I know it’s overkill, particularly after yesterday- yes, DreamHost sent most of you anywhere from two to six copies of the same email, and I spent far too much of my time replying to people explaining that, no, it was not my intention to overstuff anyone’s email box. I still have a couple down to go.
Nonetheless, I usually do send out an email ahead of my stint on Arizona Public Media, trying to help them make their numbers so we can turn on the radio or television and get news and other interesting programming whenever we like.
I always bring along a couple of gift certificates to sweeten the deal, so I’m just letting you know now that if you call in with a donation- or even without- during my 7 am to 9 am time slot, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one of them.
If I can drag myself down to campus by 7 am despite the fact that I work nights, I know that those of you who’d consider making a donation to Arizona Public Media are equally able to get up during that window and phone something in. I’ll be at 89.1 on your radio dial giving away gift certificates and enticing you to donate with my mellifluous morning voice as well, though I won’t flatter myself- I know it’s the gift certificates that will entice people, far more than my scratchy, pre-coffee, morning throat.
Anyhow, if you’re thinking of supporting Arizona Public Media, tomorrow between 7 and 9 am might be a good time to do it, as you could win a gift certificate to Feast, where you can hear my less scratchy, post-coffee voice.
