The annual WFMU Marathon is upon us! Huzzah!
Every year, The Freeform Station of the Nation asks you, the listener, to kindly lend some change to keep their doors open for another year. To which I say, in word of Henry Rollins (via The Pink Fairies), DON’T THINK ABOUT IT, DO IT!!!!!!!!!!! !
Look, I know things are tough all over. I know that we’ve had a few horrible things happen in the world recently that definitely deserve our time and attention and cash. But if you have any dough to spare for the only radio station worth listening to in the tri-state area, please consider doing so. Got five bucks? Send ’em five bucks. Every little bit helps.
But if you can send more than five bucks, you will get quite a bang for those bucks. For instance, if you were to pledge to, say, The Best Show on WFMU with Tom Scharpling, which airs tonight from 8 to 11pm EST. Tune in and hear Ted Leo play songs by request. and Tom’s partner in crime Jon Wurster do his magic live in studio. And if you pledge $75 or more, you will receive The Chump Steamroller Fun Pack. That includes a set of Best Show trading cards, a bumper sticker, and the first ever Best Show DVD, which I’m told will contain all sorts of celebrity contributions, bits by frequent callers, and much much much much more.
If you can spare even more change, you can pick multiple DJ premiums, and there is no shortage of awesome DJ premiums. Terre T, Evan “Funk” Davies, Rex, Dave the Spazz, Night People–a cornucopia of a smorgasbord of an orgy of awesome. Pick any one of them and you can’t go wrong.
Click here to pledge or call 1-800-989-9368 during the show of your choice. Do your part! YOUR AIRWAVES NEED YOU!
