First off, I want to wish you happy holidays, and thank you for being a subscriber to Lyrics Undercover. For the past 128 episodes, Dianne and I have worked hard to bring you the most in-depth information of songs you know, along with some that you maybe didn’t know, and I couldn’t have done it without your support, your emails and your suggestions. Thank you.
And since 2006, Lyrics Undercover has gotten support and funding from the Denver Post. However, with the downturn in the economy, and everyone cutting costs across the board, The Denver Post is no longer gong to be able to host, promote and fund Lyrics Undercover. However, Dianne and I feel that there are hundreds, if not thousands of stories left to tell, and we want to keep going. And in order to do that, we need your help.
Starting January 1 2009, Lyrics Undercover is going to become a PremiumCast. In exchange for a small subscription payment every month, you’ll get four episodes, delivered every Thursday, each one giving you an in-depth look at a song. The price for all this entertainment is just three dollars a month. It is, as they say, cheaper than a White Chocolate Mocha at your local coffee chain. To subscribe, visit LyricsUndercover.com, and use the link on the right hand side of the page. When you subscribe to the Premium Cast, you’ll get a feed address that you can use with any Podcast subscriber application, including iTunes, so you won’t miss a beat. And you can cancel any time.
Your $3 per month will go towards hosting, bandwidth, and the writing and production of the show, and will continue to keep the show advertising free.
For those of you who can’t, or don’t want to subscribe to the premium cast, the feed that you’re subscribed to right now will still get one episode of Lyrics Undercover per month, absolutely free. If you want to keep receiving Lyrics Undercover, but can’t do the PremiumCast, don’t do anything. The first show of every month will appear on this very feed that you’re subscribed to. But you’ll only receive one of every four episodes a month.
Thanks again for your support and for spreading the word about Lyrics Undercover. And keep those requests coming. And if you need to reach me for any reason, please feel free to email me at LyricsUndercover at gmail dot com. Thanks and have a happy new year.
I’m interested in listening Regina Spektor’s “Us” episode of Lyrics Undercover, and I understand that I have to subscribe for this to happen.
Question is: if I subscribe for only one month can I listen to this episode? Can I unsubscribe after finishing that month?
Looking forward to hear from you,
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org – that episode is outside the feed, so I’ll need to give you a special link to get access.
But yes, if you just want to subscribe for a month, I’ll give you that episode (and you’ll get to check out a bunch of the most recent ones as well)!
