Yes, it was the first live ios radio feed, before there were user-created apps, using a trick with Safari and the way it played streamed quicktime movies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/20/17 6:09pm northguineahills:

I remember reading about WFMU in the Wire in 1998 when in college, and my office had great (at the time) bandwidth and I was able to get the tinny sound of WFMU in FL and Monica was playing, I've been addicted ever since, and then got to move to NYC and play at WFMU.

The Whole Earth Catalogue was the analogue ancestor to the web.

There are also podcasts that aren't streamed! as well as much of the radio broad/stream cast since 2000 in the archives.

Webhamster Henry was there during WFMU's first primordial online times, helping push the state of the art.

Howdeez Mark and Cheyenne!

So, I've been listening to WFMU online for 19 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/20/17 6:11pm Webhamster Henry:

I didn't do that quicktime trick - that was some other friendly dot-com company, but I did write the first WFMU and JM/AM iOS apps.

WFMU was streaming before apps, though, via a satellite link to audionet.
Some of my old web pages are still around from then like this one from 1997:

I could see a Claymation video for this in which the caller slowly ties themselves into knots, or maybe just melts over the course of 15 minutes into a broad pool.

Webhamster Henry: Yep, that was about 7 months before I discovered the WFMU stream in the wild.

The main WFMU playlist system and modern marathon system and a few other things are all from Kenzo, who you can hear on the Give the Drummer Stream.

Going to a performance art/noise/bedroom lo-fi/and a robot dance party from an artist from NYC (I can't remember her name, and I'm not infecting my phone or work computer w/ FB to remember).

Are there a lot of international submissions? if so, are there legal subtleties in the copyrights?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/20/17 6:52pm northguineahills:

I don't mind infecting my home laptop w/ FB, as I can mitigate what happens there. (I don't have enough time to do that at work).

Yes, Liz was always great for sampling that huge trove. Miss the hell out of her. All the more vital that Cheyenne is giving us a great hour's dose each week!

Great show. I showed my daughter some of this stuff (15). She can now do two notes at once, she wants to learn it, amazing.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/20/17 7:48pm oogoo:

I love this stuff. I adore Meredith Monk. But given her contemporaies in Brooklyn, Quens, and the Bronx, who scratched records and improvised their lyrical beats, and became an international phenomenon, you have to wonder how to determine who truly created someting phenomenal and authentic, and who was lost in solopsism. Or more importantly. How a successful artistic platform was promoted and marginslized simultaneously, a form of course found ed by poor brown skin kids willing to dig the dirt and create and a Macarthur Grant Winner who is in essence completely forgotton. Who is the real authentic cultural purveyor and how is marginalization determined. Rich and forgotten, or exploited and exhausted. Clearly bets were lost. Meredith verse the boro of the Bronx. I don't think there was any contest. Cultural was out of her reach. And genuine trends were exploited, cheapened, and exhausted.
