Support The Beat
If you love the music and want to support the station, there’s a few ways you can do that!
As a single-owner radio station, we’re David taking on Goliath daily. We could use all the help we can get and hope you’ll love what we do enough to help us keep it all going so we can keep doing what we love most, bringing all this great music, memories and content to you daily.
1. BECOME A BEAT STREET TEAM VOLUNTEER
No, we’re not going to force you to spin around on your head or wear parachute pants but… we will ask you to spend some time being a “Beat Street Promoter”.
WHAT IS THE BEAT STREET TEAM?
The Beat Street Team is a group of people who listen to The Beat, love music played on The Beat and understand that helping keep a radio station they love on the air [they love ]is no easy task when competing against billion dollar companies. The Beat Street team help us out in a variety of ways such as:
— Tell your friends about us, share our posts on our social networks with your friends on your social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
— Sign people up for our e-newsletter
— Pass out stickers and swag at events
— Help at live shows, concerts and mix show gigs with video and social networking awareness.
IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
The only requirement is that you be at least 18 years of age. If you are under the age of 18 and you listen to our station then kudos, your parents are educating you in great music. If this is you, you may volunteer at Beat-vent if you have a parent or guardian present. Some events may require volunteers to be 21+, depending on the venue’s age policy.
IS THERE ANY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY INVOLVED?
At certain events, there may be tasks that require heavy lifting of equipment, signage, etc., but you won’t have to do any of that unless you’re feeling ‘Hulky’.
ARE THERE SPECIAL PARKING PRIVILEGES AT THE SHOWS I VOLUNTEER AT?
We do our best to secure free parking for our volunteers at any event they participate in. Unfortunately, it is not always possible. Rest assured, we will do our best to map out the best options, routes and spaces for you!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ME BEING A BEAT STREET TEAM MEMBER
You get to help a radio station that’s unlike any other in Chicago. You help keep us bringing you the music you love and allow us to compete against those billion dollar corporate radio stations. There’s free tickets to the show or event you’re volunteering at. We do our best to offer extra concert tickets, swag and perks to our volunteers throughout the year as they become available.
