Come one, come all, to the "Shannyn Moore Show Fundraiser"!

Let's take a moment away from dealing with the Palin family train wreck to help the lovely Shannyn Moore raise some money to keep her remarkably informative and always entertaining program on the air.

Event: Shannyn Moore Show Fundraiser "A grassroots way to raise money for a grassroots progressive show."
What: Fundraiser
Start Time: Friday, February 26 at 5:30pm
End Time: Friday, February 26 at 7:00pm
Where: Cafe Del Mundo at 341 E. Benson

I will be there, along with our host Shannyn Moore, AKMuckraker, and a number of our other amazing Alaskan bloggers.

So come on over and say hi. Don't worry we don't bite.

Okay well sometimes.

Update: Okay I just got off the phone with Shanny.

This fundraiser is for her radio show. And essentially what she is trying to do is to kick of an ad campaign and to raise funds to buy a piece of equipment that will allow her to do live broadcasts on location.

In order to talk KUDO into putting a local progressive on the air Shannyn had to pay for her time slot herself and then find advertisers.

This show is the ONLY truly progressive radio show in town and we need to support it to keep it on the air. Once this one builds a solid audience we may finally see more progressive shows make it to the airwaves and wouldn't it be nice our radios were not so clogged with conservative talking points all day every say?

Update 2: For thsoe of you who want to donate but cannot attend, please go to Shannyn's site "Just a Girl from Homer" and look up on the right hand side for her DONATE button.

    Sarah called and wants to know if you would like her to speak for a mere $75,000, but you have to pay per diem if she stays in her new 2 story house?

    Has Shannyn asked SarahPac, Alaska Fund Trust or Sarah for a donation? Why not? Does not hurt to ask?

    I'd like to attend, but would like more information about where my contribution would go. Would it go to KUDO to help support her radio show? Or would it go to KYES to help subsidize the airing of her Saturday TV show? Or would it go to Bernie's Bungalow Lounge for "studio" fees? Or does it go to Shannyn to help pay her a salary of sorts so she can afford to keep doing what she's doing? I enjoy both of Shannyn's shows, but really need to know more before I am comfortable contributing. Thanks for any additional information you can provide.

    Can you please provide more detail?
    I thought radio shows made money through advertising? Is this for Ms. Moore's salary for for KUDO?

    Thank you.

    What, nobody wants to advertise on the show ?

    This isn't a good sign, lol

    Gryph, I just finished listening to Hannity/Palin squawking about todays HC Summit. So much blatant bull shit I almost threw my computer out the window.

    I swear to you right here and now. In front of all your loyal readers...I will pledge my next paycheck, the entire Shannyn's show.


    You put the final nail in this lying bitch's coffin by Monday afternoon.
    Yeah, kind of a bribe...but more of a plea.
    Do it Gryph. Do it!

  8. I get it ? whats not to understand?
    Shannyn needs to raise money for an ad campaign.
    That could raise money as to buy a piece of equipment that will enable her to go out in the field and report live news. I maybe overworked and overfed and one sheet to the wind. I had no problem reading that.
    What i could not read was the date on this event. You give 24 hours notice! And nothing on Shannyns site! I will watch for things in the morning.

  9. Hi Gryphen - I am thousands of miles away and unable to attend.
    Therefore, I am sending a donation to YOU through your "Support Gryphen's Search for Truth" link.
    Please keep half and give half to the Shannyn Moore fundraiser.
    THANK YOU for all of your efforts and your tireless contribution to get you-know-who OFF the political stage.

    Thanks for the update; I'll see you all tomorrow evening at Cafe Del Mundo!

  11. I hope there are some pictures of the event so the 'virtual listeners' can connect, as it were.

    For those of us not in Anchorage and unable to attend, how/where can we contribute?

    Thanks Gryphen for putting this up and helping to support Shannyn and her work!

    Thanks for the update; I'll see you all Friday evening at Cafe Del Mundo!

  14. Not being there in Alaska, can we just donate to your 'Support' PayPal feature, to have you deliver to Shannnyn?

    Have a good one --

    I have enjoyed listening / watching Shannyn and her many guests..on your and other Alaskan Blogs.

    I sincerely wish her the best of luck in this fund raiser. I will revisit your Blog later today to see if and how I can help out.

    Sincerely Yours,
    A Friendly Canadian

    I will contribute, even though I can only listen through the podcasts usually. I wish KUDO used a "mobile friendly" live streaming platform! As it is, I can only listen live if I happen to be sitting at my computer at work at the right time of day. :-(

    Gryph, is there a way for out of towners to donate? I listen to the show online, but won't be able to travel 4000 miles for this event :)

    That's so cool. I only wish I had some cash to spare to help Shannyn.
    Be sure to let us know how it goes!

    HolySwiss you have a great idea. Let's all get together and make a donation to Shannyn Manure for her show.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
