Day 3 and things are trickling along. A grateful debt of thanks to those of you who have contributed so far. It’s making a big difference.

But we’re not out of the woods yet. We still have a ways to go before we reach our $10,000 operating goal for the next 6 months.

As you know, Past Daily is all about history and music and things Culturally Pop that you may have forgotten about, never heard before, or never heard quite that way before.

It’s a huge archive we tap from – almost a half-million recordings, going back to 1898. Those recordings, some of them, are fragile – they are disintegrating as I’m writing this. And it’s a race-against-time in some cases. It takes a lot of work to put the posts up on this site that we do every day, and we’ve been doing it faithfully since 2012.

But we need your help to keep the ball rolling and to help it grow. That’s why I’m appealing to all of you out there who come visit each day.

Let me put it to you another way:

Where else are you going to hear, all in one place: (Click on the links for each track)

FDR – Address At Madison Square Garden – 1936

KRLA – Firesign Theatre – 1967 – Part 1

BBC Saturday Club – Them – April, 1964

Chicken Delight – 1967

Roy Harris – Fantasy – ABC Symphony Orchestra 1946

And thousands of others? That’s what we do every day here at Past Daily. And that’s why we need your contribution. It can be a little, or it can be a lot. It is all gratefully needed and more than gratefully appreciated.

So do what you can, and tell you friends too.

Another update shortly.

    I made the donation because of Chicken Delight. Who cares about music? Seriously, I wish it could be more. I am hoping you get a great response. xxx Michele
