This the second and last program within KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive. This Encuentro, like the first Pledge Drive program, consists of songs that always incite a response, a comment a phone call, songs that have touched hearts and imaginations. Now is the time to support radio by, from and for the community: online or by phone, 612)375-9030
We are getting tantalizingly close to reaching our goal of $80,000. It’s the 13th and penultimate day of the KFAI 2011 Spring Pledge Drive and Charlie, Jojo and Brad along with Deborah and Bill continued to make the case for listener partnership with community radio and we heard some great music along the way.
Tonight we were honored to debut the excellent new The Lion of Judah Hath Prevailed EP from The Process meets Ghetto Priest. Also, played the extended version of “Most Dangerous Man/Free Up Yu Mind” from Eric Blowtorch & Prince Jazzbo (to announce Eric’s Minneapolis appearance 4/10), and debuted the heavy new Dub Is A Weapon album “Vaporized”.
It’s pledge drive! Louise and Caryl interview Georges Kiss, a French harpsichordist, who will appear in concert with Patrick Dillery at Sundin Hall on the campus of Hamline University on Wednesday, April 7. The duo will play Baroque music and a modern piece based on Latin American dances: the rhumba, the havanero, and others. The radio programs continues with a varied selection of old and new French music, including many from the thank you cd’s given to listeners who pledge on Bonjour Minnesota.
