Eurock Documentary Seeks Funding

We've been fans and fellow travelers with Archie Patterson and his Eurock project on the journey to discover great music. After many years of promoting and trying to spread the word,a new phase is beginning: a documentary film. Things like this don't just happen, and money does not magically appear to make it happen, so it's up to the fans to get it done.

From the campaign site:

American Radio-DJ and LP-importer Archie Patterson launched Eurock, California's first radio program dedicated to European rock, in 1971. Originally focused on progressive German pop music, the program sparked the subsequent development of the Eurock Magazine in 1973, and Eurock Distribution and Record Label in 1981. Though all three publications have been retired, Archie still has four decades' worth of stories to tell. Journey with him through the tale of Eurock from then till now.

There are a number of great gifts available for various levels of sponsorship. Check it out, and help make it happen!
