A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 3/12/09 9:35am Ken:

Stingy D is on Phone One everybody! 800-989-9368. He's not a junkie at all!
  Thu. 3/12/09 9:39am Parq:

Hi D. Glad you made it.
  Thu. 3/12/09 9:41am Andy in Berlin:

Hey Ken, you should really record Trouble's laugh for Andy

Prizes up now: Dorothy Ashby CD and Sensacional Soul 2-CD set on Vami Soul.
  Thu. 3/12/09 9:51am Luciano:

Hello Trouble!
(nice! A great Kaleidoscope song... and a 1918 movie with Oliver Hardy...)
and hello Ken, too!
A pledge from Liguria, Italy :)
Thanks for making my afternoon at work quite better!
Ciao :)
  Thu. 3/12/09 9:52am Ken:

Thanks for your pledge Luciano!
  Thu. 3/12/09 9:53am trouble:

hey lil sis how about a $20 pledge? : representing the family and all...
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:00am Yan Dart:

I pledged and forgot to mention I'm a first timer. Wish I could've given more.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:03am lilsis:

My Pledge is made, I'll be awaiting my T Shirt
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:03am Vivian:

WMFU should have a bake sale, Trouble with her goods, Ken can offer Scotcharoos.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:03am Ike:

Wait, so Stingy is on phone #1, really really? He doesn't talk like he has 87 marbles in his mouth and his handwriting isn't like that of a drunken feral chicken with extra apostrophes? ;)
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:04am annie:

is that the star-bellied sneech who went through the star-on machine or the ORIGINAL star-belly sneech!??
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:04am Kenzo:

We need to install computers at the phone stations so that Stingy D can keep active in the comments!
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:10am Kevin from BayRidge:

Good morning all... it's the tough part of the morning again. Shutting down the 128k & going outside into the banality of S. Florida radio where NPR is the least offensive alternative...eeks... Diane Rehm!!! Be back in the FMU infested airwaves soon.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:11am Parq:

Kenzo, as an occasional phone slave myself, I'm totally down with that. Vivian, I was thinking the same thing only this morning. The bride and I are both ace bakers and would be glad to participate. What the hey, it works for every high school drama club in America.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:14am Freddy From West Orange Plumbin Supply:

Good morning Trouble and Ken, Love the show today
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:15am Ken:

Prizes up now: El Perro Del Mar and Marie Queenie CDs. Pledge!!
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:17am jon:

I love ya, Trouble! I got ya premium CD when I donated yesterday!
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:18am dc pat:

singy d is answering phones? nice.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:19am NS Andy:

Shame about that last song being unintended; it seemed to have lyrics that Ken might have understood...

I have already blown my bank with a couponsized contribution. wish I could do more.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:25am Cecile:

Stingy's on the phone?
Which one, so I can call up, breathe heavily, and hang up?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:26am postmanpaul:

salutations trouble&ken, aficionados and city slackers...just rolled up!
...and stingy d's joined the knitting circle, awesome!
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:26am elvie:

is anyone here going down to sxsw?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:28am dc pat:

oh, HERE we GO agAIN! Toilet seats!! JUST PUT IT DOWN, TROUBLE!!
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:29am Carmichael:

Ba-Woom! to Trouble, Ken and everyone who's anyone. Stingy's on #1? I should call and pledge under the name Scott Walker. He might spontaneously combust with happiness.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:29am dc pearly:

Holy Schmoley!
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:29am dei xhrist:

Put the seat down when you flush, or the miasma of waste will circulate up to inhalation level. If the toilet does not have a lid, well, just run.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:29am dale:

ken, can you do a pirate broadcast from the booze cruise? or a rowboat, even?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:30am dc pat:

Ah-HA--this doesn't concern the lid though. Trouble's issue is with just the seat, if I understand her..
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:31am annie:

who is gonna be dragged behind in the sea donkey?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:32am jaypee:

Wait, did Ken just say he's a Jewish terrorist who hates freedom?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:32am Cecile:

a self-hating Jewish frogman terrorist, jaypee
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:33am td:

did the windows stream just go out for anyone else?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:34am annie:

still got 128 here
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:35am jaypee:

Thanks for the clarification Cecile, I'm now alarmed yet titillated.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:36am Carmichael:

Still got 128. PICNIC error: Problem in Chair, Not in Computer.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:43am tomasz.:

YO! trouble. i can't listen live cuz i'm at work and they don't allow things like music or fun in the office. BUT i just set up a $180-over-a-year pledge and i'm feeling suitably jubilant. looking forward to the archived show later. love from crewe, england
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:44am Ken:

A self-hating Jewish frogman terrorist who hates Ikea, actually. Prizes up now: The Young Disciples and Ann Briggs CDs.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:46am Ken:

Stingy D still on phone 1: 800-989-9368
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:47am Cecile:

what's he wearing?

No reason...
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:48am Carmichael:

Put that KIng Khan CD back up for sale and I'll dial wrecklessly.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:50am Doug from DC:

Have you considered offering tote bags? Folks just love the tote bags.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:51am annie:

i got bawled out for donating 30 bucks!!!! fie! i say; it makes me want to donate more
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:52am Cecile:

I donated like $400. And they are still making me feel guilty. I might have to go over to Pandora.com...
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:52am Listener James from Westwood:

I've always wanted to visit Bobolink Dairy for the tempting-looking bread and cheese. Good to hear a positive shout-out on it.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:53am JoeSteele:

I avoided Hoboken like the plague. Places in Nutley weren't much different.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:54am Cecile:

did Tony Bourdain visit Bobolink Dairy on his New Jersey show, or am i thinking of someone else?
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:54am Parq:

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that a boatload of guys named Kevin are pledging this year?

-Parq (aka Kevin)
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:54am Kevincile:

no, haven't noticed anything, Parqvin.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:55am sugarwolf:

i still haven't been to bobolink dairy yet, even tho i live close enough to it
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:55am Carmichael:

Kevins and Dougs.
  Thu. 3/12/09 10:56am JoeSteele:

Hadn't noticed. Though I did notice a flurry of Nutley residents pledging for Sharpling.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:00am JoeSteele:

Of course, I noticed a flurry of EVERYONE pledging for Sharpling.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:01am PMD:

had to run away to meetings... what did I miss? Oh, that's right, I haven't pledged yet... will go do.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:02am Glenn L:

That was no flurry Joe, it was a blizzard!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:06am Pearly Sweets:

They all sound like delicious Dairy Queen items.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:09am Ken:

Prizes up now: Turntables on the Hudson 2-CD set, and Lights CD. Stingy is well dressed. A VERY nice zip-up hoody wweatshirt and a Stingy D T-shirt, VERY nice, non-acid washed jeans and on his feet, Doc-Marten-inspired Yves St Laurent boots.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:10am Carmichael:

Stylin' Stingy! America's Next Top Model!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:10am Bad Ronald:

It has been said he is a fashion thug.

Ken - Did you give Andy a hickey last night?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:11am Webhamster Henry:

"cleopatra in New York" is beautiful, but thanks to Ken, I keep hearing the words "Corn Weenie," even when they are not sung.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:14am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:16am Bad Ronald:

  Thu. 3/12/09 11:18am ?:

"Ken, did you give Andy a hickey last night?" sounds like one of those early 20th century songs you would hear on Mac's show. Cancha just see the phrase on one of those old-fashioned sheet music covers?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:19am PMD:

Ken, I LOVED when you started talking about how you appreciated Andy's gift right before you kissed him. That was the BEST.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:20am Ken:

No hickey. Just a closed mouth kiss on the lips. Andy was terrified when I took off my glasses before the kiss.

Stingy D has an incredible phone technique! You have to call just to hear how he rolls: 800-989-9368.

Stingy sounds like he's talking to a psycho right now.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:21am Carmichael:

This show is suddenly taking a LOGO direction.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:21am annie:

ken how many people have you told to go to hell so far?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:24am sugarwolf:

i think stingy took my pledge??
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:24am PMD:

annie, what I'm worried about is how many people have txted him. that costs money!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:25am Skeeter:

Can we talk about more manly things, like huntin' and spittin'? Or more womanly things from the gals, like puppies and dotting I's with a smiley face?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:26am PMD:

I'd pledge another $15 if trouble would say, fast, I took my car to the Warwick airport because I was late for my plane to Warsaw.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:28am Parakeet:

Where's my gift, you jerk?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:28am PMD:

Skeeter, since my moniker is androgynous, shall I say I spit on my little puppy?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:30am The Man:

