Monthly Supporter

Become a detour supporting member member today! We’re ready to develop a worldwide community radio network that reaches out to give the world a voice. Presently, we provide training and support to broadcasters around the world that enable them to start their own original programming! Presently, the detour (network) is funded completely by the station’s founders and a few private donors. In order for us to continue to sustain our stations and grow, we are in desperate need of raising more money. Please consider giving just a little bit!

Helping the detour not only supports independent, community radio…but also gives your business or organization an opportunity to spread throughout the world. In exchange for a supporting any of our stations, we will be glad to thank you through acknowledgment on our site and through our station.

So why should I (or we) help the detour?

The detour (network)…

  • …features four separate commercial free stations offering music and talk programming 24/7 (and an occasional specialty channel). You have an opportunity to be featured on 4 different stations, reaching a wide range of listeners!
  • …detour MUSIC breaks the musical format barriers that have been created by corporate radio, mixing indie and main stream music into one.
  • …detour MUSIC and detour BLUES promote independent and unique music. We also aren’t just a glorified automated jukebox. We feature LIVE hosted shows from independent & original hosts. SOF Radio features live, uncut music 7 nights a week from the Acoustic Coffeehouse in Johnson City, TN.
  • …offers anyone the opportunity to get on the air and play & say what they want.
  • …brings unheard opinions that can’t be found on other radio stations.
  • …plays whatever the radio host or listeners feel like listening to
  • …hosts a wide variety of original and international shows

The money that is raised from becoming a supporting member of the detour network goes entirely (100%) towards the stations. No money ever is used to pay any staff member, going out to a fancy “business” dinner, etc.

The money is used in this order:

  • 1. The base costs of running the stations including: the listener server (like an antenna), royalty payments to artists, internet connection, hardware, music collection, live remote hardware and electricity.
  • 2. Promoting the station via: local ad’s in newspapers & magazines, etc; online ad services such as Google AdWords, Facebook flyers, etc.
  • 3. Saving the rest of it in case of an emergency (mainly equipment breakdowns).

The detour has a far greater reach than a traditional terrestrial station. By primarly being an interent radio station, we have had the opportunity to reach billions of new listeners. detour MUSIC, detour TALK, and detour BLUES are now listed in several prominent internet directories, including iTunes Radio and WindowsMedia.com.
