There’s also a 501(c)3 nonprofit element to Radio Silence, as we aim to do our part to help create the next generation of artists and audiences. When you subscribe to the magazine or purchase an event ticket, a portion of your payment is set aside to buy books and musical instruments for under-served youth. If we can help inspire a few kids to want to be the next Buddy Holly or Langston Hughes—if we can help ignite some sparks—that ain’t a bad thing.
