THE SHUFFLE FUNCTION 24 HOUR PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO SCHEDULE!



CALLING ALL RADIO HEROES!

THE SHUFFLE FUNCTION
24 HOUR PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO!

Starts: Thursday, April 27th @ 6:00 pm
Ends: Friday, April 28th @ 6:00 pm

KMSU 89.7fm/KMSK 91.3fm/kmsu.org


The Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-GO-GO is just two weeks away!  Shyboy Tim and Shelley will go 24 hours without sleep, surviving only on the basic human needs of caffeine, Rock & Roll, and your generosity!  Why would they do this?  BECAUSE KMSU IS WORTH IT!  They'll do whatever it takes to make sure this amazing radio station stays on the air, even if pulling a stunt like this means chopping one year off their lives*!

Every minute of this radio marathon is a blast, but here's a schedule of specific events that we have planned.  Put this stuff on your calendar and plan accordingly!  Better yet, stay up the whole time and listen to everything.  We could use the company.



SHUFFLE FUNCTION RADIO ROULETTE!
Thursday, April 27th @ nine p.m. and Friday, April 28th at noon!

The game so nice we play it twice!  Tune in for two intense rounds of Shuffle Function Radio Roulette.  We draw numbers to pick the record we play, flip a coin to select the side, and roll a ten sided die to determine the song we play. IT'S COMPLETELY RANDOM RADIO!


We have no idea what the radio gods have in store for us.  Sometimes it's one of the greatest hours of radio ever produced, and other times it makes you curse the birth of Marconi.  Either way, Radio Roulette is full of surprises, so don't miss it!


JANDEK: SOUNDS OF INSOMNIA
Friday, April 28th @ two a.m.

Why two a.m.?  Because two a.m. is the perfect time for Jandek, whose songs really inhabit that murky and mysterious hour, taking you to a haunted and personal place.  We've been featuring Jandek: Sounds Of Insomnia for a number of years now, and it's always one of our favorite parts of the marathon.  We turn off all the lights in the station, leaving only  the faint glow of the control board and the strobe of the telephone light when it rings.  We encourage you guys to tune in, particularly if you aren't already a Jandek initiate.  This could be the time that it all finally clicks.


SUNRISE WITH SUN RA
Friday, April 28th from four to six a.m.

Three years ago we set aside an hour for Gary Campbell (aka Maverick Slim) to come in and do an all Sun Ra set, but an hour just wasn't enough time.  That's why we've set aside TWO HOURS for Sunrise With Sun Ra!  It's a great way to get your bearings before we head into...


THE ALL VINYL MORNING SHOW!
Friday, April 28th from six to ten a.m.

We are going to play nothing but vinyl for four hours Friday morning!  It wakes us up, plus it gives us a chance to dig into some things that might not normally make the playlist.  We've been working to find some real gems, including new Record Store Day finds, to play for you guys that morning, and hopefully the playlist will convince you that KMSU is a pretty special place on the radio dial.


At some point we'll also be doing the MacArthur Park sing along, so start flexing those pipes and get ready for the broadway style breakdown!


THE FRYE!  LIVE IN STUDIO!
Friday, April 28th @ 4p.m

Are you kids hip to The Frye?  You will be soon! Ann and Joe will be joining us for an hour of special pledge related programming.  They'll be singing favorites, and spinning a few favorites, too.  Check them out on the interwebs and the Facebooks! Best case scenario:  We'll get to hear some great songs from them.  BETTER CASE SCENARIO:  The phones will be so crazy with last minute pledges that they will have to run to phones and take your pledges!  Either way, we all win!

From here on out its us desperately clawing for the finish line!  At this point caffeine is a joke, and the only thing that will help us is your donations!  CALL AND PLEDGE!  

Drop us a line if you have any questions!  shufflefunction@hotmail.com


The Spring 2017 Swag list will be published on Monday, April 17th (INTERGALACTIC BACON DAY) so check your interwebs for all the fancy thank-you gifts that KMSU will have for you!
