CJSW Funding Drive 2011 and Breaking The Tethers

The 2011 CJSW Funding Drive starts this coming Friday, October 21 and runs through October 28. This is an important time for those of us who are involved with the campus and community station - it's when we call on our loyal listeners to pledge financially to help CJSW prosper and grow. I'm hoping that many folks who enjoy Breaking The Tethers will come up with a little (or a lot!) of money during the Drive. There’s information on the Funding Drive at http://cjsw.com/funding/ and pledge info here and here.

Speaking of Breaking The Tethers and the Funding Drive, the BTT FD show will take place on Monday, October 24, 7-10 am MST. There will be a variety of pledge incentives offered during the show, including some CDs that have been played on the show in the last year along with four special mix CDs, again, all featuring material that has been broadcast on BTT since the last FD. There will only be one of each CD available so grab them while you can; each will be available at the $80 or higher level. Here's what's on each disc:

My #1 goal for the Funding Drive Breaking The Tethers program is to hit the $1000 level in pledges, while the show is on the air. This last point is important - Breaking The Tethers has reached the four-digit level in money but never quite while it has been on air; the pledges that took things over $1000 came just after the next program started. So, $1000 during the show - here's to hoping!

I should also note that I actually won't be hosting the show next Monday. I've got a conflicting conference in Vancouver, something that has been on the books for months. I will call in a few times but the main proceedings will be hosted by a gaggle of CJSW programmers, led by CJSW Program Director Joe Burima. Joe and team will do a great job so be sure to tune in!

The next "normal" edition of Breaking The Tethers will be Monday, October 31.
