WFMU Fundraiser Show With MC Trouble
Please Make a Pledge Here, Thanks!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


Greetings dear listeners! I hope you can pledge tonight to support WFMU!

If you pledge to my show right here, as usual I've made a custom conceptual world music cd for everyone who pledges $75 or more.

This year's custom cd is Transpacific Sound Paradise presents Electro-Planet - from Turkish psych to Balkan beats, Thai mor lam to Ethiopian grooves, global traditions amped up for the modern world!

“TSP

Of course, if my cd doesn't float your boat you can choose a different DJ's premium (cd or otherwise) instead. You can see the full list of DJ CD premiums at https://wfmu.org/dj-premiums/.

I've hit THE BIG THREE-OH! How better to celebrate than with a 30 dollar a month sustaining pledge!

I’m celebrating my 30th anniversary on WFMU! Who’d a thunk it? And if you are in a good place economically, perhaps you’ll consider celebrating the anniversary by making a $30 per month sustaining Swag For Life pledge.

If you do, you cup shall runneth over with WFMU swag EVERY year! This year you’ll receive our spanking new Party Lights Zip Hoodie, your choice of SEVEN DJ Premiums and you’ll get to choose one bonus past or present Marathon prize from our Prize Warehouse! And you’ll receive a similar batch of goodies every year as long as you remain a Swag for Lifer.

But any amount you can pledge is most fabulous and wonderful. And it just takes a $20 pledge to get our fab new bumper sticker AND get in the running for a prize drawing for one of the great cds I'm giving away to lucky pledgers this evening!

And you can peruse the fabulous swag on offer station-wide at various pledge levels - our beautiful new t-shirt, hoodie, sticker and more - at https://wfmu.org/swag.

Thanks!

Don't wait until week 2! That's what everybody else is probably doing AGAIN this year and it's probably causing everybody at FMU to freak the f#ck out. Pledge NOW and soothe the panic. You have a better chance of winning a prize in the first week!

Bldg. falling down? Yay, more remotes!

But seriously, folks, I'm sure everything has to go thru the bldg. where the cx are, so yeah.

Remember, you can pay later. Choose BILL ME LATER (not applicable for Swag for Life) when web pledging. Or just pledge by phone at 800-989-9368.

Whenever someone tells you art is not important, how come fascists always target artists for censorship or death? I mean if artists are just stupid and not worth much, why do d-bag place value on eliminating them. Anyway, PLEDGE!

I too have a big pile of Rob's excellent premiums!

I wouldn't make an argument about the value of art by invoking those who want to suppress it. Lots of people we may not like want to suppress mosquitos too, but that doesn't prove their worth.

WFMU runs a terrestrial signal from three transmitters, online streaming and four auxiliary online streams, more than 10 years of archives, more unique shows that are podcast-only, live performances on air and at Monty Hall, the record fair and the only fundraiser on air that you don't just shut off instantly.
