Fall Pledge Drive

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s WSHU’s Fall Pledge Drive and with this program we’re harvesting in dollars to help support WSHU Public Radio and the folk music on the airwaves. The show was based on our annual “Songs of the Harvest” theme.

Bouquets and blessings to all of you listeners who took time to call in and offer a pledge and generous comments. Special thanks to WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich who did the night’s pledge pitching with us and his wife Ellen, a WSHU staff member, who handled the phones and computer tallying.
