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

Hear this show now: MP3 - 128K | | 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 Electromigration – Global Music on the Move - celebrating the musical contributions of immigrant musicians in the US and other countries too. African music in France… Indian music in England… Latin music in the USA and much more. Check out the fabulous covert art by Mayuko Fujino - who does a show on WFMU’s Give the Drummer Radio web stream when she’s not making amazing paper cutout art:

“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’m now in my fourth decade on WFMU! Who’d a thunk it? And if you are in a good place economically, perhaps you’ll consider celebrating my radio longevity by making a $10 per month (or more) sustaining Swag For Life pledge.

If you do, your cup shall runneth over with WFMU swag EVERY year! This year for a $10 per month swag for life pledge you’ll receive our special edition Eat Flaming Death Fascist Media Pigs propaganda satire T-shirt, designed by Dr. PhrankenShop.

If you can make it up to a $30 per month swag for life pledge, you’ll get our new WFMU Baseball Jersey designed by Akira Yonekawa, and you can 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 and LPs I’m giving away to lucky pledgers this evening!

A premium-cd-level pledge of $75 or more also gets you into the running for our Grand Prize for this show, a 9 CD Box Set of remarkable Nigerian music by the iconoclastic William Onyeabor!

And you can peruse the fabulous swag on offer station-wide at various pledge levels - our beautiful new t-shirts, sticker, our new Live at Monty Hall DVD - with two tracks from our HONK NYC! shows and lots lots more - at https://wfmu.org/swag.

Thanks!

@Andal: I have tried 'International Music' - but that's not totally right either. Also - 'World Music' to some people refers to a specific kind of fusion of different countries' musics in a certain era...It's awkward.

@RevolutionRabbit, I think maybe some distinction should be made between classical and pop music. Ie, whatever is classical in that culture. this stuff is tricky.
