NICK DRAKE: A SKIN TOO FEW

I've been on a bit of a Nick Drake bender since I picked up the Fruit Tree set a few weeks ago. He's just one of those guys I have to dive into when I start listening to him.

One of the great tragedies of Nick Drake's legacy is that there is no film or video of him performing or being interviewed. We're left with photographs and the music, and I suppose the fact that he only exists in these perfect moments enhances his legacy. One thing I did find while looking around on youtube was this documentary that was included in the Fruit Tree reissue that came out a few years ago. It's about an hour long, but it's pretty moving. Nick's story isn't a happy one, but I'm glad people are celebrating him.

2nd CHRISTMAS: RECORD STORE DAY 2011

Record Store Day 2011 at Tune Town was yet another blast! People were lined up before opening to snap up all the cool exclusives available that day, and that is something that will never get old.

We played THREE HOURS of Shuffle Function Radio Roulette, which was hit or miss because we didn't make an offering to the Radio Gods before hand. When will we learn?

Check out the photo highlights!


I suspect you may hear some of these releases on the morning show next week.

DON'T FORGET ABOUT OUR SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING THE BIG BIG PRIZE WINNER ON MONDAY MORNING'S SHOW! Shyboy Tim and I will be giving away a one year family membership to the Mankato YMCA and a Nintendo Wii to one lucky winner who made a pledge to KMSU before the end of the 24 Hour Shuffle Function Pledge Drive A-Go-Go.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK!

Hey, we need one more person and we'll have 200 fans on Facebook. You're already wasting time on the interwebs if you are looking at this page, so go there now!

THE PLEDGE DRIVE IS OVER!

It's days like this that serve as a profound reminder of why it's so amazing to be a part of KMSU. This morning, between six and eight a.m., WE RAISED THE FINAL $1500 NEEDED FOR THE ENTIRE PLEDGE DRIVE! Thank you! We never doubted your generosity, your belief in this station, or your keen fashion sense.

We spent this morning playing our favorite outsider musicians, which is something we've been doing since our first show ten years ago, and you guys really stepped up in response. You know that there is no other station in this area where you can hear people like Shooby Taylor, Congresswoman Malinda Jackson Parker, The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, Wildman Fischer, and so many more that you REQUEST on a regular basis. It's a real source of pride that KMSU listeners appreciate these underdogs of music.

Thanks again, Radio Heroes. You are the best listeners in the world.


There's just one more thing on the pledge drive related agenda you guys might want to check out. This Saturday night, from 11 to Midnight, The Five Count is offering up four pairs of tickets to the upcoming Pixies show in the cities. Be one of the first four to pledge $100 or more during this show and you can get them! If you have never seen the Pixies before, then this is your chance. They put on an amazing show.

UPDATE: It gets even cooler with the Pixies tickets! Since the pledge drive ended early, The Five Count is now GIVING THEM AWAY! Listen for how you can win Saturday night from 11 to midnight on KMSU 89.7/KMSK 91.3 or kmsu.org. GOOD LUCK!

HOLY CRAPOLA ALL Y'ALL


I just got off the phone with Gully and he said we are now about $1,500 bucks away from our KMSU Pledge Drive goal. That is great news - and thank you once again to all the Radio Heroes out there who have stepped up and pledged to KMSU.


Shyboy Tim and I would love to end the KMSU Spring Pledge Drive during tomorrow morning's show. We can only do this with your help. If you have yet to make your pledge, please consider doing so during the morning show. Every pledge counts and every pledge gets us that much closer to the goal.


If you think about it, all we need is for 15 listeners to step up and pledge $100 for a day sponsor or the What It Is Box Set or a Shuffle Function Program Director For A Day.


If you think about it even more, all we need is 30 listeners to step up and pledge $50 for the new Shuffle Function t-shirt.


AND if you think about even harder, if 60 listeners pledged $25 for the Crypt Of Neonthropic Underground Televison DVD.


We will see you in the morning Shuffle Functioneers. I hope that the adorable animals in cups have persuaded you to support cute and adorable radio. Shelley

THURSDAY VINYL SHOW EXCLUSIVE SWAG

UPDATE: THE VINYL SHOW SWAG IS GONE!

Thanks to all who pledged!

We're playing all vinyl on both the morning and nighttime Shuffle Function shows this Thursday, and to sweeten the deal in these agonizing final days of the Spring Pledge Drive we've rounded up some exclusive swag (in the spirit of Record Store Day, this Saturday @ Tune Town)

$75 - LEGENDARY STARDUST GEEKBOY PACK!
Pledge $75 and you can get a STILL SEALED vinyl copy of The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's Rocket To Stardom LP, which has classics like I Walk A Hot Wind, Dynamite, Shootout On The CB Channel, and re-recordings of Paralyzed and Who's Knockin' On My Door. PLUS, you'll get a 24 x 36 official poster from the historic KMSU Listener Appreciation Show featuring The Fleshtones and The Ledge! There is only ONE of these.

