Surprise gifts from our Arts Partners
A lot of our listeners stop listening while we’re having a pledge drive….perhaps they’ve already given their pledge for the year….perhaps they don’t need to hear all the wonderful reasons to support our station, because they are already supporting it and know what a treasure it is. Understandably, they love KMFA because of the constant, beautiful music we offer.
However, here is an insider’s tip: our Cultural Arts Partners often provide gifts of tickets, so we can offer them as incentives throughout each day of the pledge drive. These are surprise giveaways, spontaneously offered on the air, and some folks have really scored some GREAT tickets! Just now, Kevin Patterson dropped by with some tickets to the Austin Lyric Opera’s upcoming performance of Emmanuel Chabrier’s The Star. Just like that, the next three callers got tickets to this amazing event! So, with just one pledge, they got great tickets AND they get to support classical-music radio all year.
We’ve also given away tickets to the Texas Early Music Project, some theater tickets to FronteraFest, and even tickets to Texas Performing Arts events.
Stay tuned for some incredible offerings coming up, like passes to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and Austin Classical Guitar Society…. and of course, we are still playing lots of wonderful classical music!
