Each year around the holidays CD101(@102.5)FM lets listeners call in and make requests in exchange for a donation. The more money you give, the sooner your song gets played. All the money goes to CD101 for the Kids, which is then given to the Homeless Families Foundation, The Childhood League, Children’s Hospital and other orgs.
In the past, Andy Davis stayed awake for 48 hours during this marathon — hence the name Andyman-a-Thon. This year will be the first time CD101 will undertake the Andyman-a-Thon without the event’s namesake. His tragic passing over the summer is all the more reason to keep this annual tradition alive. So call in starting Friday at 7 pm: 614-221-1025.
There’s a whole lot of items up for grabs in the Ebay auction, too: a surf board autographed by MGMT; autographed Gaslight Anthem and Decemberists posters (which I’d love to have for the Clint Reno art alone), Vampire Weekend and BRMC autographed drumheads, etc. More than 200 items in all.
girlfriend fiance and I celebrated our five year anniversary. Last week we got engaged! Holy crap dudes am I becoming… an adult?
I’ve put together a little mix of MP3s featuring songs from Kiesha’s favorite bands. Enjoy!
MP3: The Book of Love by The Magnetic Fields
MP3: Clementine by The Decemberists
MP3: Where Have All The Rude Boys Gone by Ted Leo
MP3: The Lull of Youngstown by Miranda Sound
From a Myspace.com posting:
With much regret The Decemberists have canceled the remainder of “The Long and Short of It” tour.
One of our band members has been ill for a while but we thought all would be well in time for these tour dates. After a couple shows, though, it has become clear that the illness is much worse than we had initially realized. We need to return home so our friend can mend.
It saddens us to disappoint our fans. We hope everybody understands it is only because of an extreme situation that we had to cancel a tour we’ve all been excited about doing since the idea was originally hatched.
Our deepest apologies but at this time no plans are being made to reschedule the dates. Ticket holders should seek refunds at point of purchase.
