Today: Me & Flea
On Saturday I took a drive to the Meadowlands Flea Market in search of Trump supporters. Along the way I spoke about the Marathon and my decision to part ways with WFMU. At the flea market you'll join me on the search for interesting old items and for Trump supporters. Below are some shots I took while there so you can go all "full immersion" if you like.
Last Week: The "U" stands for "Upsala"
Last week I took a drive back to the first location of WFMU in East Orange and found a subdivision where Upsala College once stood. The picture above was taken during the Nightmare Lounge, circa 1988 in the old main studio of WFMU underneath Froeburg Hall.

Recent Feedback
I've been waiting for a backlog of comments before putting more in this newsletter. These are from the playlist, Marathon pledges and direct email:
  • This show gave me pause to think. About my own family and the wider world! I don't understand why the FMU world has dismissed their first and best call in host. Unless none of you have families or give a crap about the wider world, which is basically composed of families... Shame on you all! Unless Chris is in a lawsuit trying to extract $ from the WFMU entity that we don't know about. Never refer to WFMU as "Family" again.
  • What? I don't see a single comment on Chris T's show from yesterday. If true, this is an insult to a guy who has contributed tons of great listening over many years. If, not true, my access to the comments has been frustrated by the stupid new website and coded sign in crap they are now foisting upon well-meaning fans like me. Still trying to follow your new format, Chris. I hope you will get back to live calls and interviews someday because that is your gift!
  • Hi Chris T.! I am thankful for your podcast! This is the first time I've listened to your podcast since you went off the air but I intend to listen from now on. Gotta catch up on that Josh Friedman episode. Thanks!
  • Wating For the return of Chris T He Says 30 years!! is enough I don\'t believe it\'s over...... NO WAY.
  • Honoring Chris T and his epic run. Nobody did it better! Nothing but respect, buddy.
  • I don't know why, but I really love these guitar lesson shows -- I could listen to these every week. The post-op shows were good too, but you really captured the pain, so I'm glad to be back to something a little lighter.
  • Good luck in a future endeavors. My first real \"immersion\" in regard to your show came in the early 1990s. At that time, I was driving to work each day from Jersey to Westchester, and coming home on Fridays, I\'d sit in massive traffic and listen to your shows -- The phone calls and conversations provided some great entertainment in the midst of that aggravation!
