2009 SPRING SWAG-O-RAMA!

THE SPRING PLEDGE DRIVE STARTS THIS WEDNESDAY THE 25th!
PLEDGE EARLY AND PLEDGE OFTEN!
24 HOUR PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO STARTS THURSDAY @ 6pm!
The pledge drive is almost here, and it could be the most important one we've had since Shuffle Function started up nearly eight years ago. In fact, it could be the most important pledge drive KMSU has EVER held. No lie.

The combination of finally completing the long and expensive tower/transmitter project, and the wintery economic climate, has put KMSU in a financially vulnerable position. Cut to the chase: WE NEED YOUR MONEY! Please consider the place that KMSU holds in your life, as well as its place in the community, when you are CHECKING OUT THE SWAG!

$25 - CRYPT OF UNDERGROUND NEANTHROPIC TELEVISION II DVD!
The second collection of video oddities compiled by Mr. Specific himself for your viewing pleasure. It's still early in the series, so if you're gonna be a completist you should start collecting now! Short films, video clips, classroom educational reels... Mr. Specific spares nothing in his quest to distract you from life's more important issues. Plus, it's only 25 bucks!

$50 - THE 2009 SHUFFLE FUNCTION T-SHIRT!
Join the United Organization of Federated Affiliates League and Associated Allied Collegues Coalition Society of Radio Heroes, and look good while doing it! The new shirt comes to you in screaming greens and yellows, and is proudly emblazoned with a 45 adapter to enhance your music geek street cred. You can both look swell and support your favorite radio station at the same time! It's all about multi-tasking these days, gang.



Give us your size and we'll ship one of these suckers off to you. For realz.

$65 - THE RAG AND A COASTER COMBO!
This is the deal for the thrifty public radio supporter. Pledge your support to KMSU and pinching pennies? How can you resist this deal? For $65 you get the new Shuffle Function shirt AND the Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television II DVD.

Fashion and weirdness. Two words forever linked to KMSU.

$50 - TWO TICKETS TO THIS AMERICAN LIFE - LIVE! WITH IRA GLASS ON THE BIG SCREEN!
We only have 10 of these available, so act fast. Ira Glass is bringing This American Life to the big screen once again this year, April 23rd @ 7 pm @ Movies 8 in Mankato. Last year's show was amazing, and Mankato even got a shout out from Ira! This is a great opportunity to see radio that is worth supporting, and how often can you say that?

$60 - WORLD CAFE AND ECHOES CDs!
David Dye and World Cafe annually release a CD of one of a kind in-studio performances from some of today's best new bands, as well as some of your all time faves. Be sure to collect them all. Fans of Echoes can also receive cds from some of the artists featured on that show.

$100 - KMSU DAY SPONSORSHIP!
At this pledge level a listener can sponsor an entire day of programming on the station. This is a unique way to commemorate a significant date, such as a birthday or anniversary, and makes a great graduation gift. Maybe you would like us to play one of your favorite artists during the day, or feature a favorite genre? We can do that! Throughout the day a personalized dedication will be read so that listeners will know who is responsible for keeping KMSU alive. This is a great and creative way to support KMSU and local community radio.

$100 - SHUFFLE FUNCTION PROGRAM DIRECTOR FOR A DAY!
Join us some morning during the morning show and control the radio destiny of Southern Minnesota, Northern Iowa, and THE WORLD! You share your music collection with the extended music geek community, and all we do is push the buttons and talk too much. You will also receive a CD copy of your show, a brand new Shuffle Function t-shirt, and the Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television II DVD. This is the most bang for your pledge drive buck, and a fun way for you to support your local free form radio station!

$100 - TO BE FREE: THE NINA SIMONE STORY (three CDs, plus DVD)

This set is unbelievable. To Be Free: The Nina Simone Story is a three CD collection of amazing Nina Simone moments, as well as featuring a large selection of previously unreleased performances. It also features a DVD of a legendary 1970 Public Television documentary that features live performances and interviews with the high priestess of of soul.

If you are new to Nina Simone's music, then this is a spectacular way to start your collection. This collection doesn't miss a beat, and it will hook you for life.


That's the swag list! Get ready to pledge starting Wednesday. And believe it or not, this is just scratching the surface. KMSU has some surprises in store for you, so brace yourself!

I just found out they're remaking Spider Baby, and Jack Hill is directing.

Whaaaa???? Color me intrigued! If Jack Hill is doing it then I wouldn't run away screaming. Where did you hear this?

It's on IMDB, if you can believe it. I was looking at the Foxy Brown credits, and I realized it was the same director as Spider Baby, and I looked on Jack Hill's page, and there it was. It's supposed to come out this year.

PS-Congrats on the amazing turnout for the Pledge Drive. I'm sad I wasn't in town for it.
