Today in the WFMU parking lot Station Manager Ken is planning to soar into the freeform stratosphere while strapped to his favorite lawn chair. (In case you were wondering, this is how the greatest listener supported radio station in the world raises money.) A consortium of scientists and intelligent chimps have determined that it will take 180 balloons to get Ken airborne. For every thousand bucks pledged we'll attach one helium balloon to Ken's chair. Cabbage pledged towards FMU naturally goes towards powering your favorite Number One Ichiban Rock 'n' Soul blogstream as well, so let's get with it and 1) get Ken airborne, 2) keep FMU and this blogstream up and running and 3) get stuff in the mail! Pledge here, check out the wild swag here and, oh yeah--today is also 85 years since Sammy Davis, Jr. popped onto the scene!
What could posibly go wrong??
