This was the second weekend of our Spring pledge drive. I want to send out a big Thank you to all of the listeners who have made their financial contribution to KRVM.
Since Money is what the pledge drive is all about I choose Chuck Cannon's Song "Money" to start the show. The first line in the song is "Money, I ain't got enough." and the last line is "Money, You can't take it with you when you go." What falls in between is our never ending struggle to acquire more money. I ended the show with Cannon's other song about money called "Money Don't Matter". This song starts with the fact that we spend most of our lives trying to make money and evolves into what our world might be like if money didn't matter any more. He says "I wish Love was a coin of the realm. Where everyone is rich and nobody is poor."
Both songs talk to me during this time when we reach out to our listening community for the financial support to continue broadcasting. If Love were money KRVM would never have to worry about how to keep the bills paid to stay on the air, because this community has shown us a lot of love over the years. However, KRVM has to earn money to pay the bills which allow us to continue bring "Real Variety In Music" to the airwaves of western Oregon. Please share a little love by donating generously to KRVM today! Thank you.
