UMFM’s 6th annual Pledge-O-Rama starts TONIGHT! Each year we look to listeners to help cover some of the monumental costs of running a radio station that is not beholden to major advertisers. The costs are huge but we think the benefits of having the station are huge. We’d love for you to help us out:
This Sunday, Tell the Band to Go Home ramps up our efforts to once again raise at least $3000 toward the overall goal of $34,000. It feels like a bit of an uphill climb this year, so we could sure use your support.
We always try to bring in some big guns to help, and this year, we’ve got a number lined up, and more possibly will be added!
We’ll catch up with TTBTGH favourite & friend Christina Martin! She’s hard at work on a new album. We’ll hear the first single and find out what she’s been up to. We may even have some long-distance live music! http://christinamartin.net/
Another TTBTGH longtime friend who’s been away for a while, JP Hoe! He just announced his annual Ho Ho Ho Holiday Show, so we’ll find out more about that holiday tradition. He has a longstanding tradition of debuting new songs on the show, but it’s been quite some time. Hopefully he’s got something in his pocket to pull out! http://www.jphoe.com/
And, flying in all the way from Toronto for the show, Jay Aymar! OK, so maybe he’s in town for other reasons, but he’s taking time out of his visit to stop by the studio and play us some songs from his upcoming new album! https://jayaymar.com/
And, we just got word that our good friend Gail has some family matters to tend to this weekend, so we’ll be manning the counter at The Comfort Cafe, and to do it, we’ve welcomed an old friend of Gail’s and mine, Oh Susanna to give us a call and let us know about her show next Saturday at Times Change(d)! https://www.ohsusanna.com/
That’s a lot of talent doing their part to help the station in our time of need, now it’s your turn! We sure love hearing from our listeners. No donation is too small (or too big!) and there’s a convenient payment plan and various options to help make things easy.
We’ll be rolling out our 15th annual Best Of compilation soon, and the only way to get in on the fun is to pledge your support! Please help us out today.
And don’t forget that I have a big box of exclusive prizes to give away on my show. The full list can be found at my website. Pledge and pick your prize soon! It’s truly first-come, first served! http://tellthebandtogo
Gail has some pretty nifty prizes for us to enter to win as well. She’s got 2 tickets to see The Skydiggers on November 15 AND it comes with a $50 gift certificate for Sorrentos to enjoy dinner before the show – That’s a $110 prize package! She’s also got a pair of tickets for Steve Bell‘s Christmas show with the symphony on December 12. You can get in one of the draws with a $25 pledge.
Thanks for supporting great music! Your attendance at The Sunset Saloon and your support of UMFM & Tell the Band to Go Home are so very greatly appreciated!
