After saying goodbye to Ellis listeners I went on with a few angel tunes, thanking the station's angels who pledge to keep us going. Several listerners came in to speak at the mikes about the station. Thanks to the "angel" song cd's that were given as premiums, as was Richard's Storied Lives, and Jez Lowe's Live at The Davy Lamp and several new Solas releases to happy pledgers.

The station manager spoke about how there
is no playlist forced on the djs here. I read from the Washington Post
article sent on by Paul Stamler to the folk dj list, praising Britney Spears
(not) for her new release. Paul added that we are so lucky that we have
freedom to air what we love.
I also mentioned Paul's idea of stripping while on air as the pledges rolled in.

I pointed out that some of our programming
would have to change its name if we couldn't make pledges:
"Emotional Rescue" on Wednesday nights would become "Emotional Death"
"The Gumbo Shop" would be the "Gumbo Shopless"
Our talk show "The People Talk Back" would be "The People Sit Alone in their Living Room"
"As It Happens" would become " Nothing Happens"
"All Things Considered" would of course be " Nothing Considered."
A caller then mentioned that my show "Folk Plus" would obviously be "Folk Minus"
