Let's get right down to why

streaming & web site servers, internet connections, music licensing,
Without your help, a big part of this scene Could be gone and the
music could go along with it.

spend on just one cover charge, or a concert ticket, or a night clubbing
or a dinner out... or more if you can, you insure we will be here giving
you live commercial-free radio that cannot be found anywhere else!

Radio possible. Hundreds of listeners all over the world have already

you to all of you!
Your donations are imperative in keeping Sanctuary on the air! We simply
cannot do it without you! Seriously!
Because of our
music licensing agreement, we cannot lock our streams down to just
donors. Doing that would put us in another higher cost tier with
them (pay per listener) and make it so we would have to charge at
least $20-$25 a stream to break even on just the music licensing
So we have to offer all of our our streams (HD/UHD) to the public
for free. The reason we need your donations to survive and we really
can't do this model any other way. The corporations have made it so
that the little guys are now setup for failure.
Especially since December 2015.

Here's an example of some of our costs each month as of 2022.
Bulk Discount Rate
Through Pronet Music Licensing
ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN
Can Broadcast On The Internet Legally
Example: For each USA listener, it costs us $0.0017
per song, per listener for just the SoundExchange fee.
So for just one month for just SoundExchange: $0.0017 x
12 songs an hour x 24hours a day x 31 days in a month =
$15.18 for just one month for one single listener!
We get about 25,000+ total listeners a day!
That doesn't include our fees for ASCAP, BMI, SESAC or SOCAN.
We do get a bulk discount from Pronet, but it is still our
far and away most costly bill we have to pay! And it keeps
going up, the more listeners we have.

For $30,000 Unique Listeners
High Speed Internet Connections
our studios to our web site and streaming servers which
get the music to you. Business Gigabit connections
$350 a Month
servers around the world broadcasting the shoutcast, icecast and windows media streams for each channel.
$100 a Month
Domain Registrations/Site Web Hosting/Request System Web
Studio Equipment Repair-Upkeep/Software Licenses
is running 24/7, so it will eventually break or need maintenance.
The studio's also use software we have to pay for to enable
the web site to display titles of the songs we play and
the request system.
$200 a Month
Buying New Music
though we pay for music licensing, we still have to also
buy the music we play for you.
$50 to $500 a Month
$246 a Day
(varies mostly due to amount of listeners tuning in and
how that affects music licensing fees)
Without the bulk discount for music licensing and
offering our streams for free, we would have to pay
around $20,000 - $40,000 a month.
