Surely, you've noticed the pledge drive efforts going on over at KKXT-91.7 FM of late, yeah? Us too.
Annoying? Mostly. Necessary? Most definitely, given the station's public radio domain.
But it's not all bad: Anyone and everyone who pledged to the station this week--and anyone and everyone who does so up until 9 o'clock tonight--will be entered into the station's Golden Ticket contest, which actually, is a pretty sweet deal. The gist of it: All of the station's new members' names will be put into a pot and one winner will be selected at random to win free tickets to see shows this summer from The National, Jack Johnson, Sheryl Crow, Tom Petty, Dave Matthews, Jackson Browne, Kings of Leon, The Black Crowes, John Mayer, The Lilith Fair, Crowded House, The Hold Steady, Jamie Cullum, The New Pornographers, Keane, Ingrid Michaelson, Barenaked Ladies, Natalie Merchant, Psychedelic Furs, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Mates of State, Free Energy, Colin Hay, Delta Spirit, Built to Spill, Rooney, Bob Schneider, Grupo Fantasma, Eleven Hundred Springs, Silversun Pickups, Maps & Atlases, The Go-Go's, The Flatlanders, Charlie Mars, Here We Go Magic and Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears. Yes, all of them.
Go here to donate and enter the raffle. You have till 9 p.m.
