Eddie Vetter? Git thee to a towel!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:10pm still b/p:

Took a moment for the eye to see what was in the image..thought it was a something else, then a something else, then hey whoa!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:10pm fido:

forgive the spelling. the functional literacy rate of dogs is shockingly low.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:10pm Marmalade Kitty:

It s taking a while to assimilate what I am looking at<<< ..a woman with Hitler forehead?
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:13pm Marmalade Kitty:

Neat shift Mr. Gottschalk!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:15pm ?:

I’m so so sorry to the universe and all the gods of heaven and earth, but, for the life of me, I just do not understand what all the fuss is about with Prince. Bob Dylan neither
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:16pm Parq:

Clearly, no one vetted Fido's Eddie opinion.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:17pm BSI:

NOW WE'RE TALKIN'...... crank dat Bolly!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:19pm still b/p:

Today, Fido needs some ayurvettic treatments.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:20pm Ike:

So, Kurt, are you raga-ed out then? Not that I'm complaining. I'm not.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:21pm fido:

my bitch is on the raga
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:24pm Marmalade Kitty:

..actually, if you look at the womans face from upside down, looks a bit like JFK with false eyelashes & make up!!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:26pm kiemzi:

not the revolution, the new power generation!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:27pm BodegaMan:

score tied 5-5 w ten minutes I was thinking you should've pulled out "Sign O the Times"

you didn't fail to disappoint last Friday, that's for sure.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:27pm Ike:

You stand by your choices? That's not what you implied at the end of the show last week. Come on, you played B-sides and stuff only available in Europe, you goofbucket. :P :P ;)
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:28pm Brass Knuckles:

shoulda pulled out...I've said that a few. the picture looks to be farrah fawcett.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:30pm r i s k y:

Om!!!!!! Yes!!!!!!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:30pm r i s k y:

Om!!!!!! Yes!!!!!!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:30pm r i s k y:

Om!!!!!! Yes!!!!!!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:30pm fido:

"shoulda pulled out" <--- that's what she said
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:30pm DJ KG:

hi everyone! not to worry - we're making our way back to the ragas.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:31pm DJ KG:

ike - had i played to win i might have made different choices. but my selections were sincere. that's what i stand on!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:32pm Cecile:

HA, you DID throw it.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:32pm DJ KG:

and friday raga party people, please! consider donating to the miniature minotaur show! click on the thermometer above the playlist. i need to do some catching up after last week...
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:34pm DJ KG:

i didn't throw it! no way! but in hindsight i see what i might have done to win. on the other hand, how many of you would have stayed tuned in for three hours of prince and temptations hit singles?
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:34pm das:

DJ KG: Does wmfu accept IOU's?
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:34pm Cecile:

I would have.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:35pm Cecile:

they don't play either on oldies or top 40 anymore
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:35pm still b/p:

A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.


Sincerity is the way of heaven.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:36pm Wild Neil:

Hi! I was wondering if the purpose or at least one application of Raga day was in support of OWS or perhaps OTW (Occupy The World?)...Is this movement about the PEOPLE of the world tired of being occupied (pun intended) with issues of survival in a greedy fuedalist corporatacracy? Just wondering, anybody else have any idea or know?
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:37pm das:

I still think you could've taken it if they would have accepted the 'songs that use numbers or letters instead of words" category
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:37pm Ike:

Prince hit singles? Yeah, I'd've stayed tuned in for those. Temptations hits, NO, never -- sick of those -- but I was surprised at how much I liked some of their groovier lesser-known tracks.

Sincerity?!? Really? I agree with Still B/P.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:37pm Wild Neil:

This is one heavy-ass song!!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:38pm BodegaMan:

can't I pledge and have you send me a bill? I thought that was better for the station instead of the credit card fees and such..
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:39pm das:

I meant to say whut BodegaMan said.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:40pm Wild Neil:

I am both sincere AND naive....
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:43pm DJ KG:

trying to get an answer for you guys re: paying later. i'm not sure.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:44pm das:

I'd like to hear this song played at 45.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:46pm Wild Neil:

That would be a BUMPIN metal dance song....
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:46pm fido:

ken mentioned during the "state of the station" 9 days ago something like the fact that 35% of non-credit-card only-on-paper pledges never get paid, which screws up planning how to cover monthly station expenses during the year.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:48pm Ike:

