Spring Pledge Drive Show Appeals Removed But Still Implied

This week’s pledge drive show was a delight to host with guest and friend Juli Kelen helping out but you won’t hear much of our conversation. The show below is almost all music with only the song announcements. Go ahead and get it started.

Our station manager contends that even during pledge drive shows, KAOS and other community radio stations still play more music per hour than commercial stations. Well, this podcast is a good test. While it doesn’t contain as much music as my regular weekly shows, it still includes 18 great songs from New Orleans and Lafayette. I start the show with four excellent contemporary cajun numbers.

Even though this show doesn’t include the wonderful and charming banter between Juli and I, laying out the important reasons for why you should support community radio, you can still support KAOS and KMRE — the two stations that carry my show. Just click the call letters and it will take you to their respective membership pages.

My show rotation means I’ll be doing another pledge drive show next week. Catch me live on KAOS, 89.3 FM and streaming at www.kaosradio.org/listen . Show starts at 10 a.m. (PST) on Thursdays.
