Please Support “Talking Animals” (& Me! ) During WMNF’s Winter Fund Drive Feb. 4


I’m asking that you support “Talking Animals,” and me, in our Fund Drive show Wednesday, Feb. 4, 10am-11am ET–but, ideally, BEFORE then!

As always, we have Exclusive Thank You Gifts for those who donate on behalf of “Talking Animals”…

Like killer tickets to see The Who kick off their The Who Hits 50! tour April 15 at what used to be called The Tampa Bay Times Forum, and tickets to see comedian Lewis Black–of “The Daily Show” (&, recently, “Meet The Press) performing at the Straz Center.

Other “Talking Animals” Exclusive Thank You Gifts include a week-long stay at a Hawaiian condo on the island of Kauai…two copies of “Catification,” the book by Jackson Galaxy & Kate Benjamin, signed by Benjamin–& she’s also including Hauspanther cat toys with each book…And Pocket Monkeys! As you might suspect, these aren’t animals we’re offering, but an amazing 12-in-1 tool that can do anything and go anywhere, including on airplanes–it’s TSA approved! Details below.

That hour of our fund drive show on Feb. 4–from 10-11am ET that morning–is the only time our show will be “credited” with your donation.

If a pledge comes in afterward, it’s credited to another show,  but you can give beforehand… how ’bout now? Read more…
