A Smelley Good Time During Pledge Drive

It’s pledge drive time at KWMR and that means we get to have a deep, intimate conversation with Red Meat‘s Smelley Kelley on Bakerfield & Beyond.  We wasted on time devolving into whether we were wearing pants or not – radio offers certain liberties.  We set a lofty goal of raising $1,000 for the station.  By the end of two hours we have gotten half that, but everything counts and we appreciate every pledge.  And a big thanks to Smelley for spending time on the phone with us trying to roust folks pledge their support to this little community radio station.  Thanks for everyone who listened and pledged.

And if you are in the San Francisco area on April 27, you can help Red Meat celebrate their 20th year as a band at the 23 Club in Brisbane, CA.
