“We interrupt this fundraiser to bring you some programming.”
Seriously, it must feel that way during the perennial begathon, the current one now mercifully over halfway to its conclusion. I can’t blame you if you in fact do touch that dial to escape the hackneyed, feverish, parody-ripe pitches calibrated to gin up the guilt. You ever hear the old Bill Murray routine? Priceless. And to those jonesing for the fundraisers (you’d be surprised) … well … “God bless ya” (but please, I beg of you, seek professional help). Me? I’m reaching for the iPod.
So no patronizing sermons from this geek about the importance of contributing to WBUR. I am simply going to ask you to give, and to give generously. Most especially if you value what we at 90.9 are trying to accomplish in the social media space.
Thank you for your support.
