IRA GLASS LIVE ON SHUFFLE FUNCTION


February 19th will no longer be known as President's Day in Shuffle Function Land, but as "OH MY GOD WE ARE TALKING TO IRA GLASS DAY!!!!" As some of you may have heard me mention, Shuffle Function would not be in existence if it were not for the man pictured above, Ira Glass. I have always loved stories - telling stories, hearing stories, making up stories, whatever - and nobody does stories better than This American Life. So about six years ago I thought I'd apply for an internship with the show. That was when I realized that I knew nothing at all about making radio, and it was my guess that admitting this would probably look really bad on my application. So I started hanging out at the best community radio station around, KMSU. To make a long story short, not long after this Tim and I began doing our own radio show on KMSU, Shuffle Function. Not to sound too over dramatic, and I can just hear Tim's eyes rolling back in his head as I type this, but working with radio has been the love of our lives, and so it is with great pleasure that I am happy to invite you all to listen in Monday, February 19th for our live interview with the man who initially inspired me, Ira Glass. We will be talking about his new TV show based on the radio show, This American Life (coming soon to Showtime), all things radio, and if we can, Gilmore Girls.
Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, and tell your family to tune in FEBRUARY 19th around 7:20 a.m. to 89.7 on their f.m. radio dial !!! And don't forget - you can always listen to KMSU over the onlines on the internets at www.kmsu.org

THE 24 HOUR PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO 2007!

























Begin disrupting your sleep schedules now! The Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go begins Thursday, March 15th @ 6pm, and comes to a slap happy conclusion Friday, March 16th @ 6 pm. Shyboy and Shelley will be LIVE on the air with no sleep, surviving only on the basic human needs of caffeine and rock and roll, and begging you to pitch in and help support this glorious little radio station on the hill with your generous donations.

More details to follow...

CLAIRE BALDERSON-COLDSNAP

Of the Newport Coldsnaps, no doubt.

Last year we had a contest to name the winter storm that was on the way. Out of all the entries, the one that won was Owen Bennett Jones. Yes, we named the storm after BBC News favorite OBJ. We decided at that point that we'd name any winter storms after BBC News personalities.

Well, this year we haven't had much in the way of winter storm action, but we do have this ungodly coldsnap. We realized that this may be our only shot to name something after a BBC News personality, so from now on this coldsnap is called Claire Balderson-Coldsnap.

When you are talking to people about the weather and urging them to dress appropriately, use phrases like "Hey, it's Claire out there!" or "It's Claire, so beware!" or something like that. You'll be honoring a beloved news personality, while showing that you care.

And hey... It's Claire out there.

Shyboy
