Less than one week until THE MARATHON! Even though we're pretty much ready, we're in full on "what are we forgetting" mode. But something that we know for sure is what we'll be doing when during the whole darn thing!
SIX P.M.: THE BIG KICK OFF!
This is as fresh as we're ever gonna get during this thing, so enjoy it! Only 24 hours to go until bedtime!
NINE P.M.: SHUFFLE FUNCTION RADIO ROULETTE!
We always get great feedback whenever we do Radio Roulette, and this will be your first opportunity to experience the random selected joy/horror that awaits. For those of you who haven't heard Shuffle Function Radio Roulette before, we take Shelley's 400+ vinyl Ktel compilations and number them. Then we draw a corresponding number out of an actual magic hat to determine what record we play. Next, we flip a coin to determine the side, and roll a ten sided die from the magic bag of holding to determine the song. It is completely random, and if you know anything about Ktel compilations you know that there is a high probability of being a brutal playlist. You have been warned.
TWO A.M., FRIDAY: JANDEK - SOUNDS OF INSOMNIA!
The best time to experience the haunting and unusual sounds of Jandek is when you should really be asleep. The sleepless state we will be in gives his music the perfect edge. Since last year we've even seen him in concert, so we'll be filling you in on what a unique experience that was.
SIX A.M. TO NINE A.M.: THE ALL VINYL MORNING SHOW!
Three hours of vinyl is the bacon-and-eggs of the airwaves! Because we're spinning only vinyl you'll hear a lot of stuff that we might not normally play, and that's part of what makes this part such a blast. Odds are you'll probably hear MacArthur Park at least once, so feel free to swing by the station and join us for the sing along! And then, of course, make your pledge.
NOON: SHUFFLE FUNCTION RADIO ROULETTE, PART DEUX!
The game so nice we played it twice! Here's your second chance to live life on the radio edge. Depending on how the first round went, this could be our big chance for redemption, so cross your fingers, gang!
ONE P.M. TO SIXP.M.: ALL DJs FOR THEMSELVES!
From here on it we're existing on the magic healing powers of caffeine, rock and roll, and your pledge calls! Keep them coming throughout the drive, because they inspire us to keep going in the name of community supported radio!
There you go! Mark your calendars, because April 10th, six p.m., is nearly here! Plan accordingly, dress appropriately, and get your rest, because the Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go is almost here!
Check back on Sunday, because we'll be presenting the super sweet swag for you!
