$100 pledge KMSU Day Sponsor
With this pledge you can sponsor an entire day of programming on KMSU. This is a unique way to commemorate a significant date like a birthday or anniversary or maybe to mark an upcoming graduation or favorite musician's birthday. This also makes a great gift for the Music Geek in your life! You can choose the music played throughout the day and we will announce your dedications throughout the day. This is a really great way to support community radio.

$100 pledge Shuffle Function Program Director For A Day.

This particular premium offers you the chance to do what Shyboy Tim and I love - BE ON THE RADIO! You choose the morning and you choose the music and then you join us live on the air during the Shuffle Function morning show. The musical destiny of the airwaves is all under your control -  all we do is push the buttons and in my case say "awesome sauce" too much.

When you become a Shuffle Function Program Director For The Day you will also receive:

1) one of our new Shuffle Function "Bacon + Zombies + Vinyl = Shuffle Function"

2) the new 5th edition of the Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television DVD

3) CD copies of your two hours or radio infamy

4) the satisfaction of knowing that you have supported community radio on your radio dial at 89.7 f.m.

There is a limited number of these available every pledge drive, so if you are interested in joining us you should be sure to pledge as soon as you can!

$100 pledge The Faces Box Set "5 Guys Walk Into A Bar......."

Four out of five stars from Rolling Stone! 

2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees!

This set is one of the best career retrospectives of a band EVER.  No foolin'.  You get 67 remarkable tracks, and 30 of them are previously unreleased.  Beyond that you get nearly everything they ever put out during their career.

"I love' em and doubt seriously if we could have had a Sex Pistols much less a Replacements without them." - Jeff Tweedy, Wilco

"Trust me, we all wanted to be The Faces!" - Slash, Guns and Roses

"They didn't seem to give a toss about anything." - Glen Matlock, Sex Pistols

"Try as I might to have made the 'Mats in their image, we were just too damn angry.  Faces - that's my band. They had fun." - Paul Westerberg

There's a few songs you may know (Stay With Me, Ooh La La), but man... the energy, the passion, the power and humor... THIS IS A GREAT BAND.  Not a clinker in the set.  Get in the car and friggin' drive.  Pick a direction and don't stop until you run out of gas.  I guarantee your car will run out of gas before the band does.

They're like the drunk little brothers of The Stones, and your life will be so much HAPPIER with The Faces in your collection.

We have the biggest goal we've seen since we started Shuffle Function 11 years ago:  $30,000.  That's a HUGE goal for us.  Please give generously.  You're the reason that KMSU has been able to remain on the air for over 50 years, and we'd like to be here for AT LEAST 50 more years.
