Early 1900s Music Preservation



Our ability to bring the great forgotten music of the past to the attention of new audiences depends upon the support of those who have been fortunate enough to have already discovered it.

Your contribution to Early 1900s Music Preservation not only helps ensure that the music will continue to be made available for your own enjoyment, it also makes it possible for others to discover and enjoy it as well.

If the music we present, promote and preserve has touched you in any way, we ask that you please consider providing support to whatever degree you are in a position to.  All contributions, large or small, are greatly appreciated.

Your donation to Early 1900s Music Preservation is not merely a gift to a non-profit organization. It is a gift of music.  It is a gift of happiness, of joy, of beauty and everything else that makes the forgotten music we present so special and unique.  It is a gift to all those who will discover the music for the first time as a result of our efforts and perhaps be touched by it in the same way that you have been touched by it.   And, if any of the great forgotten artists we present have inspired you, there is no better way to honor their memory than to keep their works alive and to restore them to an honored place in our popular culture.

We are an all-volunteer organization and have no paid staff. 100% of all contributions go directly towards covering the expenses of fulfilling our mission of bringing the forgotten music and performers of the past to the attention of new and appreciative modern audiences.

Early 1900s Music Preservation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions to Early 1900 Music Preservation in the United States are tax deductible to the fullest extent provided by law.

There are two easy ways to support us: through a monthly recurring donation or through a one-time contribution.  Both ways help a lot.  Monthly contributions are great because they help us more accurately project future revenue.  Also, a monthly contribution makes it easier to provide a larger total contribution over time.  One-time contributions are also wonderful because we currently have some expensive start-up costs.

Not In A Position To Contribute At The Moment?

Not a problem. We understand and have been in that same position ourselves.  But there is still a way that you can help us with our mission that will not cost you any money: tell people about the music whenever an opportunity presents itself.  The easiest and best way to introduce new people to the music is to suggest that they tune in to Radio Dismuke to see what it is all about.  Just have them go to www.RadioDismuke.com   If you are in conversation and they are not in a position to write down Radio Dismuke's web address, simply tell them to go to www.HappyMusicRadio.com and they will be automatically redirected to Radio Dismuke.  "Happy Music Radio" is a lot easier to remember than "Radio Dismuke" for people who are not already familiar with the station.
