All You Need to Know About Andymanathon Weekend by Colin G.

The "Andymanathon" was started by the late, great CD102.5 program director Andy Davis when he would stay on air live for forty eight straight hours raising money for children's charities. In his passing the tradition has carried on and there are a couple of ways you can join the cause and have some fun doing it. We need your help.

1) Call WWCD102.5 (614 221 1025) December 13th-December 15th and pledge money to hear your favorite song (Watershed, Colin Gawel) played on the radio. This is your chance to take over the airwaves and show how generous Watershed fans can be at the same time. Think big! How much would it cost to get an entire Watershed record played on Sunday afternoon before the concert? Why not call and ask. Pool your resources. If you go to the studio in person you can get a song played for $20 AND a ticket the the Andyman Benefit concert on Sunday December 15th. Inside tip from Brian Phillips: Saturday morning is the best time to get your song played directly on the radio. More details at CD102.5 website by clicking here

2) Attend the annual Andymanathon benefit concert at the Bluestone (583 E. Broad St - Former BOMA across from art museum). Starting a new tradition, Watershed will be performing first but playing a full set. Doors at 5 pm and Watershed on at 5:30 sharp. Following will be Los Gravediggers, The Whiles (featuring Joe Peppercorn) , The Regrettes, Washington Beach Bums.

All ages. Kids under 12 are free. $15 at the door and ALL THE MONEY goes to charity. The musicians are donating their time. For more details on how the money is used click here to visit CD1025 For the Kids

It goes without saying that this charity and the community who support it are near and dear to our Watershed hearts. We would appreciate it greatly if you would join us in giving something back and helping the kids. - Colin
