Yes, tomorrow is my first Tuesday Morning Blend as its regular host, but - this is where it gets hairy - it's all a Pledge Drive Show.
What? Yes! It's the KNON Winter Pledge Drive! Click that link & support community radio in Dallas - & maybe mention the Tuesday Morning Blend?
Back to me, though: do you see the predicament I am in? I am going to be doing my first show. But I am going to be on the radio begging people for money. Which is fine, but the sort of people who are most likely to give money to a radio show are people who are familiar with the host - & the previous host of the Tuesday Morning Blend, as I mentioned yesterday, is immensely beloved.
But of course I can't not ask for money, KNON is listener supported, & it needs every dollar it can get. It will be perfectly understandable if no one donates tomorrow. I accept that. Except.
Holy shit my self-esteem will take a beating if no one gives anything to the show! My history with pledge drives is that I am not good at them. So, frankly, the show tomorrow might be brutal.
Wanna listen? It's on from 7-9am central on 89.3 fm in Dallas & online at knon dot org.
Seriously. It's going to be brutal tomorrow.
