Hello Kevin and group, Happy New year!

I noticed this post mentioning crowd-funding in part because ZonaVibe  
is currently running a campaign over on Kickstarter http://kck.st/hPF46K

After working the project for the past several weeks, I can say that  
rallying the troops for fund raising is a lot of work! I now have a  
sense of what public radio stations go through on a regular basis. I  
have noticed a number of successful recording projects on Kickstarter  
including a couple by high profile jazz musicians. The question is  
whether these projects would have happened regardless of this new  
funding platform. In our case if the project funding is not successful  
it will likely not happen any time soon. There are recordings, radio  
(as well as musicians, publicists, and radio promoters) would no doubt  
benefit from if artists succeed with these new kinds of funding  
sources. And video is definitely a big part of motivating fan funding.

thoughts about how it could help jazz radio directly. Swedish National  
Public Radio is doing a story about it and will be interviewing  
guitarist and composer Rale Micic tomorrow about his "Jazz Needs  
Video" project and crowdfunding.
