This is the special 2012 Fun razor edition of Break Your Radio. Somehow it turned into something like a novelty show, which I’m all right with, and I’m also A-OK with the amount of money WCBN (and I) raked in…collectively, we raised more than $30,375. Thank you thank you thank you generous and gorgeous donors, including Drs. Root and Loteyro, Jeff and Barbrow, whom I was unable to thank on the air within the hour (I give them their due gratitude in next week’s show). Of course, thanks again, Gramma K!
The figure above does not count the donations we obtained through credit cards. hooray! I think >$30k will tide us over til next year. It may even enable us to erect a brand new bigger better transmitter so 88.3 WCBN-FM can infiltrate the ears of Michiganders far(ther) and wide(r). Nor does that figure include donations received at the several live events sponsored by WCBN in celebration of our fundraiser. Along those lines, I’d like to share a little story.
Karl is the man. I love it when I get the chance to hear his Monday afternoon freeform show. Karl and I were minding the WCBN welcome-merchandise-bumper sticker-donation table at one of our fun razor events. Karl is a rugby player. He has rugby player friends. When one rugby player calls another rugby player a coward, a battle ensues. In this case, they ate a sheet of permanent-marker-stained paper and washed it down with gin. Who wins–Karl’s buddy, because he swallowed the paper AND a dollar bill? or Karl, because he did not commandeer a portion of WCBN’s fundraiser money to stuff into his gullet? you decide.
Hey, just think about this for a second–what if a rugby player ate a dollar bill and expelled 3 quarters, 2 dimes, and a nickel? How does he express his surprise as he hears the succession of clinks in the porcelain bowl below? OK, stop thinking about it.
HEREIN thou shalt encounter:
animal (and other) soundz
yodeling and waltzing
(perhaps not in that order)
THANK YOU ever so much for making this year’s fundraiser a smashing success.
You’re welcome to donate year-round, you know. Let me know if you haven’t yet reserved one of these fancy gifts, and we’ll work out the details.
