#33: August 13, 2011 - Pledge Drive
'Fanatics! It is Pledge Drive time at Tha K!!! It is time to show your love for NPR. If any of you Fanatics listened to our show during the last drive, you will remember we had prepared quite a bit of material that was written exclusively for that broadcast. This time around, Engineer X and I have upped the ante. Truth be told, we have been working on all this for weeks in great anticipation. It’s Friday afternoon and I am going to write up some more ideas later tonight. We cannot wait to roll out all the stuff we have put together and lay it on you.
The pledge drive is important. None of you are stupid, so there is no need to tell you why KCRW needs as many members as possible. It’s always a struggle, a great one, the right one for sure, but a struggle nonetheless. That being said, it doesn’t have to be a drag. So, X and I have worked on all this material and are treating the two hours as an opportunity to take the show to a whole different level and hopefully the time flies by. If you have not become a member, during our shift is the time to do it. Make me look good to my bosses!'
