This the second and last program within KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive. This Encuentro, like the first Pledge Drive program, consists of songs that always incite a response, a comment a phone call, songs that have touched hearts and imaginations. Now is the time to support radio by, from and for the community: online or by phone, 612)375-9030
We are getting tantalizingly close to reaching our goal of $80,000. It’s the 13th and penultimate day of the KFAI 2011 Spring Pledge Drive and Charlie, Jojo and Brad along with Deborah and Bill continued to make the case for listener partnership with community radio and we heard some great music along the way.
4/7 in a nutshell…
Pledge drive edition week 2, and our Rocket Ship visits (Derrick Morgan’s) The Moon and The Planets (band) with their Follow the Leader. And no, I’m NOT dreaming… Kid-Nap is, and Hal Blaine’s even Hallucinating, to boot! But they’re not imagining Sammy Kaye Talking to the Animals by the light or Joe Loco’s Silvery Moon, ‘cuz that’s actually happening! In the 4(+2)@4, lollies are getting popped by Millie Small, the mysterious fictitious Fizzy, Malaysia’s finest Gerhana Ska Cinta, 2Toners Bad Manners and The Selecter, and originator Barbie (not Marvin’s aunt) Gaye. The Strange Tenants kick off a month-long GotchaSKAvered tribute to Prince Buster’s fave gangster Al Capone, and the Tokyo Ska make a respectable showing, complete with Shiina Ringo. By the way, we’d love it if she’d cut 2 more skas so we could make her our 4@4 feature at some point in the future. OK, everybody, now: Dreeeeeeamm aaahhh-nnn!
