CASH FOR SPELUNKERS EDITION
We here at Mining the Audio Motherlode know a little something about economic hard times. Why, your very own Miner has gone eight long months without a paycheck ever since getting laid off back in March (smack dab in the middle of WFMU's fundraising marathon).
But did he curl up in a fetal position with one thumb in his mouth and the other jabbing the keyboard for those online unemployment benefits? Hell no! The Miner saw all that new-found free time as an opportunity to spend quality time in the murky deep of MP3Land, excavating free music for the masses. (Talk about turning gators into Gatorade!) And you, dear reader, have been the beneficiary. Over the past 42 weeks, this column has served up a massive free-form mix—over 350 amazing selections in all—of free full-album downloads.
As you take a moment to ponder all the cash Mining the Audio Motherlode has saved you this year, it's crucial that you take some of those beaucoup bucks and make a pledge RIGHT NOW to support WFMU, which finds itself in a major pickle. (For the first time in many years, the station's annual marathon missed reaching its fundraising goal—by over 10%—and that shortfall has left the station in an extremely precarious position.) Until 7:00pm this evening, WFMU is broadcasting an Emergency 24-Hour Marathon to pull in an infusion of desperately need dollars.
