I always used the excuse that we couldn't afford to contribute since my family is already on a tight budget. But, then I was convicted one day that the money that is shelled out by Mike is because of my listening and surfing. So, I automatically have that $5 a month taken out each month with PayPal. I know it's not much and I wish I could do more b/c this is such a cool community to be a part of and I would hate for it to go away or reduce the service.

What is $5 bucks a month anyway...a cup of coffee at Starbucks. I think we can all afford that.

CUGrad, kudos for your support for Mike's site and for your post. You're right---if a lot of people would donate just a little, MaccaCentral's future would be rock solid.

Sigh.

Yes and thank you. With yours and sarapty's $100 donation today brings August total to $260 !

This is incredible, the closest we've gotten in a very long time to achieve the monthly $600 goal.

I am reworking some code I put together that will list out the latest donors, amounts, goal and grand totals. If all works out I'm going to try to make it a graphical representation perhaps like a thermometer. Such as this:

I like it- call it the Maccameter!

$0 could be labeled "Frozen Jap" and the goal amount could be labeled "Hot As Sun"

Mike,

I am sorry I have not donated in awhile.. My family and I are on a real tight budget too. I have donated $20.00 this month.. I will try to contribute more in the future.

I ask all MACCARadio listeners to donate what they can. Mike has a great service and programing. Thank you Mike for all your hard work!!!

Hey, Mr. Mike, did we get anywhere close to the goal?

Hey Mike!

Too sad to hear that we could lose maccaradio. Many times you just don´t stop and think about the people who brings you the things you like the most. I can understand your situation, I´m sure you have your own life, work to do, family to stay with, just like everyone of us I figure you need to hang out some time, there are many things to do in life...though the Beatles´ world is so vast at the same time is not all in the world.

I´ve been hearing macca radio for some years and I just can say that I love it. It is almost perfect, and that´s just because there are some albums that are not programmed in the schedule like Lennon anthology or Macca´s classical albums. And what about macca- central? I´m always informed about what´s happening on the Beatles´ world thanks to it. If you let me say it, I think you are doing something similar to what our idols did (and do), you bring us joy, magical moments through your site. I even think macca-central is way much better than the official site.

Thank you Mike for doing this, I´m sure you do it because is somethnig you love but sadly money issue is important. If I was a wealthy person be sure I would donnate at least a million dollars!!!! But, as you, I have family and many things to do, and my finnancial situation doesn´t allow me to spend money on every thing I like, you know, my family has to eat (and so do I).

Come on fans! We all love this site, this music, I know you could say that there are more important things to spend money in and you will be right (poor countries, hunger, diseases...etc) but as one fan said, Jenny Wren I think, if we all donnate at least a dollar don´t you think we could do it? It would be our way to say " Thank you Mike for spend many of your time and even money just to share with the world your love for the best music ever!"

I hope macca radio will continue just like this and I also hope I could get things better on my own life so I can help just a little bit.

And once again: THANKS MIKE!!!!!
We can make it to Mexico City...AGAIN!!!!!
