++Hot Property at Coldtowne Theater
Hot Property is sketch-prov. That means we sort of write it out but not really and we sort of make it up as we go but not really. Before you judge us as just a lazy sketch comedy group, we need to catch our breath first. And maybe lay down. Hot Property is Mac and David from MW plus Nick and Lance of Midnight Society. Your Terrific Neighbors are your sketch comedy headliners.
Mar 10, 10PM @ Coldtowne Theater

++Hashtag Austin Comedy (Mac does some stand-up)
A monthly stand-up showcase hosted by David McQuary, who is one of the best kids ever. Come see a bunch of funny people and also Mac.
Mar 25, 9:30PM @ The New Movement Theater

++Stag Comedy Videos!
This isn’t really a live event, but the sketch comedy arm of Mascot Wedding, Stag Comedy, is going to start uploading a new video every Wednesday. Starting today! Head to stagcomedy.com to check’em out.

KOOP Membership Drive Hits the Mascot Wedding Show

It's Winning Time!
Hey everyone! KOOP Radio’s Fall Membership Drive is upon us once again. I say this without exaggeration — this is one of our favorite times of year at the Mascot Wedding Show. “Oh, why, because you get to bilk us out of money?” Come on, don’t be snide. I’m trying to create a genuine moment here.

It’s our favorite time of year because it gives us a chance to thank YOU on air for supporting our show and supporting KOOP. We’ve been doing this radio show for three years now, and we couldn’t have made it without the institution that is KOOP, and the support of listeners like you.

We’ll be on the air asking for pledges for the next three weeks, so please call in and help support KOOP. We’ll have on-air guests, special surprises, AND all pledges over 25 dollars will receive our WINNING TIME FUN PAK, a collection of goodies that we’re putting together as our way of saying thanks. So, please tune in to 91.7 FM or online at www.koop.org. Or just call in — 472-5667 or nationwide at 1-888-917-5667. Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Membership Drive Wrap-up and Crush Report

Last week, the (Best of Austin) Mascot Wedding show wrapped up its Fall KOOP Membership Drive run with nothing less than its best membership show ever, all thanks to you, the listners! Oh-em-eff-gee you guys crushed it. YOU CRUSHED IT! It was our single best show ever in terms of the amount raised for our beloved community radio station, and the best full pledge run (all three shows) for our show so far. If you want a sign that the show is growing, it’s right there in your support. Thanks so much to the following pledgers: Randy, John G., (Anonymous), Misty, Nelda, and Robert. Special thanks to Charles C. for pledging for a second time. Jeepers! Everyone who didn’t pledge, look at these names and be humbled. They are your radio champions.

Thanks also to last week’s special guest, Dylan McKenzie from Writing on the Air. The fun packs will be mailed out in the next four weeks.

Last KOOP Membership Drive show for Mascot Wedding Today!

Last Saturday was show number two for Mascot Wedding during KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive and our listeners continued to come through, especially Dana for pledging her support for a second week in a row. We’d also like to thank heroes Fancy and Steve for standing tall and pledging their support for KOOP. Those heroes either called (512) 472-5667 [toll free 1-888-917-5667] or pledged online at koop.org. Thanks also to our special guest Jay Robillard, legendary host of The Lounge Show.

We’re going to try and keep that momentum going on today’s show featuring special guest Jay Robillard. Remember, every pledge of at least $25 gets you the Mascot Wedding premium, You Wanna Get Crushed? Fun Pack, which includes an exclusive CD + sticker.

Last week’s playlist:
Opener: “Commin’ Home” by Cheeseburger, off the Commin’ Home single
“Soft Shock (Acoustic)” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, off the album It’s Blitz!

MWS KOOP Membership Drive Update

Last week was our first show of KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive and our listeners kicked the ass fantastic. We’d like to thank Dana T, Amanda D, Dan K, Charles C, and William B for standing tall and pledging their support for KOOP. Those heroes either called (512) 472-5667 [toll free 1-888-917-5667] or pledged online at koop.org. Thanks also to our special guest Mr. Harris, co-host of the Graveside Service on KOOP.

We’re going to try and keep that momentum going on today’s show featuring special guest Jay Robillard. Remember, every pledge of at least $25 gets you the Mascot Wedding premium, You Wanna Get Crushed? Fun Pack, which includes an exclusive CD + sticker.

Last week’s playlist:
Opener: “The Boys are Leaving Town” by Japandroids, off the album Post-Nothing
“Codes” by Jason Lowenstein, off the album At Sixes and Sevens

the Mascot Wedding show: 10/18/08 + Pledge Drive Wrap-up

This was our final show of the KOOP Fall 2K8 Membership Drive. Thanks to everyone who pledged during our three-week run. You guys are the true heroes of KOOP. The rest of you are most likley scum. What’s that? You pledged during the Spring Membership Drive? Okay, you’re still a hero.

I hope everyone enjoys the show-exclusive premiums. They’re going to be mailed out separately by us in November. So if you get a package of KOOP swag in the mail and don’t see your copy of Erler and Sons vol 2, no worries, it’s coming.

Since these shows aren’t really “for the ages”, I’ll most likely take down the podcast episodes in a week. So listen to them while you have the chance… if you want to listen to them that is. They’re pretty much just yelling. Plus you can hear the annoyed choreographer trying to keep David and Mac on track.

And finally congrats to Patrick G. who won our mini-raffle and will be getting all of the mix CD’s we make for the show. Thanks again to everyone!
