4/3/2012 The Pop Shop


Did you know that on April 3, 1973, Motorola exec Martin Cooper introduced the first cell? It was bigger than his head and weighed about 5 lbs, but thanks to Marty it's easy today to call KFAI and make a pledge! Liberty Finch is standing by at 612-375-9030 to take your call, while DJ Izzy mans the wheels of steel. Thanks to all who've pledged and to rap partners Scott G. Hanson and Larry Englund for their support. Giving is fun!
