**Why should you donate to The Rebel Beat and CKUT?**
Because every week we bring you the most current releases and oldie gems representing global revolutionary movements, on the radio and via podcast.
Because as far as we know it, we are the only weekly radio program of revolutionary political music out there.
Because since we launched earlier this year, we have brought you exclusive interviews from:
*M-1 of Dead Prez
*UK/Jamaican dub poetry legend Linton Kwesi Johnson
*Original rebel dread DJ Don Letts
*2-tone ska sensation Pauline Black
*Sound traveller Matana Roberts
*Baltimore MC and street medic Son of Nun
and so many more!
We keep the good tunes flowing, and the advertizing minimal. BUT, even though the show and the podcast are free, and the show runs on volunteer labour, it ain’t free. It costs a lot to run a community radio station, so every year we turn to our listeners for some cash to help us out.
Stay tuned for more info!