Ah screw you guys.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:35am annie:

did bryce remove the offending apostrophe?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:36am Pearly Sweets:

I doubt it. He might have even added more.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:37am hehe,:

i was just thinking of bribing with a donation to remove it....
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:38am Parq:

My wife is eating chocolate while I watch the game on the tube. There, Skeeter, happy?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:39am Ken:

Two GREAT prizes up right now, Steinski's 2-CD retrospective and the latest CD from Juana Molina.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:39am annie:

does she want coffee with that parq?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:40am Elias:

Might this former orphan be the squeaky chair? I'd be proud of my adoption no matter what of course

  Thu. 3/12/09 11:42am Peter:

Would like to hear Bogey vs Corn Weenie!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:42am Parq:

Of course not, Annie, Diet Coke.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:43am Freddy From West Orange Plumbing Supply:

I'd like to hear a Corn Weenie remix with a beat like that.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:43am Cecile:

Bogie vs Corn Weenie vs Inaugural Poem
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:44am Skeeter:

Dang Parq, betcha you live in the swankiest trailer park around. Mind if I ride my 2-stroke over and we drink us some beers with our left hands in our pockets?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:47am worst freakin' mess undeleted:

Why foster musical uniformity? Wake family members upstairs! Whistle for moneyed uncles! Weenies, finally measure up! What, feeling mentally unbalanced? Worries freshening moolah uncertainties? Welcome feverish mojo uplift! Warning: failure means unhappiness. Winning furthers Mayberry's undoing. Work for marathon unity -- we'll frighten mediocrity's ushers while feeling magically upbeat! When freeform madness uncoils, wait for meaning until wish fulfillment motivates users. Will financial mysteries unlock? Who'll frisk my undies? (Whispering fear masks ugliness.) Wonderful flavors mark us, wide frontiers mold unbelievers; with fiery momentum uninhibited, wild frantic mania unleashed, warm fertile moments unfold, wives forget marital upsets. Wallahs figdet, mullahs utter, wizards fly, mensches unclutter without feeling morose underneath. Wring fiscally milky udders, wash filthy Mormon Utah, whip fanaticism more urgently -- whatever floats Mammon's utility. Wilma Flintstone mostly understands.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:48am Parq:

And Ken, don't track mud on Trouble's nice clean floor.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:49am GrapeJelly Cat:

Will DJ Bob be co-hosting with anybody today? I sure do-hope-so-guys-so-much!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:49am Cecile:

I have found out a lot of good music on Pandora, but you have to really aggressively mess with its programming with weird song suggestions.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:50am tomasz.:

i still say it's no last.fm
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:51am Parq:

Ceclie, you doll, way to up the ante!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:52am Pearly Sweets:

You would think on satellite radio that they would have at least one free form channel on their 150 channels... but, nope. Instead you can set your clock to it just like "regular radio".
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:52am Carmichael:

Pandora really pisses me off. The assumptions they make on my musical tastes require lots of hands-on screwin' around with the like/don't like functionality.

And they don't yet have any corn weenie mixes.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:53am Cecile:

Me, too, Carm, but I love the fact I can find some great house/beat/techno stuff I wouldn't normally be able to find. That's a great resource for that. i have like 8-10 different stations.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:53am Carmichael:

Is this Will Smith?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:53am Cecile:

  Thu. 3/12/09 11:53am Pearly Sweets:

I was saying just the other day if I could port WFMU into my car like Sirius, I'd be more than willing to pay the same amount for just the one station.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:54am PMD:

Pearly Sweets, I think I would too...
FMU needs to raise money to launch its own satellite!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:55am Hugo:

I once wrote a report which I called "Looking for Trouble".
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:55am Pearly Sweets:

Maybe next year's fundraiser?!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:56am JoeSteele:

Screw the booster tower. Raise money to launch a satilite!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:57am fishmonkeystey:

More moola will be forthcoming.

Don't let FMU die!

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:57am Cecile:

I'm an "it". Or a shim. Or a hher
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:58am Pearly Sweets:

Did Ken just say "making fart"?
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:59am Marshall Stacks:

I think WFMU used to have a satellite feed, pre-Sirius and -XM, which properly-equipped listeners could receive. Though that wasn't the purpose.
Anyway, I think it's gone now.
  Thu. 3/12/09 11:59am Cecile:

YAY, Stingy and the phone crue!
