Pause for the Cause

When it comes to raising money, WAMC really knows how to rally the troops; Tomorrow the station turns its attention to Hurricane Katrina, with a special one-day radiothon to aid disaster relief. Since there are limits the type of fundraising the station can do, the effort required special dispensation from the FCC. Tune in and give it up ---or switch to Time Warner channel 3, where you can donate directly if you have digital cable.

Speaking of the FCC...

In order to aid relief efforts, the regulatory body has seized the phone number 1-800-RED CROSS from a company they claim was squatting on the sequence in hopes of an big payoff.
