Marathon 2012 1 of 2 - with Rich Hazelton - Please Pledge, thanks!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


This is the FINAL weekend of WFMU's fundraising Marathon, our only on-air fund drive of the year, and we're 80 percent of the way to our goal - close, but still a long way to go. If you've already pledged, thanks so much! And if you haven't - or if you might be able to augment a previous pledge or pledges - you can make you contribution to the freeform cause (and also cast a vote of confidence for Transpacific Sound Paradise) using the patented woof-moo pledge box above, or right here:

https://www.wfmu.org/marathon/pledge.php?pr=TP

Click the link and you'll see all the cool premiums you're eligible for if you pledge a given amount. Also, most DJs, me included, offer special 'mixtape' style premium cds with pledges of $75 or more - mine is Transpacific Sound Paradise Rocks the Globe, rock and electric music meet roots from around the world.

Free web bonus this week only: Special-for-the-Marathon mp3 download:

We're very proud that WFMU accepts NO UNDERWRITING - which means we depend on listener contributions much more than other non-commercial stations. But what if we did? To jokingly emphasize our freedom from underwriting I'll be sprinkling my show tonight with international ads. You can download them here.

Details on prizes and premiums offered to pledgers:

We do have some incentives to offer to help encourage you to do the good deed:

Any pledge of $75 or more automatically will receive my special premium 'mixtape' cd, Transpacific Sound Paradise Rocks the Globe - the latest greatest unearthed gems from my never-ending world-wide search for bombastic fantastic blends of global roots and rock.

Depending on the amount you pledge you'll be eligible for other special gifts too - such as the new FMU t-shirt designed by Brian Chippendale, the sharp new FMU bag, a colorful FMU turntable slipmat, or our truly unique audio tour of the Garden State, the NJ postcard flexi-disc.

Pledge now using the box above or at https://www.wfmu.org/marathon/pledge.php?pr=TP and the premium options will be revealed - or take a peek at the swag before you pledge at http://wfmu.org/marathon/tch.shtml.

Over the course of tonight's show - in addition to awarding premiums which are automatic depending on how much you pledge - we'll also be doing random giveaways to pledgers, so you may win an additional prize as well. We'll be giving away select world music CDs that I've chosen as the best in our prize collection.

And we'll also be giving away one world music profile DVD per hour. (To be eligible for the DVD drawings you must pledge $75 or more - but that means whether or not you win the DVD, you'll automatically get my compilation CD, FMU t-shirt and FMU sticker.) And we'll award a super special grand prize to one lucky winner, an around-the-world 5-continent 5-cd package.

Winners will be chosen randomly from among tonight's pledgers. If you're not chosen the first time, well, you can always pledge again!

Thanks for listening and even bigger thanks for pledging!

Listener comments!

Hi Rob! The Utrecht record fair is again due April 14th and 15th! ;)
Avatar Sat. 2/25/12 6:39pm Your DJ:

Thanks soooooooooo much Bas!
  Sat. 2/25/12 6:39pm cubicle carl:

Hey, that would be a great premium. A seat on the TSP chartered flight to the Utrecht record fair.
  Sat. 2/25/12 6:43pm Bas, NL:

Going to the fair is a ten minute walk from where i live and the most expensive vacation i have.
Avatar Sat. 2/25/12 6:47pm Your DJ:

Carl, I'll have to work on that premium... anybody know anyone in the airline biz? But Bas is right - that sounds like potentially a very expensive short distance trip!
  Sat. 2/25/12 6:54pm cubicle carl:

Come April 14th we can have our own New Utrecht Ave. record fair in Borough Park, Brooklyn.
  Sat. 2/25/12 6:57pm Bas, NL:
