Pledge Drive with Blanche Fubar, Jackson Buck and David Cummings. Thanks folks.

Producer: Dale Connelly
News Host: Yvette Howie
Music Host: Brenda Bell Brown

Tonight on MinneCulture, a special pledge drive encore presentation that explores the history of KFAI, Fresh Air Inc. This documentary was produced by Ahndi Fridell and J. Otis Powell in 2003 for KFAI’s 25th anniversary, and this year, a companion piece is in the works to celebrate the station’s 35th birthday. Tonight we’ll take a look back at the evolution of KFAI community radio in the second of a two-part series.

Big ‘ol Freewheelin’ thanks go out to Ron Thums for hanging out this afternoon on the pledge drive show. Ron, half of team Ron & Jean, may be familiar to you from the show that they presented on KFAI “Radio Rumpus Room”. These days, if you’re available on Tuesday mornings, tune in to “The Morning Blend” as Ron & Jean provide a little musical backdrop to Dale Connelly’s magazine-style morning show. Thanks to everyone who pledged this afternoon. If you want to see the playlist for the show, click “Episode Details”. You’ll also be able to the archive of the show from that location.
