The Marathon: WFMU's Annual on-air Fundraiser w/ MC Tamar!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


Greetings dear listeners! I hope you can pledge tonight to support WFMU!

If you pledge to my show as usual I've made a custom conceptual world music cd for everyone who pledges $75 or more.

This year's custom cd is "Groovy Globe - World Music 1960s" - the first time I've ever put together a compilation of 60s tracks!

Swinging international '60s sounds: Ska, boogaloo, Tropicalia; psych and soul-tinged gems from Bollywood, Cambodia, Turkey, Ethiopia, South Africa and beyond!

Including this Macedonian Rom 60s classic from Esma:



Of course, if my cd doesn't float your boat you can choose a different DJ's premium (cd or otherwise) instead!

We hope you'll also consider joining our Swag For Life club (what mainstream public radio stations may refer to as a "sustaining" pledge). This means you pledge a certain amount to be charged to your credit card every month, and the pledge is renewed every year unless you opt to change it. As a thank-you, you'll get to choose new swag every year just the same as if you had made a one-time pledge. Making a Swag for Life or sustaining pledge is a beautiful thing, because it provides an economic foundation for the station year after year. If you have questions about "Swag for Life" or other fundraiser-related questions, see http://wfmu.org/marathon/faq.shtml

If you do pledge $75 or more (or allocate $75 of a larger pledge to my show) you'll be in the running for our Grand Prize! We're giving away the fabulous William Onyeabor 9 (yes, nine) cd box set on Luaka Bop records (his complete discography - including a beautiful 48 page booklet too). But you must pledge $75 or more to Transpacific Sound Paradise by the end of tonight's show to have a chance to win! Just use the pledge box at the top of this page or pledge right here. Thanks so much!

From the Luaka Bop website: "William Onyeabor was born in Eastern Nigeria, (and) he created his own genre of African electronic funk in the late 70s and early 80s, making music completely unique for his time. Today, he is reaching cult status among a growing list of admirers, including everyone from Damon Albarn and Hot Chip to Carl Craig and Madlib, with some likening him to the Kraftwerk of West Africa, or a precursor to LCD Soundsystem… Now for the first time, more than 30 years after original release, William Onyeabor's original albums (are) once again available. Onyeabor released 8 albums with one of them, Crashes in Love, in two different forms, (so that makes 9). The CD box has all 9 releases."
