Listener comments!

  Fri. 3/2/12 3:14pm Danne D:

Pledge in honor of LP Hiss!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:15pm Ralphine:

Is this the Antique Phonograph Music Program?
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:15pm Joshua K:

Is a double mouse a pledge level, or do you have to go up to 1k? Just wondering.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:16pm Looms:

C'mon Kurt and Tamar! Empty each and every wallet around!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:16pm Danne D:

@Joshua here are the pledge levels:
Avatar Fri. 3/2/12 3:17pm DJ KG:

Double mouse is SOOOOOOOOOOO a level!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:17pm Danne D:

The levels at the top-end grade out as $365/$500/$1000/$3000, Joshua
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:17pm BSI:

Jeezus, that MORE MORE MORE tune... I'm having a flashback. I'm at the disco roller rink with L, why the hell is her younger sister here? Git! I'm all trying to be suave, skating backwards & whatnot....
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:18pm Minnesota Jeff:

  Fri. 3/2/12 3:19pm BodegaMan:

Just burned out my eyes trying to do the .gif screen grab and review the last year of MN Jeff's work. stared at it for a couple minutes straight trying. need eye drops.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:20pm hamburger:

Any Japanese Canine/Bovine translators out there??
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:21pm still b/p:

The opening of More More More is a remarkably fast identifier. And I've quoted the song's main line many times. Why does such a song have such powwwerrr?

I grabbed/plucked the gif dozens of times.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:22pm BSI:

Had to look it up. More More More was 1976. Starting to feel a bit...... old..... all of a sudden....
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:23pm Slackel:

Love the show so far! Y'all are crackin' me up!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:23pm Carmichael:

Aint got no love in Korea.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:23pm steve:

this right now is why i listen to wfmu
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:23pm glenn:

this almost makes van halen listenable. almost.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:24pm Jason Elbogen:

This is rather nice.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:24pm Mark in VT:

there was a drinking game I used to play years ago. Listen to Van Halen and every time Roth does a wow!! or an aoghh!! you need to take a drink.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:25pm Van in DC:

Nice job there Minnesota Jeff
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:26pm Looms:

So nice to hear Tamar's voice again (with all due respect)
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:26pm still b/p:

I think beds and sheets raining down upon the rooms was one of the plagues of Eqypt.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:26pm seang:

do i see Dubya in that gif?
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:26pm Becky:

Tamar!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes it's me. Hi Kurt! Greetings from sunny SoCal!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:28pm Minnesota Jeff:

seang: There is no W. in those .gifs.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:29pm Minnesota Jeff:

Van in DC: Thanks!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:30pm Joshua K:

  Fri. 3/2/12 3:31pm Danne D:

Please pledge for these nice people :)

Note to self (41)
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:31pm Minnesota Jeff:

Ruins! YES!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:34pm BodegaMan:

MN Jeff - whoever has the ziggystardust paint kind of looks like W. A little more like Jeb if you ask me.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:35pm Caryn:

@hamburger: Dog is going "wan", which is one way to represent a bark in Japanese, so essentially, it's "woof". The cow is presumably going "moo", although モー might be better.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:38pm BodegaMan:

another quick glance makes the ziggy-dust paint look like Rush Limbaugh. Ugh, that guy should be muzzled for what he said to Fluke the
Georgetown Law student. Makes me sick thinking that people actually nod their heads along with that guy.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:39pm BodegaMan:

My math answer was 666!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:39pm Caryn:

I mean, the cow's kanji sounds like "moo" when you say it, but the onomatopoetic way of writing a cow's moo in Japanese tends to be モー.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:40pm Danne D:

Rooting for someone else to win a prize btw - don't wanna be a prize hog just wanted to give thumbs up to Kurt and Tamar :)
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:44pm Joshua K:

Is it weird that I have a spreadsheet with every pledge I made and it calculates the totals
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:47pm Danne D:

@Joshua K - it's totally reasonable. Better than my half-assed method of posting numbers with my comment posts!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:48pm das:

What was the name of that Celine Dion guy book again?
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:50pm Danne D:

Whoa this is amazing!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:53pm fred:

@Joshua K and Danne D: well, I have a file with all the pledges I ever made to the station. Then again, it's only my tenth year playing this game, and I only pledge a few times at best (and only once this year, to my embarrassment)
Avatar Fri. 3/2/12 3:54pm DJ KG:

Pledge now to be in the running for a book of Angus Maclise art.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:54pm hamburger:

@Caryn - ah - so!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:54pm Julie:

