Pledge-O-Rama Prize List!

UMFM’s Pledge-O-Rama returns, bigger and better than ever! UMFM has put together some stellar incentives for your pledge, and there are tons of station prizes available to be won, including the venue or festival “Golden Ticket,” daily draws for a Half Pints Brewing prize package, and more! And my listeners won both last year!

In addition to those great incentives, I like to put together my own prize packages, and this year, I’ve got a pretty impressive list of great stuff to give away to supporters!

All you have to do to get in on the fun is place a pledge and put TTBTGH or SBR as your show(s) to support with it (or some of it.) No fancy draws here, you can pick your own package! Go through the list and if something looks good to you, let me know and I’ll try to get you something you’ll enjoy. The more choices you give me, the better your chance of getting something you want! Everybody wins something!
