I'm very excited for a bunch of Spike Jones.

Wow - love the eight track picture :-)

Spike Jones on 8=track. VERY Spike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

How old is that?
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:04pm Don-O:

I'm thinking on a second Spike show that goes deeper into his catalog.

Yes please! :-)

Hi Don-O!
Hi Hopey!
Hi DJ GeorgyGirl! Lovely show today!
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:05pm Don-O:

HEY, RICH!....and everybody else as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:05pm Linda Lee:

truly amazing right off the bat. :-)
Julie Driscoll made me late.

Thank you, Rich! :-)

I don't know if anybody else has noticed this but my Marathon banner has only 1%. Am I a curse around here?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That sounds like an autobiography title - "Julie Driscoll Made Me Late" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:07pm Linda Lee:

wouldn't that be fine! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't understand what the percentages mean ... they freak me out a little, if I'm honest :-(
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:09pm Don-O:

This show is more of a 'Greatest Hits' and the other one will be futher down a rabbit hole. See what happens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:09pm Linda Lee:

supposedly each show has a goal to reach ~ who knows where that comes from ~ & the banner shows the percentage of the goal reached.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Spike Jones takes me to a very happy childhood sanctuary :-)
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:10pm Don-O:

DJGG, I suspect that means 'pressure' on everybody. The station is from New Jersey. They are pretty tough about this like this I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:10pm Linda Lee:

i wish to be unimaginably wealthy & flood Sheena's with cash. just flood it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm not very good at it :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:11pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Ooooo, this is a fave :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Maybe I should do a Bob Geldof? "GIVE US YER FUCKIN' MONEY!" lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:12pm Linda Lee:

unfortunately Sheena's is a pretty exclusive club ~ & then, apparently only 1 in 10 listeners actually contributes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:13pm Linda Lee:

i'm not sure what you can do about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:14pm Linda Lee:

1 in 10! so the station has made it policy to attract new listeners, rather than get more out of the existing pool.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:14pm Don-O:

Any Homer & Jethro fans out there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:16pm Linda Lee:

just found out where Itchy & Scratchy on the Simpsons came from! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda - thank you for the link! :-)
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:19pm Don-O:

Oh, DJGG! Thanks again for the Mellow Magic For The 70's copy! I'm still surviving from the move and can't digitize ANYthing. The version of 'Dreams' will be used in a show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Excellent! I'm so glad I could help :-) If there's anything else you need, let me know :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:20pm Linda Lee:

i don't think october's the best time for a marathon, myself. christmas on the way & all that pressure to spend beyond our means, when we're already squeezed! march is much better. i hope to be much more flush by then myself! wink!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

March went really well. And yeah ... Christmas on the horizon really makes things difficult financially.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:22pm Linda Lee:

i guess this is when the bills come in for the last quarter..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:22pm Linda Lee:

but it's not a good time.

That was ME Don-O! Thanks for playing Pal-Yat-Chee!
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:23pm Mr Fab:

Spacebrother Greg told me that Doodles Weaver is related to Sigourney Weaver somehow. Like he's her uncle or sumthin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm Rich in Washington:

I remember first hearing that on The National Lampoon Radio Hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Doodles Weaver is a FABULOUS name :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Mr. Fab, for real?? That's amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm Linda Lee:

yes, he's her uncle!
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm Don-O:

Yo, Fabulous Fearless Leader!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love Powerhouse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:24pm Rich in Washington:

I think Homer and Jethro did other songs as part of the City Slickers, but I am not sure which ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:25pm Rich in Washington:

Hi Linda Lee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:25pm Linda Lee:

hey Rich! :-)
  Fri. 10/18/19 6:26pm River:

On the subject of Xmas, I wonder to what extent fundraising can be combined with WFMU evangelism. I know I tell everyone about the station but WFMU related gifts/gift sponsorships could be a good idea.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:26pm Don-O:

There should be a Doodles Weaver Boulevard!
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:26pm Don-O:

....or Doodles Drive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:26pm Linda Lee:

or even a development! Doodles Weaver Acres!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@River - that's a brilliant idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:27pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I wish there was a Sheena's t-shirt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:27pm Linda Lee:

'Chip & I just made our first down payment on a condo in the Doodles Weaver Community & we're *so* excited!'
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:27pm Mr Fab:

