I only realized it a day or so ago, but our broadcast last week marked the 4th anniversary of "Decipher's" debut on WPFW, when the entire "Decipher" crew packed into the studio for the first time to introduce ourselves to the WPFW audience.

Hopefully, in the 200 or so weeks since that show, we've managed to endear ourselves to a few of the WPFW jazz-heads that didn't think hip-hop needed a place on their station, and we've made a respectable number of hip-hop fans supporters of WPFW, the one station in the DMV that's opened the door for us. Shout-outs to the production teams of Ill Street Grooves, Blackademics, Holla Back, The Power Hour, and The Lab for all your efforts in keeping this movement going over these past four years.

WPFW's Winter Pledge drive continues, and it's been one of the most successful we've hosted yet, thanks to those of you who have generously given to the cause. Thanks for making us look good! Next Thursday is the last show of this pledge drive, so, if you haven't gotten arround to supporting the station, the block, or the show yet, please consider representing for us then.

Thanks so much for making our first night of WPFW's Winter Pledge Drive such a success! We exceeded our pledge goal for the night, and we actually had more calls than our volunteers could handle... that never happens.

If you couldn't get through last night, we'll be at it again next Thursday-- February 5th-- and we'll need another section of our listening family to represent for us, so hope you'll be there!

During pledge drive shows, the busier you keep us on the telephones, the less time we spend on the microphones, and the more uninterrupted music we can get on for you, which we know is why you tune in every week... so keep those phones ringing!

Thanks again.
