THREE New Dirty Roots Radio Podcasts

Dear friends,

The time has come for a new chapter for Dirty Roots Radio.  On the show this past Thursday night, I shared my plans to make a change to DRR.

I have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to transition Dirty Roots from a live, one-night-per-week show to THREE new podcasts.  You can find details on the new podcast ideas in the graphic below and in this link:

https://igg.me/at/dirtyroots/x/8711669

I so appreciate your support of Dirty Roots Radio over these past 11 years.  And I look forward to what the future has in  store for Dirty Roots!  You'll be hearing more from me about this over the next few weeks.  Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.  You can hit me up on Facebook or Twitter, or email me personally at djtwang77@yahoo.com.

I appreciate your consideration of a contribution to this effort and would love it if you would share the link too the IndieGoGo page with any and everyone you know who may be interested in helping keep the spirit of independent radio alive!

Feel free to download the flyer below and share that as well!
