As part of Spark Syracuse's fundraising efforts, This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl will be reviving our most popular fundraising pitch: WHO NEEDS DANA & CARL? This Guest Programmer gimmick allows folks who donate $100 or more the opportunity to program the music for one three-hour slot on Westcott Radio and/or Spark Syracuse/WSPJ-FM. The money raised will help fund Spark's efforts to begin (and continue!) broadcasting as WSPJ 93.5 and 103.3 FM in Syracuse. This is the near-future terrestrial radio home of Westcott Radio programming; the webcast will continue at the same time.
PLEASE NOTE!! Yep, that's "note" with TWO exclamation points! As always, SIGNIFICANT RESTRICTIONS WILL APPLY. We're still in the process of fine-tuning the details, but it should wind up pretty similar to how we've done this in the past. We reserve the right to reject, in whole or in part, any programming that we deem inappropriate for any reason. Yes, even imaginary reasons. This is especially true after we've taken your money--no refunds! Bwa-ha-ha-haaaaa! Our previous Guest Programmers have been pretty happy with the deal, and we expect that you will be, too.
This fresh (and how!) edition of WHO NEEDS DANA & CARL? kicks off officially with our September 4th edition of This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio, which we're billing as "Radio Worth Paying For." Consider this the soft opening; if you wanna get your Guest Programming slot in now, operators are standing by. We encourage them to have a seat, and to turn up the music.
Got questions? Contact me! And here's a look back at our first big WHO NEEDS DANA & CARL? pitch in 2012. I've edited a few things here and there, but it's still worth reiterating that this is the old pitch from 2012, so therefore some details have changed, fercryinoutloud. QUESTIONS? CONTACT ME!
Meanwhile, here's a blast from our money-grubbin' past:
Once again, Syracuse Community Radio finds itself in a tight budget crunch, and is in need of a cash influx, stat. Although Westcott Radio and This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio remain independent of Syracuse Community Radio, we still support SCR's goal of establishing and maintaining a community FM radio station that can be heard throughout the Syracuse area; in fact, we hope to someday provide content for that station. Toward that end, Dana & Carl are sponsoring a fundraiser for Syracuse Community Radio, and at least two lucky donors will each win a chance to program a future episode of This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio.
