SOME REALLY BAD NEWS with a reminder

Hey everybody,
As you may have heard us mention on the show, Lisa's (formerly known as the K-Tel Chic) website for ktelclassics.com is no longer with us. In fact, if you go to ktelclassics.com you will now only find an explanatory letter as to why Lisa did what she did. It is an all around ugly situation, and our hearts go out to Lisa. For years and years, she has done nothing but promote K-Tel records and help to connect music geeks around the world. Her website was indespensable to us as radio show hosts, and the content was simply amazing. And now it is all gone, and she is going to sell off her record collection (gasp). We are heart broken. Lisa has always participated in what we'll call SHUFFLE FUNCTION RADIO ROULETTE, and has helped out immensly during our KMSU pledge drives as well. She is near and dear to us, and that is why we want to send a care package her way - something to cheer her up and let her know that we are thinking about her. If you would like to contribute to Lisa's care package, feel free to drop off a card or letter at the station, e-mail us your message (which we will print off and include), or send it to the station at:
Shuffle Function c/o KMSU
205 Alumni Foundation Bldg.
MSU Mankato
Mankato, Mn. 56001

Please call if you have any questions, or send us an email at shufflefunction@hotmail.com

also: YOU HAVE LESS THAN THREE WEEKS TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY TO OUR SHUFFLE FUNCTION 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY CONTEST. WIN YOURSELF A FREE PROGRAM DIRECTOR FOR THE DAY!!!!! THE DEADLINE IS JULY 1ST - AND DON'T FORGET, EVERY ONE WHO ENTERS THE CONTEST WILL WIN SOMETHING!!!!! Scroll down to find out all the information suitable for printing.

THIS IS MY HAPPENING AND IT FREAKS ME OUT

















After years and years of waiting, watching my crummy VHS from Cinemax, Beyond The Valley of The Dolls is FINALLY receiving a U.S. DVD release. I absolutely adore this film. Great music, over the top flowery dialogue, very dated visuals, and loads of Russ Meyer women. This is the film that put Meyer off of the studio system forever. This is the last screenplay that ROGER EBERT wrote under his actual name. Watch this film and then try and figure out how a film critic is involved with this masterpiece of carnal cinematic weirdness. It's a rock and roll soap opera with dialogue like Shakespeare on acid. Z Man, I'm talking to you!

If you haven't seen a Russ Meyer film before, you probably should. Be warned: Some are little more than soft core porn. The good ones, however, are simply nuts. Mysogynistic and nuts. His most notorious film, "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!", is probably his tamest and the best place to start. If you can find it, that is. Go-Go dancers in sports cars scamming and beating up men. Oscar material? No, but that's hardly the point of a Russ Meyer film.

The DVD has all sorts of cool extras, plus it has an Ebert commentary track, as well as a cast commentary. I can just imagine the stories these guys must have. Beyond The Valley of The Dolls was rated X back when X was all new and daring. Today it would likely be a naughty R.

THE AMAZING TRAILER!
The official BTVOTD site
Find It - The Carrie Nations
Roger Ebert's essay on BTVOTD
The Official Russ Meyer site
The Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls Tarot!
THE FIRST SIX MINUTES OF FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!























P.S.: Don't forget the 5 year anniversary contest!

Yes Virginia, You CAN Control The KMSU Airwaves

WIN A FREE PROGRAM DIRECTOR FOR A DAY

It's hard to believe, but Shuffle Function is five years old today. Why it seems like just yesterday I was saying my first word on the air, "ummmm". Shyboy Tim and I are celebrating this milestone the best way we know how, by offering you an opportunity to do what we have come to love - play radio. That's right, we are giving away a Program Director For The Day. One lucky winner will join us on the morning show where they will control the playlist and dictate the musical fate of Southern Minnesota, Northern Iowa and the WORLD (kmsu.org) !!!

HOW CAN YOU BECOME PROGRAM DIRECTOR FOR FREE??
Muster all of your original thought, flex the old imagination muscles and let loose the creative juice - and explain why it is that you love KMSU. We will judge which entry we like the best, and declare a winner. How do you show your KMSU love? Honestly, the sky is the limit here radio listeners. You can knock off a little one act play, write and perform a song, choreograph a dance, make a movie, latch hook a Shuffle Function rug, erect a sculpture, manage to get The Legendary Stardust Cowboy to Mankato, compose a haiku, teach the morning show theme to your marching band and march around the KMSU building all day - do whatever you think it takes to outwit other listeners.

As the Highlander movies have taught us, there can only be one [cue Queen]. One lucky participant will win the free Program Director For The Day, but EVERY ONE WHO ENTERS THE CONTEST WILL WIN SOMETHING. And not just any old something either, something tasty. All entries are due by the first of July, which will give you a month to come up with your solid gold idea and execute it. The winner of the Program Director For The Day will be announced on our Two Year Anniversary of the Morning Show, July 31st.

So there it is. May the best KMSU Music Geek win. By the way, if you happen to volunteer at the station, you are not able to enter. Sorry dudes, but you are already playing radio!! If you have any questions, call us at the station, or email us at shufflefunction@hotmail.com Remember: if you are mulling over whether or not you should enter, just do it. If you are the only one, you automatically win. Think about that.

Mail your entries to:
