The Rebel Beat podcast 036 – Funding Drive Special!

Click here to download the podcast (Right click ‘save link as’)

Welcome back to our weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! This week it was our Funding Drive special on the show. What does that mean? It means that for the rest of the year, this podcast is gonna be 100% free. But once a year, we turn to our listeners to support The Rebel Beat and CKUT Radio, our mothership. What this means is that it keeps community in the hands of the community, and not in the hands of corporations or the state. So by donating, you’re guaranteeing more class war on the dancefloor, in your ears, and in your mind.

To make an easy donation of $1, $5, $25, or more, head over to our fundraising page, http://www.ckut.ca/donate

On the show this week, we had the amazing privilege of having Montreal afro-futurist jazzy-funk ensemble dArk mAAt’r in studio with us for a live performance. Plus we also had Frank from Submedia.TV in the house with us for our monthly collaboration! Submedia are also holding a taco-sourcing fundraising campaign right now, so head on over here and throw some change in their taco fund!

Anyways, thanks for listening to this podcast, and hopefully you’ll support us with a donation! We won’t ask you again for another year 😉

In solidarity and struggle,

The Rebel Beat

**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!
