Hey, Gang!  Shelley and I are up at the station doing last minute prep for the big show tomorrow night.  We had a fantastic start to the pledge drive this morning, with lots of you guys calling in and snatching up the new shirt, the Kinks Collection, and some of the Program Director For a Day slots.  Thank you for all that you do!  Every pledge is huge, and it gets us closer and closer to that final goal.

This afternoon we went out to the tower and made our offering to the Radio Gods.  We have a nice pile of fun out there for them, so we hope this means a successful marathon and TWO successful rounds of Radio Roulette.  By the way, we're doing rounds of radio roulette during the marathon.  The first time we're playing is at nine p.m. Thursday night, and the next is on Friday at noon.  Pledge while we're playing and you can pick a number for the record we play!  It's a lot of fun, so be sure to listen.

Anyway, here are a bunch of photos of our offering.  This looks like success, right?  RIGHT?!!!


If I was a Radio God I'd TOTALLY be cutting some slack.

As I was saying earlier, we had a strong start to the pledge drive, and we heard from a lot of amazing Radio Heroes.  The total pledge drive goal is a whopping $40,000, so there's a long way to go.  The good news is that if KMSU hits this goal we'll have enough to FINALLY get that transmitter we've been working so hard for over the last several years.  This transmitter will be state of the art, and the best part is you can actually get parts for it!  How sweet is that?

What we need right now is for you guys to pick up the phone, or e-mail us, and make that pledge.  Every pledge makes a difference, and they all add up to that final big goal.  You make a difference.  Without you there is no KMSU, and that is a terrible thing to imagine.  I don't want to live in a world like that!  Do you?  Of course not.

Call 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810.  If somebody is here we'll gladly walk you through the process.  It takes less than a minute usually, and then you can go about your day knowing you've done your part to keep a great radio station on the air.  If nobody is around, leave a message with a phone number so we can call you back.  DO NOT LEAVE ANY CREDIT CARD INFO IN THE MESSAGE!

Send us an e-mail at  Let us know how much you would like to pledge, any swag you are interested in, your name, address, and phone number, and we'll fill out all the paperwork.  You'll be sent a bill and you can settle up then!  DO NOT INCLUDE ANY CREDIT CARD INFO!

Text us during the morning show or the marathon at 507-389-5678 with the amount, any swag you are interested in, your name and address, and we'll fill out the paperwork for you.  DO NOT INCLUDE ANY CREDIT CARD INFO!

Go to and click on DONATE TO KMSU.  This will take you to the online University donation form. PLEASE SELECT KMSU AS THE RECIPIENT OF YOUR DONATION!  This is incredibly important, because otherwise your gift will go to a general fund. 

It's super easy.  If you are speaking to a volunteer at the station you can either ask to be billed or you can give us a credit card number.  Can't swing a larger pledge at the time?  You can also make payments!  Pay a little bit at a time until you are paid in full.  We have lots options to help you help us. 

Also, check out this sweet shirt design!  Pledge $50 now and you can wear one of these babies!

Check out all the swag we have available during the Spring Pledge Drive.  There's some pretty cool stuff available starting at $25 bucks and up, but you gotta pledge!  Please do so... NOW!

Thanks again, you guys.  You're the best.