Yeah, Fido -- I previously figured the 3% (?) credit card fee made checks preferable, but on a pure math level, 35% check mail-in is much worse. Even if it were actually just 10%, that's still worse. That's how NPR plays it: They'd rather have a 100% chance of having the money NOW, even with 3% deducted. Not that FMU should necessarily emulate NPR, but they ARE masters of hoovering up listeners' cash.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:50pm Van in Dallas:

I believe it was Doug (Give the Drummer) who said that a pledge now works just fine...$$$ can be sent in later. I don't swear by that, but I'm pretty sure that was what he told us...
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:53pm paula pc:

Kurt - Seven. Thebes. You RULE. Thank you. And another pledge question -- can we sprinkle pledges a-la the Marathon and then they get aggregated at the end of Awetober? Should we indicate on the form that that is what we're doing? thank you...
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:54pm fido:

normal c/c fee is 5%, that's why government entities make you pay a 5% "convenience fee" when paying taxes by c/c. they won't look at the 5% as overhead, like stores do; they want the full amount you owe, period. so they shift the c/c processing fee onto you.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:54pm DJ KG:

paulapc - yes, sprinkle away! we'll amalgamate at the end. and thanks!
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:55pm das:

paypal is a good.
(I can't figure out how to form this sentence. Sorry)
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:56pm michelle:

I was wondering the same thing as paula pc and was sprinkling in hope. Thanks for the assurance.
  Fri. 10/14/11 3:57pm Carmichael:

My "insta-pledges" were insta-billed to my card, as I expected. As individual transactions. I suppose you could mail a check in, or use a credit card instead of a debit card. Or hold up a bank and walk the cash over to the station. Lots of options.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:01pm Van in Dallas:

You're okay KG, you didn't say it, you whispered. No voice, no foul
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:02pm Carmichael:

You were almost a minute late with the station ID, Kurt. Could this be why the station is in the hole? FCC fines?
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:03pm Van in Dallas:

Actually, since your tenant at WFMU canceled AFTER this whole silent support thingy started, ya'll ought to be allowed to go in to full vocal beg mode now
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:06pm das:

Satan will help
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:07pm moose:

just thundered here
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:07pm fido:

the tenant is a branch office of a realty company. they are closing or moving their jersey city office, which was on the ground floor.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:09pm Van in Dallas:

Ah, didn't know that. But supposedly that's another $82k/yr to make up I think it was. That really hurts...
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:12pm fido:

if you search the www for FMU's actual street address, you'll find the realty office. their website treats them as still open. i am guessing the lease is not being renewed, but there is no way to guess what the upcoming terminal date would be. the space would probably rent for less nowadays than the realty office agreed to pay back in better real estate times, prior to 2008.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:14pm DJ KG:

sorry - credit cards and paypal are the only options this time around. but as others are noting here, we do need an influx right about now.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:19pm das:

What if you guys opened a dildo store in the newly vacated office? That could help fill a few holes in your budget, no pun intended.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:19pm BSI:

wow, hey. This piece is the bee's knees.
This would be Navrattan Korma, yes? The curry theme continues. Me likey.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:20pm DJ KG:

we might need someone to come in and manage the operation, das.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:21pm DJ KG:

bsi - yup
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:22pm andymorphic:

its la monte younges birthday....he is pretty ragaesque
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:23pm Ike:

Srsly, somebody else suggested a bar. I bet that could be profitable even after you pay the bartenders. But maybe you can't get zoning for that. So dildos are another good option. Maybe musical dildos? Buddha Dildos instead of Buddha Boxes?
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:24pm das:

Lamonte is still kicking? Wow!
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:25pm das:

Now your thinking. A musical dildo bar...
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:30pm andymorphic:

he's 78
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:33pm fido:

making money with a business is a lot harder than it looks if you haven't actually tried it yourself. it's actually pretty easy to lose a lot of money if you calculate wrong or guess wrong. most startups fail. a lot of research can help, but is not a guarantee. being a commercial landlord is actually a relatively safer business, as long as you can get more in rent than you have in landlord expenses. (note the subtle OWS references here)
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:43pm Ike:

Good point re: most start-ups failing. (N/s what you're implying politically, but I've had enough politics for this week.)
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:45pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard this Fahey, although I've heard others like it.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:45pm das:

If you ever need help losing money I hope you'll come to me.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:49pm das:

