Folks, I've watched this game a dozen times. It's just like the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right -- the second one (week) is always better. You want a 52-CD box of Sun Ra? Ain't gonna get it unless you hold out 'till next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/23/14 10:25pm fleep:

First week: listen to samples of all premiums. Prioritize. Strategize. Field strip, clean and lubricate pledge bazooka. Make little circles on the incredibly tiny type in the mailer.

WFMU scarf? Too late in the season. Just saying.

@Droll: Not true! I put together my own prize lists. There's no Week 2 bias at all.

I just made my stragetic pledge: $10. to each child but I could only pledge to half of my children. WHY DO YOU MAKE ME CHOOSE BETWEEN MY CHILDREN LIKE THIS! The other half are outside in the slushiness looking in at me with big forlorn black velvet painting eyes that say. "What's wrong with ME?! Damn it Jim, I'm only human!

I have been forever embarrassed to admit I like this Ambrosia track. Finally vindicated I can come out of the Ambrosia closet
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:28pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Kurt's actually dancing to this. I wish you could see.

Whooda do you ever sleep??

@DJ Johathan did you sleep well today? Been thinking about you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/23/14 11:29pm Santos L Halper:

I'll come out for Ambrosia too (i even like a few of their other songs : )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/23/14 11:29pm pacific standard simon:

My strategy is to spread my Mouse out between 12 to 24 DJs -- some get double, I guess.

@Dave - tell him to stick around for amEdeo's shift!

@DJ Johnathan, I practically do nothing but sleep.

Ambrosia are closet Mellotron lovers:
After the group attended a show at the Whisky a Go-Go in December 1969, to see an unknown but highly recommended new band called King Crimson, their perception of music was changed.
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:43pm JakeGould:

Floyd Bennett Field… Man, I have “risked arrest” doing tons of stuff there in the 1980s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/23/14 11:45pm Ike:

Phone room is quiet indeed. Also, most pledgers wait until the second week, so you have a MUCH better chance of winning a prize in the FIRST week.
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:46pm Dave Mandl:

I actually did risk arrest there back in 2001, shortly after 9/11. I was just taking pictures, but there were helicopters everywhere.
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:46pm Dave Mandl:

Ike speaks the truth. There are two prizes up for grabs now, and maybe one person in the running.
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:49pm Droll:

Daryl Hall & Fripp -- not enough of that. This version is different than the one I have...
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:52pm JakeGould:

Well, hey. Hippies risk arrest! Dave, back in the 1980s they had hangars—now demolished—filled with vintage 1970s/1960s cars that were pristine but covered in a layer of dust. I know because I jumped some fences with friends to hang out in Coast Guard plane wreckage and poke around. Anyway, I started to peer in the hangar and there were all these cars. Found out they were used in military tests for something. Nuke? Maybe. Anyway, got chased off the lot by some guard who lived in an RV. He was in a bathrobe & chased us with a broom. That Coast Guard security! They also had this crazy PX there that was stocked but like only 2 people a day would go into it. Thanks for letting me shared that. Brooklyn is weirder than folks think.
Avatar Sun. 2/23/14 11:54pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: They reissued the song with different vocals. The original (LP version, which is what I played) is much better.
  Sun. 2/23/14 11:55pm HollyT:

YES!!! Monkeeeees
  Sun. 2/23/14 11:56pm HollyT:

Oops, Nilsson. Well, the Monkees did a version of it.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 12:00am Dave Mandl:
