What up-ski?


It has been a strange coupla weeks around here. On 10/20, I had a work issue to deal with and had to have Bob Dubrow cover the show. (Thanks, Bob!) Last week, the 27th, I had my final 2010 pledger do his radio show so I didn't really do the show myself. This Thursday, the 3rd, is my day for fundraising. I hope y'all will call in or via the internets and donate to my show or just the station in general. All pledgers to my show will receive a special premium that won't be announced on the air. All? Yup, all. Even if you pledge $5.00 you'll get the special Thursday Lost and Found premium. I just won't be talking about consider yourself in the know. Also, another premium I have and will be giving to the highest pledger is a pair of tickets to see Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings on Thursday night in Portland, ME. I might even be willing to babysit for you if are a friend and would like a night out with your significant other. We will see.

Finally, I've started a Twitter feed for the show/website. Follow me. I will be giving tips on music, tickets, other shit y'all should know about. Just click the little button on the sidebar there and you are in like Flynn (whoever Flynn is).

Talk to you on Thursday, I hope and pray.
