When last I posted here, it looked likely that I would become a DJ for community radio station WOMR/WFMR. Well it turns out that I have and that I now have several shows under my ample belt. I’m calling the show the Omnipop Omnibus. The show is currently without a permanent home, though I for now I am subbing ever other Sunday from 1pm to 4pm (with some exceptions due to scheduling issues). This looks to be the schedule until around Halloween. The first hour of my Sunday show is a Gospel Brunch, where I try to mix some well known Gospel singers with some really obscure stuff I’ve found over the years.
The show broadcasts on WOMR (92.1fm/Provincetown, MA), WFMR (91.3fm/Orleans, MA), and online at WOMR.org. Archives are available at RadioFreeAmerica.com for 2 weeks and you can view playlists for all my previous show at Spinitron (click here).
There’s even a Facebook group where listeners can chat with each other while listening to the show. Head on over to DJ Fred’s Omnipop Omnibus and ask to join – it’s a nice group of people, they don’t bite much (unless you’re into that sort of thing).
OK, enough background. Now to the point of all of this.
The WOMR/WFMR membership drive for Summer 2015 starts this Friday (July 17) and I will be taking pledges during my next show on Sunday July 19 (1pm to 4pm Eastern). If you want to pledge ahead of the show, I’ll gladly take your info at any time – just get in contact with me somehow (email, facebook, twitter). You can even pledge online at WOMR.org or call the station at 508-487-2619 or 800-921-9667 – just be sure to tell them that DJ Fred at the Omnipop Omnibus sent you!
Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated by everyone at the station (and I’d sure love to start off with a bang my fund raising career as a DJ)
