Well, it happened here in 2013. Missed last week's post and cannot find the darn thing. It was a new show featuring, among others, Joe Pug. But alas, gone it seems to be. I'll get things back on track this week.
Today was a live pledge drive edition of the program. Thanks to everyone who called in--on two different occasions we had three lines all taking pledges at the same time. We raised $425 in an hour. Really appreciate your support of community radio. Thanks to Jim Gullickson and Shelley Pierce for taking calls and helping with the show.
