  Wed. 3/2/11 12:07pm Carmichael:

Great name for a band!
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:07pm pierre:

Good luck KURT
pledge pledge pledge
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:08pm Handsome Harry:

Present and accounted for, in every cents of the word. BLIZZOW.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:10pm Katherine in Seattle:

I wish I could listen in. Good luck!

  Wed. 3/2/11 12:10pm Cecile:

Can I pledge to get Kenny G back?
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:11pm Sean:

Kenny G will return as Kenneth Gorelick, or as Kenneth Goldsmith? One might be better than the other...
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:12pm Cecile:

I love you Kurt, but you are wrong. It's their Duran Duran record.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:12pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

Up and Adam out here in the Pacific NW, and ready to chisel off a bit more from my prize account for Ken's show.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:13pm Scottm co-host:

Pledge now, it's fun!
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:17pm glenn:

there's a town in northern ontario called marathon. have they pledged yet?
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:18pm Cecile:

there's also a marathon Wisconsin. Or as Billy Jam would say marr-a-thon.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:19pm BodegaMan:

The Kurt + Scott McDowell combo seems like a good match.

Unfortunately, I can't pledge today. my wife wants me to use a certain credit card that I don't have on me.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:19pm hamburger:

I'm currently smokin a pack a day but will do a -half- marathon in September :)
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:25pm BodegaMan:

wait. so. it's possible to pledge on multiple shows and settle up at the end of the marathon? didn't quite get that but figured that's how people pledge on multiple multiple shows.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:26pm Chris in Madison:

Should be a "bill me later" option that would compile pledges post-marathon
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:27pm max:

  Wed. 3/2/11 12:27pm frenchee:

I feel pumped and punked, just pledged!
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:27pm Scottm co-host:

Yes! You can pledge to multiple shows to get in the running for prizes then settle up after the marathon.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:29pm 12539:

When pledging online, you CAN select "bill me later" when the payment page comes up.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:29pm frenchee:

KG: there's a simple rule (always is, with the deutsch) about pronouncing Ie vs. ei...
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:29pm Volunteer Gordon:

Much pumped and punked love, frenchee.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:30pm herb:

wow, great song. and since i spreche a little deutsch, this is what i told my german instructor what my job is: "ich bin ein amerikanen fusbalspieler!". me wanna know more about LILLIPUT. anyway, off to e-pledge...
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:31pm frenchee:

Gordon! I should've added "plinka" for your keyboard kontributions
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:31pm max:

liliput were from swiss
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:33pm Volunteer Gordon:

In fact, it's a pig handpuppet doing the broken keyboard solos.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:33pm Corporal Dingwall:

Donnie O. Nice.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:36pm fred:

I would pledge right now but I have to stick to some old-fashioned values. I don't enjoy that much, but it's a way to give a fair chance to newcomers. I've been around too long, time for the new blood to get a chance.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:41pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

Congratulations, Sarah, on being a first-time contributor to WFMU!
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:47pm Sarah:

Thanks and even more thanks for all the great tunes!
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:48pm glenn:

hey carmichael, another good mash up is to sing six days on the road over the chords to san francisco bay blues by jesse fuller.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:50pm herb:

(1) since you mention ALAN LICHT, he wrote a terrific short bk, "an emotional memoir of martha quinn" (2) i'm starting a "donate to wfmu but then add an extra 1%, if you can, plz" campaign. leaflets to be dropped from the sky.
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:50pm Sarah:

This song is kind of amazing
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:53pm Danne D:

Frencheeeeeeeeeee :)
  Wed. 3/2/11 12:55pm Danne D:

You can adopt this comments board!

It's just like adopting frencheeeee and all your other board friends :D
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:00pm Carmichael:

Got it, Glenn! I posted a link on Ken's board to Gilligan/Stairway. Check it out when you get a chance.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:06pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

Thank YOU, Kurt and Scott. Still doing calculations but I estimate myself to be 85.672% more interesting now.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:08pm frenchee:

Dannnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeee Deeeeeeee!
I loved "Running in Place," nearly spouted coffee on the keyboard.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:08pm glenn:

i watched it. i don't know how to play stairway. one of my life policies is to not learn how to play songs i hate.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:15pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

Right now listening to this is getting someone pulled into a disciplinary meeting in an office with an uptight manager.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:16pm maja:

Jaap Blonk! He is dutch too!
I like the Illustration by Emma Ball for the comments board.
It's worth the money!
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:16pm Ike:

That was an outstanding interview.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:18pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

  Wed. 3/2/11 1:18pm Bendte:

Hi Kurt and Scott. My name is pronounced Bendy. The "t" is silent. Love both of your shows!
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:21pm yair Yona:

Sound like Es music
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:21pm Cecile:

throoooooooooooooooooooooooooop throooooooooooopppppp pfffffffffffffffffffft ffffft.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:21pm yair Yona:

Sound like Es music
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:21pm Cecile:

Like Bendte straw?
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:22pm Ike:

That's an awesome name, Bendte. I wasn't paying attn. -- is that Norwegian? Swedish?
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:26pm Bendte:

Yes, like bendy straw. Thanks, Ike. It is a Danish name.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:26pm minnesota jeff:

Did they just give out the prizes? Were both to canadians?
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:26pm yair Yona:

Jaap blank is my new Elvis
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:29pm Danne D:

woooo go University of Illinois :)
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:35pm minnesota jeff:

Last year I was a prize winning super star, this year I am bombing out. I guess I will just have to compete against weird Europeans at 4:00am to improve my winning percentage.
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:37pm glenn:

isn't weird europeans a tautology? (ha ha)
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:52pm DJ Keili:

