"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Good morning! JA, I had a classic WFMU moment last week: we had a rental car and we tried to tune in FMU and we could hear some music, but then the radio started malfunctioning, making a repetitive beep alarm. I got frustrated, hit the dashboard, accused the stupid digital radio of being incompatible with analog signals and changed the station. Then I tuned back in later and then it hit me that the beeping was part of the music you were playing. Hahaha, I'm such a dummy sometimes :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/27/17 9:58am Ike:

To me, the really funny thing is that Manson looks like Father John Misty in that terrible pic of him on the billboard. So everybody on 280 probably thinks this is the station for Rihanna, Bieber, and some FJM-looking bozo who calls himself Manson.

@steveo - Seems like every Friday, during either JA or Bryce, somebody comes into my office, turns their head like a confused puppy and asks what the hell is that? About a month ago, somebody was looking for my aquarium, which I do not have, while I was out.
