UMFM’s annual Pledge-O-Rama is here! This is the time of year when we appeal to you, the listener, to help us keep alive and get better at what we do. We need your help to pay the bills and help us with special projects, like this year’s goal of enough money to buy a new transmitter for the station! But it’s not just all about the money, we’ve got prizes and incentives to give away, requests/dedications for our supporters, and a very special live guest, Jaxon Haldane, who dropped by to chat and play some songs!
Today, a special blast from the past episode as I’m joined by the person who gave me my start on UMFM and my time slot, Lisa-Marie Serafin. She hosted Songwriters’ Circle on UMFM bi-weekly, and I was her borad operator/co-host. When she moved off to Quebec, I eventually inherited the slot and have been firmly entrenched ever since. Before hosting the show, Lisa-Marie was primarily a fine singer/songwriter, and she’s slowly making a return to performing. It was a pleasure to have her back on air and in the booth after 12 years!
