Good afternoon, Ms. M., howdy, Underwater Ones.

what an odd, pretty picture of city anonymity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:08pm crateslinger:

I have my 4 am coffee looking out across my Brooklyn courtyard watching people's lights go on and off. They mostly get up, go to the bathroom and go back to bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:09pm Carmichael:

I aint got nuttin on.

Carmichael, go put some pants on!

oh dear me, 4 AM? people in bed? is this a time warp?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:10pm Linda Lee:

it's noon where i am.. yikes!

It's noon here too. I had my coffee 8 hours ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:11pm Meghan:

4 am coffee means a very very early job or a long commute.... or vampire....
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:12pm elwyn:

I was wondering what happened to John Lurie, earlier this week. According to Wikipedia, he's focused on painting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:12pm crateslinger:

lol Meghan. I guess I'm a vampire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:12pm northguineahills:

If it was a weekend in Brooklyn, at recently as two years ago, 4am is when I usually got home. (don't drink coffee, it doesn't like me, but love it!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:13pm Linda Lee:

oh! got it! i was putting in a comma after 4 AM :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 12:13pm KP:

Good slightly after noon, Meghan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:14pm Meghan:

John Lurie was doing that show fishing with John....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:15pm crateslinger:

Same here, NGH. For decades, but no more. My kid stays up later than I. No idea what time he goes to bed actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:15pm Linda Lee:

at one time in downtown ny you couldn't spit without hitting the lounge lizards. every bar, every club. it got to the point where i'd say, oh no, those guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:18pm crateslinger:

Ha! Yes, Linda Lee. John Zorn too. Every night, somewhere, but expecially around Houston St.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:19pm Meghan:

I hated getting home at 4 am. That was the worst, especially working cause you would still be amped up from the job and slowly coming down and then the sun starts to rise and you think, well there goes the day.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:19pm Linda Lee:

i see you were there too. and DNA!
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:20pm elwyn:

i have that fishing show on dvd
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:20pm βrian:

It used to be that when 3 am arrived, I'd hear the voice of Al Green.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:21pm crateslinger:

Meghan, why would you get up at 4 am if you worked the night before? Radio show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:21pm Linda Lee:

@crateslinger, were you at the Lounge Lizards show at the Squat Theatre, New Year's Eve 1980? if you were i'll scream! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:22pm Meghan:

oh man, for 6 am radio, I woke up at 4:20.... For fill in's back back back in the day, where I'd take any fill in slot to get my feet wet, you do what you had to do
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:22pm crateslinger:

@LL, no I was not. Didn't get out of Massachusetts untill 1984.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:23pm Linda Lee:

ah. you missed the height of the Lurie sightings phenomenon. but not by much! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:26pm crateslinger:

@ Meghan - I got a lot of respect for you radio people. If I don't get my 7 hours, I am not a nice person. Linda, I missed a lot of the fun in the LES.

Hey there meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 12:27pm Uncle Michael:

Don't get me started on what it's like to get up and do a noon show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:27pm Linda Lee:

see what happens when you actually sleep? :-D
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:28pm Dave B.:

I wanna see some of those DVDs and VHSs

you're a lady after my own heart, Meghan!! we shop the same way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 12:28pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Meghan and crew. Happy Golden Anniversary broadcast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:29pm northguineahills:

During the week, I usually can only sleep 4-6 hours. During the weekend, the same, but I usually also take a 2 hour nap. (I'm a very light sleeper).

My wife has the same weekday sleeping habits, but can sleep 10-16 hours on at least one weekend night to catch up. (heavy sleeper)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:29pm northguineahills:

I saw Antibalas w/in the first few months after arriving in NYC. They're awesome live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:29pm Carmichael:

Today is the most glorious day of my life. A 40 year cold case in which I was involved was solved yesterday with the arrest of a now 72 year old man in Sacramento. I slept long and hard last night!

@Carmichael: Wow. I was just reading about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 12:31pm Ike:

I wonder how much MBV is going to cost. Last time I didn't go because it was something like $70. Maybe I should shell it out this time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:33pm Meghan:

I saw them the last time around and it was still a solid show. Before that the last time I saw them was 1992....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 12:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Nice work, Carm. Send that dude up the river.
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:34pm still b/p:

Was it his police background that allowed him to carry out scores of attacks and crimes without enough evidence for him to be identified or caught?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:34pm northguineahills:

When I saw MBV in 2014 (?), it was maybe $40? It was worth it.

The only time I "saw" The The live was when I was in HS in '94 and a good friend a year older then I had a dorm next to the stadium where they were playing and hung her phone out the window so I could hear the show (they opened for Depeche Mode)
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:35pm elwyn:

@carmichael: that arrest made the news in Australia because the police wondered if he had committed crimes here too (3 child cases).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:36pm Meghan:

oh damn Carmichael! That is crazy. I saw that he was finally caught, lots of excitement about it. Didn't know you were involved. You are now at peace!
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:41pm Dave B.:

I read that Patton Oswalt’s first wife’s investigative writing might have aided in finding him as well

@still bp: apparently, although he was only a cop for 9 years. Fired for shoplifting.

