DJ Mark Curdo will run on minimal sleep and lots of ginger all week long. Who benefits? WE DO! But more importanly, so does the Center for Grieving Children and all the incredibly important work they do.
It's the absolute best week in radio! Make a pledge to the Center for Grieving Children cgcmaine.org and BAM! Mark will play ANY SONG YOU WANT (as long as there's no profanity).
Some of my previous requests include Lionel Richie's "Hello" and Irene Cara's "Flashdance...What a Feeling" but this year I'm making all local requests!
Need to hear Iron Maiden? Tiny Tim? Kool & The Gang? Air Supply? Barry Manilow? Rick Astley? A Flock of Seagulls? Huey Lewis & The News? Beethoven? Glenn Miller? WHATEVER YOU WANT!
IF YOU PLEDGE...CURDO WILL PLAY IT! Call them
Hey Curdo, did you ever know that you're my hero? And you're also a hero to all of the young people and their families who benefit so much from The Center for Grieving Children.
For the love of crazy requests for a fantastic cause...TUNE IT and reach into those wallets. Every dollar REALLY COUNTS!
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
