We ARE ON for tomorrow!!!

Dear Funkateers,

I know it's been a while, but have no fear. I have been assured by management that the Campus Center will indeed be open and the Funk will flow tomorrow, Saturday, from 1-4:30pm. Not to be missed, my Women's History Month sets and some tracks off a glorious new record I just picked up.

So sorry! No show today either!

Hey Funkateers,

I am so sorry -- I had not heard that the building where the radio station is located will be closed this weekend for the university's Spring Break. So I guess we'll be back next weekend, 3/17, usual time.
