Acaville Launches Membership

We’re so excited to launch a new Acaville Membership program! Everybody will still be able to listen to Acaville as before, but we’re rolling out a ton of fun, new benefits for members.

Over the next few months, we’re working on making back episodes of all our shows available on-demand for members – we’ve already got every aired episode of #TheSpotlight. At some membership levels, we’ll even turn our whole station over to you for an hour to play whatever a cappella you want!

Plus, we’ve got some special things up our sleeve to roll out in the next few weeks, too. So this is just the beginning!

Head on over to our Join page to sign up – not only are there great benefits in store, but you’ll be helping us keep the lights on and the music flowing.

Thanks so much!
