Thursday morning, we're just gonna move the coffee pot right into the studio, roll up our sleeves, and get ready to rock out the entire day!

This Thursday, starting bright and early at 7 a.m. and going all day till 7 p.m., JStew and Cori will be playing any and all classic rock requests you can throw at them … for a price.

No seriously, you'll have to pay to get them to play your special request.

For a suggested donation of $5 for regular songs and $10 or more for those really obscure ones. (Of course, if you want to give more or less, they'll put it to good use regardless, so don't let that stop you.)

And we promise the money is going to a fantastic cause!

We started this tradition last year when Josh Ewing, the representative of the Maine Law Enforcement Torch Run (you probably know them best as the law enforcement officers who run the state, carrying the Flame of Hope to the Opening Ceremonies of local Special Olympics Events) approached us with the idea.

Ewing asked if we would help in the effort to raise money for our local Special Olympics Programs. And there was no way we were gonna pass up this opportunity to use our airwaves for good!

If you aren't familiar with how the process works, it's pretty simple: JStew & Cori sit in the studio all day. A rotating cast of characters from our local law enforcement agencies comes in and out to visit and chat on the air...

Some of them stick around and even help out, like one of our favorite pals, Ed, from the Orono PD, who manned the phones for hours last year...one of the sweetest guys you'll ever speak with.

You call the studio line at (207) 991-9713, make a request, and give us the amount you're willing to donate...

One of our friendly Torch Run volunteers will take your information...

And then, in a highly professional fashion, we're handed post-its with this important information...(don't worry, the actual financial info is put onto a form with a little more clout than the little yellow square.)

Then we do what we do best: play fabulous classic rock 'n roll.

Having been friends and co-workers for a while already, we got wind, just before Christmas of 2019, that we were being partnered up and primed to take over the morning show for I-95. And we were so excited! (Photo credit: Kevin Bennett)

And they'd do what they do best: be helpful, supportive and awesome.

And then you could get in on the action and do what you do best: listen, donate and share the love!

With this winning formula, that caters to everyone's wheelhouse, there's no way we won't cross the finish line with heaps of money for an awesome cause!

And the great thing about this, Ewing says, is that all the money we raise on Thursday goes directly to our local Special Olympics.

"All donations go directly to support the amazing athletes of Special Olympics, all over the state of Maine. Area local law enforcement officers and volunteers will be answering phones, taking requests, and accepting donations.  Local Special Olympics athletes will be getting a chance to talk on air with J Stew and Cori, to give shout-outs to Special Olympics Maine."

So, let's do this! You'll want to keep this number handy: 207-991-9713. That's the number in the request line. Or, if you're listening on the app, just hit the "Request-a-thon" button. That way, you don't even have to remember the number. How easy is that?!

Get your thinking caps on and figure out what songs you want to hear. Then check the couch, your pockets and that old coffee can in the freezer for your extra cash.
