It's Time to Raise Money for the Station That Cut Our Time but Allows the Country and Western Shows to Flourish.. serious help us up our standings...

Please...

Uhhhh I have to admit, ever since we found out about the programming changes at KPFT I kind of pulled back on them and have not been paying much attention to what is going on, but this afternoon, like 5 minutes ago, I turned on my stereo to listen to the world music show and realized, it's fund raising time again.

Now listen, I'm mad at KPFT, true. You are probably mad at KPFT as well (though I only received 2 emails in our support so far, thanks y'all), but fact of the matter is, even though we lost one hour of Damage Control, we still have to press on.

The only way we can continue to do Damage Control is if we continue to support the station, financially during the fund drives 3-4 times per year.

Fact is, the only arguement we are really going to have, that they will listen to, is if we canhave some sort of good showing tonight and not only meet, but surpass our goal. WE HAVE TO SHOW KPFT THAT WE ARE VALID. We have to prove to them that there are A LOT of people out there listening to us. I know that a lot of people, on the streets of Houston, on lock, around the country and around the world rely on Damage Control to hear the real side of Houston rap. The station might not really know this though.

Tonight we really have to show out.

Now listen, I know that we always ask our listeners to become members by pledging at least $35 per year. Our member numbers are our greatest strength at this point. However, tonight, I am going to ask anyone and everyone out there listening to please pledge something. $5 would be cool. If you pledge $5 to us, then you can at least be a name on the list of people who rely on and enjoy Damage Control each week. We really need to show these people that yes you are out there.

Don't forget that students and people on a limited income can become members for $25. We also offer the "Angel Rate" for those who want to sponsor a prisoner for $25. Make someone who is locked down and cannot donate a member. That would mean a lot to us and to the person you sponsor.

I know I am begging y'all and you really have no obligation to help, but fact is, we don't get paid for this shit. We do it for the love of this music and for the love of the people making this music. Y'all really don't know some of the shit we have to go through every week just to make this show happen. It takes a lot of our time and also some of our money. This week we are REALLY asking for your support. In light of recent changes at the station, we need your support now more than ever.

Our goal is to get our hour back, and make the show 11 p.m. - 2 a.m. every Wednesday night. We CAN make this happen but we need YOU.

That being said, if we don't see any real support from y'all this fund drive, the fight is over. Cuz if you don't care, if the artists don't care, then we can't bust our backs for this shit and we'll just do the 2 hour show every week. I ask of you to please call in tonight and help us out. $5 man, Five Bucks...
