"I'm Like the Weird Uncle...," by Rev Dave

Why you should pledge to KAXE. This is the question I was asked to answer, or at least write about. So here we go.

Pledging to KAXE is like joining the family. I'm like the weird uncle that only comes out for special occasions. Maggie would be like the motherly type who could still love an axe-murderer if they didn't swear on-air. Dan would be the fatherly type who was surprised people could be so dumb and still live. John would be the stylish, slightly jockish older brother ...

Wait, this isn't what I wanted to talk about.

KAXE is about good music,great music, can't say enough about all the different music, I could try but this would just get long and confusing, just know that there's a lot of great music you may not hear elsewhere. But KAXE is more, it's good books with Real Good Words, showing off your smarts Saturday night with Green Cheese, getting together with friends new and old for a discussion Between You and Me. Minnesota music takes Centerstage, new music is Current, and the Morning Show makes you smarter.

But KAXE is also about the people, Not just the people that work there, but all the members too. KAXE people are special. KAXE people help you find a lost pet, find new things, find new friends. KAXE people have the best recipes, know the best places to eat, and can answer most gardening questions (or tell you to call and ask Bonnie). KAXE people can recommend a good book, a good movie, or a good hiking spot. KAXE people love life and want to be a part of it.

Maybe that's it ... KAXE people love life and want to be a part of it. When they find something they love, they make it a part of their life .... and when they found something so wonderful as KAXE (too gushy?) they not only made it a part of their life, but they pledged to the station and made themselves part of it .... and kept the family growing.

But how the hell would I know. For me KAXE is psycho therapy, a creative outlet, and something that probably keeps me out of jail. Just pledge so we don't have to go door to door ... and be more, uh .. pursuasive.
