Our Vision

We feel STRONGLY about giving unsigned artists a chance

We at DFM feel strongly about giving unsigned artists a great venue to air their musical creations and allowing people the opportunity to record their work in order to get more recognition. None of this is possible without your help, please donate as much or as little as you can afford, our first goal is to set up and maintain an online radio presenceĀ
