Is the billboard available in bumper sticker form?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 7:58am -Ken:

Mornng all, yes, I have received a few complaints. Some upset people have claimed that the billboard includes CHARLES Manson, the serial killer from the 60s, but I am pretty sure it's showing MARILYN Manson, the singer. That was who I requested, anyway.

Marilyn's a girl's name, so that must be her on our left. That's Charles Rihanna on our right. The names go audience left-right, but the faces go stage left-right.

Someone ask Justin Bieber to post a selfie of him and the billboard in the background so he can share it with his 1.8 billion followers. I'm pretty sure there would be at least one potential WFMU listener among them.

Danny, I'e a location or 2 picked out for a WMFU billboard: US 206 facing northbound in Byram:

"Just over the hill...[cartoon of Courtney T. Edison DJing]...switch to 90.1 FM, WMFU."

I need to scout to see if there's a billboard there. I think there was one until they widened the road & added a truck climbing lane.

  Wed. 9/20/17 9:22am Will:

Billboard is going to backfire. Charles Manson has a swastika tattooed onto his forehead. His solo record LIE has never been played on FMU as far as I can find. No amount of ironic or even nihilistic humor can be used to justify using his image. Still a subscribing listener but a bit ashamed, Will J.

Danny, in NJ pretty much the whole of route 17 is in WFMU's, not WFMU's, coverage area. Do you mean north of Suffern? Maybe on the Quickway?

I hope you get the gag in my proposal: WMFU gets good reception starting just north of that hill on 206 in Byram, the Old Codger symbolizing being over the hill.

Actually WMFU's usually receivable fairly well in Stanhope; it's the shadow of that hill north of Shop-Rite that cuts it off around Shop-Rite. But there may be a hill on Route 17 in NY that has a similar effect -- though at that point it might be the "watershed" between WMFU and WFMU xltr WEE239 (?) on 91.9.

Although I would have gone with the four out of five doctors, a "conventional" billboard is a HORRIBLE idea. Free publicity from huffy outraged moral-majority types is PRICELESS! Although it's NJ and people are probably pretty hard to offend these days, so it may not work... we'll see....

@jake: I like the billboard because it's bound to get people who don't know the station and have a sense of humor curious enough to tune in. I know if I didn't already know the station and saw it, I'd tune in immediately just to know wtf this station was all about and then I'd be drawn in and become a listener and therein lies donations and all that. But then not everyone has that kind of sense of humor/tolerance for weirdness...

BrownynB,

I agree with you. I also hear songs from the archives without looking at the artists and it happened the same: I also liked a Manson tune because it is intrinsically good. But someone here in the comments says he's a horrible composer/singer but I guess he believes that because of what Manson represents. I guess we can judge the work of criminals independently of the person.

@Pierre @Pierre I think the interesting thing about Sparks is how they've managed to "evolve" from genre to genre over the decades (Power pop, glam, new wave, dance, whatever you want to call Lil Beethoven), but the core elements-- Ron's songwriting and Russell's voice-- have remained remarkably consistent and recognizable throughout.

No such thing as "just a font." But I don't mind it.

It's a generic brush script font. Lipstick on a motel bathroom mirror. It's perfect.

Oh yeah, that's the site of the old Westinghouse factory. Super toxic most likely. The Mormons opened a church across Orange Street a few years ago.

@Rich: haha will do. i hope this does become a thing eventually. We just have to find our Ronette (I am the Russell-ette). I had a dream we got in a fight with an all-female Queen tribute band but I can't remember who won.

That font is GREAT! Font unbelievers must be vanquished with the holy fire of hippie-punk free-formity! Or something.

For sale: slightly-used Jack LaLanne elk juicer. Hooves, antlers, even tough cartilage no problem. Also good for whelks.

See you next time, SM Ken, and Ken listeners.

Just caught the Mortal Micronauts-Burroughs on the archive. I went to the University of Kansas and they were a local Lawrence punk band. Saw them in a living room a bunch of times. Burroughs lived there at the time - he was shooting shotguns shells filled with paint at plywood sheets. Ginsberg hung out a bit also. Eudora was a town just to the east of Lawrence.
