Round Window Radio is a music series seen through the prism of the 5-string banjo.
What you will receive (for the price of a latte per month):
A monthly download (or stream) of an eclectic and unique music track recorded with Jake Schepps and a wide spectrum of collaborators (such as Darol Anger, Matt Flinner, Grant Gordy, Scott Nygaard, Noam Pikelny, Ross Martin, Tony Trischka, and many non-stringband musicians too). These recordings will cover lots of musical territory (think bluegrass, newgrass, Brazilian choro, jazz, classical, and much more).
Sheet music and/or banjo tablature for every recording posted each month.
Articles about the music, the composer, creative process, and other facets of what you are hearing (think detailed liner notes).
Podcast-style interviews with the musicians recording for Round Window Radio.
The knowledge that most of your subscription dollars are paid directly to these collaborating musicians. In this age of free music streaming services and a dying CD market, Round Window Radio endeavors to support these wildly talented and creative musicians, and in the process create lots of music for you to enjoy (think crowd-funded patronage of the arts).

Other surprise exclusives along the way for subscribers only.
“It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance, and I know of no substitute for the force and beauty of its process.” -Henry James
“New research demonstrates that spending money on others provides a bigger happiness boost than spending money on oneself. When prosocial* spending is done right—when it feels like a choice, when it connects with others, and when it makes a clear impact—even small gifts can increase happiness, potentially spurring a domino effect of generosity.” - UJ Ramdas, Intelligent Change
The above quote essentially constitute the Round Window Radio mission statement.
