Wouldn't you love to have the chance to speak with some of these
distinguished composers personally and probe their thoughts on music?
Well, that chance has come and gone since none of these composers are
living among us. But at radiOM.org, their voices live on in personal
interviews you can hear at the touch of your keyboard. Here you can
eavesdrop on unique conversations and concerts recorded between 1949
and 1995 at KPFA Radio in Berkeley.
However . . . we still have hundreds of programs yet to digitize and
catalogue, and your support can help us get the job done.
Furthermore, your gifts ensure that we can keep this service FREE by
helping us bear the cost of transferring programs (from reel-to-reel
tape, Betamax videotape, cassettes, and DATs) and storing, uploading
and cataloguing them.
Our goal is to keep this service FREE TO ALL, and to do so we have
relied on foundation and government sources to pay all costs. But the
work is outpacing our funding, so now for the first time we ask for
your individual understanding and support.
Sure, you can listen free, but this service does have costs we at
Other Minds must pay.
Please contribute now by making your gift via credit card online at:
Warm wishes for the holidays and the new year,
Executive & Artistic Director

short period of time we've added 108 new programs. We've also begun
