We only get the one chance at doing our 6,000th morning show and so we asked our listeners to come up with some unique ways to celebrate the occasion. Over the last few weeks we received a lot of great suggestions, but one in particular really stood out to us. It involves doing something that we've never done before. And so without further adieu .... DRUM ROLL PLEASE?

This Thursday March 10th we will be 
hosting a live Shuffle Function Morning Show from the St. Peter Food Co-op, 
and you are all invited to join us!

The great folks at The St. Peter Food Co-op are going to open up an hour early to accommodate our radio show hours and so they will be open at 6 a.m. this Thursday morning. We will be setting up Radio Shop in the Deli and we plan on giving away Shuffle Function swag to visitors throughout the morning show. Odds are if you stop in to say hello and grab some breakfast you will be walking out the Co-op doors with a retro Shuffle Function t-shirt! We also have some on-air surprises and special guests joining us this Thursday morning,  so you will want to be sure to stop by the St. Peter Food Co-op or tune in from 6 to 9 a.m.

Rob is getting up early to open up the Co-op for all of us music geeks!
We started the Shuffle Function Morning show nearly 12 years ago, and its still our favorite three hours of the day. Our playlist for the first morning show is not too far off from what you'd hear us play today. Don't believe me? Here is the first playlist:

From day one the St. Peter Food Co-op has been underwriting Shuffle Function Morning Show. We can't thank them enough for their continued support over the years, and celebrating at the Co-op seems perfect. The last piece of the puzzle is you! Stop by the St. Peter Food Co-op from 6 to 9 a.m. to celebrate with us. We have said this before, and we will say it again: KMSU has the best listeners in the world! Let us thank you in person for tuning in to Shuffle Function every morning and listening to two people spin some records and geek out on the radio.

If you listen to the show then you know that THE ST. PETER FOOD CO-OP IS LOCATED OFF OF MULBERRY STREET IN DOWNTOWN ST. PETER. EVERYONE IS WELCOME EVERYDAY! If your back is to Iowa, the Co-op will be on your left hand side. If you are running towards Iowa, it will be on your right. We will see you bright and early this Thursday morning!
