Atlantas print media have been hit particularly hard by the national recession. Like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Creative Loafing, Paste magazine is barring the burdens of advertisers slashing budgets as well.
Paste is taking the unique approach of reaching out to readers to help ease its financial burdens. Last week the magazine launched a reader appeal campaign to generate funds.
Many of the artists the mag has covered, including Neko Case, the Decemberists, Of Montreal, She & Him, Josh Ritter, the Avett Bros., Brandi Carlile, the Indigo Girls and others have donated rare and exclusive songs to be given away to anyone who donates to the cause.
