Listener comments!

  Mon. 3/1/10 9:15am Vicki:

morning!
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:20am Charcutero:

Good Morning! Thank you SO much for playing Amon Tobin!
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:20am dc pat:

MARATHONG!!
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:22am Danne D:

Woohoo! First Regular Pledge!
Good luck guys! All you commenters and listeners out there pledge like the wind!

Looking forward to the fun and hijinks this week!
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:25am The Man:

Boooooooo.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:26am PMD:

Guys - don't forget to promote the pledge for life thing! I'm signed up for that.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:33am seang:

i'll be pledging this week, no doubt, station changed my life
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:35am helsinki fred:

Hey Holden is great! More female-fronted music please :) Here's a great collection (3 parts, 12 discs !) http://kangnave.blogspot.com/2010/02/reference-of-female-fronted-punk-rock.html
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:36am Vicki:

Ken's got THE CHAIR
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:36am Joe Steele:

I'm probably not even going to turn on my TV these next two weeks.

♥ WFMU
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:37am dc pat:

gah! don't even say "hockey"...
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:39am helsinki fred:

Hockey? Spotted today: "I'm kind of glad the US didn't win the gold because the players would just have to pawn them in 20 years to cover their health insurance."
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:40am yayson:

yay pledge drive
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:41am Joshua K:

I think this is the only pledge drive on earth people actually get excited about.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:41am Danne D:

Booo Go Illini :)
Or at least beat the Badgers so we don't miss the tourney.
Btw there are just way too many cool premiums. One good solution to this problem is to pledge $3k and get EVERY premium. But pledge as much as you can. It all goes into great radio all year long.

USA Hockey :( But at least Marty got some rest for the Devils stretch run :) But I digress. Pledge Pledge Pledge!

Okay Joe Steele - hold down the fort would ya?
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:42am helsinki fred:

French stuff good. Maybe some Prototypes? Might be a little grating tho if you're not at all into electro.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:47am dc pat:

pretty nice tune here.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:50am Cecile:

Morning!
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:51am Cecile:

I bought Ken. So I'm tapped out.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:54am Joe Steele:

I know these DJs are expensive. And they don't even tell you about the food and booze bills.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:54am Cecile:

Play some Voivod, man. That last album was great.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:55am Cecile:

Ken is especially high-maintenance what with all the tramadol, tequila and scotcheroos. ;D

I love you Ken.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:55am JJZ:

I feel like it might be timely if you played that Hockey Night in cAMONda song.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:58am Cecile:

We won BOBSLED! BOBSLED! And Men's Figure Skating!

I was really stoked at least.
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:59am bw:

VIVA WFMU!
  Mon. 3/1/10 9:59am The Man:

No obscene bonuses? What a waste.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:03am Charcutero:

Neon Indian!
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:04am helsinki fred:

How weird, MySpace has no band named Ponzi Scheme
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:07am Bert Yardbrush (UK):

We won fastest woman on a tea tray - and that's it.
You got the money - looking forward to the Tee.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:07am Ken:

Morning everybody! I lover you Cecile!
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:11am fishmonkeystew:

Happy Marathon, folks! I actually look forward to this marathon when it comes around. Is that weird?
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:20am ?:

The "guy who became a pilot" sounds more like Iron Maiden than Motley Crue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Heavy_Metal
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:24am Ken:

Ah yes, it was indeed Iron Maiden! Thanks.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:24am The Internet:

Anytime, Ken.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:28am jesse:

I meant that you guys are the beast!
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:30am Joe Steele:

Hey twitter users, I made one of them little logo jawns you put on your picture: http://tinyurl.com/yksjzl2
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:32am Jimm:

oh.. this stuff (B>O>C) sounds great on busted speakers. very lo fi.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:42am SOme dj:

yeah, but what about the cute djs up for adoption?
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:43am dc pat:

jeeze, 2 bucks/slice is a pretty good deal these days..
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:50am Cecile:

YES. Anchorman quote.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:56am dc pat:

YEAH! WELCOME! These guys are great.
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:57am dc pat:

beer and ice cream, yeah..
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:58am nakedfoul:

One of my favorite Seattle bands, for many years. Great stuff.
Wish they released more records
  Mon. 3/1/10 10:59am dc pat:

what happened to 'em? I saw them with about ten other people couple years ago.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:00am trent:

I'm not one to hate but my premium contains 730 songs and a limited edition glowstick
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:01am trent:

but bob's has more soul
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:01am Ex-Montrealer:

Bob W. makes me miss Mondofrites and Frite Alors, Atwater Market and NDG...
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:04am Cecile:

The swag is a big draw.
You get a coffee cup for a $75 pledge for other...nonprofit...stations. Here you get premiums, clothing, stickers!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:05am JJZ:

Yeah, this year is an especially good year for premiums. I had a lot of trouble picking out my mouse pledge worth.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:06am Joe Steele:

Other "listener supported" radio is so god awful boring when they ask you for money.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:07am Ex-Montrealer:

Wait, you're associating Mondofrites with vomit, Bob? And now you say they're gone? What gives?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:07am John McCabe in LA:

hi Ken did you open my box yet?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:07am Joe Steele:

WFMU is responsible for about 75% of t-shirts added to my wardrobe in the past year.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:08am X-Montrealer:

@Joe: some years it's 100% for moi
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:08am Cecile:

I don't do print tees any more except for the gym, but that hoodie has gotten plenty of wear.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:09am dc pat:

yeah, you and me both Joe Steele
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:09am Ken:

Yes John, thank you so much! The shirts are GREAT! I will unveil them to the first phone crew this morning!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:10am bobw:

no! mondo frites was my favorite! la poutine alsace! they're closed though. but la banquise does the trick. thanks for all the support! keep it coming! merci bien!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:10am John McCabe in LA:

YES, thanks Ken
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:10am Ken:

Cecile, how would you like me described in the adoption gallery? Since you adopted me and all...
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:12am X-Montrealer:

I appreciate the clarification and recommendation, Bob.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:12am Cecile:

God-Emperor of Dune.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:13am will:

How does one find out what song(s) is sampled for that Noonday Underground track? I recognized some 70s prog band in there and now it is driving me crazy trying to remember.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:13am -max-:

That's great, Cecile!! Now I love you too!!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:14am Ken:

Really?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:15am Cecile:

I never read the book, but I always thought that was a great job title.
"I'm a plumber. What do you do?"
"I'M GOD-EMPEROR OF DUNE."
"Bet that pays pretty good, hey?"
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:17am Cecile:

Of course, if you don't like it, I can think some more.

thanks -max-!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:17am BSI:

...nobody ever pays me in gum...
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:18am Ken:

Thanks Cecile. I prefer something else, something not sci-fi related if possible.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:19am Cecile:

Oh, that's right. You don't like the sci-fi. *sad*

*thinks*
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:20am Joe Steele:

Fearless Leader?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:21am Cecile:

Ringmaster of the Psycho Circus, or The Prince of Parties?
Fearless Leader is good, too.

Or you could be Surgeon-General
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:21am MONTREAL:

Not to be greedy but Ken/Bob is it possible to spread a mouse pledge over a few shows in order to get in the running for several give-aways?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:22am dc pat:

How about "Loser In Charge" (loser, in a good way)

Man, gotta say, I'm a liker of the harder stuff, music-wise, but I'm really digging this show.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:23am Cecile:

King of the Losers! From the Danny and dusty song.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:24am Ken:

Thanks Cecile! I love Prince of Parties! Also Price of Pastries and Prince of Panties! MONTREAL! Yes, you can do that, just pledge a Mouse pledge and choose the "Prize Account" option online.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:26am Cecile:

Prince of Parties it is!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:28am MONTREAL:

Thanks, Ken.

Bob, does Bloodshot Bill count as a Montreal act these days? Still puts on the best show in the city.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:29am Murdoc:

Free listen to new Gorillaz album one week before release - not sure if it is possible to stream outside of UK...
http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2010/mar/01/gorillaz-plastic-beach
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:30am John McCabe in LA:

your welcome
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:32am mark:

Sometimes we in Vermont go to get booze in New Hampshire at the liquor stores. Fireworks too. And recently Danny Devito was at one promoting his new brand of whatever it was. But imagine all that money spent on booze and fireworks that could go to WFMU
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:33am The Man:

Curse you, Ken.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:38am Cecile:

whatever happened to L7?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:39am Cecile:

and this version is way better than theirs.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:40am Parq:

@ Montreal: I can confirm that you can do it that way. I've done it the past couple years running. And it works! I always pick up at least a couple MC prizes.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:41am Cecile:

I stopped doing that because I never picked up MC prizes. Because Parq was getting them all.

:D
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:44am Danne D:

Prize accounts are always fun :) Not to give away big swag secrets but there are certain times of day that are more conducive to prize winning. Just sayin'. I also tend to monitor Parq's sleeping habits, thus giving me a slightly better chance ;)
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:45am Ken:

Curse you Danne D, revealing the secrets of the swag!
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:49am Parq:

Geez, guys, you make me feel guilty! I'm going to do much less this year because I already made a pre-thon payment so as to do an adoption. That adoption has already proved controversial, so I will say no more.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:51am Danne D:

ARGH!!! Actually the competition at those times is much fiercer now cuz it's drive time in Europe.

Hey Ken on a side note - any idea how many different countries FMU has gotten pledges from. I imagine we have more support than the UN.

Btw, Parq, I'm just kidding. It's part of the whole marathon dynamic. Win as much as you can, baby! That's what the prize account is there for :)
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:54am Parq:

Thanks Danne. There's usually an interactive map that shows the geographic distribution of the pledge traffic. It's kinda fun. I expect this year's will be up soon.
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:55am Danne D:

It's freeform prize-getting :) None of that rationed-out prize stuff. Btw, FMU has to totally lap the field in terms of generosity with prizes - seriously. I know about the map, Parq - it is cool :) Was figuring Ken might know the answer to my trivia. Have the axis of evil countries ever pledged?
  Mon. 3/1/10 11:55am marq:

Yes. The marathon is probably the most fun and exciting two weeks of the year for WFMU and listeners. But I always have such a hard time deciding when to pledge. Do I do it during a favorite show? To get some interesting swag thingy? Or do I just pledge before the marathon and forget it? These are tough things to have to think about. Or to beat JM.
