PINK FLOYD CAN WAIT
  Sun. 3/19/17 12:17pm Andal:

How can you have any Pink Floyd if you don't leave your Chuck?
  Sun. 3/19/17 12:18pm kensbeardman:

i was hoping fmu would fail this year. maybe next time.
  Sun. 3/19/17 12:19pm Eli from Chicago:

Anybody know what Chuck live recording that was? I'm not seeing any info on the playlist...
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 12:19pm JakeGould:

“Pink Floyd” and 95% of prog rock can exist without a Chuck Berry influence. That is part of the problem with prog!

I believe that it was the full version of what had been edited into the single-ling-a-ling.

But I may have made that up.

Value days are here again. A great deal at a fair price.
  Sun. 3/19/17 12:40pm Joe stalvey:

Donate dollar updates are like the car auction in The French Connection. Demand more mouse pledges, a dollar a day is nothing for most people.

Chuck Berry was a wild pervert let's not freak out too much here dude
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:12pm GrandWazoo99:

I know ‘JM in the AM’ raised lots for WFMU, but it was a stain on the daily schedule. I found the hyper pro-Israeli government morning show unlistenable and disturbing.
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:12pm GrandWazoo99:

Xray & Jones kept me donating for 6 years, and I will increase my donation in honor of WFMU replacing the morning ‘dead zone’.
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:13pm GrandWazoo99:

Everyone should flood WFMU with donations in celebration of untainted Free Form weekday Mornings!
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:19pm JohnMpm27:

another good reason to give !
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:21pm Marc15:

2nd best part of pledging is hearing the shout out - I MISSED IT!!
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:23pm Marc15:

I made a T-Shirt Sized Pledge
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:30pm chris & debbie:

Bowie just joined the pyramid of the dead, wooooo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 1:38pm Folsom:

Who is that next to Bowie?
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:39pm Weeble:

It's Prince.

im trying to figure out who is the one with the bien hoa tee at the bottom left
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 1:40pm 8track:

Havana Moon => Marquee Moon - R.I.P. Chuck Berry, rock and roll would not have been the same without you
  Sun. 3/19/17 1:41pm Weeble:

Bottom left is Alan Vega of Suicide.

  Sun. 3/19/17 2:01pm Marc15:

X-ray's been saying Brooklyn Zoo for years
  Sun. 3/19/17 2:03pm JakeGould:

@GrandWazoo99: “JM in the AM” supported the station for decades without dumping on the rest of the programming. Lots more practiced tolerance towards the views of others than some people on the comments board here have shown towards “JM in the AM.”
  Sun. 3/19/17 2:04pm JakeGould:

@Mandy: Alan Vega.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:05pm chad from oregon:

I wonder if a Chuck Berry has been furiously worked on to be added to the top of the pile once the 100% point is hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:06pm Tim 07030:

Whoa, distance from station goal just went from $101K to $82K
  Sun. 3/19/17 2:07pm SeanG:

pledge pledge pledge!
  Sun. 3/19/17 2:07pm JakeGould:

Wish Greg was around to explain if the pyramid is a pile of 2016 dead folks or is it open to 2017 deaths as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:07pm chad from oregon:

So glad that Abe Vigoda made the cut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:08pm chad from oregon:

I would have been enraged otherwise.
  Sun. 3/19/17 2:08pm JakeGould:

Still say Babe Vigoda should be added to the pile to make it gender balanced.
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 2:09pm fleep:

I'm thinkin' Lemmy at the top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:11pm Tim 07030:

The most recognized person on earth died last year, thinking there's a slight chance he'll be at the top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:11pm chad from oregon:

I am a bit dismayed at the lack of George Michael on the pile. He must have died too late. :(
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 2:12pm Joe B:

Pledge for that A-Bones LP. Billy Miller was a huge part of the WFMU family and his death in November was a devastating loss for rock and roll. Plus, they cover Chuck Berry's Tulane on that record!
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 2:13pm fleep:

Ali? Sure, that would be cool.
  Sun. 3/19/17 2:14pm Sharon Griffiths:

I somehow knew you were going to do it, but when you played "Rock and Roll Heaven, I cried anyway. Thank you so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:14pm chad from oregon:

It has to be Ali.

billy miller at the top of the pyramid! long live rocknroll

We're gonna need a bigger pyramid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/19/17 2:18pm steve:

wow only 81k left to go?!
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 2:18pm Joe B:

Billy loved Chuck Berry of course so a fitting prize to be giving away right now!
Avatar Sun. 3/19/17 2:27pm 8track:

$1.75 per week x 52 weeks = 91.01 > my formula for a painless pledge to WFMU :o)

Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, if we're being consistent. :)
