If the snow on the ground and having to scrape the windows of your car hasn't tipped you off to what time of year it is, then this blog post surely will. IT IS TIME TO WISH THE LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY A HAPPY HOLIDAY (or whatever kind of celebratory festivity you wish to add). The Ledge is family to us all, so we ask that you include him in your season's greetings mail list. He doesn't have any family members close by and so he usually spends his holidays alone. Way back when, in the early days of Shuffle Function, we asked him if he had any plans for the holidays. He told us he'd be doing what he always did - going to a Seven-Eleven to eat a turkey sandwich, drink a slurpee, and then go home. We knew then that we had to do something, and the idea of the card shower was born. This was our chance to let him know he wasn't alone, and that he and his music is loved all over the world.
We will be giving out his mailing address a bunch on the radio show between now and then, but if you didn't get a chance to write it down when you heard us say it, here it is for you to use. You can decorate the envelope however you like, he likes lots of stars and spaceships, but here is his address:
Norman Carl Odam
Legendary Stardust Cowboy
P.O. Box 730742
San Jose, California
If you are feeling adventurous, include a self addressed stamped envelope. We cannot guarantee that you will hear back from The Ledge, but the odds are greatly increased that you will. If you do hear back from him, drop us an email and let us know. He has been very inventive with his replies in the past and we love hearing about it. We can't thank you enough for making our favorite cowboy a happy camper. He means the world to us, and we love to hear the excitement in his voice when he calls us during the morning show to let us know about all the cards he is getting. For his birthday this year he told us he got so many cards that the ladies at the post office couldn't believe it! This made him so happy, and a world with a happy Legendary Stardust Cowboy is a better world to live in. Thank you Radio Heroes!
