Win an iPad! Go to Coachella! KCRW Winter Subscription Drive–and Art Predator’s!

January 29, 2010

So why should YOU subscribe to an LA radio station and to a West Coast based blog?

Because we both offer you eclectic excitement to enhance your lifestyle! On KCRW and on Art Predator, you just don’t know what you’ll run into next! And if you subscribe today, you could win an iPad!

When I started my “Art Predator” blog in November 2007 based on a newspaper column I had for a few years with the same name, I just started writing about what interested me in the arts–literary, culinary, visual, musical, and dramatic–like in my newspaper column. I included a few adventures too.

But quickly the blog evolved to expand beyond the limits of a newspaper column borders to embrace astronomy, astrology, politics, environmental activism, fashion, the latest Burning Man news, and more. And my readership expanded too–from averaging 115 page views a day in 2008 to 350 page views a day in 2009.

I give you the gift of my time. Won’t you please give me the gift of your subscription?

Just as my blog travels through cyberspace to you no matter where you live, you can live stream KCRW and listen to “Morning Becomes Eclectic” just like I do–except it might not be morning when you listen to it! You can also listen to their “Eclectic 24” channel, a web based version of KCRW available day and night. Go here to see what’s playing now on KCRW’s Eclectic 24. I even listened to KCRW while I was in Portugal last November!

A big difference, however, is KCRW asks for a minimum donation of $25 when you subscribe. (Let me get that paypal button up so you too can make a donation!)  When you subscribe to KCRW, you get to choose one or more premiums (depending on how much you donate) and you get entered into a bunch of cool sweepstakes, some of which –like a trip to Florence Italy–close today the first day  of the subscription drive. There’s also an AMAZING Morning Becomes Eclectic sweepstakes to Coachella: VIP tickets, car service to and from LA, and accomodations.

And today KCRW’s offering an iPad to a lucky subscriber!

I love love love KCRW. I get most of my news from NPR, listening every morning and evening, plus a five minute shot on the hour. KVRW’s eclectic musical progamming gets me through my days and nights. I hear and fall in love with cutting edge music from around the globe. Looking at the list of bands slated to play Coachella, I know most of them from my exposure to such a wide range of music on KCRW because real live djs select the music–and the musical selections range from the completely unknown to the well-known, from Radiohead to Michael Franti to Ozomatli and Beck to Miles Davis and James Brown. From Norman Cook’s BPA to LA’s Dengue Fever and Thao and the Get Down Stay Down to obscure bands from around the world.

And what can I offer you, besides at least one post a day every day on this blog? If you send me a self-addressed, stamped 9 x 12 envelope, I will send you a copy of my poetry collection “The ArtLife Poems” plus a broadside (or two or three depending on how much you donate!) Just like how KCRW lets you choose which cd you want, you can tell me which broadside you want. To take advantage of this offer, tell me so in an email or comment!

If you’d like, I’d be happy to send you an iPad, too. It just won’t be made by Apple.

PS How long will this subscription drive last? As long as KCRW’s–until the end of Monday Feb. 7. And I promise I won’t be as annoying about it as they can be about it on KCRW.