$75 - ORIGINAL PLEASED TO MEET ME PROMO POSTER!
These have been in storage for nearly 25 years in Shyboy's parent's basement and they are in very good condition, having never been used in any record store displays. This is Shyboy Tim's favorite Replacements album, and the poster is gonna look great on your wall. We only have FOUR of these.

Once this swag is gone it is GONE, and it is only available during Shuffle Function from six to eight a.m. and from six to seven p.m. on Thursday the 14th of April. PLEDGE NOW! 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810, or send an e-mail to shufflefunction@hotmail.com with your name, address, phone and the amount you would like to pledge. We'll fill out the paperwork and send you a bill.

HELP! THIS JUST IN - FOR EVERY PLEDGE OF $50 OR MORE, SHYBOY TIM AND I WILL PASS ALONG OUR MORNING SHOW THEME ON A 45 RECORD. THE B-SIDE IS THE RHYTHMAPLEX PROJECT "LET'S GO". JUST OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU RADIO HERO!

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

ALL VINYL THURSDAY A.M.!

ALL VINYL MORNING SHOW
ON THURSDAY THE 13th!

It's getting close to the end of the drive and there's still a long way to go to reach our goal. Honestly, at this point it can get a little depressing with the phones getting quieter and quieter. We realize that many of you radio heroes have stepped up and made your pledges, and for that we are grateful. Please, if you have not yet made a pledge, we need you to step up and help KMSU out. Your contribution means the world to us.

On Thursday we're gonna do an all vinyl show. We realized after the vinyl portion of the Pledge Drive A-Go-Go that there was still so much that we haven't played, and it's a blast to spin vinyl, anyway. Plus, it seemed like an appropriate lead in to Record Store Day, which happens on Saturday, April 16th. Tune Town is the location in Mankato for celebrating independent record stores, and we'll be playing Shuffle Function Radio Roulette starting when the doors open. It's an all vinyl game of chance, and you can help us out by drawing numbers, flipping coins and rolling dice. BE THERE!

Call now with your pledge. 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810, or visit kmsu.org and click on the donate button. Thanks.

PS: We're gonna have a couple of Vinyl Morning Show exclusives for swag!

I CAN HAZ PLEDGE MONEE?


We've had a great start to the pledge drive! Thanks to everybody that has pledged so far. You are all radio heroes, and you have stepped up and done your part to keep independent radio alive in Southern Minnesota, Northern Iowa, and THE WORLD.

Currently the station is at just over 15,000 dollars, which is 10,000 short of the goal. That's a great place to be, but experience tells me and Shelley that this is the part of the drive where it is most difficult to get people to pitch it. It's kind of a scary position to be in, really.

Only 10% of public media listeners take that extra step to give to their favorite stations. TEN PERCENT. I know that for years I was among that 90% that listened or watched and assumed that pledge drives were just something that stations did, but I can tell you from experience at KMSU that the drives are LITERALLY do or die.

KMSU is in a very precarious position right now, because much of the grant money we have relied on for years to keep operations running smoothly is in jeopardy. The economy has created a crazy budget cut situation that is getting a little too real around here. Honestly, if we lose that money we're kind of screwed. That's why now, more than ever, we need you to do your part.

I'm gonna post the swag again at the end of this post. Please look it over and see if there is anything that might entice you to give a little bit to keep the station healthy. The swag starts kicking in at the $25 dollar level, but any donation makes a difference, even if it's only ten bucks. Call 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810 and help us out. It only takes a moment, and it'll make you feel good about giving.

You can also go to kmsu.org and click the donate link, fill out the web form and you're done. OR you could send us an e-mail at shufflefunction@hotmail.com with your name, address, phone number, and the amount you'd like to pledge and we'll just bill you. Remember, you can put it on a credit card, you be sent a bill, or you could make payments. We want to make this as easy for you as possible, gang.

Thanks for all you do. We really really appreciate it.

Shyboy




And now... THE SWAG!

$25 - CRYPT OF UNDERGROUND NEANTHROPIC TELEVISION 4 DVD!Every Spring we arrive at the station and find a small paper bag waiting in our mailbox from Mr. Specific. He spends his year collecting and compiling oddball eye candy for our viewing pleasure, and this year's DVD is among his oddest. Add this fourth installment of the Crypt series to your weird cinema collection today!

$50 - SHUFFLE FUNCTION TENTH ANNIVERSARY SHIRT!


It is really hard to believe that we've been at it for ten years. Even after all this time it's still the most fun either of us have had, and for some insane reason the two hours we spend every weekday morning on the show are usually the best two hours of our day. For our tenth anniversary we've done a redesign of our very first t-shirt, which went out of print instantly has been unavailable since the very first 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go nine years ago. It has been our most requested shirt, and we hope that you like it so much that you can't possibly live without it. The color appears kind of gray in this image, but in reality it's more of a sandy beige. With the black and white of the silkscreen image it turned out pretty striking, so pledge now and specify size!

