Pledge Drive Update

Irish Aires & KPFT are about to complete their spring fundraiser. While I can’t say I am disappointed in that fact, I am certainly not disappointed by the response we have had so far. We surpassed our goals in the first two weeks of this effort and we hope to do so on this Saturday night. If you haven’t pledge yet, consider giving us a call (or returning the below form) with a contribution. While there are increases in the options for receiving info from the media, the sources of media information are contracting. Public media (radio & TV) like KPFT & PBS deserve your support. All of our cultures might not reflect yours, but KPFT & Irish Aires do their best to provide music & information for the Irish/Celtic communities. Give us a little support!

As we have said before, we don’t need people to give a lot; we need A LOT OF PEOPLE to give. Your individual support at any level will help the station stay on the air and Irish Aires to continue into its 28th Year. You can contribute to Irish Aires by calling 713-526-5738 during our show on May 31 between 6:00-7:00PM OR you can complete the below form and return to me via email ( Basic membership costs are $25 for students & people on a fixed or lower income; regular membership goes for $35 per year. If you can give more, we have been the beneficiaries of some Irish/Celtic music CDs that we would like to give you in return for a $60 contribution (even if you can only afford to pay it out at $5 per month). See details of available CDs below. But it is more important for you to contribute, no matter what the amount. Wide-spread, small contributions give our station support from the community of people who appreciate our programming and internet information. We have some thank you gifts for contributions. If you can contribute at the $60 level you will get one of the following CDs. If you can contribute at the $90 level, you will get two of the following.

DVD - $75.00 for ONE; $125 for TWO The High Kings in Dublin (Finbar Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey & Darren Holden) Danny & Patrick O’Flaherty - A Night in Gaelic (two VHS tapes are available for $60,00 each) Evening with Danny O’Flaherty at Univ of St Thomas ************************* CD - $60 for ONE; $90 for TWO; $120 for THREE; $150 for FOUR The High Kings (Finbar Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey & Darren Holden) Battlefield Band – Various CD’s Celtic Folk Live on Bourbon Street Rainbow Flight Celtic Folk – Volume I Celtic Folk – Volume II Danny O’Flaherty: The Monster Picnic (Children’s Irish Music) From The Heart Patrick O’Flaherty – Andrea’s Brown Eyes Poor Clares Change of Habit Resurrect Lover Songs for Midwinter (Christmas) Blaggards Standards Shite & Onions (various Celtic Rockers) What the Shite The Elders Racing the Tide Jiggernaut Evolution In Search of More Constant Billy Let Me In ************************* CD - $45 Danny O’Flaherty Farwell to John John (4 Cuts on CD) ---- At whatever level you can support us, please do.
