@Matt Fiveash: I've asked the conductor to toss you off in Spuyton Dullesville
  7:17pm Gary:

Wow. Slim Harpo on 60s AM radio
  7:20pm Lothianman:

Gotta check if lottie ties to june ya
  7:23pm Lothianman:

DTS you and Jack Webb have to be joined at the hip
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Will the Sound Guy:

@Dale what station are you receiving? I get WMNR from Connecticut on 90.1...
WMFU some of the time.
  7:29pm Horse Hockey:

Purchased the Excello 7" Slim Harpo track after hearing it on Ron Lundy's WABC NYC broadcast. At age 14 this did not appear significant musically.
At this moment in time, 2022, BABY SCRATCH MY BACK purchase was likely unusual for an Italo-Amerian adolescent.
Avatar 7:31pm HyperDose:

This is outstanding
  7:35pm Lothianman:

Keep on a knockin Smiley Lewis! Even if you can't come in
  7:38pm Lothianman:

Fantastic James Brown cut !
  7:39pm Hudson Valley:

Is Ken putting the 10K on his credit card for the 90.1 transmitter?? I can’t live without these blues!
  7:41pm Horse Hockey:

Brother David- Grazie for curating for Broadcaster Ashestoashes. Stellar historical content.
Avatar 7:42pm Kitschy Mama:

Fuzzy wuzzy! This mus be a 78!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm dale:

will - i'm getting the ount hope transitter on 90.1. when that goes out i get bleed from wvkr. can't believe you get ct that close to mt hope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm dale:

...but i get whvw 950 am from hyde park (j. p. ferraro's station) when i'm at bear mountain sttete park really clear. must be the signal travels down the river without obstacles
  7:45pm Hudson Valley:

@ dale yeah, hope is our only hope!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm G:

"Down to the crossroads" is almost as common a blues lyric element as "woke up this morning," or "down in New Orleans."
Avatar 7:48pm PuraVida:

Made the last set, nice...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Will the Sound Guy:

I put a small 200 ca-ching in the donation pot...

I don't know if this is sanctioned, but...

We need a transmitterthon!

The station needs 10k to bring Mt Hope 90.1 and Rockland County 91.9 back up and operating at 100%

I guess one needs a tube for the transmitter, the other one is almost totally fried and needs to be replaced
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Will the Sound Guy:

Dale, I'm near Chester, NY.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm dale:

90.1 is one of the stronger signals around here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm dale:

will - i get wjff great driving in chester. can't really get it in middletown.
  7:51pm Lothianman:

Time for scrapper to hit the a blues !
  7:51pm Hudson Valley:

@ will the sound guy I’m scared they’re phasing out the radio! Will WFMU be a streaming only service? Time will only tell - hang in on the FM static fumes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Will the Sound Guy:

I believe a strong lighting blast may have gotten the Transmitter... I don't know for sure, but there was a nasty strong storm.. then sunday morning I couldn't hear Carol or Jeff Sarge...
  7:55pm Hudson Valley:

Damn, electricity is mysterious
  7:55pm Lothianman:

OK guess no Earl Hooker tonight but I tried my best to neha
Avatar 7:56pm Kitschy Mama:

O my, great selection Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm dale:

man, i wish i was sinnin' right now.
  7:57pm mmdd:

I dont get it near Newburgh where I live but I was driving through Pine Bush on Tuesday and I heard WFMU perfectly. Maybe it’s because of the UFOs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm dale:

went to the ufo festival a few years back and ran into soeone wearing the smefmu tee as i had on. we guffawed for a minute and then parted ways.
  7:58pm Hudson Valley:

@ mmdd yeah there’s some serious FM gremlins out there - my summer is FULL blues nowadays

Avatar 8:00pm HyperDose:

Thanks Spazz!
  8:00pm dday:

@Will & dale: I don't know how much either of you know about how radio waves travel, but simplified, AM signals follow the contours of the earth & as such can travel long distances pretty easily. As a kid in Bergen Co., NJ, I had this little record player with an AM radio & used to listen to hockey & basketball games from as far away as Chicago easily. FM on the other hand travels by "line of sight" transmission so if you are say up on mountain & in a relatively unobstructed line of sight to the transmitter you get good signal, if not then you don't.

Ken said today the parts needed to repair the transmitter came in today & the transmitter hopefully will be up by the end of the week. A storm took out the final stage card(s).

Most new transmitters are digital & cards are usually hot swapable, meaning the transmitter doesn't need to be shut down to remove or install cards.

Several other stations in the area had damage to either transmitters or their associated internet input feeds (Spectrum was one of them).

Cross your fingers :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Will the Sound Guy:

Thank you dday for that info....
Thank you Dave the Spazz for your Fill-in show!!!
  8:06pm dday:

My pleasure Will. I never know what people may or may not know but my training was in electronics repair back in 79/80 so we were actually the last DeVry Tech NJ class to study vacuum tube theory, along with TV , Radio & Microwave transmission.
  8:12pm dday:

@Hudson Valley: Not sure on this but I don't think the station can go all streaming & keep their non profit non-commercial educational status. FCC requires even commercial antenna TV signals to still be broadcast over the air as many areas in the US still don't have internet service (unbelievable but true). Equal Access laws apply
  8:24pm dday:

I should say "may apply" as I'm not sure if FM signals are covered under the law
