As Aleister Crowley pointed out, no one is “strong enough to have no interest,” So no one can be completely impartial. “Therefore,” according to Crowley, “The best King would be pure chance.”
Crowley believed that “it is pure chance that rules the universe; therefore, and only therefore, life is good.”

Ohm Radio 96.3 is looking to launch live over the airwaves in Charleston August 2015, and they need all of the community support they can get. Truly localized independent radio is something that has been missing from cities all over the country, not just Charleston, but there is a movement brewing. People are beginning to get involved in their communities on a major scale. If there is a silver lining in the last 15 years of this country it is the fact that more people than ever have realized that if they don’t get involved in their local community then the communities we cherish and love may no longer exist as we’ve known them. From farm to table farmers markets to truly local non-corporate media, people are taking the time to say this matters to me! We have an opportunity right here in our beloved Charleston to give a powerful voice back to the local community by helping empower OHM Radio 96.3’s mission! Ohm Radio will be a platform for truly local news that matters, local and regional music, educational and inspiring radio, and community outreach. Ohm has brought this idea almost to fruition and just needs our help for a couple last fundraising efforts. There’s a couple ways we can help over the next month! Below we’ve listed some of the local area fundraisers and ways to contribute. Please take the time to help out and empower our community!
· Friday, May 8th, Charleston Music Hall, run Ohm Radio information table with BACE at the release party for new SUSTO CD. (Email Vikki for details.)
· Sunday, May 17th, Royal American, 970 Morrison Drive, Charleston, noon-6:00pm. First Annual OHM Radio Sweet Corn Cook Off – Four locally based musicians /groups will be paired with four local restaurants to create and compete for the best sweet corn dish. Jam session to ensue. Contestants include: Shovels & Rope, SUSTO, The Charleston Jazz Orchestra, Edmond’s Oast, Taco Boy, and The Obstinate Daughter. Many volunteers needed to manage band merchandise, manage fundraising booth, sell tickets, float, manage dog-kissing booth, monitor jump castle, etc. Family friendly. (Email Vikki your desire to help. She anticipates this will be our biggest money-maker.) http://theroyalamerican.com/schedule/
Bob noted that some additional fundraising events are also in the works. Stay tuned for announcements on those. Jeffrey, Cary and Michael will also look into ways they can help raise money quickly in this time of Ohm’s urgent need.
