It’s hard to believe that it’s approaching October, and there is no end in sight to the madness we’re all living in. It feels as though I’ve intro’d blog posts with this same sentiment a million times at this point, so I’m sure you get what I’m leading you to if you’re reading this.
CHIRP Radio‘s annual Record Fair was unfortunately canceled not only once this year, bu twice. Thanks to incredible technology and the team’s hard work, CHIRP has been able to modify their event into a virtual one!
CHIRP Radio’s Record Fair: Couch Edition is supporting local businesses that are barely scraping by during this never-ending pandemic. While you may be saving your coins for a big sale on Black Friday this year, consider buying a raffle ticket through Chirp Radio to help support local businesses! Raffles are $10 for 10 tickets. Check out the description below for each of the prize packs and see more info from Chirp Radio.
