14.3.23 08:32 (read in Vince voice) I would suggest that Mister Cena has made a mistake, a poor decision if you will, in his attempt to draw focus towards his love of Vince McMahon
14.3.23 08:30 Hey so @JohnCena is a little sexual misconduct okay as a treat or perhaps you might like to get on the record that your perspective is that sexual misconduct is a bad thing which shouldn't be tacitly encouraged or AT THE VERY LEAST not so easily ignored? RT @WONF4W: John Cena was asked by @AP if it's tough to reconcile the feelings he has toward Vince McMahon with the sexual misconduct allegations that have been made against him: https://twitter.com/WONF4W/status/1635631377831055360 https://pic.twitter.com/0clgxet521

Here's a two hour taste of what I do on the air, featuring Nora, Mason's kid, Mason, Mason's kid and Mason's kid. (I think Fern liked my hair.) I also got to include new music from Metallica, Michael Bolton, Nation of Language, Róisín Murphy, Pardon the Interruption, Durand Jones and - how could I not - Shaquille O'Neal. Sprinkled throughout are twelve requests from KFAI listeners, some of the most musically literate tastemakers in the Twin Cities - and I'm not just saying that because I wanted their money. Because I also want yours! Fundraising info in comment number one!

A couple of times a year I ask you to open your hearts and your wallets in support of Fresh Air Community Radio. I've had the privilege to share new new music alongside your requests since July, 2020 but have been volunteering for KFAI going back at least seven years. My man currently in Studio 4, Lynval Jackson, just said on the air that he has been volunteering since the 1980s! Can you imagine? In 2023, radio is way less fun across the spectrum with only a precious few delivering a true local community experience for listeners. That kind of media needs to survive and thrive especially as the "big" players get ever more homogenized causing the underrepresented to get even more cynical that anybody out there will tell their stories. KFAI is committed to bringing those voices and perspectives to the forefront. They also let a middle-aged cishet white guy on every Saturday at 5 for a coupla hours, so it isn't ALL great... but sometimes it's pretty great.

You can help us out with a donation three ways!
1. Go visit kfai.org and smash that Donate button! Mention me or Weekend on Demand in the comment box so we know I guilted you!
2. Call 612 375 9030 (through Thursday, 3/23) and give your information to a waiting, willing live operator
3. For some reason, some of you just wanna go through Facebook to do this. Okay, fine, here's a Facebook fundraiser. Let me know if you'd like any gifts from us (OR, if you did this back in October and were expecting something that never came, please let me know that, too!)

Putting my money where my mouth is, I'll kick in an additional five bucks for EVERY donation of five or more that comes in on behalf of Weekend on Demand - that would double YOUR donation of five dollars if that's all you can do.

10.3.23 17:15 However, Mayor Frey is still a big fan.
10.3.23 17:15 In the two years since allegations of sexual abuse and sexual assault were made and extensively reported on, Team Tillmann-Hauser have attemped to book five shows. Four haven't happened, including announced shows at PNA Hall and in Chicago.
10.3.23 17:13 A little over a month back, a graphic touting three Har Mar Superstar shows was posted from the Har Mar Superstar page. While the "free" show at the casino is taking place tonight, the Fargo show was never announced, while the Sioux Falls show was later cancelled (cont) https://pic.twitter.com/MApyE0BJ6v
10.3.23 17:00 
Friday news dump: While he's taking his first victory lap tonight, one thing you might take comfort from is the knowledge that in the original graphic, still available on Facebook if you know where to look, THREE shows were listed.

The free one at the casino tonight is the one still happening. Sadly, "The Turtle Will Surprise You."

The second one listed for Fargo never seemed to get announced and the venue wouldn't confirm or deny if it had ever had his show booked.

The third one listed for Sioux Falls WAS announced, but the venue was shortly thereafter removed from the "hosts" of the Facebook Event page and today when you click on the link to buy tickets, it takes you to a blank page. It appears to still exist as a Facebook Event merely for optics.

That would make the running total since the allegations two years ago 1 for 5 on shows actually happening, with previously announced gigs for PNA Hall ("rescheduled to a larger venue due to demand" but really silently disappeared) and Reggie's Bar in Chicago (silently disappeared) also not taking place.

Obviously 0 for 5 would be a better outcome, but at least nobody's paid a dime in ticket charges to see him perform yet.

Shows are no longer announced or even mentioned on Twitter - one could speculate that that's because it's harder to control the replies there.

It seems that Joady will keep trying to book gigs for him. I hope the money's worth it.

Let's not forget and let's continue to help venues who may not be unaware who they might be platforming as new shows are announced.