This has been the most powerful Powerhouse in my book for quite some time. and there are a lot of Powerhouses out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I picture the Doodles Weaver Community along the lines of Knots Landing ;-) But I *may* be biased :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:29pm Linda Lee:

i'd like to see a Sheena's Jungle Room t shirt with the name on a matchbook next to an ashtray & a cocktail glass. or maybe on a coaster..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:29pm Linda Lee:

why Knots Landing, GG?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I found the real Knots Landing on Google Maps and spent an hour happily gazing at the houses ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:29pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Linda, YES. That would be fabulous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:30pm Linda Lee:

don'tcha think? :-)
done in a pulp style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love Knots Landing. Obsessively so. lol
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:30pm Mr Fab:

Interesting idea, River. I guess anyone could pledge, get a premium, and gift it to someone for xmas. But you mean like if WFMU had a whole store, kind of our own Amazon type thing that people could buy gifts from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We did have a discussion about both a Sheena t-shirt and a coaster back in March :-)
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:31pm Don-O:

As great as 'Spike Jones Is Murdering The Classics' album is, I wish they did a BETTER job of mastering the damned thing. All that echo and 'stereopying' really destroys an otherwise a great album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:32pm Linda Lee:

really! a regular coaster! very cool.
i was seeing the coaster on the shirt, next to the ashtray & the cigarette lighter. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Maybe we could do a post along those lines? "Stumped for a Christmas present for a loved one? Why not pledge now and gift them a t-shirt or a premium CD?"
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:32pm Mr Fab:

There IS a coaster, which you can get, but the company that made it kind of screwed it up. I'm not real happy with it. But hey, maybe if you stick a drink on it, it won't really matter, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I did a design for a Dave t-shirt which would be cool. I'm may have to budget for that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:34pm Linda Lee:

people do seem to dig schwag, unfortunately. i tell the station to keep the money!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:34pm Linda Lee:

at least there's print on demand!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:35pm Linda Lee:

they don't wind up purchasing shwag that isn't distributed. it's all print on demand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:35pm Linda Lee:

at least i hope so! :-O
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 10/18/19 6:36pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

swinging in! howdy, all!!!
  Fri. 10/18/19 6:36pm River:

@Mr Fab: Something like that maybe, yeah. I love that WFMU is supported primarily by donations, but there's potentially an opportunity to grow the station's listenership by making it easy for people to gift merch which might say 'tune in to WFMU for more like this' (eg).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:36pm Linda Lee:

hey Granny! :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:39pm Linda Lee:

the coaster doesn't say Sheena's Jungle Room on it? that's too bad!

Hi, LL, GG and any other alliterative names, plus those with other kinds of names. I have lots of these Spike Jones tunes on 78 and often played them at my monthly victrola gig. Unparalleled goofiness!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:40pm Linda Lee:

the station did make those big investments in billboards ~ somewhat successfully. it's really been about attracting new listener. the drive-time morning show is part of that strategy. it's very normal.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:41pm Don-O:

Good Hello, Granny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:41pm Linda Lee:

attracting new listenerS, plural. we hope.
  Fri. 10/18/19 6:41pm River:

It's pretty awful to say it, and I'm sure it's not an original thought, but if WFMU needs to diversify its income streams in order to be financially sustainable, it should.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/19 6:42pm Mr Fab:

Actually, I believe the coaster does have the channel name, but it also has these annoying lines around it that weren't supposed to be printed. Not sure why the picture on the premium page doesn't show it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:42pm Linda Lee:

that looks like a tough graphic to print nicely, as well. not a lot of contrast.
  Fri. 10/18/19 6:43pm River:

Hey Rich! Good evening from London.

Sheena just seems to have a relatively small part of the listener pie, so far ~ despite her shape in a leopard-skin swimsuit.

Hello fellow crap listeners
  Fri. 10/18/19 6:55pm Hopey Appmonkey:

Do the other streams have more listeners?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My music teacher at school was in a production of Carmen with the English National Opera and we got to do a school trip to see it. It was amazing!!! :-)

i go by who shows up on the board. not a scientific methodology, for sure..

The main WFMU stream surely does.

We don't have any listener stats across the board. Which is a good way of preserving our sanity ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/18/19 6:56pm Linda Lee:

the first time i heard that only 1 in 10 FMU listener contributes to the station, i was appalled. that is really unfortunate.
