It’s the WMSE one-day, online drive, and as you might know as a loyal listener, we finished our Fall Membership Drive just short of our $100K goal. $7500 short to be exact. Click the above image of our amazing 2013 WMSE wall calendar (featuring photographs by Stanley Ryan Jones of Milwaukee’s underground dance club scene from the 80’s and 90’s) and pick up a calendar, signed by Stanley, himself (only 100 of these available!) and help out your favorite frontier radio station while doing so. Stanley fans can also tune in tonight on Radio Drill Time with WMSE Station Manager Tom Crawford for a special program with Stanley in the co-host seat.
Also, don’t forget that the rest of the WMSE staff will be at Tonic Tavern tonight, with your pledged-for WMSE calendars, hats & scarves and track jackets in tow for an official thank you gift pick-up party. WMSE’s Development Director Justin Shoman details, “This event is your chance to celebrate free-form independent programming with other dedicated members that make the programs on WMSE a reality. It is also your last chance to pick-up your Fall Membership gift before we ship everything on Friday, December 14th. Bring your member card to Tonic on December 13th, show it to a volunteer at the WMSE table and we’ll set you up with a free beverage courtesy our friends at Tonic Tavern. If you cannot find your card, no worries. I’ll have the database on hand at the WMSE table so I can look everyone up.
“Speaking on behalf of all of the staff at WMSE, we are really looking forward to this opportunity to hang out, and get to know more of the WMSE community over a beverage and some good tunes provided by yours truly. We’ll have snacks available too. The Tonic Tavern located at 2335 South Kinnickinnic Avenue in Milwaukee and the WMSE Member event runs from 4pm to 8pm. We’ll see you there!”
