How to become a BACM Buddy (UK)

[UK Customers – payments in £ sterling]
Please send an email with the subject: Archive Buddy to giving your name, full postal address and telephone number – and telling us how you would like to pay the £16 monthly. The alternatives are:

Standing Order. This will be the simplest for you because, once set up, the payment happens automatically each month, with no hassle. If you tell us you want to pay by standing order, we will send you a form with our bank details.

PayPal. You will need to first set up a PayPal account; then, each month, once you receive your CD package, simply sign into Paypal, choose SEND MONEY from the top menu, enter the AMOUNT (£16) and, in the TO box, enter our email ( and click “Send”.

Cheque. When you receive your monthly CD package, post a cheque, made out to BACM Records, to The Country Music Archive, c/o “Greenacres”, 451 Folkestone Road, Dover, Kent, CT17 9JX.

As an Archive Buddy you will receive a package each month containing the three new CDs, along with an invoice. To save on postage, the CDs are sent in plastic wallets and not in jewel cases (which you can buy in bulk on the internet at low cost). We accept returns if a CD is faulty or damaged — then it will be replaced without question.

If you will be paying by PayPal or cheque, it helps us if you pay promptly. If for some reason your payment will be late, please let us know. Otherwise, if we have not received payment by the time the next batch of CDs is due to be sent, we may have to hold them back – so you would never be in debt to us at any time for more than £16.00.

As Gene Autry once sang, “Play fair with me and I’ll play fair with you”. We have done our best to hold prices down for you our loyal customers and our recent increase from £15 to £16 (for three CDs) was our first in 12 years – despite the year by year increases in Royal Mail prices.

You can opt out of being a Buddy at any time by writing to us or emailing; and direct standing order customers also need to cancel the standing order. ‘
