I wanna shake my tail feather 🪶
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:10am dale:

does the tail get stuffed INSIDE the slacks, or is their a hole for the tail in your apparel?
Avatar 7:13am Lixiviated Life:

What is a “furry” anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16am radioronan:

Who can see their ducktails much less mess with them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18am Amanda:

Come to think of it, having duck tails and pigtails are a way for humans to quell their tail envy a bit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19am Amanda:

And a tie and tails
Avatar 7:27am HyperDose:

Goood morning animal enthusiasts! Welcome back, Amanda. Jim was very well-behaved while you were gone.
  7:28am dano59:

Aka the D.A.(s)
  7:29am marcel:

What’s a ducktail (apart from the self-explanatory definition)? Did he mean that beard style Google is telling me about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30am scribble:

I was commissioned to paint a portrait of a stuffed animal once. The couple were Very into their stuffed animal. When I jokingly mentioned this new subculture that I had just heard of (it was the early 2000s) they kind of looked at each other in a knowing way and I realized I had just put my foot in it.
  7:31am Bobobobob:

you just had a birthday.......🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎉🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊
Avatar 7:32am TDK60:

Good Risings.
  7:33am dano59:

Some folks are just not ready to know of the furry lifestyle, @scribbles
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33am Amanda:

@marcel, a ducktail is the little nub in the back of a man's rockabilly hairstyle. And yes Bobobobob, I recently had a birthday :-)
  7:33am marcel:

That poor stuffed animal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35am scribble:

They were really sweet. I felt bad for laughing at the idea. To each their own
  7:35am dano59:

The Genus adult comics in the mid-90s kind of catered to that - anthropomorphic animals

  7:45am dano59:

The show always has me making lists in my head:
Better off as a pet?
If I Was Your Cat - Romeo Void
3 Songs that seem to be about people but aren’t:
Man of the Hour - Norah Jones
Missing cats:
Man From Mars - Joni Mitchell
Murder or a Heart Attack - Old 97’s
Saddest song about a dog:
Queen - In Congress
  7:45am mr 6:

I always tried to include my dogs tail wagging in his video. My saying was
It’s all about the tail wag

  7:49am dano59:

I miss the whole era when goofy records proliferated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49am Amanda:

Just putting out there that I would be absolutely honored to DJ a furry night. No irony intended in this statement. Though I think I'd have some serious record shopping to do to make it a good set!
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:51am Jim the Poet:

I would definitely dance at furry night
  7:52am Morgan:

Amanda it looks like so much fun
  7:52am Morgan:

Jim they would love you both i think
Avatar 7:54am HyperDose:

I don't know how my cat would handle a rave
  7:57am Morgan:

a cat digeridoo
  7:58am Listener Robert:

I love Jim's effect of cutout balloons.

Most Friday nights I tell myself I should go to be early to get up in time for this, and I don't. Instead I get up to go to the bathroom shortly before 6, turn on the radio softly, and go back to sleep. I know I'm not likely to ever listen to the archive of Bad Animals, because there are SO MANY programs on WFMU I like by now that I have to restrain myself from trying to listen to many archives; I need SOME silence when I'm not listening live.
  7:58am dano59:

The Sherwoods were a Norton family fave as well. And Rex curated a bonus 7” EP of chicken songs with a vinyl comp he did…
  8:01am Listener Robert:

The happening at the station I'm most anticipating is when Field Marshal Ken declares the pandemic over for purposes of the Montgomery St. HQ. If we wait for official authorities in this country to say so, this pandemic will NEVER be declared over, unlike in Denmark recently.
Avatar 8:02am TDK60:

Yeah, Bodega Pop with Gary S. is a great show. Deep dive into subjects.
  8:03am Morgan:

Amanda are you not going to mention that we almost lost you
  8:03am Listener Robert:

Like the war tax on telephone service that I think is still in effect from I forgot which war.
  8:04am dano59:

Do you guys draw the line at songs about food animals? There’s so many…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05am Amanda:

@dano59 Pretty much anything is game - we are not above forcing an animal correlation if one is not readily apparent!
  8:07am Listener Robert:

How about the entire oeuvre of The Animals?
  8:07am dano59:

@Amanda - Rt Cooper’s Crow Black Chicken prompted that question. Chicken is practically a genre given American music’s Southern cultural roots
  8:08am dano59:

Ry Cooder - %#£!!?! autocorrect