Available in small, medium, large, extra large, and XXL.

$65 - THE RAG AND A COASTER COMBO!

SPECIAL MUSIC GEEK VALUE PACK! When you pledge $65 you will get the new Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television DVD, as well as the Shuffle Function 10th Anniversary shirt, plus you save yourself ten bucks! Don't forget that the DVD can be used as a coaster and the shirt can be used as a rag. SO MANY OPTIONS! SO MUCH VALUE!

$60 - WORLD CAFE OR ECHOES CD

KMSU is one of only a few stations that carries World Cafe with David Dye, and when you pledge to get the World Cafe CD you help ensure that we can continue offering this amazing program to you. Each year there is a new collection of unique in-studio performances available from some of today's top artists, so be sure to pick up the new CD. Fans of Echoes can also pick up a new CD from Featured echoes artists.

$100 - WHAT IT IS! FUNKY SOUL AND RARE GROOVES 1967 - 1977

This set is completely unbelievable. Four CDs of some of the rarest and funkiest tracks around, all packaged in the kind of gorgeous set that only Rhino Records can compile. There are over 80 tracks, all of which are explored in the extensive booklet filled with a treasure trove of information.


The music has been compiled from the archives of Atlantic, Atco & Warner Bros. Records, as well as from numerous small regional labels. It would cost tens of thousands of dollars to collect the original releases in this set, so you are cutting loads of time and money out of the equation by picking this up. You'll find lots of familiar names (Aretha Franklin, Charles Wright, The Barkays) but you'll also find even more names that you've never come across. Better yet, you've probably never heard the vast majority of these tracks, and take it from us... these tracks KILL. The reaction from other KMSU hosts when they found out the station was offering this was the kind of excitement that only music geeks can summon.

Trust us. This set will cause the danceless to dance, the funkless to funk, and give soul to the soulless.

$100 - SHUFFLE FUNCTION PROGRAM DIRECTOR FOR THE DAY!

BEST SHUFFLE FUNCTION VALUE! If you want to make the most of your pledge drive dollar, then you gotta go for this one. As Program Director For The Day you get to join us on the Shuffle Function Morning Show and control the musical destiny of Southern Minnesota, Northern Iowa, and THE WORLD! You control the playlist, we just push buttons and talk too much. PLUS you get the brand new Shuffle Function Tenth Anniversary shirt, PLUS you get the new Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television 4 DVD, PLUS you get a CD copy of your two hours of radio magic to prove that you were actually up at an insane hour of the day.

$100 - KMSU DAY SPONSORSHIP!

When you become a day sponsor on KMSU you get to have a day of programming dedicated to you. This could be something as simple as a message being read through the day in honor of a special even or person, or it could be a more elaborate tribute to a musician, like when we've done day long tributes to Bob Dylan or John Lennon. Come up with an idea and we'll see if we can swing it. You support the station and you get to dedicate the day. Pretty sweet.

The pledge drive is now going on! The phone numbers are 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810 to call and pledge, or you can go to kmsu.org and click the donate button. Just fill out the quick online form, select your swag and you're done!

You can be billed or you can put it on a credit card today. You can make payments. Basically, we want to make this as easy as we can for you, because without you we don't exist.

Thanks a ton, you guys. You are all radio heroes.

Shyboy Tim and Shelley with Team Sister (and Sister Brother)

Good Morning Radio Heroes! Tim and I are once again humbled and amazed at all of the support KMSU listeners showed us during the Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go. It was another great success, and KMSU is now about 2/3 the way towards hitting our goal of $25,000.


Tim and I will be posting alot more content and photos from the marathon - we just never had the time during the marathon to do more!!

Thanks once again to Team Sister and honorary member Sister Brother. We could not do what we have to do with out you!!




Tonight we have a bonus Grind-Fu Cinema in store for you!! It is the least that we can do to thank you for your support during the marathon - and a chance for Shyboy Tim and I to decompress.


GRIND-FU CINEMA PRESENTS STINGRAY SAM AND THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT Saturday, April 9th @ 7:00pm Wiecking 220 Auditorium Minnesota State University, Mankato FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE!


Join us the day after the Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go for a special celebratory Grind-Fu Cinema screening! We'll be showing two super fun films by Cory McAbee, who wrote, directed and starred in both. His band did the music, too. We're talking Renaissance man here, people. The films are Stingray Sam and The American Astronaut. The best way to describe both is to say that they are steampunk cowboy movies... in space! Another way would be to say that they are hilarious and catchy and a blast. Also, THEY ARE FREE! That's right, Grind-Fu Cinema is free! We'll be showing both films starting at seven p.m. in Wiecking 220 Auditorium on April 9th. Bring your friends and some snacks and sodas and settle in for a kick ass night of movies.
