Get Ready For I-95’s Classic Rock Request-A-Thon for Special Olympics
They're gonna move the coffee pot right in to the studio, roll up their sleeves and ready themselves to rock out the entire day!
This Thursday, starting bright and early at 6 a.m. and going all day till 5 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 for $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 they promise the money is going to a fantastic cause!
Earlier this year, I-95 was approached by Chief Josh Ewing of the Orono Police Department & 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 Opening Ceremonies of local Special Olympics Events.)
Chief 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!
Now these Torch Run folks are pretty passionate about the Special Olympics--in a way that you can't help but be inspired by. So everyone put their heads together and came up with a plan:
We'd do what we do best: play fabulous classic rock 'n roll.
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, Chief 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 into 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.
