Greetings to all who have supported and contributed to our broadcasts .
I have been producing these Dub ReVoluTion Radio Broadcasts for ten years now, the show started about 2005 on legendary Bristol Pirate station BS1, and not long after i started posting shows to the internet, when the station got busted we found a large audience online thru podcast sites like podomatic and itunes recieveing up to 30000 hits on some of the shows , but it not about hits, i reckon literally hundreds of people have had a direct involvement in the show , too many to name them all, but poets , muscians, mc’s and singers have featured in the shows , from the start we always tried to involve fresh talent not seeking after big names but instead encouraging and developing our own pool of talented people. and working with people who have a un developed talent building confidence and creativity , many people have held a mic for the first time with Dub ReVolution and have gone on to other projects. the studio has always been availabile for people to use, recording demos and various overdubs.
Always the technology has been basic, the early shows ramshakly so cobbling together cables from skips and found microphones to produce a raw lofi sound , but this has improved over the years and in the last 3 years with some kind donations and lends of quality equipment we have started to produce something i am proud of , raw live dub style mixing in effect with contributions from
an amazing crew of committed inspirational people and random guests coming together every Thursday night to share a creatiVe positive space, having fun together and being enpowered and healed thru the music and vibes we share. .
The show has always been free to listen to and download and we have never been paid by any of the stations we have broadcast thru, we have been offered sponsership or advertising but we always rejected such offers
However now here we are asking for money! , the reason is a double tech failure of dj mixer and soundcard and service work urgently needed on record deck , we have had some kind donations of a pc and a laptop that should sort our streaming problems and been running some tests and hopefully we will be back on air soon with a basic set up, begged and borrowed and recycled but long term the things that are broken need replacing and if we are to keep broadcasting every week we need to invest in some new kit . So i put together a wish list and i asking all supporters who can spare some cash to donate . Don’t worrry if it not much, everything helps and if you haven’t got a penny just share some love and if you haven’t got any love come and dance with us.
New Dj MiXer – £300
New soundcard- £100
New Cartridges and styluses for decks – £120
New Microphone – £80
Obviously we will buy cheaper alternatives if these targets are not met or continue with current low grade options but the soundcard , dj mixer and work on the deck are essential asap for the show to continue. So please my friends share some prosperity with us if you can and we will keep streaming positive vibrations to you.
