Pop Recon returns to the WPRB airwaves tonight, Friday 10/3 at 7PM ET, with new interviews from Stereolab (4AD Records) and Philadelphia’s punk legends the Dead Milkmen.
Pop Recon is WPRB’s first foray into the world of podcasting, featuring interviews with bands and more, not to mention unearthing interviews from the station archives. Maria T, along with station staff, work hard to keep the podcast free and flowing. Show your support for unique programs like Pop Recon by making a tax-deductible donation today.
Listeners who pledge $5.00 or more between 5 and 8:30PM today will receive a Pop Recon logo button, in addition to the other premiums available. This button won’t be available during any other show during the membership drive, so don’t miss out!
Greetings from WPRB! It’s about 10:00 PM on the evening of the second day of the 2008 Membership Drive, and we’ve been having a lot of fun as we’re here giving away CDs and DVDs and books and tickets and gift cards and all of our WPRB swag, all over the place. The Drive continues until Oct. 8th, so head on over to pledge.wprb.com and join WPRB!
And don’t forget, every person who donates that’s living in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or New York over the age of 18 is eligible to win a brand new, 2008 Toyota Yaris, which we’ll be giving away after the Drive. Check out more updates about the Membership Drive, after the jump!
I’ve been on-the-air guest-hosting shows since 6 PM tonight, and it’s been some of the most interesting time I’ve spent here at ‘PRB. Just being able to listen to a solid 6+ hour swath of music that spans just about every genre you can imagine… it’s pretty mindblowing, but you know what? We do it on a regular basis, day in and day out. I think the Membership Drive is not just about fund-raising and supporting the station; for us DJs and staff, it’s about learning just exactly why the station is so valuable and so precious. I’ve had some very interesting conversations with listeners as they call in to pledge, and it’s really been very humbling to hear all the great things people are telling us about what WPRB means to them. Our listeners are after all, the only reason why we’re here!
Eventually I’ll find a chance to sleep… but until then, make sure to head on over to pledge.wprb.com, or call 609-258-1033, to make a pledge now!
P.S. Don’t forget about our Car Sweepstakes this Membership Drive! That 2008 Toyota Yaris is just begging for a new owner, and she can be all yours when you donate to WPRB!
Not only can you listen to DJ Altitude Sickness kick out the Tupperware Jams, you can watch along at home.
If the above doesn’t work, check it out right here!
We’re three and a half hours into the drive and so much has happened already! Here are some photos taken by Maria T. Enjoy.
