Steve Kirkland (host)
I'm purposely not talking after every track this evening, hoping that the music will be motivation enough to inspire you to donate. If this approach doesn't work, next week it'll be more babble, less rabble.

6:14 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
This music is scary enough, but much less scary than the silence...

6:17 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Any howling or wailing may simply be me wondering, impatiently, when I'm going to get an email advising of a pledge. Come on, be a devil. Perfect weekend for that, after all...

6:18 PM, October 30th, 2021
Mercy, Mercy!;-) $ sent by snailmail! Don't fret...we luv ya! Happy Halloween!!👹

6:24 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Glad you popped in and piped up hillbilly!! Mercy indeed, Thanks for your support! Cheers

6:25 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Don't wanna hog the Comments, feel free to join in! Any of this Hallowe'enie music moving any of you?

6:27 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Clickbait, clickbait, I need clickbait... what'll it take to get you to click on either the Donate or Donate to This Team buttons?

6:30 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Anyone else listening who's pledged through the mail?

6:32 PM, October 30th, 2021
Tony Pskell
Hi Steve, you've scared me so much that my wallet just jumped out my back pocket... and now something is forcing my hand to sign on the line... be assured, you'll get something very shortly... if I survive.

6:36 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Tony. Nice to hear from you. I'm rooting for you to survive, and not be scared, not be very, very scared... Thanks!

6:39 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Treat please. The trick is getting more of you to make an online pledge. Instantly processed tax receipt and the sincere Thanks of He That Sits Hunched at His Computer waiting for the money to roll in...

6:41 PM, October 30th, 2021
hillbilly good at a costume just to maintain a mood....but, whadda i no...;-) been to sum great parties...used mattress paper shipping "bag" with holes for arms &head was best ever. I am anglo qc so went in a cardboard box as "tete carrier" to francais night school class party & won 2nd prize.... Teachers were killin themselves laughing

6:45 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Paldies, mother of my children! Long may you continue to support the half that admittedly is not better, who remains appreciative of your ongoing support!

6:46 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
We're at $150 in online pledges so far for the hour. Need to ramp that up, peeps. Climatically miserable night out there, gotta believe there's plenty of you hunkered down indoors tuned to The Mighty... unless there's some technological glitch, I've received NO emails advising an online pledge has been made. Almost the end of the first hour.

6:49 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
that's an awesone anecdote hillbilly... if I thought it'd make a difference, I'd have dressed up for this... but the invisibility aspect of doing radio kind of dampens my enthusiasm... speaking of invisible, appears most of my regular listeners are ghosting me so to speak... if that's not the case, spill it

6:55 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Thank-you Julia White, great to hear from you and happy you're still along for the ride, and pledging your financial support! Sincerely appreciated!

7:00 PM, October 30th, 2021
Mr. A
I am on my break at work. This episode will be my on demand listen later tonight, I plan on donating this week. Happy Halloween Steve!

7:01 PM, October 30th, 2021
bankrupt city here for ClickBait ideas....different now almost completely...

7:02 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Mr. A, enjoy your break. And enjoy listening On Demand later tonight. Have a great Hallowe'en yourself. Looking forward to receiving your donation!

7:04 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Heads-up, there's a monster coming... would be great if that was matched by a monster pledge... Click on Donate or Donate to This Team and make that online pledge now...

7:06 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
It says here (well, nothing you can see), "When donations are made the program host/team will get an email notification about it. " I'm not getting any emails... rest assured I will acknowledge your donation as soon as I am made aware... Cheers

7:10 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
To the best of my knowledge, we're at $225 in online pledges for the first hour... need to at least double that between now and show's close. Step up and make your contribution.

7:16 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Roky Erickson said, "If you have ghosts, then you have everything"... well, plenty of ghosts on tonight's show, but we're short of pledgers... still time to testify!

7:21 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Listening to the depths to which some of us must stoop? No, not the music, the FD station IDs... let's see if we can't raise the quality bar with some more donations.

7:23 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
We've reached quintuple digits, overall. Second day of FD 2021 and we're over $10K! That's great, but we need the momentum to continue continuously and consistently... beseeching you to answer the call, and make that online pledge.

7:26 PM, October 30th, 2021
Heavy Ben
Hey Steve, good track that Tones on Tail

7:29 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Ben, yeah I love pretty much everything from the Bauhaus school

7:32 PM, October 30th, 2021
Heavy Ben
Indeed, one of the finer schools of design and architecture

7:33 PM, October 30th, 2021
Geez, the comments! You're gonna wear out the internet's supply of letters!

7:39 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
20 minutes to go, falling short of what we need to receive in financial support over the course of a two-hour radio program. Make our pledge now. Look for the red "Donate" button on the playlist, and click it, you devil.

7:41 PM, October 30th, 2021
Mr. A
Mr. B!

7:42 PM, October 30th, 2021
Hey ho! Late listening, will have to do the first hour and a half on demand. Everybody (reasonably) happy?

7:45 PM, October 30th, 2021
(I'm planning on contributing, it's a yearly thing. My problem is I'm only one person, and there are at least five shows I listen to weekly. Which one to choose?) (complaints, complaints)

7:47 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Benoit, what a pleasant surprise. Nice to hear that you listen to five of my shows weekly... gotta love that On Demand. Heh-heh.

7:48 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Those of you who like to divide your yearly contributions to CKCU's Funding Drive among several shows can still do that, you will just have to make the pledges individually to each program. Please take the time to do that rather than just choosing a single show. It's important that every announcer whose program is appreciated by someone, knows that that someone likes them.

7:51 PM, October 30th, 2021
Did I type 'five'? I meant 'fifty'. And yes you are, surprisingly, the exact centre of the Canadian radio broadcasting world. Go figure.

7:52 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Eight minutes to go, let's get a few more pledges before Heavy Friends (and more Hallowe'en radio fun) comes your way...

7:55 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
B, I have absolutely no delusions/illusions of Canadian radio broadcasting grandeur, I am happy to be as off-centre as I can be, knowing that's what CKCU listeners expect and respect.

7:58 PM, October 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Thank-you Julia, Inta, Tony and Wally, for your donations tonight. Thanks to anyone who has pledged without my knowing, or will over the ensuing week... Cheers

8:00 PM, October 30th, 2021
(It was a joke, of course. Ciao for now!)
