Dear Listeners,

The power-play of the everyday
The wind that blows and blows away
The sunken ship and the drunken mind
The things you get get left behind

This is Rock And Roll Radio

Last night's show was the CIUT 89.5 FM Spring Membership Drive Special Edition on "Money and Telephones". That's right, songs all about money and/or Telephones, featuring DJ Private caller.

To be honest, we did not receive a single phone call on the pledge line, but we did not let that effect our performance. It is true, Rock And Roll Radio has never been a big player in the financial scene. A distinct absence of revenue, in fact, defines the DIY, "by any mean necessary", "bootstrap your way to the top" spirit of the show.

All that being said, please feel free to support community radio by donating immediately to Rock And Roll Radio. It is fast, easy and safe to donate online. You can also donate by calling 416-946-7800 or 1-888-204-8976, which will put you in touch with a real live volunteer waiting to take your pledge. See the CIUT website for details on prizes, tax deductions and other rewards for your financial support.

In addition to all CIUT-related prizes, if you donate $100.00 or more you will receive a personalized Tarot card reading care of the Rock And Roll Doctor!

Coming up next week - a special theme show on Fast Living. This episode will include songs about the lifestyles of the fast and dangerous: racing in the street, growing up fast, the race against time, sex/drugs/rock 'n' roll, fast cars, fast bikes, fast men, fast women and all varieties of temporal transgression. A preemptive thank you to Rock And Roll Radio Interns Nick Kewin and Mike Alfano for their research.
