Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:15pm Joe B:

For people new to the marathon, here's how the prizes work: Every 15-20 minutes we will put a new prize or two up for grabs - a book, a CD, an LP, a 45 pack, etc. Anyone who pledges IN THAT TIME PERIOD is put into a drawing for that prize. When enough people are in, we will draw for that prize, then start over with a new prize and - hopefully - a new batch of pledgers!

Prizes are separate from the premium CD, which anyone who pledges during a particular show at $75 AUTOMATICALLY gets that premium in addition to any other prizes you might win. And with a grand prize, that is pledges at a certain level get into one final drawing at the end of the show!

Our grand prize for today is a Rolling Stones super DVD pack! Ed Sullivan, the Bigegr Bang and more!

The premium for this show - yours AUTOMATICALLY for a pledge of $75 or more is called Celebrities at Their BEST! The answer compilation to Celebrities at their Worst series, I have put together a disc chock full of great tracks that showcase some of your favorite classic rock stars, game show hosts, actors and other assorted bozos before they were famous, and in most cases, before the sucked!

Let's hear it for the old man demographic!
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:21pm Joe B:

FYI the term Mouse of Today pledge - the term originated as the House of Tomorrow pledge when WFMU was located in East Orange NJ and needing to move pronto. Once we settled on our Jersey City location, the name changed to the House of TODAY pledge. Once we got settled in, it morphed from house to MOUSE of Today pledge, with said monies being directed 100% into our webcasting operations.

I know there is a lot of info being thrown at you so dont forget to go to the pledge page where it is all spelled out nice and clear!

Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:37pm Joe McG:

Hey, chinchilla--Actually, the time for a prize account is passed. That's for people who pledge ahead of the marathon so they don't miss out on prizes. Now that the marathon is happening, just pledge when you want and the pledges will add up to whatever amount you have in mind.
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:37pm Sigurdur:

If your Boss does not allow you to make phone calls then please at least consider changing employment
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:38pm Danne D:

Hi Chinchilla - the good news is that WFMU does offer what is called a prize account.

The bad news is that the deadline for that is March 4th.

The good news is you can still essentially do it the old fashion way. Pledge a bunch of times as you go and build up to the mouse. It would be helpful to the WFMU slaves if you indicated that you intend your pledge to be part of a bigger pledge :)
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:39pm Joe B:

Thanks Joe for clarifying! yes, pledge to a variety of shows! Hi to all, thanks for tuning in ... and hopefully pledging!

I always find myself trying to guess which Xmas song it's gonna turn into after the first couple of bars of a Ventures song! I can't help it.
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:40pm Caryn:

@chinchilla: you can't do the prize account anymore (meaning pledging small amounts during each show to enter prize drawings), but you can give e.g. a mouse pledge, and then above the swag options where it asks if you want to credit a specific show, you can pick a number of different shows to divide it up amongst.
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:40pm Danne D:

WFMU will send a swag double-check form after the marathon, so for example if you are entitled to 7 DJ premiums you'll have a chance to pick 'em out/clarify your choices then.
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:41pm efd:

wait, what??? Tommy Roe at BB Kings?!?!!
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 12:41pm Danne D:

you can do it the Caryn way too. (But you can totally do $15 a shot and still try to win prizes). Both ways are totally legit :)

Actually I was a big Bruins fan when I was a kid largely due to Mr. Sanderson as well as Bobby Orr, Gerry Cheevers, Ted Green, "Pie" McKenzie et al. I lost interest after a while, though, and it never really came back.
Skirkie, good call - Dan Epstein actually played that when I had him on a couple of years ago, but we didn't start with it.

@WheredSilent FMU's once a year marathon has always had on-air pitching. 'cept it's once a year and only for 2 weeks.

The silent fundraiser which WFMU had in October is of more recent vintage.

The regular fundraiser features lots of swag and prizes and mayhem. Many of us enjoy hearing our favorite DJs get team up each year to get WFMU over the hump each year.
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 2:14pm Danne D:

Most non-commercial stations have 3 or even 4 on-air pledgeathons each year. They are (IMO) less fun and are not as fresh and fun as FMU's marathon.
  Tue. 3/5/13 2:16pm WheredSilentFundraisersGo?:

So glad your others are silent. My life is so much sadder during marathons. I guess you gotta do it... But, I never give during - only randomly throughout the year...

Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 2:17pm Danne D:

The vast majority of FMU's funding comes from the on-air appeal. By being listener supported and not at the bequest of government entities and the like FMU is able to maintain it's independence and avoid the perils of things like sequesters and the like.

@Where'dSilent, people simply don't give anywhere near as much money during silent fundraisers. And I think FMU's out-loud marathons are fun to listen to. The DJ pair-ups often really crackle.
Avatar Tue. 3/5/13 2:21pm Mike East:

I agree. Marathon programming is some of the best of the year. Especially when you compare it to the garbage that runs during the NPR pledge drives.

@Todd-o-phonic: That Skip and Johnny song would be so much better as "Do the Annual Fundraising Drive."

Just yesterday posted something on my Tumblr about FMU marathons being better programming than other stations' NON-marathons.

Holy moly! over 10G. The People's Choice!

And if you prefer to hear music during these two weeks, Whered, and you support the station during the as you mentioned that you do, you can catch up archives during these 2 weeks. Through the support of mouse of today pledges FMU has those massive archives available whenever you want 'em :)

Y'all bringing in mad cash, to keep things going, that is exciting. Im just a hater as pointed out previously. I didn't realize anyone enjoyed the marathons. Its the only time of year I don't listen.
Dont worry, I give in the off-season, keep things smooth.

Comparing with other stations is like comparing to the worst thing you can imagine. 'course its better.

Weird to hear Todd-o-phonic-Todd and read the phrase "silent fundraiser" -- there's a paradox for you
