Shuffle Function 24 Hour Marathon on April 26th-27th!

The Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go takes place on April 26th & 27th! One solid day of sleep deprived punch drunk freeform radio!



The Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-GO-GO is coming right up!  Shuffle Function hosts Shyboy Tim and Shelley will go 24 hours without sleep, surviving only on the basic human needs of caffeine, Rock & Roll, and your generosity!  Why would they do this?  BECAUSE KMSU IS WORTH IT!  They'll do whatever it takes to make sure this amazing radio station stays on the air, even if pulling a stunt like this means chopping one year off their lives*!

Every minute of this radio marathon is a blast, but here's a schedule of specific events that we have planned.  Put this stuff on your calendar and plan accordingly!  Better yet, stay up the whole time and listen to everything.  They could use the company.



Thursday, April 26th @ nine p.m. and Friday, April 27th at noon!

The game so nice they play it twice! Tune in for two intense rounds of Shuffle Function Radio Roulette. Tim and Shelley draw numbers to pick the record played, flip a coin to select the side, and roll a ten sided die to determine the song they play. IT'S COMPLETELY RANDOM RADIO, and it's all drawn from a collection of 400+ ancient compilation records!


There's no way to know what the radio gods have in store for you. Sometimes it's one of the greatest hours of radio ever produced, and other times it makes you curse the birth of Marconi. Either way, Radio Roulette is full of surprises, so don't miss it!



Friday, April 27th @ two a.m.

Why two a.m.? Because two a.m. is the perfect time for Jandek, whose songs really inhabit that murky and mysterious hour, taking you to a haunted and personal place. Shuffle Function has been featuring Jandek: Sounds Of Insomnia for a number of years now, and it's always one of their favorite parts of the marathon. They turn off all the lights in the station, leaving only the faint glow of the control board and the strobe of the telephone light when it rings. Tune in, particularly if you aren't already a Jandek initiate. This could be the time that it all finally clicks.



Friday, April 27th from four to six a.m.

Four years ago Shuffle Function set aside an hour for Gary Campbell (aka Maverick Slim) to come in and do an all Sun Ra set, but an hour just wasn't enough time. That's why They've set aside TWO HOURS for Sunrise With Sun Ra! It's a great way to get your bearings before you head into...



Friday, April 27th from six to ten a.m.

They're going to play nothing but vinyl for four hours Friday morning! It wakes everyone up, plus it gives them a chance to dig into some things that might not normally make the playlist. Tim and Shelley have been working to find some real gems, including new Record Store Day finds, to play for you that morning, and hopefully the playlist will convince you that KMSU is a pretty special place on the radio dial.



Friday, April 27th @ 10 a.m

KMSU is thrilled to welcome Bee Balm Fields to deliver a musical kickstart! They have been guests on the Morning Show before, and they always knock it out of the park.  



Friday, April 27th @ 3 a.m.

Sure, you're hip to The Frye, but are you hip to THE ELECTRIC FRYE! You will be soon! Ann and Joe had their long awaited "Judas" moment last September at Rockbend when they invited the 'Hey JC's' from the Jesus Christ Superstar Pageant & Singalong to back them up for an electrified set. Needless to say, faces were melted that day. Even better, Shelley will be playing bass, and by then she will have been awake for TWENTY TWO HOURS! Her brain will probably unconsciously be channeling John Entwistle at this point... or maybe not. In any case, this will be the broadcast debut of The Electric Frye, and you don't want to miss it!  

From here on out its us desperately clawing for the finish line! At this point caffeine is a joke, and the only thing that will help us is your donations! CALL AND PLEDGE! Drop Shuffle Function a line if you have any questions!
