- ANCIENT VEDIC RADIO THINK TANK -
Jai Radhe - Please put on your "Thinking Cap" and write your thoughts on the form below.
You might want to first type out your ideas on your computer's word processor where you can save and edit until you are ready to copy and paste your ideas on this form. When you are ready, HIT SEND & it will arrive in my e-mail box. You can fill out the form more than once as additional ideas come to you.
I have posted some of my thoughts below.
OK...So what are we looking for here? Please write down ways that Ancient Vedic Radio can reach more listeners. After all, this is what our Facebook Group is all about. What steps can be taken? Here are some thoughts that came to me:
1. Place ads in small town newspapers. There are hundreds of them, usually serving small towns in a specific county.
2. If an astronaut from INDIA ever goes up to the Space Station, contact NASA to see if Ancient Vedic Radio could be played. Alright, this idea is way out there but perhaps the press would report this and mention Ancient Vedic Radio. We have to think big and creative.
3. Contact large & smaller magazines (Rolling Stones, etc.) and suggest they feature Ancient Vedic Radio. We certainly have the image to make for a great cover story. By the way, I can provide a large copy of this image to anyone in our group. Just ask.
4. Reach out to our Facebook and other friends to see if they would accept our business cards and distribute them. Until we can figure this mass marketing out, at least we can make people aware of Ancient Vedic Radio by giving them our card. I just ordered 2000 cards for roughly $65.00 including shipping. The new cards are just like this one but the website will be: www.AncientVedicRadio.com A little easier to see than looking at: www.ancientvedicradio.com update: 2000 cards arrived on 1/18/15
Please take your time in filling out this form. No rush. Your best idea might come to you a year from now. Always remember, we do not want to "preach to the choir." We are targeting brand-new listeners.
Note: When I first became inspired to create Ancient Vedic Radio, I didn't have a big "master plan" in mind. It was done more on the level of a hobby, and still, today, there is this quality about it. However, it has taken on a more significant meaning and like I just said, brand-new listeners are what we are focusing on. With this clearly in mind, for 2015 I have made several changes to the website's content and show's format to better embrace the viewpoint from a brand-new listener.

The HOLY NAME is like a medicine. A shot. An inoculation. I have received many of them: polio, flu, yellow fever, typhoid, etc. So the HOLY NAME is like this. We don't even know how shots work. Right? But still, polio shots have saved millions of children from that dreadful disease and yet, not one of those kids knew how the shot worked.
This is where faith is required. The farmer has faith that if he puts the seeds in the ground, carrots will appear. The back of the package tells him so. In this same way, my faith rests upon the words of Lord Chaitanya (Krsna): "Let the entire world be delivered by HEARING the Holy Name."
On this "transcendental seed-packet," everything is contained in this one instruction: Where to plant the seed (the entire world) - What kind of seeds? (the Holy Name) - What kind of crop? (blessed & liberated by Lord Caitanya).
So not only does Ancient Vedic Radio give us SOMETHING concrete to do, we also see how we are placing our faith in the words of Krsna and directly supporting the mission of Srila Prabhupada and all the Gaudia Vaishnavas. This is how I am going to be spending the rest of my time while I am still alive.
So if you have some ideas, whenever you feel inspired, let us all know how we can achieve our goal of a million-plus listeners.
Soon I will post a list of all our suggestions.

If you are in a position to donate monetarily to our group's Ancient Vedic Radio's Operations Account, please donate regularly if possible. PayPal is safe and we have tested it here to be sure it works. Here's a thought - I was once asked to send money for a good cause. Instead of only sending my contribution, I first went around to my friends and took up a collection. It was this SUM TOTAL that I sent. This seemed like the best way. It added up. Within the past 21 days my wife and I have personally donated over $300. I believe in setting a good example. Perhaps you can match this donation.
Here examples of how funds in our Operations Account are currently being used:
1. Purchasing business cards
3. Website Hosting fees
4. Music purchases for shows
5. Mailing supplies
