Migrating to WordPress and modernizing the site is part of the Reader’s grand plan to keep being free and freaky for another 50 years. We couldn’t do it without you, and I want to thank everyone who’s supported us during our transition to nonprofit and our ongoing struggle—like everyone else—to successfully weather the upheavals of the last 18 months.
Music discovery has changed a lot in 50 years, but the Reader is still around—and so is Bonnie Koloc.

This fall, more than ever, the artists are helping us through.
