RE: No panties please!!!! So what's going on with the station right now?

BT: Wow, well, we are raising funds to keep going another year. It's the 2010 Marathon. Two weeks, ending March 14. completely nonprofit here. No underwriting, money tied to the man with strings attached.

RE: We do this every year, and it's what keeps us going.

BT: It's a crazy two weeks. Lots of tag-team DJs, prizes, we have a ton of swag. KISS' manager just pulled up this morning and brought a big box of coffee table books and signed stuff... In fact, he loves the station!
