Our Spring 2017 Membership Drive begins April 5th! 88Nine thrives because listener support (that’s YOU!) powers the music. Think of your Membership in Radio Milwaukee as a celebration of, tribute to, and investment in the music and city you love. We certainly do! And we’ve made becoming a Member especially affordable with our Sustaining Memberships that break your contribution into monthly payments, while still getting the same Member benefits at each level.
Please take this chance to become a new Member, or renew your Membership today, before our Membership Drive begins! Your early generosity will mean fewer days of fundraising on the air… AND a chance to win a trip to Atlanta for the Shaky Knees Music Festival, including airfare, admission, and more.
Check out the Thank You gifts we’re offering this spring (and an extra perk for brand new Members!) Please note gifts are cumulative, meaning that at each Member level we add on the gifts from the lower levels.
General Admission Member ($88.90 or $7.41/month) The Studio Milwaukee Vol. 6 CD features 17 tracks by artists like Spoon, El Vy, Field Report and more, recorded live at Studio Milwaukee Sessions.
Main Floor Member ($120 or $10/month) Our listener-chosen throwback design is featured on our Spring 2017 t-shirt and comes with all $120+ ($10/month) donations!
Balcony Member ($180 or $15/month) At the $180+ ($15/month) level, we’re offering this 88Nine canvas tote. Take Radio Milwaukee grocery shopping with you!
Front Row Member ($240) With all donations of $240+ ($20/month), you will receive our limited edition zip lightweight sweatshirt celebrating our 10th birthday!
VIP Member ($500+ or $41.67/month) Guarantee your spot at all Studio Milwaukee Sessions for the next 12 months, and get each gift listed above, when you make a contribution of $500+ ($41.67/month)! In 2016 we held over 25 Sessions. Recent artists include: Amos Lee, Charles Bradley, Brett Dennen, Car Seat Headrest and more; many are featured on the Studio Milwaukee Volume 6 CD.
*Special extra for brand new Members! If you’ve been meaning to give, consider becoming a Member this spring. The first 75 brand new Members that give at the $60 level or above, on or before April 4th, will receive an extra thank you gift – this 5 panel 88Nine baseball hat!
