We're up against the biggest goal we've ever faced, and we're desperately counting on you folks to chip in and help us keep KMSU on the air!  As you have no doubt heard, and will continue to hear, KMSU desperately needs to raise money to get a new transmitter.  The one we have is on its last legs and we can't even get new parts for it.  Without your financial support we cannot continue to bring you the unique local programming you've come to know and love, and we won't be able to get the necessary gear we need to keep broadcasting.  Keep in mind that not only do your pledges help keep us on the air, but they also act as a vote of confidence in the station, and the university notices these things.  It shows the folks that run the show that we're valued by you and that we're an asset to the community.

Any amount makes a huge difference, but we have some great swag available at different pledge levels to hopefully nudge you towards making a contribution.  And now...



Mr. Specific strikes again with another DVD featuring his unique video forays into the fringes of society.  Every Spring, just in time for pledge drive, a nondescript brown paper bag with an unmarked DVD arrives at the Shuffle Function office door.  Don't miss out on the 7th weird installment!


Shyboy Tim has struck again with this new t-shirt design for the tenth anniversary of the Shuffle Function Morning Show!  HAS IT REALLY BEEN TEN YEARS?!!  All the cool kids will be wearing them, so obviously that means you!  Available in S to 2XL.


For only $50 you can wear your KMSU pride dramatically across your chest!  This is a reprint of our tower design from a number of years ago, and it seems appropriate, because what's attached to a tower?  A TRANSMITTER, WHICH WE DESPERATELY NEED!  Available in sizes small to XXL.

For the thrifty listener who wants to save a buck but score some sweet premiums!  You will receive the new Shuffle Function t-shirt PLUS the Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television #7 DVD.  It doesn't take a math genius to see that this is one heck of a deal! And since it is our ten year anniversary for the morning show, if you'd prefer to get a 45 rpm with the Shuffle Function Morning Show Theme instead of the DVD, you sure can.

KMSU is one of the rare spots on the dial to carry World Cafe, and this CD collects some of the recent amazing in-studio performances from both old and new musical favorites!

The Cadillac of premiums, this allows you to join us during the morning show for two hours and control the playlist!  You bring your music collection and get to play DJ and we just push buttons and talk too much.  With this you also get the brand new Shuffle Function t-shirt, the new Crypt of Underground Neanthropic Television #7 DVD, and CD copy of your two hours of radio infamy to share with family and friends.


KMSU hosts love to celebrate the unappreciated genius, and we especially love to celebrate them with a thank you gift to our listeners.  This Spring we're offering a collection of Gram Parsons music that will cover all the bases and provide you with some of the most essential and influential music in country, rock, and americana that has ever been created.  With the Flying Burrito Brothers and as a solo artist Gram Parsons left a major mark on the world of music.  He's one of those musicians that you may not have heard of, but the musicians you love most certainly have, and his songs left a deep impression.  For crying out loud, he taught Keith Richards all about country music!

For a pledge of $100 you will get Hot Burritos! The Flying Burrito Brothers Anthology, and a collection of Gram's two solo albums Grievous Angel and GP.  The anthology has the first the albums from the Burritos, plus singles and rarities, so you will be getting over FIVE ALBUMS worth of remarkable music.  Don't go another day without letting Gram Parsons into your life!

You can sponsor an entire day of radio on KMSU with this premium.  Commemorate a birthday or anniversary, surprise the music geek in your life, treat the new graduate, or celebrate the music of your favorite musician!  These are just a few ways that you can use a KMSU Day Sponsorship.  A personalized message will also be read throughout the day so the whole world knows that you are a super cool person that supports independent radio!

There's the swag!  Drop us a line with questions, but most of all drop us a line with your support! Give early and give often!  We are counting on you!

CALL 389-5678 OR  1-800-456-7810 AND MAKE YOUR PLEDGE, OR MAKE YOUR DONATION ONLINE!  (Don't forget to specify KMSU as your pledge recipient!)

Thanks for being the best listeners in the world!
