Contact Classic Soul Radio Underwriting – The Underwriting Difference

  1. As a private not-for-profit radio station Classic Soul Radio does not accept commercial ads — we rely on “underwriting” a term used to distinguish announcements that recognize a company’s support of specific not-for-profit radio programming.
  2. Traditional radio stations air 10-17 minute of highly produced “commercial blocks” that string numerous spots back to back. At Classic Soul Radio, there is no commercial overload. Our spots are read live by one of our on air personalities at a rate of three to four spots per hour.
If your company or organization would like to reach our educated, affluent, diverse, globally hip audience of public radio listeners and web visitors with a focused message of who you are, what you do, and how people can contact you, ask us about our underwriting program.