I just hand my wallet to Joe McGasko and he takes out a bunch and gives it back to me.
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:56pm Julie:

I'm a believer! I believe in Kurt & Tamar and their army of tiny minotaurs!
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:57pm Danne D:

This is great too :)
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:58pm TV theme:

Hey, Hey, we're the Minotaurs,
People say we Minotauround,
  Fri. 3/2/12 3:58pm Danne D:

@fred you have nothing to be embarrassed about - you are a great supporter of this station!!! whether it's done in one shot or in little chunks it all goes to the same great station!
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 4:00pm Tamar:

The Celine Dion 33 1/3 book is by Carl Wilson (the Canadian writer). Thanks for listening, and keep on pledging! That and nine other awesome 33 1/3 books can be yours if you are a lucky winner for the grand drawing: $15 or more gets you in the running.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:01pm das:

  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 4:02pm Tamar:

Das, we got two pledges in a row from you for the same amount. Intentional?
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:03pm Danne D:

Tamar will you be gracing the stage of Hoof n Mouth this year? :)
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:05pm das:

Whoops, I only meant one.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:05pm Mary Wing:

Davy Jones didn't sing lead on either of these songs, but they are FABULOUS covers!
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:06pm Paul McCartney:

For crying out loud, Davy Jones didn't sing "Clarksville"! It was Micky Dolenz.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:06pm Julie:

I went through a Peter Tork phase when I was a little older ;)
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:06pm Julie:

Nope those were Mickey songs
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:06pm Caryn:

So what albums do the other 9 grand prize books concern?
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:06pm Bronwyn C.:

Mike Nesmith for me!
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:07pm Julie:

My ears perked up when I heard Nick Mason but I have no idea what it was in connection too.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Mike Nesmith was their leader.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:09pm Caryn:

Nesmith was always my favourite Monkee. Jones and Tork fought it out for no. 2. But I never cared for Dolenz. He could sing okay, but when he tried to be funny, he tended to go way OTT and just start gurning. Had no time for that.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:09pm still b/p:

Mike was called "Woolhat" in the UK.

Surprised how automatically all reports called Davy the lead singer, when Mickey was lead on most of at least the early stuff and I think on far more of the hits, including most of the ones that still show up in oldies rotation.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:10pm das:

Dolenz by blind fury sissy slap
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:11pm Julie:

Mike is a Texan and hard not to love :)
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:13pm Julie:

All Davy did was sing, and he was physically the front man.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:13pm Caryn:

@still b/p: well, you kinda have to call Davy the "singer" of the group, since the other alternative is "tambourine player" and that seems kinda dismissive... And "Daydreamer Believer" is the song I hear the most nowadays (hell, even U2 do it at their concerts), and Davy sang that, so...
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

  Fri. 3/2/12 4:16pm still b/p:

I can see Mickey being all, "Ergh. Now's not the moment to make a big deal of it...but, y'know..."
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:17pm Julie:

Mickey was Circus boy No one listens to Circus Boy
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:19pm Danne D:

From one of Mickey's first tweet after Davy's passing: http://t.co/iIJHkglv
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:20pm Julie:

Micky played the first synthesizer on a rock recording. (the 3rd Moog over sold)
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:21pm Cecile:

yup, Julie.
I liked Mike when the Monkees were first on the air, and his solo stuff, but his subsequent litigious nature has kind of soured me on him.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:23pm Julie:

He also had the best hair. even with the hat
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 4:24pm Tamar:

Here's Kurt being all downtempo doom, but no, it's Monkee this and Monkee that for you. We may have to veer the show in a drastic direction to get your attention.

And Mike did have the best hair. Why the hat?
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:26pm Caryn:

That's just how we roll, Tamar. If Kurt plays something peppy, we'll probably start talking about cannibalism or something.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:27pm northguineahills:

Sorry, actually not listening, just checking in. I'm in the middle of penning some freelance proposals, since I really need to find work ( I haven't worked since July) So, no Multi-mice pledges this year, just a tee-shirt. However, if start work soon, I'll drop more scratch this summer. Cheers, -Aaron.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:28pm Swami from "Head":

To allow the unknown to occur and to occur, requires clarity. And where there is clarity there is no choice. And where there is choice, there is misery.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:28pm Julie:

he was inventing grunge. It just took a while to catch on.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:30pm Caryn:

Loving the Love!
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:30pm Cecile:

ngh, that is all right.
I would pledge some more, but a Kickstarter thing I contributed to actually met its goal! So I gotta pony up. That's a first...
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:31pm Paul McCartney:

Davy Jones sang on that Nadja clip.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:34pm northguineahills:

If the marathon was in March like last year, I'd probably be in better straits. (I also used the last of my $ to take my gf to Iceland, Berlin, and Mexico, and got engaged).

