Soon, Folk Alley will reach 50,000 registered listeners and the moment that happens, nothing will really change – except that the Folk Alley crew will celebrate another milepost along the way. I just want to say thank you for listening and I hope that we have created a service that you have found to be a nice space for you to get your folk music.
When Folk Alley launched on Sept. 8, 2003, it was a true leap of faith – to build this service with extra work from all of our WKSU staff and virtually no budget except for some seed money from CPB. My thanks to all of you who have listened, commented on our blog, told a friend or passed along your suggestions, stories and pictures from all corners of the globe. We have some great plans but we can’t make the next milepost without you, so please tell your friends, spread the word, and let’s make this a musical oasis together.
The Folk Alley crew will be on the road in February some at the Folk Alliance convention in Austin, and others at the Integrated Media conference in Seattle later in the month. Look for some new features, another live webcast, and more for you to enjoy as we look towards 50,000 and the future of Folk Alley.
