SWAG-POCALYPSE NOW!

It's the week of the pledge drive, the week of THE MARATHON, and the time to start thinking about helping out your favorite radio station with your financial assistance. Stations like KMSU can only exist in your community when people like you make a donation to keep it operating.

We're a non-commercial radio station, which is why you never hear lousy commercials during your favorite shows. Because we don't charge for commercial time, we need to hold pledge drives a couple of times a year to remind you that your help is needed. Hey, we don't like having to hold pledge drives anymore than you like having to listen to them, but they are a necessary evil.

We realize that these are wintery economic times, and for a station like KMSU it is ALWAYS a wintery economic time. Please realize that ANY donation makes a difference with us. Ten dollars is as significant and 100 or 1000 dollars. For those of you that donate at certain pledge amounts... WE HAVE SWAG!




ATTENTION! THE FIRST ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE TO PLEDGE $50 OR MORE WILL RECEIVE THE SHUFFLE FUNCTION DO IT YOURSELF GRIP ENHANCEMENT KIT AT NO EXTRA CHARGE!


































$25 - FINDERS KEEPERS 5: MELODIES OF CHEESE AND PROGRESS!
So named because it is the 5th in the series, Finders Keepers 5 brings you more sadistic sounds and fractured frequencies guaranteed to be the life or death of any party, depending on how cool your crowd is. Excellent for breaking the silence or keeping drinks off of a table.



































$25 - CRYPT OF UNDERGROUND NEANTHROPIC TELEVISION DVD!

You, my friend, are a smart shopper AND you have excellent taste in radio!




































$50 - THE SPRING 2008 SHUFFLE FUNCTION T-SHIRT!

$65 BEST VALUE! THE RAG AND A COASTER COMBO!

This is one heck of a deal. You get a shirt, you get your choice of the CD or DVD, PLUS you get to control the playlist of the morning show! You come on with whatever you wanna play, and we just push buttons and talk too much. Just when you think this is enough, we also give you a CD copy of your two hours as proof that you were actually up so bloody early! Step right up and pledge!

There's also some KMSU swag for you, too:

Many listeners have collected these throughout the years, and it is a great way to show your support for both of these wonderful shows.

$100 - KMSU DAY SPONSOR!
At this pledge level a listener can sponsor an entire day of programming on KMSU. This is an unique way to commemorate a significant event, whether it be a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or the music of a favorite musician or genre. Use your imagination and we can make it work. Througout the day a personalized dedication will also be read by the various radio hosts. This is a great way to support independent public radio.






















$100 - THE HARRY SMITH PROJECT REVISITED: ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN FOLK MUSIC 2 CD/2 DVD SET!
This set is incredible! It has great folk music covered by an insane roster of musicians: Steve Earle, Wilco, Beth Orton, Elvis Costello, Nick Cave, Van Dyke Parks, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, Petra Haden, Philip Glass, DJ Spooky, Marianne Faithfull... The list seriously goes on and on with remarkable musicians. Plus, it looks kick ass on your shelf. PLEDGE NOW!
