You can help keep Encore on the air:
Encore is a one-man operation. WRMI and Channel 292 are very generous with their air-time but Encore still costs around 200 Dollars/Euros a month to broadcast.
If you can – send a small contribution to help Encore keep going.
There is a PayPal donation button on the homepage of the website – www.tumbril.co.uk – which folks can use if they want to. If PayPal is no good for you then send me an email and we’ll sort something else out.
A big thanks to the folks who have donated already.
