pro bono.






Hey dudes, NOW WHERE operates pro bono and free of charge
every week on Radio 1190. The station runs a pledge drive marathon twice a year to make up for the remarkable lack of commercials found in our programming (read: none) and asks listeners for support. To make this more enjoyable for everybody, NOW WHERE curated a premium, so now when you pledge any amount over $20, you may add on this year's special cd compilation entitled "Deep-Fried Head Funk" which contains 20 killer psych/funk gems handpicked by yours truly. Smooth.
Call 303/735/ROCK (7625) during the daylight hours before October 21st and tell 'em you'd like a copy of said CD, and I'll personally mail you a copy. I'm even drawing up some art for it, so it's gonna be worth a ton of money someday.
