Giving Tuesday is the day to put your money where it can do some good in the world. It's the answer to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Keep it local by giving to Radio Free Brooklyn today. Today is also the day we're launching our "Drive To Five" campaign! With your help, we will move smoothly into our next five years.
As we launch the campaign, we're thrilled to have the support of legendary NY, Freeform DJ, Vin Scelsa. Here's what Vin says about Radio Free Brooklyn:
“When I was getting started in radio back in the 60s, a big rallying cry was that the airwaves belong to the people. At Radio Free Brooklyn, that still goes. As Radio Free Brooklyn approaches the five-year mark, your support will keep it going, so please make a contribution today.”
In May 2020, RFB will celebrate five years since starting out in our first rag-tag studio in a dingy bike shop basement. Now, as a full-fledged station with multiple streams of content and two state-of-the-art studios, we couldn’t be prouder of Radio Free Brooklyn’s contributions to our community. But in order to keep going, we need to raise $25,000 by our May 13th anniversary. Every dollar we raise during Drive To Five will go towards essential equipment and services needed to stay on the air, and further our media education initiatives, like our RFB Teen Squad program.
Please join us on our Drive To Five campaign with a generous donation. Plus, have some fun by participating in our Monthly Challenges—and maybe win a prize, too! This month, the RFB Trivia Quiz will test just how well you know Radio Free Brooklyn! Take it for fun... take it for bragging rights... take it for the win... but definitely pass it along.
We also have loads of exciting new swag to thank you for your donations! Check it all out here.
Artist: Brenda Brown
Title: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Genre: Vocal Jazz
Label: Brenda Brown Music
Brenda Brown is proud to release her latest vocal music recording, the beautifully orchestrated, warm and sophisticated version of the Christmas classic Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
“Brenda’s voice is mesmerizing.”
Brenda’s rich and expressive voice shines on this nostalgic and hopeful song by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. The brand new arrangement, slated for worldwide release on November 22, 2019, is richly orchestrated by Ross Wooldridge. Recording was done at Toronto’s Canterbury Music Company.
Brenda gives this version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas a special bonus by including the often-skipped introductory verse. In 2018 John Legend topped the Adult Contemporary charts with this song, and in 1944 the song became famous when Judy Garland performed it and brought servicemen to tears. This is a song that comforts and inspires people with good feelings of nostalgia and hope.
