The Disco Godfather

Qapla'!!!

Thanks to all of you who called in, mailed in, walked in, and logged in, we made our fundraising goal this past week. You guys and gals are truly fantastic. For those of you who ordered the Grand National Championships T-Shirt, we will be getting them out to you ASAP.

The show this week was obviously very money-gathering oriented, so there's no playlist. If you'd like to listen to it, we've uploaded it to the Program Archives.

To celebrate this small measure of success, we will be putting on an extravaganza-style showcase of sight and sound.

Live Session

First off, Palantine will be coming in to play a live set at 11:30pm. We'll talk to the boys and hear some selections from their new album, Melee, as a preview of their CD release show at the New World Brewery on October 18th. There will also be performances by GNC favorites The Gleaming Amoebas and The Semis.

Movie Review

Also, we will spend a little time breaking down a classic, The Disco Godfather, starring Rudy Ray Moore. It's a heart-wrenching tale of basketball dreams, PCP, disco dancing, kung fu, and roller skates.





As always, thanks for listening. If you're a podcast subscriber, why don't you head on over to our iTunes page and leave us an honest comment.

Fundraising time



Howdy, friend.

It's a time of year that we all look forward to. I'm sorry. I mean, of course, that it's a time of year to which we all look forward. It's Fall Marathon time, our chance to gauge the impact we've made on your life. If you have anything that you can contribute to our station, and more specifically, our show, head over to WMNF.org to cast your vote for mediocre programming. If you'd rather surprise us at the last minute, call the station (813.238.8001) while we're on the air. That's Monday, October 6th, starting at 11pm EST.

Bear in mind, you can pledge your amount and then send your check afterwards, or you can sign up for the Circle of Friends and contribute at least $10 a month, which will be automatically deducted from your checking account. It's a very painless way to make a substantial difference for you community radio station.

And if that heartfelt plea didn't touch your wallet, here's the kicker. Introducing the Official Grand National Championships T-Shirt. It's available in long and short sleeves, and also in "women's" styles of shirts. Let us know what cut you're looking for, and we will provide. The minimum donation to get one of these bad-boys is $75. It is available exclusively to marathon donors, so act now. Thanks, as always, for your help.
