I used to write! Thanks for your donation! RT @funkomatic: @CRZ @kfaiFMradio OH JEEZ THAT IS 4 FULL PARAGRAPHS

(Jokes on you I already donated earlier tonight!)

It's Member Drive time at KFAI! I wrote a little bit about @kfaiFMradio and me in the hopes I'll convince you to donate (but you can read it for free): https://CRZ.net/126462

Part of being a music nerd is just being a nerd. As I usually do around member drive time, I went to our logging service Spinitron and pulled my "lifetime" numbers at KFAI to see where I'm at. If I compiled everything correctly and this spreadsheet don't lie, I have logged 2056 spins across on air and streaming shows going back to my first fill-in gig on "Pop Shop" back in August 2018. Now, 876 of those are from the web only show Dollar Bin, but that's still way more on air spins that I ever THOUGHT I'd do...and since I started on Saturdays in July I've already logged 394 spins - and of those, 209 were tagged "New" and 139 were tagged "Request." That's amazing! Over half new and over a third request. Here's the thing. If it's at all possible, I'd like those percentages to be even higher!

I don't think there's another station on the dial in our market that would allow so much new music and give over so much time to let the audience suggest what gets played instead of some overly-focused focus group and/or the board of I Heart Radio in cooperation with the heads of Universal/Sony/Warner - and I'm sure you would chime in and say well, that's probably why terrestrial radio isn't doing so well overall, and I'd pretty much agree with you. And I can't lie - when you seed it correctly, the Spotify algorithm is dynamite, but that can take a while and where you end up is a place where very rarely are you pushed out of what the algorithm sees as your comfort zone to get you to experience a bigger, better variety of new and interesting music - and there's so much out there.

Tomorrow I have a very special Member Drive edition of "Weekend on Demand," programmed almost entirely by listeners, many of whom were good enough to play DJ themselves and record a drop for me to play along with their requests. There's 2020 music, of course - there are some classics - there's probably the oldest thing I've played yet - and a few other surprises. But most of all this show (and this particular episode of it) is something I'm so proud to share with YOU! I hope it's something you would not only be interested in listening to but ALSO maybe come back to every Saturday at 5 after that. If Saturdays aren't good for you, we will have it archived for 14.

If you've read this far, you probably know that the underlying point of this post is that once again I am asking you for financial support of Fresh Air Radio so that opportunities like the one I've received, and so many before me, remain stable and viable for more new (and way fresher than me) voices in the years to come. If you have the means, please consider heading over to our website to make a donation - or you can do it right here on The Facebook, but there are mugs and totes over on dot org. And if you currently do not have the means, that's okay too - you can always still listen to us, and I hope you do. AND tell a friend about KFAI. And tell them to tell one of their friends too.

@funkomatic @DollarBinShow Sadly, my mailbox was empty when I checked it Saturday :(
20.9 16:34 
And then I forgot to repeat it over the air! (But SPOILER: I did mention it at the end of what will be Tuesday's Dollar Bin) RT @cruisectrlkfai: I told @crz while on a few hundred mg of gas station CBD that I'd bring back Cruise Control this Friday at 2pm over on the Irregular Audio stream and I will stick by that. I've loaded about 36 hrs of smooth into their system, so we should be good to sail.

WEEKLY PLUG: Forget that I'm on at 5, turn to KFAI (90•3/kfai•org) RIGHT NOW so you can catch the rest of Lynval's INCREDIBLE "tribute to Toots" special - I know today sucks and 2020 sucks but music can make you feel better and Toots & the Maytals are definitely lifting ME up right now - and then you can come back down with me at 5 ;-) but I'm starting off with Janelle Monáe so mmmmmmmaybe?

Just looking over the @KFAIweekend playlist for the week - somehow I'm gonna cram 30 tracks into a two hour show (maybe) - "8 minute remix CRZ" may wonder what kind of presenter I've turned into but 12 shows in, I really like how we've been going... and it continues at 1700 CDT!
18.9 12:27 
Ah, flattery will get you everywhere....or at least spun another time on @kfaiFMradio about 30 hours from now @KFAIweekend (with the requisite hat tips to @cruisectrlkfai and @DJ_SLT) RT @caminodisco: god-tier radio programming move from @CRZ

RT @aadesigncreate: if you are feeling anger, hurt and/or frustration about minnesota public radio’s actions (or lack thereof) in the past week, and if you are planning to withdraw your monetary contributions, consider supporting community-led radio such as KFAI or KRSM instead.

Wow, what a fun time guest hosting True Brit! Radio - my third time and definitely my best, thanks in no small part to what I consider a successful AND epic-length "Stump Ron" segment (all I forgot to do was entrap him on air by asking if he'd finally accept my Facebook Friend request) along with a fun bunch in the Discord from whom I managed to coax an instant request and one VERY enthusiastic caller who called three times - twice to request I play "I'm Going Shopping" a second time :) If YOU missed any of it, or would like to relive it any time over the next 14 days, the archived version is right.......THERE! I'm back at KFAI and back on the air in...whoa, now just 14 hours!

RADIO @CRZ: Tonight from midnight (CDT) I'm guest hosting True Brit! on KFAI - I'm thinking roughly one hour of 2020s Britpop (after stumping Ron!) followed by one hour of 1980s remixed Britpop.

Then, I'm back again Saturday at 1700 for
@KFAIweekend on Demand!
4.9 09:35 
BONUS RADIO CRZ! Tonight at midnight I'm guest hosting True Brit! Radio, where - yes - I will attempt to Stump Ron. I'll also share some of my favourite 1980s remixes along with some of the newer UK finds I've recently been playing on KFAI Weekend on Demand, which I'll be BACK at KFAI for 15 hours after I'm done!

Hey hi! Guess what? I played TWENTY-FIVE REQUESTS (!!!!!) on Saturday, including at least one from everybody I tagged. I'm glad for the musical tastes represented here - yes, ALL of them - but if for whatever reason you aren't hearing what YOU wanted....well, I'm hoping you're ready with YOUR request for THIS Saturday!

I may have to ask @d_henney if he has a copy I can borrow, but I'll work on it! RT @macruckus: @kfaiFMradio @KFAIweekend @CRZ Can you play Waterlogged by GrayBeat? That would be awesome.
27.8 15:10 
RT @kfaiFMradio: NOW is a good time to consider your demand for @KFAIweekend! Request here and @CRZ will (probably) play it Saturday during Weekend on Demand from 5 to 7PM! Wanna hear something no other station will play? Perhaps something from a far off land? We love that stuff - try us!
