The annual WHUS Radiothon takes place starting Saturday February 22 and goes through Sunday March 2.
Red Rooster Party has a precarious time slot this semester because it is shared with sports. Until yesterday, Feb. 21, we were not even going to have a show for Radiothon, but thanks to the good Lord and His weather, it appears we will now have close to a full three-hour show for the first Sunday of Radiothon; 1pm until 4pm Eastern Time on Feb. 23.
Marti and I have gathered some items that will be available as premiums to thank listeners who contribute during Red Rooster Party at the $35 level and above. Check them out:
The Golden Gate Quartet Collection
2-disc set! 48 songs!
Grey Cat on the Tennessee Farm
Great modern recreation of some of Uncle Dave Macon's best known songs, by Peter Feldmann and a Who's Who of great musicians including Byron Berline, Dan Crary, Dennis Caplinger, Wayne Shrubsall, and Bill Bryson

In addition to these great CDs representative of the music of Red Rooster Party, there will also be thank you premiums with new station logos available at differing contribution levels. One of the logos is a WHUS gramophone which certainly carries the spirit of Red Rooster Party. Listen in 1-4 pm Sunday, Feb 23, for more information.
