The Space Show this week – Dec.13.2021

Please Support The Space Show. The Space Show Needs Your Help. | The Space Show:

The year 2021 is rapidly coming to an end as The Space Show enters its second week of our Annual Fundraising Campaign. Each year at this time we ask you to support us as we are a listener supported space everything radio interview talk show featuring guests you want to hear from and talk with about their work and projects.  Now is the time to step forward with your financial help as we need your support for the coming year. In addition to your being able to use PayPal per the above direct link, you can use Zelle through your bank account.  To use Zelle, send the contribution to  OGLF uses a Chase bank account and this address register once your Zelle notification and transfer is received.

To make sure that The Space Show meets the challenges of 2021, we need partners just like you to help us stay strong as we are completely listener funded. We can’t go it alone, we need your help and support along with your positive energy and messages through participation in The Space Show support and programming.  But in addition, we also need listeners and supporters just like you to help bring to reality the goal of having space make a positive impact on all our lives.  Many of you listen to our programs and participate with us plus I frequently get personal messages from many of you regarding a guest or a specific topic yet I don’t see your name in our donor files.  While our content is distributed free of charge, and we work hard to continue this policy, Space Show programming is costly which is why it is important for as many as possible to support us with your donations during our campaign.  We need everyone’s support, not just a few because staying strong for 2022 is a group activity and we do need your financial support and participation.
