The Hockey Show - Episode 213

Whoa, check out that banner! The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is on the air tonight with a special guest and a special show as we hunker down for UMFM's Pledge-O-Rama fundraising drive! We'll get to the show info in a minute, but Pledge-O-Rama is always a big deal for the station and for our show. All of the funds raised goes back into doing cool things like acquiring the mobile units being used for Bisons Sports broadcasts and at festivals across this great province. This year, all of the monies raised is going to a new transmitter so that UMFM remains loud, clear, and stronger than ever in our community and across the globe via the online options. All we ask is that if you like our show, please pledge whatever you can. It doesn't have to be a dump truck full of money or anything - although that would be awesome - but every nickel, loonie, quarter, and dime really goes a long way!

Tonight, we are proud, humbled, privileged, and humbled to welcome a woman I've known for a long time and someone I am proud to call my friend in Rhonda Galloway! Rhonda is an amazing photographer who has done some incredible artwork that has been nominated for awards! While her body of work stands on its own, she's also married to NHL linesman Ryan Galloway who will be in Winnipeg working the Heritage Classic this weekend! We'll talk to Rhonda about her life, her photography, her business, being nominated for a photography award, and much more! Rhonda and Ryan have also made a special bond with the Delaloye family after Ryan and Rhonda met the family, and we'll bring you some special news about Alyx Delaloye on tonight's show! It's going to be a great Pledge-O-Rama show, so tune in!

If you don't follow me on Facebook or Twitter or anywhere else in the social media world, that's ok. However, you've missed the announcements on what's happening surrounding Pledge-O-Rama and our show. Pledges to the station will get you some cool UMFM gear. What kind of gear, you ask? Well...
... there are two different t-shirts this year, our annual Transmissions compilation CD, a canteen, a mug, some embroidered patches, and some ear plugs for those loud concerts, crying kids, or any other noise you want to block out. There are various pledge levels where you can acquire these incentives, so I recommend you check all the incentive levels to get what you want!

On top of that, The Hockey Show is running a week-long pledge prize draw! For every $25 incremental pledge you make to The Hockey Show, you will receive one entry into our prize draw. These prizes are added to the incentives above, so this is a pretty solid add-on if you're already pledging at an incentive level! So what do we have to offer up, you ask?
  • Hosting the show on December 8 where you run The Hockey Show and talk hockey!
  • Artwork from Rhonda Galloway (and it's pretty incredible)!
  • A Fast Air/St. Paul Tourism gift pack!
  • A signed copy of the Hockey Karma graphic novel from Howard Shapiro which will be released in bookstores on November 1!
  • UofM Bisons t-shirts and mugs!
  • Anything else in The Hockey Show shwag bag! There's an assortment of t-shirts, books, signed pucks, and more, so we're literally giving it all away!
Remember, this isn't just during the hour we're on the air tonight. You can pledge anytime this week to The Hockey Show and be entered into the draw! I realize that it's pay day for some people tomorrow and it would be easier to pledge then for one of the awesome prizes above, so don't feel like you're left out. Pledge whenever you can for whatever amount you can afford because we appreciate your support! And if you live out of town, use the online pledge form to help us out. You may not live in Winnipeg, but you're part of the UMFM community and The Hockey Show appreciates your support and listenership!
