Raising $ for the radio station
I’ll be dragging my butt out of bed way too early Monday morning to work the 6-9 a.m. pledge shift, if you’re interested in hearing my dulcet tones on the radio. (Are tones the only things that can be dulcet? Nothing else ever gets else described that way.) I’ll also be on the air from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday.

A lot of Shedheads don’t live in the Charlotte area, I know … but I will say that WFAE is good listening no matter where you are. We’ve got a lot of your NPR/public radio favorites and a strong local news team. We’re a listener-supported station, in the same way this is a reader-supported newsletter. We count on folks like you to keep us going.
Here’s some music for making it through my pledge pitch. When I sent out my Friday newsletter, I didn’t know Gary Wright had died earlier in the week. “Dream Weaver” was the song most people remember, I think, but “Love Is Alive” is the real banger—it still sounds as good as it did in the ‘70s. I think it’s the tension between the layers of synths and his raw, bluesy voice.
