Dear friends…

I will once again be on the air today (3/27) from 12-2pm asking for your financial pledges of support for The Roots Music Project, 89.1 WEMU and National Public Radio in general. Thanks to everybody who gave last week! I appreciate it!

We will be wrapping up the whole Fundraiser tomorrow at 2pm so it is imperative that The Roots Music Project make a good showing to meet all of our overall goals and to keep Roots & Americana music on the FM airwaves.

Do you love Bluegrass, Folk, Country, Blues and Rockabilly on the radio? Please be generous and help keep the music flowing.

I will have some special guests helping me out in the studio tomorrow and I will also play plenty of music in between asking for your money!

Here are the pertinent details again:
