Thanks for the thread! Quick correction: 12pm Eastern is noon, so the event starts at 9am (not pm) Pacific and so on for other time zones.
Also, Craig Harris is a confirmed guest, along with Billy Berghammer and Jeff Kalles (Penny Arcade, also formerly of Nintendo of America). We are working on additional guests but can't confirm anyone else yet.
Later today, I'll be updating the blog page with far more detail on planned content, the tentative schedule, and our fundraising goals for each hour.
As mentioned on the last episode of RFN, we would really appreciate any help spreading the word to anyone who might be interested in an all-day, Nintendo-centric live radio show for charity. There will be a lot of listener interaction, so I look forward to maybe talking to some of you on Saturday!

We are kicking off with New Business (basically Whatcha Been Playing) with Billy Berghammer making his first post-EGM appearance, at noon EST / 9am Pacific. We also have a ton of prizes to give away throughout the event -- check the blog link above for a complete list, which includes a number of Wii/DS games and some rare gaming swag. I am very excited about the SNES 20th Anniversary discussion, the live GOTY roundtable, and hourly listener call-ins! Hopefully some GAFfers will tune in and tell their friends.

Craig Harris and the Radio Free Nintendo crew are discussing Star Fox (SNES) right now live. It is a pretty interesting conversation. You can ask him questions at the end of hour if you join the chat at nintendoworldreport.com
