You Scratch Behind Our Ears, And We’ll Scratch Behind Yours

Looky here – Do you like CJSR? Do you like the 68Comeback Special? Do you like art? Do you like Raymond Biesinger? Do you like cats?

I’m asking for a darn good reason, and I hope I know what your answer is. CJSR-FM is currently rocking our way through our 2014 FunDrive – goal, $130K – and coming up on Thursday, October 2, 2014, from 3 to 5 pm, the 68Comeback Special will host our second of two fundrive shows.

There’s about 20 bazillion reasons to support CJSR, and Tom and I will be offering up as many as we can to convince you that supporting CJSR is something you personally want to do. Some of those reasons will be high falutin’, some will be decidedly middlebrow, some will be downright realistic and practical, like our foreign policy. And some will have to do with exciting draws for fantastic prizes.

For example, our friend and perennial supporter, Raymond Biesinger, has offered up THIS as an incentive to donate, his latest and greatest print, first entitled Feline Anatomy, first run of the edition, framed no less. We will be drawing for it just before five o’clock, from the names of all those who pledged to CJSR via 68Comeback on last week and this week’s show. You could be the one. Tune in this Thursday, and spend some time practicing getting your wallet out before then.

 

It’s Time To Pay The 68Comeback Toll

On the November 21, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we observed the formation of a new feature by barely observing it at all, celebrated the universe-wide premiere of a new Wintercount song by paying no mind to its true universe-wide premiere, and discussed all that needed discussing. If you tuned in, then you know.

In The Back Of My Mind I Was Afraid It Might Be True

On the October 31, 2013, first ever post-Lou edition of the 68Comeback Special, we’re told we were especially funny, and even though we were shooting for spooky, sometimes you just gotta take what you can get. Y’know?

CJSR FunDrive 2013: Adventures In Giveaways

So here’s the deal: on last Thursday’s edition of the 68Comeback Special, our first of CJSR FunDrive 2013, we raised $1700, a formidable sum without a doubt, and we thank all who donated. High fives all around.

But that stuff’s all in the past, and we’ve got the shiny future of THIS Thursday’s 68Comeback to look forward to.  History has shown that we are not afraid to pull out the giveaway draws in week 2, and so it’s important to consider what, exactly, that means. Saint Raymond has once again smiled upon us and delivered a box of his B+W books. They are tidy, reasonable testaments to how completely awesome he is. We gave some away last week AND WE WILL PROBABLY DO IT AGAIN.

Also, it appears that we have come into temporary possession of these Nirvana anniversary editions: the Nevermind 20th Anniversary box set (4 CDs, 1 DVD, oy!), and the In Utero 20th Anniversary double CD set. You say, “WHAT?REALLY?” and we say it’s true, we’re going to have a draw for the two of them together in the same package at the very end of the show, from the names of everyone who pledges on the 68Comeback Special in 2013.

And also again, do you know about Queen of Wundi? It is a generous gift from Wunderbar, wherein an upcoming evening’s proceedings at Wunderbar will be dedicated to the winner of ANOTHER draw at the end of the show. Queen of Wundi features: Your name in lights or at least on the gig sheet, 2 free admissions, a refreshment allowance, an option on photographs taken of you wearing a crown, and at least one of the bands on the bill will play a song that has been named for you.

Purely ceremonial.  Freakin’ exclusive. Queen of Wundi. And you could be the first one ever.

And all you have to do to enter is something you’ve probably been meaning to do anyway – give your pals at 68Comeback Special a pat on the back during CJSR-FM’s FunDrive 2013. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is. Your first step is tuning in tomorrow, Thursday October 3, between 3 and 5pm.

Bring Him 68Comeback Or Alive, Lawd Lawd, Bring Him 68Comeback Or Alive

As the last ‘regular’ show before fundraising broke out, it was clear from the get-go that the September 19, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special had something to prove. By the end of it, Tom had taken a stand against the notion that any given quality – intelligence, honesty, emotionalism – is improved with addition of ‘childlike’ as a modifier, everyone was thinking they’d like to see O Brother Where Art Thou again sometime soon,  and what? Don Ho? Geeeez.
