from many presenters throughout the day.
Whilst this sounds spectacular, it has come at a cost. Website hosting, live video streaming and PRS licences aren’t cheap. While I have been able to fund the start-up costs personally, if I’m to keep this platform alive and growing, it will need to be self-supporting.
My ambition was always to provide a free show for people to enjoy; subsequently, many of our shows became great comfort during the lockdown period. The interaction and relationships formed in the chatrooms which accompany our shows have connected people around the world.
We feel the best way to monetize the website is to charge a nominal fee to access the archive shows and bonus material. This way, we think it’s fair to those who cannot afford to subscribe but allows us to recover some revenue to help towards the running costs.
We hope you agree.
We have established a pricing level of £5 per month for membership access. This can be purchased using a monthly or annual subscription, click the button below to open the relevant payment page.
Payments will be converted to your local currency.
I’d like to personally thankyou for your support and look forward to seeing you in our chat rooms during the shows.
Off course we would be delighted if any of our patrons wished to make a one off donation, this money would be used to fund IT infrastructure and purchase new audio and computer equipment.
We have created this one time donation button for you to do just that.
This will take you to the Stripe website where you make a donation in multiples of £5.00.
Again we really appreciate your support.
