Podcast: Mudge in the Morning: Oct. 25, 2019 – Pledge-O-Rama

It’s the final day of Pledge-O-Rama 2019, and although we were thrilled to pass our initial goal last night, we’re still working hard to earn your support which will help us to have another wonderful, prosperous year at UMFM! We rely on your donations to help us share great programming full of music, talk, and ideas that you won’t hear on your normal radio.

Mudge in the Morning is an all-out effort to play some of the greatest underappreciated music in the world. This one was kind of like a Greatest Hits episode with stellar songs from across our spectrum designed to get you moving in the morning or whenever you tune in.

Even though Pledge-O-Rama is officially over, we can always use your help year-round! Consider making a donation to show that you support what we do: https://umfm.com/donate/

Podcast: The Comfort Cafe, October 20, 2019 – Pledge-O-Rama w/Lynn Miles

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

Podcast: October 20, 2019 – Pledge-O-Rama w/Leaf Rapids

Episode #808

It’s that time again when we turn the power over to you, the listener, as we ask for your help to make it possible for us to undertake an important, urgent project, replacing our broadcast antenna. We’re asking for your donations to help us hit our goal so that we can complete this major project.

To help win you over, we’ve brought in some very special guests, Keri, Devin, Hazel, and Oscar Latimer, aka Leaf Rapids for some live music and conversation!

We’ve also got a whole bunch of great station incentives and a big pile of great CDs to give away, and the bulk of today’s playlist was made up of selections from the albums we’ve got to give you as our thanks for your support!

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
