WFMU News: Will Your Pet Be Our Mascot?
Make a pledge to WFMU
this October and enter your pet into our mascot contest!
A creature just like Omar the llama (left) will bask in fame and glory as WFMU's mascot for a full year. Could it be Shabba the turtle or Little Baudelaire the crab? We think so.
Here's how to enter your pet into WFMU's mascot contest
1. Make a pledge
to WFMU, be sure to include your pet's name
in the comments, no matter how historically insensitive
2. Use this page
to upload a photo
of your pet
If we think your pet is cute/cranky enough, they'll be our new mascot. What will this mean? Who knows! You know what it's like with us. But as well as some vague form of animalistic fame, your tax-deductible donation
of $50 or more will get you one of our new t-shirts
(above) designed by Dan Gneiding
, AND will help us purchase audio gear / backline equipment for our new performance space, Monty Hall
. And potentially put your pet's name in lights. And by lights we mean, you know, over there somewhere.
