St. Jude Radiothon, Day Two: Monk’s Live Blog

It’s Day 2 and I’m still alive a blogging! 1-800-303-1135

Okay my friends, we’re down to 2 1/2 hours left to raise money for St. Jude. Can I have just one of your Facebook posts? If so, please post this:

95.3 The Bear is trying to help the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Call now and become a Partner In Hope or go to

Thank you so much! Please call your friends and let them know. This hour all Partners In Hope will qualify to win this Hank, Sr. CD signed by Hank, Jr.!


We’re down to our last few hours. Don’t miss your chance to become a Partner in Hope!

I’m back in the studio, well rested and ready to take the fundraising to the next level! Everyone who becomes a partner in hope will be qualified to win an autographed CD prize pack featuring Brad Paisley, Brantley Gilbert, Bucky Covington, and Lee Brice!!
Also, big hugs and thank you to The Tri-Deltas from University of Alabam for their dedication to the phone bank today and thanks to Evan from Krispy Kreme for stepping up! Krispy Kreme donated a dozen free doughnuts to every Partner In Hope today. I also want to thank him for this sugar high I have!


After four hours this morning, it’s time for a quick break. I shot this video before handing off the studio.

I’m holding up better than I thought I would. Even though it doesn’t sound like it, I think my voice is going to make it too. So far the phones are off to a slow start but as we get out and get those kids to school we’ll hear them ring!

It’s early on day 2, the radio station is quiet, all the office doors are closed and here I sit. Waiting for 6am, waiting to get the show started and raise much needed funds!
As you’ll hear when I first open the mic, my voice is going. I’ve been fighting a head cold/sinus issues for the past two days so please pray that I’m able to keep my voice just long enough to make through day two.
I have a feeling today will be great! I’m pumped up and ready for it to begin.

Best of 95.3 the Bear
