Playlist Oct. 21, 2006 (Roman Numerals in-studio) (2nd Week Pledge Drive)

Many thanks to anyone who pledged their support on 90.1 FM this pledge drive. I don't know what the final number is, but it's over 90,000 for the whole week, including the silent donation drive (via US Post), and online as well as on-air pledges.

It was such a pleasure having Billy Smith of Roman Numerals on the show tonight. Hopefully, our conversation was somewhat entertaining to listen to. It's so hard to consider how it sounds from the other side of the radio when you're in the middle of it. I'm sure the following is not a complete list. I'm going to fix it as soon as I get the back-up recording.

We Need You! + Roman Numerals next week!

Hello, faithful and new listeners alike! As of yesterday, 90.1FM KKFI began our Fall On-air Pledge Drive! What does that mean exactly? This is that crucial time when we appeal to our listeners for pledges in order to help increase our membership and raise money to cover our operating costs. The Fall 2006 On-Air Fund Drive runs through Saturday 10/21, so please call 816-931-3122 and pledge your support on your favorite programs!

Next week (10/21), I'll be having local band Roman Numerals drop in! They're coming in to help pledge pitch, and they'll be doing their version of Retro Red-eye Express for you, so there's no telling what gems they'll bring in from their collection!

Listen to Retro Red-Eye Express and your other favorite KKFI programs online by going to (click on "Streaming") OR, if you're in the Greater Kansas City area, by tuning your radio to 90.1 FM KKFI.

Remember to tune in tonight and every Saturday night from 11pm to 1am (CT) for retro-y goodness!
