"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 3/11/2007

Well, we survived the first week of Radiothon at WHUS. Many thanks to each of you who took the time to call in and make a pledge (and get your choice of some pretty terrific BG CDs). We know it's not particularly enjoyable to tune in to listen to a show that's supposed to play music for 3 hours, and find that the radio folks are looking to you for some funds. The truth is that at WHUS, our engineers and operations board are always looking for ways to upgrade our equipment and our sound, and our studios are moving this summer into our new home in the Student Union at UCONN. All of this costs money, and we hope you value our BG programming enough to call in and make a pledge of support. For the past several years, the BG Cafe has been able to bring in a lot of money during Radiothon -- hence, our station-set "show goal" is pretty high this year. We have been asked to bring in $2,500 for 2 weeks of Radiothon. Our hope was to hit the halfway mark yesterday, but that just didn't happen. Did we come close? Yes, as I believe we nearly made it to $1,000. That is an awesome amount of money -- THANK YOU to everyone who pledged! Obviously, we'd like to get a bit closer to our ambitious goal of $2,500 next Sunday, but at this writing, there's still a chance that the show will be preempted for Women's NCAA Basketball action. We'll keep you posted. We appreciate your patience during Radiothon, and, of course, say thanks once again for supporting us in whatever way you can!

Our playlist for Sunday's show was drawn mostly from CDs available as premiums for Radiothon. The exception was the Stanley tune (a request promised to a loyal listener) and the opening "Katy Hill."
