Our CD "thank you gifts" for Radiothon....

As we've mentioned on the air for the last couple of weeks, Radiothon begins at WHUS this Saturday, March 10th at 5AM and runs through Sunday, March 18th at 10PM. That means that for two Sundays -- any sports preemptions, notwithstanding -- we'll be conducting our own portion of Radiothon at Bluegrass Cafe. When we sent the word out to the various record labels and performers, we received many, many excellent CDs to offer you as "thank you gifts" when you make your pledge to Bluegrass Cafe. At this point, I'm not 100% sure of the pledge amount you will need to make to pick up one of the CD premiums, but as soon as I can confirm it, I'll let you know. Many thanks to all of our supporters!

This is not a complete list of the CDs we'll have to offer, and you should know that we do have multiple copies of some of the above titles. If you see something in the list that's a "must have," please call early in the show to make your pledge this Sunday. While we really don't like "begging" our listeners for money, in another way, we do enjoy Radiothon, as it allows us to prove to WHUS that there are folks out there who faithfully listen to (and, we hope, appreciate) the Bluegrass Cafe. Thanks!!
