SOMETHING TO DO FOR TWENTY-FOUR HOURS

Beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday April 7th Shyboy Tim and I will be on the air for 24 hours straight, talking pledges and free form community radio. We don't do this for our health - we do it for the health of KMSU.

This will be our ninth consecutive Shuffle Function Pledge Drive A-Go-Go, so at this point we have lost our amateur status. But please don't get me wrong - we are not experts in the field of staying awake and alert for 24 hours of live radio! This type of radio adventure is such a wild card - and that frightens the hell out of two folks who are self proclaimed control freaks. We have some great events planned for the Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go this year, and we will get into the details as we get closer and closer to go time.

Click on this link to hear a world record being made. In 2001 WFMU radio DJ Glen Jones was on the air for just over 100 hours! It isn't real pretty at the end and I can completely understand why. I get pretty out there after only 24 hours. Have a listen and see for yourselves.