  Wed. 3/2/11 1:53pm hamburger:

I first tuned into WFMU from their last marathon, and thought, well I only just tuned in, I'm not pledging, and now, I'm shootin' for a fragmenet mouse :D
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:55pm DJ KG:


thanks for listening and chatting and pledging everyone!
  Wed. 3/2/11 1:57pm Tortoise and the Hare:

I finished the marathon! in world record time
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:00pm pierre:

thank dj KG for playing the sound of wednesday evening
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:02pm Bryant:

Coffee Labs here in Tarrytown, NY, donated some coffee beans to the WFMU-a-thon this year!
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:02pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

@Hamburger, it feels fantastic to do! Good on you.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:11pm minnesota jeff:

I think about it like this - If WFMU was a Juke box hanging on the wall would a put a dollar into it every day to listen? Yes, yes I would. Also, when you give at a Mouse Pledge ($365) level you can pay in monthly installments spread out over the year, pulled right from your credit card.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:13pm pierre:

noooooooo don't say that !!!!
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:16pm hamburger:

I'd want a refund from Kenny G's hour of pain tho :) Sorry Kenny G! (actually I'm not sorry)
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:16pm minnesota jeff:

pierre - Don't say what?
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:17pm That's right, LYNNWOOD, WA!:

In my opinion WFMU is THE radio station.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:18pm pierre:

Kurt was saying that nobody loed his show, and each time i listen to it, there is always people enjoying it. But i agree that on the comment board, its notvery clear what i was talking about.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:19pm pierre:

"loved" not "loed" - sorry
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:21pm jesse:

I'm here to tell you that the prize account works. thanks Kurt for an excellent program!
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:25pm minnesota jeff:

jesse - Good to know. I was getting nervous I was being segregated because of my prize account. I was FLUSH with prizes last year and I am bombing. Good to know its purely crummy luck and not sabotage.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:26pm DJ KG:

aw thanks pierre. i was just playin', tho. and thanks for the coffee!
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:30pm pierre:

300$ in 30 minutes that make 10$ per minutes : GO !
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:31pm Danne D:

maybe you're suffering the dreaded sophomore slump minnesota jeff? :)
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:31pm Danne D:

But I will say that the wee hours are a great way to up your batting average (and give props to the hearty overnight DJs as well) :)
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:32pm Former Prize Vulture:

@MN Jeff, sabotage is rare. There are a few MCs who are anti-prize-vulture but not many. Maybe sometimes better to do it in increments of $20 or $25. Also increase in worldwide listeners may make it harder to win.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:33pm Danne D:

I can assure you they play straight up with the vultures :) I really felt like I had won enough last year (and just wanted to use the pledge to do a shout out) and won a couple of things by accident anyway :)
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:34pm Danne D:

so FPV, your saying listener outsourcing to other countries is partially to blame ;)
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:35pm Chris in Madison:

Last year my box o goodies included a copy of Gene Simmons' Family Jewels Season 3, signed by none other than Gene himself... funny thing is, I have no recollection of that ever being offered, much less bid upon by me...

To quote Charlie Sheen: WINNING
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:38pm minnesota jeff:

Chris - I remember that being a prize! I seem to recal it being one of the Sunday evening ladies prizes for some reason.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:38pm hamburger:

@Chris in Madison: Do I have to youtube Charlie Sheen - Bipolar to find that quote?
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:39pm Chris in Madison:

This should be all you need:

  Wed. 3/2/11 2:39pm hamburger:

wonder how many WFMU DJs are turntablists
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:41pm minnesota jeff:

hamburger - I would assume DJ Trent, DJ Rupture, DJ Marty McSorly and DJ Small Change would maybe have some chops in that realm.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:42pm Former Prize Vulture:

@Chris thats probbly a case of a pledge neglected for the intended drawing then slipping into the next drawing. Happens sometimes. I recommend u pledge immediately upon hearing about prize u want. Don't delay. Delaying increases chances of getting accidentally held back. Also better to pledge over phone. Quicker.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:43pm hamburger:

thanks Jeff! (not Andy Breckman? :'( )
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:43pm Chris in Madison:

@MN Jeff: Man... I'm not usually a Sunday lush, but perhaps it was a drunk pledge? No worries tho. It's since become a strangely prized possession :D (cc: FPV)
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:45pm Chris in Madison:

@FPV: Yeah, at work it's a lot more discreet to hit up the online voting, but once I'm home the personal touch of a phone call is the preferred method.
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:49pm Chris in Madison:

wait: voting? what am i talking about? all these madison political scuffles be messin up my mind!
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:51pm Former Prize Vulture:

@Danne u never witnessd anti-vulture MC behavior?! Really?! No way :) But it seems less common lately i'll admit... i think used to happen a lot in late nite. @chris voting ha ha ha, well, u're voting with yr cash to keep free-form ALIVE
  Wed. 3/2/11 2:55pm Chris in Madison:

@FPV: HA! By far the easiest vote I make each and every year!
  Wed. 3/2/11 3:00pm hamburger:

ou this pledging talk is bringing out the gambler in me
  Wed. 3/2/11 3:00pm hamburger:

congrats Kurt and Scott!
  Wed. 3/2/11 3:01pm wigwambam:

Wow that joyful outburst makes me want to find religion!
  Wed. 3/2/11 3:01pm Handsome Harry:

Great show today. Godspeed.
  Wed. 3/2/11 3:11pm Danne D:

massive browser failure so I missed the happy conclusion :)
