Options February 26, 2014: Fundraising marathon week 1 with YO LA TENGO playing your requests for pledges plus co-host GAYLORD FIELDS!

Add or read comments

It's week 1 of the 2014 WFMU fundraising Marathon and I've got YO LA TENGO (not pictured above) live in the studio, along with co-host GAYLORD FIELDS (also not pictured above)!
Make a pledge now of $100 or more (I said or more) and you can request a song from YLT for them to play live during the show! PLUS you'll get my premium CD Starting With The '70s vol. 3: Punky, Poppy, Glammy and Dancey (pictured above), containing 20 killer kuts from the 1970s that never made it on to a K-Tel collection. Pledge $100 or more now and get your request in!
If you prefer, you could just make a $75 pledge to get the Starting With The '70s vol. 3 premium CD -- but if you're going to do that, why not just spend the extra $25 (or more) and request a song from Yo La Tengo?! DO IT!

You choose premiums later when we send you the bill.
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:11pm Mary Wing:

Yes, Santos, you'll receive a final bill and you can choose the goodies then.
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:11pm Santos L Halper:

Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:12pm Mary Wing:

Although if you want to adopt someone/something, you may need to choose it sooner rather than later; since they are highly sought-after things.
  Wed. 2/26/14 9:13pm 12539:

@Santos, you can sort out all your swag at the end, but I think adoptions have to be paid and chosen before March 9.

Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:15pm JakeGould:

Mary, Gaylord, etc… So have done a few pledges to different shows at the basic level. Does that mean I get a dozen stickers? I’d rather just get one sticker & appreciation! Now I shut up & stay focused!

Now where's my Yo La Tengo t-shirt...back in a moment!
  Wed. 2/26/14 9:18pm Gordon FM:

Is it legal to swear on the video stream but not the radio stream? That means you could now *mouth swear*!!!
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:18pm Mary Wing:

Jake, it all gets totaled at the end, and you get to choose the swag at the total amount. So you only get one sticker. :-)
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:19pm JakeGould:

Even if I did it via PayPal?

Yep; it all goes into the same pledge account in your name. We don't send out any swag until the summer, so you're not in danger unless you have pledged/paid under a few different aliases.

Hey everyone! Get those pledges and song requests in early - that gives YLT More time to figure them out! 800-989-9368 or use the white pledge box at the top of the page!

Hi Evan,
Do I have to bump up my pledge from last night to hear my fancy request? I thought the email pledge link would credit it to your show as intended.
Thanks as ever, Td

@Gaylord, yes; even more awesome
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:49pm efd:

Hi Mildred! Thanks for your pledge(s) -- in order to request a song you need to make a pledge of at least $100 during this specific show. I know you split your pledge - if you want to up it, put a note in the comments that you're upping your pledge to $100 and re-state your song request.
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 9:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@Holly: No, Sixties Kinks belong to me; Julie gets all the other decades.

THere are actually 2 black t-shirts: the goldfinch (state bird of NJ) design, available with a $50 pledge, and the black woof-moo shirt available for a Swag For Life pledge of just $10 per month and up. I don't think that's very corporate.

@Folsom I'm not 100% sure about this but I believe that after the first year the Swag For Life pledge isn't credited to specific shows. BUT there may be a workaround for that if you talk to Joe McGasko.

Hey, somebody request a DEVO tune! I swear I'd do it myself, but I don't have $100 to donate.

Excellent, crazy ass Lindsey Buckingham. Great version!

Was I supposed to check the premium box or does the $100 automatically indicate that I want one?
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 10:48pm clark:

@Holly, wow! didn't know the inspiration of that song was in NC. grew up in a town with mill housing. depressing.

Ahmad, you'll get a chance to pick a premium after the marathon ends. We send send you a confirmation letter.
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 10:50pm Whooda:

That was super sweet. Thanks for whoever dropped the Benjam into the juke box for that one (NY / Devo)
  Wed. 2/26/14 10:51pm Carmichael:

Holly, did that come out of that odd movie they made, something highway?

Cool, thanks. Breezed through the form without reading carefully then noticed it wasn't listed on the receipt. Same with the shirt?
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 10:54pm Holly in NC:

@Clark - Here's J. Loudermilk's house

Yes, Ahmad, you can choose all the things your pledge amount entitles you to get, after the fundraising ends.

i think only Columbia U.'s station is more non-mersh those guys are not even on the radar of commerc. anything but their programming is more..er..limited
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 11:07pm efd:

BUT they're still affiliated with Columbia. WFMU is totally independent.

Someone request a Devo "Satisfaction" please!
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 11:12pm JakeGould:

LovecraftDude888, the amount of decent stations in NYC is dwindling. WBAI used to be decent, now they are just paranoid 24/7/365. WFMU is good people.

Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 11:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Skirkie: The majority of these are untried. Even the songs they know well as individuals, they've likely never played together as a group.

THis song took a turn!
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 11:46pm Gaylord Fields:

It was the Records' "Starry Eyes" cleverly segued into Eddie and the Hot Rods' "Do Anything You Wanna Do" when we realized we know more of those words and they're basically the same damn song.

Oh wow! POISON!

I wasn't sure they could handle hair metal so I balked on my original request and went with something else. I'll have a Motley Crue pick ready for next year.
