WE DID IT! (and special offer)

On yesterday’s Mascot Wedding show we raised over $500, pushing our two-show total to over $700. You did it! For a rookie show with a 30-minute time slot this is unprecendented. Thanks so much to everyone who pledged. There were some people that were pledging during the closing minutes of our show who we didn’t get to thank on the air but we shall do that next week as well as the drawing for the bill and erik prize pack.

Thanks so much to everyone who pledged. David and I are so proud of each and everyone of you. KOOP thanks you, we thank you, and we hope you like the premiums (which we’ll be mailing out sometime in May).

If there are any Mascot Wedding fans out there who didn’t get a chance to pledge during our show; because I love KOOP so much, if you make a pledge of at least $25 between now and the end of pledge drive, send me an email with your time and date of pledge and I’ll hook you up with our comedy CD. mac(at)billanderik(dot)com

I know, I know. I said I wasn’t going to do that, but people have been asking me about it, and I can’t turn away possible support for KOOP. It will just be for the CD btw, the shirt and prize pack offers will remain exclusive to those who pledged during the show.

MPT + MW vs. ET = LOL-pocalypse

For the next three weekends, Mascot Wedding’s Mac Blake and David Jara will join with Master Pancake Theater (John Erler and Joe Parsons) for their movie-mocking run of E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial at the downtown Alamo Rtitz theater here in Austin, TX.

Mascot Wedding has teamed with Master Pancake before during their runs of Roadhouse and Conan the Barbarian and now with E.T. will perform a comedy track over a movie that’s actually good. If you’re worried that this improvement in quality will lessen the comedic punches, just remember that E.T. is still a movie about a boy and his magical space-penis that’s actually a Jesus figure who likes to get lit on Coors. Sound the feasting horn!

Membership Drive and Exclusive CD

Hey folks. 91.7 KOOP FM is currently in the midst of the spring membership drive, our on-air fundraising campaign. Without the support we get from our listeners during these drives, KOOP would not be able to stay on the air. So without your donations, we would not have a show. Due to the attack on KOOP earlier in the year, this might be our most important drive ever.

To try and sweeten the deal and encourage donations, David and I have cooked up a special donation premium for people who pledge during our show. In addition to the donation premiums that KOOP is already offering, everyone who pledges at least $25 dollars during our show will get a CD featuring exclusive material from myself and David; including a phone call we did on our pilot show and comedy bits recorded just for this premium.
