2014 WPRB Membership Drive show: HITS

October 2nd, 2014

103.3 fm WPRB’s 2014 Membership Drive kicks off Monday. My lone show of this year’s week-long drive will be on Wednesday, October 8 from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm ET.

Mark your calendar.

Seriously.

You can also find me joining Chester with Totally Wired on Thursday night from 9:00 pm ET – 11:00 pm ET.

WPRB can’t remain “community supported independent radio” without support from the community.

This is the one time of year that WPRB calls upon its listeners to show financial support to keep the station independent, innovative, commercial-free and competitive in a crowded digital world.

If you’ve given in years past, I am sure I can count on you again.

I’d especially love to hear from those of you who haven’t pledged previously and get you to join the WPRB family for the first time.

Last year I came up short of my goal of 100 pledges in three hours.

If we work together, that goal can be accomplished in 2014.

This year’s theme for my program pays tribute to HITS, my definition (and yours) of catchy, infectious anthems across many genres that will get you on your feet. I’m going to exhilarate and exhaust you for the entire show. Promise.

Please let me know if you have requests and I’ll do by best to honor them. What says HITS to you?

I’ll have ridiculous prize packages to give away each hour for those who contribute $45 or more. You’ll get solid odds to walk away with a box of records from the likes of Dark Entries, Last Laugh, Siltbreeze, Taang!, Castle Face and other labels you hear frequently on the station’s airwaves during my show, not to mention a pair of tickets to see The Grifters’ reunion show in New York City as part of an amazing grand prize package.

That’s on top of the incredible WPRB-branded stickers, shirts, flask (flask?), backpack (backpack?!) and other “thank you” gifts available starting at a $15 donation level.

ALL PLEDGES ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Thank you in advance for your support of WPRB’s unique freeform programming during this year’s drive. You can pledge on-line here or by calling 609-258-1033.

Pledging during my show sends a strong message that my program matters to you, but pledging at some point during the drive is really the most important thing.

Thank you!

Let’s do this!

Jon Solomon
