It’s Pledge-O-Rama time once again! During Pledge-O-Rama, most hosts pull together some great incentives and some special episodes in an effort to raise donations for the station that we love. This year we need to replace our aging broadcast antenna, and it’s a big job for a station that runs on a pretty tight budget, so we need a little help from our listeners!
Over the past 8 years, our good friend Gail Comfort has pulled together some of the best prizes and has worked hard to earn money for the station. This year she couldn’t be with us and she wasn’t very happy about it, so we put together a special Best Of show to boost her spirits and encourage people to remember her fine show when making their donations. In addition to some special statistics about which songs and artists she’s played the most over her almost 9 years on the air, we talked to one of Gail’s very favourite artists of all time, Lynn Miles!
There’s still time to get your pledge in if you haven’t had the chance already. You can read more about Pledge-O-Rama, our incentives, and make your pledge here: https://umfm.com/donate/pledgeorama
