OB Sponsors the 99% Boston show on unregular radio station for 1 year.
For the past few months the affinity group producing the “99% Boston” show on OBR’s “working class Wednesdays” has been working towards getting the show to a much larger audience. It’s a show that breaks barriers by allowing people to speak about serious politics and be taken seriously without having to use the vernacular of the upper class. It’s been a place for people who were actually at Dewey Square to share their stories and perspectives. The regulars on the show are people that have also been at other actions such as the anti-NATO protest in Chicago, Occupy Congress, Occupy the Primaries, the mayday action in NYC, and more.
The show will be moving to the popular online radio station, unregular radio. This provides an opportunity to bring the real occupy stories and perspective from people that lived at the Occupy Boston camp to a much larger audience. We’re asking for OB to sponsor the show for a full year at a cost of $4420. As a sponsor the show would be a constant ad for anything to do with OB.
Each show is $85. Total asking amount $5000.
The remainder of funds not going to studio costs go directly to promotions such as flyers, t-shorts, etc.
