WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO GAME TIME.
« on: February 26, 2008, 12:03:57 AM »
ATTENTION ALL FRIENDS OF TOM.

We're getting closer. Twenty hours away from the first marathon show. And I seriously need your help.

If you're a fan of the show, NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED.

We need to make this our most successful marathon yet. And we can.

For starters I NEED YOU TO PLEDGE DURING THE SHOW. You know when it's on! Every pledge counts. I want the big ones and the small ones. The white whales and the guppies. Every dollar helps keep WFMU on the air for another year!

I'll be talking plenty about the pledge increments during the show, but $75 or more gets you the WE DID IT AGAIN! FUN PACK, which consists of an awesome t-shirt which is being designed as we speak, an amazing sticker designed by none other than Kick The Bobo, which I will reveal tomorrow, and an amazing full color printed 16"x24" version of the poster that Brian Weaver designed! It's the best marathon premium we've done to date, and you're going to LOVE IT. I promise!

The phone number is 800-989-9368, and online pledges can be made at www.wfmu.org . But again, PLEDGE DURING THE SHOW. We need to show everybody the might of The Best Show!

The other way you can help out? SPREAD THE WORD.

Tell everybody about WFMU and The Best Show On WFMU. Post it on FOT-friendly message boards! Send out MySpace bulletins telling people to pledge during the show! Put it in your Facebook status! I will get links for pledge boxes that you can put on your MySpace/Facebook pages early tomorrow. Let's do this, everybody. Let's knock this one so far out of the park! I'm gonna give tomorrow night's show everything I've got, and I hope you will do the same.

We're in this together. Fifty weeks of fun, two weeks of fundraising. Let's keep WFMU on the air for another year. WE CAN DO THIS.

Tom.

We're in this together. Fifty weeks of fun, two weeks of fundraising.

Shouldn't that be "Fifty-two weeks of fun, two of which are also dedicated to fundraising"? 'Cause last time I listened to one of the fundraising shows it was a big rock-out hullaballoo of dynamo power. I doubt this will be tote bag type radio.

Fundraising? More like fun-raising, am I right people?!

Tom says "We don't deal in puns here."  But I gotta say, that gave me a chuckle, MJC.

Count me in for a pledge tonight, Tom.

I am apologizing in advance for the size of my contribution (damn public education career), but I will pledge. IT'S TIME TO GIVE BACK, PEOPLE.

I'm saving up for a condo I've got my eye on in Newbridge. Maybe next year when Hot Rocking Ronnie returns.

I'll pledge next week, probably during the third hour.  Don't know why I feel compelled to wait, but there you have it.

Looks like I'm going to have to donate a second time.  Probably $50 this time to get the WFMU t shirt.
