UTR’s Big Next Step - YOU can help!
For the last 8+ years, Under The Radar has been primarily one thing: a radio show/podcast... with a few supporting pieces around it like concerts, blog posts, contests, etc. We are ready to take the BIG NEXT STEP and turn this ministry into a full-fledged media organization. It is our desire to be the leading voice in curating and championing well-crafted, faith-inspired music.
We are on the cusp of ushering in our creative relaunch (target is the end of June), which will include:
* New organization name + new logo
* New mobile friendly website
* New video productions, including:
- Full length artist interviews
- Live and produced music videos
- Documentary features
- A few zany/fun things sprinkled in
* FIVE New audio podcasts releasing this Summer, including:
- An all-music show
- An interview-based show
- Series following the creation of albums
- Crowdfunding & patronage show by Garret Godfrey
- Creative process show by Nick Flora
* New album compilations, including:
- Live At ETTL, Vol.3 (coming this May)
- ETTL 2017 Artist Sampler (coming this July)
- A Rich Mullins Tribute Album (coming this September)
* Restore Dave Trout's full-time status with UTR

To accomplish everything above, we need YOUR help. We are launching our BIG NEXT STEP FUNDRAISER, now through 6/17/17. Our goal is to raise $12,000 to help boost our creative relaunch and get all of the (above) listed initiatives off the ground. We have some kind & generous friends in Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Colorado, & Georgia who have stepped up with some leadership giving to say "If the UTR community is willing to contribute $6,000+, we will take care of the other $6,000!" We also have some bonus gifts if you give at the following levels:
MONTHLY GIFTS OF $1-9/MO AND ONE-TIME GIFTS UP TO $119
