Help us meet our Membership goal! Just 6 members needed!
At the beginning of this year, Thacker Mountain Radio set a goal of getting 250 members. I am excited to announce that we have almost achieved that goal. Today, our total member count stands at 244! And, through our membership campaign and auction this year, we have raised $25,000!
These funds will be used to build a salary for a full time Executive Director/Producer, work towards more substantial funding for our artists, and to continue sharing outstanding Southern music and literature, which enhances appreciation for and understanding of our great state and region.
We celebrated our members and a great year at our First Annual Membership Party on Friday night – and what a success. The food was delicious, the cups full of cheer, and the Yalobushwhackers outstanding as usual! And, our Silent Auction was as eclectic and spectacular as our Thacker family itself.
Very special thanks to Southside Art Gallery, John Currence, the Main Event, and the City Grocery Restaurant Group, Jayce McConnell, Details Rental, Oxford Floral, The Yalobushwhackers, Yalobusha Brewery, Cathead Vodka, Star Package, Honey Bee Bakery and the Bottletree Bakery for ensuring we had a very merry celebration.

And finally, the biggest thank you to our community. Without each of you, the air waves would be quiet, the stage dark, and our work impossible. Thank you for all that you do to ensure we continue to be able to celebrate and document the evolving sounds and stories of a diverse South.
We’ll see you February 6!