Sac Sheriff received a tip last week based on either the Headline News series or Michelle McNamara's book. Sitting right there among us. Sheriff rousted him at 2:30 AM, just like he did his victims. Sweet justice awaits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:47pm Carmichael:

Sorry, don't mean to hijack the comments list. Just fist pumping time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:49pm Meghan:

ha no worries!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 12:49pm crateslinger:

I'm glad for you Carmichael. Are you in Law Enforcement, or are you familiar with someone this guy assaulted?
  Thu. 4/26/18 12:54pm elwyn:

I need to go to bed. goodnight everyone.

Guido! Hallo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:16pm Linda Lee:

what a gorgeous set. fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:22pm Carmichael:

@crateslinger, I'm a civilian paper pusher for a local LE agency.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:22pm Carmichael:

And I have lived my whole life here, while the crimes whirled around me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:27pm crateslinger:

Thanks Carmichael. I was afraid maybe I had overstepped with my nosy question. The article I read quotes someone saying locals can sleep better at night! Case Closed. Congrats to you and your people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:31pm Linda Lee:

oh my! residents!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:32pm The Oscar:

Slammed with work, but have to poke my head up for the Residents :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:32pm βrian:

When I shop for clothes, I think it's a small man's world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:32pm Linda Lee:

many thanks & congratulations, Carmichael! bravo!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:34pm Linda Lee:

this was such a lovely video too. find it if you can.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:34pm Meghan:

Oh man, I think it's a better world in clothes shopping for a man....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:34pm crateslinger:

Not a man's world for much longer, praise Jah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:35pm Linda Lee:

my gosh definitely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:35pm Linda Lee:

(never been a man's world, of course. he's only delusional!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:36pm northguineahills:

I've noticed since I've started this job, I'm not nearly caught up w/ the news of the day as I used to, as I'm so busy, so, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

/I think I know which locality you live in after reading that article.
(Everyone knows where I live, as I tell everyone.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:38pm crateslinger:

My man clothes shopping consists of getting all the WFMU t-shirts as swag twice a year, and buying a pair of Levis once in a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:39pm βrian:

It's probably more healthy to be at least somewhat out of touch with daily news.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:41pm Meghan:

I have not paid attention to the news for a while now because I just can't keep up with it. It's like a stupid soap opera every day. I just want life to be even keel for a bit.... and nothing ever happens, so I feel like why bother paying that close attention?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:43pm Linda Lee:

at this point it's a matter of mental health to disengage ~ especially since most of what you're offered is emotional manipulation without hope of resolution!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:45pm Linda Lee:

if i must know, i read the news in small doses. tv feels like assault.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:47pm Carmichael:

@ngh, my screen name is my home town ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:48pm βrian:

It's possible not to get too worked up over the news, I guess. But not for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:49pm crateslinger:

I really like this show, especially this set. This rock and roll stuff is making me nostalgic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:49pm βrian:

I'm already despairing that this show is ending. Where will I go?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:50pm Meghan:

I got one more song for you all.... then maybe you should grab a snack
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:51pm crateslinger:

@Brian - Rush Limbaugh is on for another hour. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 1:52pm !ke:

Almost all the special election results (whose results have been mostly very positive, w/a huge swing towards my side of the aisle) are the only things giving me hope lately. Other than that I feel much better when I can manage to tear myself away from news articles for a few days so I can stop feeling we are on course for a post-apocalyptic hellscape, where largely only preppers would survive. In other words, loons. Maybe fascist loons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:54pm βrian:

I worry that the scorched earth campaign is destroying things, so quickly that there'll be nothing left once the pendulum swings back toward sanity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:55pm northguineahills:

@crateslinger: That's mostly my strategy as well, outside a few tees I get at shows or art fairs. Occasionally, I'll give my wife $ to order me something online.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 1:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for today's programming, Meghan. See you at the theme park again next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:56pm northguineahills:

@Carmichael: I figured that. I was just hoping you were an automobile that everyone called Mike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:56pm northguineahills:

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:57pm βrian:

I may just order a few pair of broadfalls from Gohn Bros. It's been years. They're plain and they just work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/26/18 1:57pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/26/18 1:58pm crateslinger:

Thanks Meghan. I was here last week, and I'll be here next week! Thanks for the heads up, Brian!

We still have just a bit of snow on the ground. Going fast.
Avatar Thu. 4/26/18 1:58pm geezerette:

Meghan,Linda Lee;Brian: everyone I know is having this conversation. It's incredible the way these thugs have colonized our consciousness. It's not even possible to satyrize them,they're too malign and sinister,unless you want to go all Otto Dix on their asses. Stl,I'm actually afraid to ignore what's happening...want to do something but what?
Brian@1:54: I agree.

Meghan, have to liste later from the top. Thanks for show!
