The Spring Pledge Drive is underway at KMSU and on today's show we were doing our best to try to convince listeners to support this truly unique and independent voice within our community. Due to recent funding shortages, the stakes have been raised this time around. Although KMSU receives some dollars from the state/university, it still relies on listener support to cover roughly 40% of its operating costs. Our goal at the station is to raise $30,000 and we are well on our way to meeting this goal. But, we still need to hear from you! Please consider giving us a call at 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810 to make a pledge. You can also pledge on-line by heading over to

We had a couple of Free Form Freakout exclusive premiums that we were offering on our show. We had three copies of the latest Russell Hoke LP entitled "Driftwood" to giveaway, which are now all gone. We also were offering, thanks to our good friends at Soft Abuse Records, the brand new Pumice CD called "Puny" for those who pledged $25 or more to the station. We still have a couple of copies of this left, so make a pledge to support independent public radio and pick up an incredible album in the process. Let us know when you do and we'll send this out to you right away. Everybody wins.
