- the current fundraiser!
The progress banner/banner is accurate for just this campaign.
In-house operation. WFMU does homegrown fundraising, and it works for them.
FMA uses Stripe. Paypal could also be an option, but Paypal takes a percentage
Stripe is same as last time.
Stripe has a lot of things! (according to Tom)
Annual campaign, but you can donate anytime.
Lots of avant-garde, noise, etc.
End of year campaigns and holidays a problem for competition.
Two $3 donations.
- new mobile app
Android app came later because it took a while to find
Amazon Echo app could happen (Bose speaker you can talk to)
- Flash player?
Still a thing!
- FMA got another developer!
Two part-time developers (they each work one day a week)
Ross is still a developer. Eric is the new guy. They are friends in Milwaukee.
The nitty gritty is emails and customer service stuff.
Some new people to CC.
- What is a good way to get on the FMA?
firstname.lastname@example.org (there is a step-by-step guide)
Some roads are easier than others
Recently a genre count. There is an overwhelming amount of experimental and electronic

Not a dumping ground
Tom says it is useful!

Database issues before
- FMA Limited
Still a thing. Just ask!

More real blogs
- FMA passed the 100K song mark!
Stirring things up with contests and such. More social media
More people means more traffic, which means higher bandwidth bills.
- volunteer opportunities with the FMA
You can just suggest Songs of the Day!
Big name in FMA might not be Song of the Day because already getting traffic
Let her know about any contests going on.
- hip hop seems to be 'having a moment' at FMA right now (yay!)
No one knows why.
Folk and country for 8 months, but last 3 months it has been hip hop
Closing track: "Beat Cook Up 5" by J Blanked On This Beat - CC BY
Entire release is good, but this is a good closer
