It could be worse… Someone could be popping an Ambient and talking about the [insert race/ethnic/religious group here].

Flimsy plastic sleeves were The FUTURE!!
  Wed. 5/30/18 9:33pm Julie M:

I looked it up. It was December 1969, but I think released in 1970.
  Wed. 5/30/18 9:34pm Julie M:

Ma Belle Amie, that is...

' Scuse me for not scrolling. Duh!
  Wed. 5/30/18 9:41pm Julie M:

Thanks for playing that one, Evan. It's always nice to have a song resurface in your mind, but often you need a DJ to push it to the surface for you!
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 9:45pm efd:

you're welcome Julie! That's one of the fun things about doing this, seeing people react like that.
  Wed. 5/30/18 9:48pm Julie M:

Keep pushin' 'em, efd.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 9:56pm Jeff Moore:

Everybody happy with the state of the streams? We did a big network change at the station and had some initial teething problems, but I believe all is now well. Do y'all concur?
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:01pm efd:

maybe they can't hear you Jeff
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:01pm Jeff Moore:

(BTW, speaking of streams - the newest version of our iOS app - WFMU Radio version 5.1.2 - should be generally available in the App Store. Somewhere in there it offers you the ability to choose the stereo AAC stream, which I recommend for sonic goodness, instead of the old stereo MP3 stream. Oh, and see on this page where it says "128k AAC"? I recommend that for people who use standalone players like VLC or iTunes or suchlike.)

That is all. Enjoy the tunes.
  Wed. 5/30/18 10:03pm Julie M:

Streaming like a dream, Jeff. Thanks.

Ma Belle Ami charted in the Netherlands in '69 and in the U.S. in "70.
  Wed. 5/30/18 10:05pm Stevel:

Speak up, Jeff!

Working well on the app.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:06pm Jeff Moore:

Tap.. tap.. tap...
  Wed. 5/30/18 10:06pm Stevel:

My app is the recent update.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:07pm Jeff Moore:

I don't think the app automatically changes you to the AAC stream (although I argued for that); but it should now show up as an option.
  Wed. 5/30/18 10:13pm Hugh:

Concur w Jeff. Never had big stream probs since the 70s. (You know what I mean.) Have the sads since no Mets fans or even a scolding not to do that here.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:18pm efd:

hey Hugh, if you want to post your contact info for people to get in touch with you directly go ahead, but it's strictly between you and whoever contacts you.
  Wed. 5/30/18 10:23pm Hugh:

Thanks Evan but no Mets or Cubs fans (in town) who listen to your show are interested. We'll give em away at the gate. Anyway, love your show! I stream it! Seriously, thanks for the MUSIC!

One of Donut Manager Ken's specialities is a marching band rendition of "White Punks on Dope."
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:33pm efd:

Douglas, that was pretty much my exact reaction the first time I heard that E6 cover of "Dirty Laundry"
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:45pm herb.nyc:

Evan, you smell great and you are brilliant. Oh, perfume genius is the middle band at Forest Hills.

here's some more Prairie Prince drumming!
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 9:15am Barkevious Shabazz:

The Tubes "Don't Touch Me There", while kind of a joke song, is so great, and the production so reminiscent of early 70's Roxy, it needs to get far more recognition that it does, which is none.