Any idea if that's a 6-string or what he's playing?
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:51pm DJ KG:

pretty sure he plays a 6-string acoustic lap steel (or "hawaiian steel")
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:52pm Marmalade Kitty:

good question! what is he playing?
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:53pm slab:

why do hotdogs cost so much more per pound than an actual cut of good meat? Much of the time you can get a good steak per pound for less or the same price as a 16oz package of hotdogs.
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:53pm Marmalade Kitty:

indian slide guitar!
  Fri. 10/14/11 4:58pm das:

I've never seen a package of steaks for 99 cents
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:03pm Marmalade Kitty:

there is rarely any dog in a hotdog mostly mechanically recovered chicken feet and stuff
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:07pm Cecile:

Is that a Prophet's Song loop?
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:09pm DJ KG:

the loop is from the wfmu "ruinning in place" locked groove lp. no idea what the source is. sorry.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:10pm Cecile:

where are you shopping, slab?
Even at my local schmancy butcher, steak is way more expensive than the sausage
they make in house.
I'll bet it's from Queen's Prophet Song. There's that whole bit where they go "and now I know" over and over again.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:11pm Marmalade Kitty:

did you know that all of us will take our turn, in the life cycle, as farm livestock and ultimately produce? as sure as we turn to dust..
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:13pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I'm enjoying the raga afternoon.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:15pm slab:

i am talking about the better quality hotdogs made from all beef or pork and beef and often have natural casings. those are not made from the scraps but select cuts of meat, though with more fat in than meat. but still these hotdogs cost about as much per pound as a NY strip. then if you are talking about the cheaper chicken hotdogs those cost more than if you bought actual chicken meat by the pound. you can often get whole roasting chickens for 99 cents a pound or the most couple of bucks a pound. and I rarely see a package of the cheapest hotdogs costing less $1.50. usually over $2.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:16pm DJ KG:

@marmalade, punctuation smile
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:16pm Cecile:

Well, these are great hotdogs, and they are about $4-5 bucks a pound less than NY Strip. Then again, I'm in the midwest.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:17pm Cecile:

But yes, good chicken on sale is a better deal than hotdogs. It goes a long way.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:22pm DJ KG:

am i wrong to find irony in the discussion of meat prices during a raga show ironic? it reminds me of the time i found myself at a sushi reception in the baltimore aquarium. (which is an amazing aquarium, btw)
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:23pm DJ KG:

double ironic!
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:23pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I want some curry.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:24pm DJ KG:

me too!
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:25pm Marmalade Kitty:

time does not exist while in meditation, so it seems
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:25pm Emma Kosher:

Gotta love cheap porks
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:26pm Marmalade Kitty:

or during..
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:32pm Marmalade Kitty:

  Fri. 10/14/11 5:33pm northguineahills:

Better then Prego.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:36pm Marmalade Kitty:

Hell Yeah!
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:37pm slab:

i didn't get my pig heads order last weekend because it was too warm. needs to stay below 50 degrees to slaughter pigs.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:38pm DJ KG:

one more pledge before the end of my show would make me happy!
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:40pm Mike East:

Is this from the Village Vanguard? This is my go to Coltrane collection
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:41pm Marmalade Kitty:

so a small life reprieve for mr & mrs pig..
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:42pm DJ KG:

meast: recorded at the vanguard, released (first, anyway) on "impressions"
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:47pm Mike East:

aha, I see. The box set I have is Complete 1961 Village Vanguard recordings.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:48pm DJ KG:

ah, yeah, that makes sense.

the vanguards are the best trane for sure!
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:50pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Wait, this isn't a raga.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:50pm Mike East:

I just put this Husker Du track on a mixtape with a "Singles and B Sides" theme....in fact, I think I was singing it yesterday (in my head)
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:50pm DJ KG:

it isn't?
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:51pm andymorphic:

i was at the masocism world live track flipside gig in winnipeg
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:52pm Marmalade Kitty:

this is tearing up my meditation.. in a good way!
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:53pm Mike East:

very cool, andymorphic. Recording quality sux on that track, but the energy is there.
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:53pm andymorphic:

also saw bob solo in Brooklyn about a year ago....amazing song writer
  Fri. 10/14/11 5:54pm Marmalade Kitty:

  Fri. 10/14/11 5:56pm Marmalade Kitty:

Thanks Kurt!! :)
