The Air Waves

Leaves change, temps drop, sweaters come out of mothballs, Chiefs lose and Irish Fest joins the KCUR pledge drive: it must be fall.

Yes friends, this Sunday afternoon from 1:00 to 2:00 PM representatives of your fav fest will be on the air during The Thistle and Shamrock show to ask you to support one of our most valued media partners, KCUR FM 89.3, Kansas City's National Public Radio Station. It's a trio of presidents this time-Ed Scanlon, Laren Mahoney and me, all of whom have at one time or the other occupied the shamrock shaped office of the Irish Fest presidency. Really hard to find rugs for that room.

Did you know that NPR only gets a tiny fraction of its funding from the federal government? Upwards of 80% comes from you and me. KCUR helps Irish Fest, so I hope you'll help them. Call in or listen and pledge online at Remember, that's 1:00 to 2:00, this Sunday.

I thank you.
