|A few years ago . . . but the same level of insanity remains.|
But it is not just the people of the station I'm obsessed with . . . it is the programming and the fact that NPR (through local, regional, and national programming) is the only broadcast outlet (and among the few outlets period) that gives long, deep looks at topics and subjects from breaking news to why the Nobel Prizes go to the people they go to. I don't think we'll ever be able to OVER support the things that are important to us but I sure do try.
I'm honored to, again this semi-annual drive, be involved with the station's pledge drive efforts. I'll be doing a few on-air shifts, I'll be answering phones, I'll be helping out with social media harassment and I'll be doing another round of "DonaSean" (as in donation but with the shun pronounced as Sean - I'm super, super crafty with the words and the English language and the stuff).
What is this year's theme? Self humiliation. Want to help? Here is how . . . we keep a running tally of how much my own little corner of the world gives to #PledgeKMUW efforts and as we pass the following thresholds, the following things happen . . .
(WE DID IT! $4,141 (including some matching funds) - THANK YOU, people!)
Only YOU can keep my Twitter stream "boob free" for another six months (it has been two full years now so I feel like we can keep the streak going) so SPREAD THE WORD! Any pledges FULFILLED that are tagged "DonaSean" on the pledge (you can enter it in the special comments blank through the website or tell your volunteer on the phone or in person) will be credited to the total and every dollar helps (but every thousand dollars is way, way more fun) AND that are Tweeted at me (@SeanCAmore) or e-mailed to me (SeanCAmore-at-Gmail-dot-com) or mentioned as a comment on this here post will help.
CALL 6AM - 6PMish 10/16 - 10/26ish - (316) 978-6700

I'll keep everyone updated on how we are doing against our goal (which is a big $4,000 this drive).
THANK YOU for your patience as I go crazy for the next two weeks over this drive and THANK YOU (even more) for breaking out your piggy bank, coffee fund, boob job savings, or "walking around money" and giving it to KMUW.
