Avatar Thu. 10/15/15 12:04pm Charlie:

It's Crunch Time (we're low on money) at WFMU and Give the Drummer Radio, so we're having a Silent Fundraiser (not interrupting programming with an on-air fundraiser). How can a Crunch be Silent? Through support of listeners! Thanks to all who have pledged to this show already -- Amy, Robert, Peter, Paula, Jack, Gary S, Lynn, Judy, Holly, Brian, Michael, Wendy, Vicki, Frenchee, and Melodie! If you can make a pledge to keep freeform alive and free, please do so in the dog and cow graphic, or here: www.wfmu.org...
Thank you!

Fantastic Bolero.
Avatar Thu. 10/15/15 12:06pm Sarah N:

The onion dye was disappointing, resulting in dingy stained cloth. Perhaps it's a new shade: "dingy stainy"! I'm going to try turmeric instead. We all know how that sticks around. By the way, this show the dog's boleros! X

Just a velvet scrunchy, which I don't think is decorative enough to qualify as a doodad! I could tie my hair up with blue fairy lights again though...
