Yes indeedy, folks…the time has come where we beat the fund drums and help generate that cash money dough cheddar that allows us to keep the lights on and do what we do.
I know a good number of you folks catch the show on the afterward tip via the listen links on the website. What I do want you to know is that I took this show with one purpose:
TO KEEP GOOD MUSIC ALIVE.
Prior to Soundwaves hitting the airwaves, there weren’t many reasons to turn your radio on. Programming had become stale on other stations, the “music” being played was plastic and soulless, and more importantly, it was evident that the people steering the ship on these other stations didn’t give two shits about the music nor the people whose eardrums said music was reaching.
As most of you know by now, we do things a bit different here at KPFK. This station has, for the past 50 years, been a vanguard and champion for truth. Whether it be inspirational programming like InnerVision or REAL news being broadcasted on Free Speech Radio, this station has always been and will continue to be FOR the people.
I am you, and you are me. I have a day job that keeps me paying my student loans and making my Men’s Wearhouse payments. However, I do this show for YOU because I, above all else, LOVE THE MUSIC.
To show our appreciation, we at Soundwaves KPFK keep bringing you “the soundtrack of the worldwide web” in 2-hour chunks every Saturday from noon to 2pm. In addition, we keep you fed with exclusive mixes and download treats on the Soundwaves website.
These past 7 months have been a fantastic journey as we have found our rhythm and brought you that musical goodness.
Now all we ask is that you find it in your heart to break open that velcro wallet and show a little love back in our direction.
See you on them airwaves, folks!!
Peace and blessings…