Almost done w/ this last proposal, hope to catch the half hour of the show. Salud!
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 4:46pm Tamar:

"We're all normal and we want our freedom." Residents CD third Reich 'N Roll up for grabs, pledge $15 or more right now. Click on the Pledge widget and see the measurer move to the right.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:46pm BodegaMan:

northguinea - congrats! a three nation, two continent tour! well done.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:46pm Bronwyn C.:

  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 4:47pm Tamar:

Aaron, thank you for giving what you can and we wish you awesome employment for the next year.
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:49pm northguineahills:

@BodegaMan: Gracias!
@Tamar: Dak Dak!
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:51pm Minnesota Jeff:

@Caryn: You are getting down the right track with the cows "moo".
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:52pm other david:

this is a thing of beauty
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:53pm hamburger:

  Fri. 3/2/12 4:55pm Kenzo:

It's so sad that it stopped!
  Fri. 3/2/12 4:59pm Danne D:

Downstaters - that's your cue!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:00pm Kenzo:

Tamar has given me rebirth as a different Kenzo, how exciting.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:01pm Kenzo:

Some of the phones in the phone room ARE rotary!!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:03pm Caryn:

Heh, "Hoof 'n' Mouth Tabernacle Choir"! And like the other famous tabernacle choir, their singing is only available to a select inside group. In this case, WFMU listeners.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:03pm Technology Museum:

@Kenzo: After people donate enough, can we have dibs on those? We'll show them in a room with our hand-crank phones.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:05pm Kenzo:

Rotary phones still work fine on most exchanges. I have friends who use them actively (I use touch tone but it's a 1980 corded phone, nice solid bell.)
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:05pm Nursing Home Patient:

Shonny, we yoozhed to hafta DIAL phonezh, by sticking our fingerzh into holezh.

  Fri. 3/2/12 5:07pm hamburger:

  Fri. 3/2/12 5:07pm Caryn:

Seriously, "stack of 33 1/3 books" needs clarification, since that's 10 books from a possible 84. Besides the Dion, what are the other 9 on?
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 5:11pm Tamar:

The 33 1/3 books, by subject: Love/Forever Changes, Television/Marquee Moon, Celine Dion/Let's Talk about Love, Rolling Stones/Some Girls, Slayer/Reign in Blood, Velvet Underground & Nico, Black Sabbath/Master of Reality, Prince/Sign O' The Times, Wire/Pink Flag, Radiohead/Kid A. You could win them all with a pledge of $75 or more.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:13pm Caryn:

Thanks, Tamar! It's a very cool prize from a very cool series of books.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:16pm Minnesota Jeff:

Whoa wait, what did I win?!???
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:18pm Minnesota Jeff:

Oh man, people, get on trying to win this Kupperman book! ITS HILARIOUS! Seriously, go for this!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:22pm Looms:

Have to go, good luck!
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/2/12 5:29pm Tamar:

So Kenzo is Kenzo after all.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:33pm Robert:

The people with money to pledge seem to have a sense of drama. They wait until near the end of the show, or the last of that show during the marathon, or the end of the marathon, and then put on a kick at the end to increase the suspense.
Avatar Fri. 3/2/12 5:34pm DJ KG:

Thanks Kenzo! And thanks everyone!! sorry I've been absent from the board today. Your support is life-saving and appreciated!!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:35pm Tomato Salsa:

jazzzzz...puts me to sleep.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:39pm Fashion Victim:

Saline Dion Solution Perfume?
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:42pm Danne D:

This guy sounds like he'd popular you with the Tea Party Border Fence peoples.
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:42pm Danne D:

Kenzo is both omniscient and omnipresent
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:47pm Danne D:

PRIZE VULTURES! Now is your time!!!! Pledge and win! :)
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:53pm Caryn:

I'm so happy my meagre possessions got sold in a timely manner, so I had money to pledge! Yay!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:55pm hamburger:

WFMU is Radio Magic!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:57pm northguineahills:

Thank God I was able to catch the last of the marathon! W00t!
  Fri. 3/2/12 5:57pm NO rush:

it's not like Frangry cares if she's on the radio anyway
  Fri. 3/2/12 6:02pm Danne D:

Great Job Kurt and Tamar :)
