It's the final day of Pledge-O-Rama 2017 and once again our listeners have come through in fine fashion and donated generously to help the station to keep going and growing! In a last-ditch attempt to get closer to my personal goal, I came down to UMFM ridiculously early to host my own morning show!
Our pal Gail Comfort was, unfortunately, unable to make it in for Pledge-O-Rama this year, so we called in some backup in the form of a chat with one of Gail's favourites, Oh Susanna, in an effort to raise a little bit of money for the station that we love.
It's time once again for UMFM Pledge-O-Rama, where we ask our wonderful listeners to show some support and love for the station to keep us going and growing.
Along to show their support today, we have a chat with Christina Martin, as well as in-studio live performances by Jay Aymar and JP Hoe!
On this, our first episode of our 16th year on the air, we pay tribute to the great Tom Petty, preview some exciting upcoming events and spin some great new music! Get ready for the Tell the Band to Go Home Pledge-O-Rama Spectacular next Sunday! Tune in and support UMFM!
This is one of those "standby" episodes that you might hear again some day, but it's so darn good that you surely won't mind!
Hanging out at music festivals (especially smaller ones), you hear a lot of artists covering other artists. This episode is full to the brim with classic songs that have been covered by others in my recent travels.
