When participating in parkour, you periodically yell out "Parkour." That's how parkour works, per Michele.

QUESTION TO WFMU LISTENERS: do u listen to WFMU online all the time or on radio - and on the go or sitting down at desk? Second question - do u listen to "Give The Drummer Radio" and other WFMU curated live streams? If so how often and what do u like/not like about them compared to reg. WFMU live stream and playlists? TNX
  Fri. 2/17/17 7:22pm Betamax81 (Aaron Hali):

Hell yeah, Sammus is back AGAIN!? You got my vote for cohost of this magnificently unbridled display of anti-patriotic-propagandamas
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/17/17 7:22pm robyn:

Billy - I listen online only. Browser and app. Only online-only stuff I listen to is Pseu's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/17/17 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

always online, always while working or cooking. i very rarely listen to the drummer stream even though i've done shows on it, which is probably bad and i should listen to it more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 2/17/17 7:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Wake 'n' Bake JAM in the AM shows were great. Not sure how's come you're not in the top three finalists, Billy Jam. Maybe something happened in the swimsuit competition?
Avatar Fri. 2/17/17 7:24pm spidermank:

am coming straight outta Oakland, CA today - and right after this show -am in a (last minute) art exhibit in North Oakland - Gallery 57 - corner of Telegraph Ave. (same as that book title) and 57th St.
Avatar Fri. 2/17/17 7:46pm still b/p:

Out of the region by a few states, so only listen online. Used to be mainly a sitting at work thing, but I ain' there no more, so now when working, browsing at home. But some shows I go to the computer specifically to hear, including some on the Drummer stream. I choose shows on that stream primarily for their music choices and eclecticism. but the particular brands of DJ presence add something.
Avatar Fri. 2/17/17 7:47pm Billy Jam:

exhibit is of mannequins - and I have one a WFMU tagged one - well not full but armless female torso mannequin and will be among a dozen on exhibit - got invited last night when I cycled by the gallery where dank is welcome and pizza eaten and graf celebrated -and they do outreach to homeless and all ages from youth to senior _ will be there by 6pm -
