Happy Friday the 13th

A happy Friday the 13th to everyone!

Look at the above image with 3-D glasses if you have them.

I hope you are finding some way of having fun with the day, either by pulling pranks or sitting down and enjoying some quality filmmaking.

If any of you are wondering why this date has such a notorious reputation, check this out.

In honor of the weekend, the release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and the Halloween season, Sunday's edition of Maverick at the Movies will include music from slasher films and an interview with Peter Bracke, author of Crystal Lake Memories: the Complete History of Friday the 13th.

KMSU Pledge Drive

89.7 KMSU FM is currently having their fall pledge drive. There are prizes and gifts for various levels of pledge contributions, including t-shirts, CDs, and a limited number of Day Sponsorships in which you can program the music playing on The Maverick.

The amount of money contributed does not matter nearly as much as the fact that you have contributed. While it would be easy if one listener was able to cut the station a $15,000 check, it would be far more impressive if 15,000 community members contributed $1, because that would demonstrate how important KMSU is to the southern Minnesota community.

And the station is that important. KMSU FM is a platform for new and local musical artists, it gives voice to minority communities, provides local news, and presents alternative political and artistic viewpoints. These things are simply not found on commercial radio. We need your help to make this continue.

You can contribute to the station by calling 507-389-5678 or check out the station's website for online contributions.
