So crazy that Herrmann's career began with Citizen Kane and ended with Taxi Driver. Scorsese said the last time he talked to him he was in the middle of editing TD, and Herrmann suggested to play that final horn sting backwards.

We love you, Fabio!! I, for one, recognized that music. I think it is one of the best movies ever made.
  3:21pm Listener Robert:

The "tote board" is very good news. I'm assuming (someone can correct me if I'm wrong) that the "rollbacks" that occurred in the previous 2-3 spring marathons were corrections to double counting of pledges stemming from the volunteer phone room operation, and so since there's only limited phone room operation this year, rollbacks will probably not occur, meaning the tote board we see is accurate, albeit running a little behind, so on average at any given time there's a slight UNDERcount.

At the rate incoming pledges have been reported so far, Auricle is in that enviable situation Maximum Leader Ken has occasionally mentioned in the past, whereby they might wind up with EXTRA that could be spent on projects. I've been joking in these comments about using it to purchase WSHU and/or WFUV, but possibly Ken can inform us of some serious things that could get done with a surplus.

@Listener Robert some rollback may be people who pledge and say bill me later and maybe aren't able to come though with the cash
  3:28pm Miss G:

So glad I picked this premium for my Swag 4 Life! I upped it this time as I gave up my indulgence of fancy lattes this year. Now my nose is less stuffy from all that milk and my mind is expanded by more music! Thanks WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm eºIºk:

@LR, ha ha, buying WSHU is a hilarious dream, I love it. There's already multiple NPR stations in CT anyway, it's not like they need them! Let's just sneak into Sacred Heart U. and *steal* the station, nyuk nyuk.
  3:28pm Holly T:

Hey, Fabio, hey Dave!
  3:28pm Listener Robert:

Thanks, Dave. Ken has explained that there had been miscalculations having to do with accounting for SFL, but that that problem has been surmounted.

Some "rain makers" on the schedule have yet to come up (I'm thinking of Yo La Tengo), but even a conservative projection that doesn't take that into account says this marathon will be looking at a stretch goal like last October's.
  3:30pm Listener Robert:

eoIok, do you get the joke, though? Revenge for what they put WFMU thru ~30 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Scrappy:

All- if you ever get a chance to see Music For enophiles in NYC, it is one of my favorite music events... the band plays only material from the 4 non-ambient Eno albums and they are glorious and a huge inspiration.
  3:45pm Smog on the Tyne:

I always appreciated and enjoyed WFMU ever since I heard it mentioned by BBC DJ Stuart Maconie years ago but these Covid times have made it a real lifeline to all that’s good about life and has really helped keep me afloat. Thanks so much Fabio and everyone involved with the show, I’ve just pledged and it is a pleasure to do so.🌈
  3:47pm David in London:

1993, I go to lunch with my new boss and standing in the queue in the shop in Kilburn, Brian Eno walks past. He looks over and says ‘Hi Eileen’. I look at her in amazement. “How the **** do you know Brian Eno?!” Turns out they were next door neighbours.
  3:47pm Miss G:

@ tim - I have an opposite story for you. Early on, Pelt and Un played a gig at DC's Club Soda, which rarely put on shows. Since this was the indie rock era, no one drank. AT ALL. This was extremely distressing to the owner, who ended up begging the audience to order something, anything!

Rublev is Incredible!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm B R M:

New restoration of MIRROR this year... such an incredible movie! @Krull Sagan, yes, Alex Ross (their great music writer) wrote a fantastic piece on Tarkovsky, which was so appreciated.

  5:04pm Miss G:

Oh, thank you Krull Sagan for the NYer, I don't always check them these days. (yes carrots Stalker is one of the best films ever made, but I just learned of the toxic stuff! YIKES) KS I have to say, I saw it because a friend gave me the Criterion Channel. But, I think it might be on YT.

@Carrots - Andrei Rublev is one of my favorite movies of all time... so great!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm The Oscar:

Been busy working, but I just want to chime in that I have an old DVD-R of a couple of the Irritainment specials that I got at Kim's back in college (long before I listened to WFMU!). I have probably shown it to everyone who has set foot in my apartment more than once in the past 15 years.
  5:07pm Mary in BK:

Hey stephaniepc! It sure is beautiful there. I am not sure if it was on a corner--it was quite awhile ago in the early 90s. It might have been a Lions Club or something but it was really cool and fun. My best friend lives in Asoten, WA, and I was visiting her.

I agree with the other listener, one of my favorite shows but Old Codger is a close second.

Indeed, TDK60! Went to Kings Co. Hospital in Flatbush. As far as I've traveled by subway in many and many a month!

Hey, Krull!

Dave Mandl, I'm hoping that this means we're all one step closer to another Elgin Marbles show at Troost, inshallah.

Handy we missed you but I had no idea you were on the jab! Best wishes to you!

Ha, Ken. Well, it was on-time-ish, at least. It was honestly overwhelming. I had not been around *normal, wonderful Brooklyn crowds* in so long or walked around in other parts of Brooklyn or just *been freaking in the world*. And then getting the shot was just ... I dunno, I was on the verge of tears. It was a lot. I was glad to be there. And glad to have come home to you fine people and these sounds. Really glad to be here.
