We have some special programming coming up during the pledge drive that you guys might be interested in, so take a look at this schedule and plan accordingly.

Thursday, October 29th @ 6:00pm - SHUFFLE FUNCTION RADIO ROULETTE

What's more terrifying for two radio control freaks than turning over their playlist to random chance? Lots of stuff, but as far as radio goes, there's nothing scarier.  That's why we always play Radio Roulette during the Halloween season.  We draw numbers, flip coins and roll dice to determine what gets played during the show, and since all the albums are Ktel compilations it's a veritable minefield.  There's a lot of great stuff on these records, but there's also a TON of terrible stuff, too.  The radio gods pick our playlist, so it could either be the best or worst radio you've ever heard.

How did this show turnout?  You're gonna have to tune in to find out.  Hope you like French Canadian music!

Friday, October 30th from 6-9a.m - THE PURPLE KNIF SHOW!

This is a Shuffle Function Halloween tradition.  Since The Cramps are basically the house band for Halloween, and because we like to make a big deal out of the holiday, we're playing Lux Interior's Purple Knif Show.  Sometime in 1984 Lux Interior took over a radio station in Hollywood and played the songs that informed The Cramps.  There's some real gems on this show, including some songs that the band covered, and Lux does it up big with old school DJ tricks.  It's a blast, and, as one listener pointed out. it's a record on the radio of Lux Interior playing records on the radio.  MIND BLOWN.

Friday, November 6th from 6-9a.m. - POLKA TIL YOU PUKE!

THREE HOURS POLKA ON THE RADIO?!!! YES!  AND YOU'RE WELCOME!  We've been doing Polka Til You Puke as part of the Fall Pledge Drive since we started the morning show over a decade ago, and it has become a beloved tradition.  Polka is party music, and it turns out it's also pledging music, because we hear from so many amazing listeners who step up during this show and give generously.  We'll be joined by Concertina Hall Of Famer Ambrose Kodet, as well as professional polka fan Maude, for three hours of good time music and lots of laughs.
