Thank you

Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far in WMBR's 2008 fundraiser. Special thanks to everyone who has pledged so far for Coffeetime. If you haven't yet, you can still do so (and receive some of our nice thank you gifts) at (I really like the eco-combo premium set of the green grocery tote plus eco-friendly USB flash drive for a pledge of $100. Several people took advantage of this during Backwoods yesterday.)

And thanks to the WMBR deejays who helped me during Coffeetime: Jesse Kaminksy, John Funke, Larry Azrin, Bruce Sylvester, Ben Shanks, and Keith Sawyer for phone duty, laughs, and encouragement and Joan Hathaway and Doug Gesler for smiles and sweetness post-show.

When it comes down to it, WMBR is a nice group of people, listeners and station members -- one big family together. And I can say this as a station member for 17 years and, before that, as a very dedicated listener. We've got a special thing going here.

Fundraising week continues up to Wednesday night. I'll be helping Julia with Africa Kabisa today, Charlie with Research & Development tomorrow, and Jesse with The Intercontinental on Wednesday. It's one of my favorite times of the year.
