Good morning, Geoffrey. Lovely start, I imagined Queen Elizabeth frolicking in the first snow of winter with her Royal Corgis.

Good morning Jeffrey & Jeff & everyone!

Mary Lattimore/Jeff Zeigler CD Slant of Light available still. Pledge $20 to be eligible...

I'm against all of those too Jeff. They disgust me

I made my pledge to Hearty White's Show; you can too. 800-989-9368

What they should do is color the gaps between songs on rekkids!...
WFMU is often characterized as nutty or ramshackle or whatever. From a purely Marketing Strategy point of view - I suppose so - but otherwise - I would like to more often hear it characterized as the smartest, best-informed, richest & most interesting continual source of Music & related Culture.
@freedsman: Compared to more conventionally-funded stations, FMU operates on a *fraction* of a 'normal' budget - yet it's streets, leagues, lightyears ahead in both Form (five streams, playlists & community comments, archives & more) - & in Content. W/ no Commercials. (!)
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 7:08am Jeffrey Davison:

To freedmansbeardman: I know jack about mortgages, but we bought this building way before Jersey City was a destination, so I think the mortgage is okay. I believe that running a 24/7 station, plus our huge web presence, which is an amazing treasure, costs money to run. What is the average electric bill for a one-bedroom apartment these days, for example?
     Sat. 3/18/17 7:16am Listener Robert:

The location was actually a big deal, in that it would attract live acts, especially when they got that performance space ready. It took a decade or so to finance the replacement of their tenant with that performance space. Plus, it was excellent timing in that at that time, Hoboken was ritzy while J.C. was run-down.
     Sat. 3/18/17 7:22am Listener Robert:

The opening of Monty Hall was good timing in another way, roughly coinciding with the demise of Maxwell's.
     Sat. 3/18/17 7:24am Listener Robert:

But I'm glad listeners like freemanbeardsman are always thinking about cost-saving measures.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 7:27am Jeffrey Davison:

Yes, as Robert points out, the proximity to the PATH station allows a lot of musicians (who don't have money or an entourage) to get here for a few bucks. And a reminder, a lot of the musicians we champion come here before they later become famous and praised from everyone else. We play their music, and we're often the first to do so, just because the music is good, and for no other reason.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 7:27am Jeff Conklin:

The passion for the station in terms of listeners thinking about mortgages is impressive. We survive on a shoestrng budget. Ours is not to question why but to only to do. Massive thanks to all who support this weird ship

hey, did my pledge come througj ?
  Sat. 3/18/17 7:40am Joe stalvey:

This show is one of the main reasons I upped my annual pledge to mouse level. I will not miss the dollar a day but I would damn sure miss FMU. I hope in the coming year the station comes up with ways to incentivize people to pledge at that level. Most regular listeners and commenters should be able to do that much unless they are living some modern day La Boheme life, which hopefully no one listening today is but if you are I have a t shirt I can spare and god bless you. Music by algorithm is weak beer, so support good beer and send FMU cash!
  Sat. 3/18/17 7:46am Joe stalvey:

BTW, anyone who thinks a million and change to run a full-time media operation in a major metro area is "insane" is living in an alternate universe.That is just silly.

Seems unlikely to me that there are a lot of fans of both WFMU and Trump...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 7:52am annie:

my "plunge" into the depths of donations to this station have not made "toast" of me. i happily give to such a great station. i have one more bit to give to mr brainen's show, and i'm pleased that i can afford my promise of 45 a month. it may not last long, but now i can do it; and i live on a very limited income. radio is my life
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 7:58am fred:

@River: A great thing about the station is that it is even unlikelier that there would be none
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 7:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@River: We might be surprised. There is a certain overlap w/ FreeForm ideals & Libertarianism - while Listener Supported seems Democratic Socialist to most of us...Drumpf however is not necessarily favored by all Conservatives, even...
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:05am fred:

Unfortunately, the generous billionaire demographic seems to be sorely underrepresented in WFMU listenership
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 8:05am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- as are the strings always attached...
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:13am Jeff Conklin:

So our goal for this show is 4000. We're close but need help. Call 1-800989-9368 or pledge online at wfmu.org
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:26am fred:

You don't have to be rich to make a difference: just pledge what you can afford, and consider the Swag for life way, which makes it easier for you and brings some financial predictability to the station
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:29am Jeffrey Davison:

Pledge what you're comfortable with. What I sometimes say is: a pledge should hurt just a teeny bit, so it's significant to you, not pocket change. Some might disagree, but that's just how I feel.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:41am fred:

Put it that way: think of the great moments Jeffrey's show has brought you in the past year. Compare that to what you got each day from a crappy vending machine snack or terrible coffee. Now spend that little amount that adds up on the good stuff instead of the crap
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 8:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I cannot believe the word that only 1 in 10 regular listeners donates! If true - I ask - if you can only do a little, please everyone - do that little. Only $10 / month makes a Swag For Lifer!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:48am Doug Schulkind:

If I had a nickel for every time I did a Google search for an artist and it led me to a Shrunken Planet playlist...

...I'd donate it to WFMU.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:48am fred:

Jeffrey has a show at 6am on weekends. I don't know when he wakes up for it, and it's probably something my mind couldn't cope with. Reward that kind of dedication!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:51am Jeffrey Davison:

Thanks for all the love Rev, the inimitable Doug Schulkind, and all of you the FMU family...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 8:54am annie:

so glad you made your goal, jeffrey..thanks for another great show!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 8:55am Jeffrey Davison:

Thanks to everyone who pledged to FMU during the 2017 Marathon. You have til midnight tomorrow...
Thanks!!
