Yikes! Tomorrow is the first day of the Spring Pledge Drive on KNON! & who has the third show of the Pledge Drive? This guy! I repeat: Yikes!
Ever since my first Pledge Drive, which was at KVRX, in which I did terribly, I have made the mistake of having my self-esteem tied up with how I do with raising money. I've never been good at raising money, & I've never been a terribly popular disc jockey. But what I want of course is to help the stations that kindly, foolishly let me deejay on their airwaves by making sure they can afford to continue broadcasting. When I can't do that, it's even worse than the feeling of being disliked (or, worse, ignored).
During the first Pledge Drive this year, I decided on a simple strategy: bring a little Self Help Radio to the Tuesday Morning Blend. So, my first Pledge Drive show was about money, & my second show was about kissing (since it was the day before Valentine's Day). I think I did okay.
Tomorrow, I'll do a show about monkeys. Maybe monkeys will delight listeners enough to open their wallets for KNON? I sure hope so!
Wish me luck. I will definitely need it.
