Unable to present a fundraising concert this year because of the pandemic, the all-volunteer Boonton-based internet radio station HomeGrownRadioNJ is raising money through a GoFundMe “Revitalization Fundraiser.” Visit this link to contribute.
According to a message on the website, “HGRNJ has maintained a presence in the Northern New Jersey music scene by hosting local musicians and broadcasting from area venues. As we approach the end of our 16th year of operation, we are facing years of wear & tear on our Sound Equipment. CD Players, Turntable Cartridges, Headphones, Cables, and Microphones are all near the end of their usefulness and in need of replacing.
“To help HGRNJ meet or exceed our $3,500 goal to upgrade our equipment, we are appealing to the generosity and ‘Team Spirit’ of our HGRNJ Extended-Family Community! Please consider making a Donation through our GoFundMe link to enable us to continue bringing you the best in Streaming Music & Talk that we possibly can!”
The station was founded on Oct. 30, 2004. A 16th anniversary streaming event to cap the fundraising campaign, with musicians TBA, is being planned for Oct. 30 of this year. Visit homegrownradionj.com.
