Major White Rose News (please keep kicked)
Dear Friends of The White Rose,

In the last three years, White Rose has served over three million hours of Liberal/Progressive talk radio. We have reached tens of thousands of people in 133 countries. And we owe all this to your continued patronage.

Until now, White Rose has been a part-time effort for me, albeit one that has taken 4-5 hours each and every day while I have been supporting myself with other work.

The time has come to take this to the next level.

As of this week, I have incorporated White Rose as a business, and am now its full-time employee. I have contracted for much faster dedicated servers, and am planning on greatly expanding the programming line-up.

Part of this effort will be running paid archives for certain show hosts, and the first of these will be The Thom Hartmann Show. Because we are sensitive to those listeners who are in reduced economic circumstances, we will be setting up a free 24/7 MP-3 web stream of the most recent Thom Hartmann Show which will remain free of charge, and we will be selling subscriptions on a "Pay what you can" basis.

Another part is stepping up our fund raising efforts so that I can continue to work on this archive full time and serve you better.

I have set a goal of $2500 in donations to cover the next couple of month's operations (I work cheap!) and am now asking you to please contribute if you can.

Thank you so much, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve you.


Ben Burch,
White Rose Webmaster

16. My husband quit too
I'm pretty proud of both of us .

I think with Khephra's passing plus
the politics of tobacco was enough
to push me over the edge to a smoke
free lifestyle .

I want to be around for a long time
being a thorn in the sides of republicans

4. That's great news Ben!
Whiterose has played as much of a part in keeping me sane the past three years as Mike Malloy, Thom Hartmann and Randi Rhodes.

For those of us already donating monthly, will we have access to the paid archives?

Also, can you clue us in on what some of the new programming will be?

Thanks again. :yourock:

6. All current monthly donors,
and anybody who has sent a one-time donation recently, will get a free pass for a few months, just for the asking. Details will be posted when we go "live" with the paid archives.

Because the paid archives will be "Pay What You Can", you can either convert your monthly donation to just that subscription, or create a second subscription for Hartmann at the minimum of $1/month.

Please note that Thom Hartmann, and indeed all of our show hosts who choose to have paid archives, will get 70% of the subscription payments for their particular section of the site.

15. Hey Ben...
First, thanks for running WRS! I always pick up Malloy's show off your website.

Second, do you need hardware donations? I have a couple of IDE hard drives (~80gb I think) that I need to hand off.

They are used but probably still have some life on them...

Thanks!

26. As long as the catacombs are still free
I haven't read and saved it all yet.
I'm disabled and, until my SS hearing, live on $149 foodstamps and spare change from family. I can't help any more right now.
But you're on page 3 and sinking fast.
So I'm gonna keep kicking until I can kick you back to page one

Thanks Ben!
