Brad Heads to Crawford to hopefully broadcast LIVE from Camp Casey!
And yes, once again, we need your help...

We interrupt our previously scheduled vacation to head to Crawford, Texas! (NOTE TO GEORGE: Some things are important enough to interrupt vacations for.)

Because we were on a break, our vehicle is already loaded up with camping gear. We are still several days away from getting there, but once there we hope to be able to get on the air with a special "Operation Noble Cause" daily edition of The BRAD SHOW via RAW RADIO to be broadcast LIVE from Camp Casey!

Whether or not this will be possible is still way up in the air --- there are many daunting obstacles to overcome to make this all happen --- but we are going to attempt to do whatever we can to make it so. We have received 24/7 clearance from our network to get this series of broadcasts out from on the ground in Crawford if we can figure out how to cobble together the pieces and equipment necessary to do so from out in the middle of nowhere.

As I've said, there are a lot of "ifs" still in play to make this all happen, but we're going to give it our best shot.

Your help towards to make this effort posssible is both needed and appreciated!

If you are able to DONATE TO "OPERATION NOBLE CAUSE" I thank you in advance. This effort will be both difficult and expensive to pull off, so I assure you this will not be the last time I ask for your help in making it all happen unfortunately. I wish I didn't have to, but until a Freedom and Democracy Loving Angel shows up, you folks are needed to help continue to counter the spin of the Rightwing Liars, the complacency of the Democratic Party and to see that the Truth of the Message continues to reach Americans!

Please feel free to use the "Email it to Someone" link on this item to share this call for help!

For those cynics who would point to the frequency I'm forced to come to you all with hat in hand, I should mention that every dime I've ever been able to raise here (and it has not been many dimes!) has gone immediately back into both the blog and the radio show. I continue to lose money on all of the above, even while my credit card companies are doing very well thanks in the bargain! All I can hope is we "turn the corner" at some point.

In the meantime, your help is greatly appreciated!

For the duration, the tremendous BRAD BLOG Guest Bloggers have agreed to continue on here to allow me time to get to Camp Casey and figure all of this out on the fly...If I can...Peace.

UPDATE: If you or anyone you know has access to various radio broadcast equipment (microphones, headphones, mixing board, telephone hybrids, etc.) and/or cellular/satellite Internet uplink resources, please contact Kat@BradShow.com ASAP!
