End of Year WSHU Pledge Drive

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It was our last pledge pitch for 2011 and we thank those who took the time to call and contribute. Indeed, we offer thanks to all who contributed during our 2011 pledge drives.

The show was a mix of what Profiles presents during the year: music by artists appearing in our broadcast area, new releases, old chestnuts, live in-studio performances and thematic programming.

And kudos again to WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich and his wife Ellen. Paul joined me in the pitching, while Ellen handled the phones.
