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.

You guys are going to totally kill my productivity today. Bring on the puppets!
  Tue. 2/21/12 9:46am Nathan:

So who is playing the 80s Post-Punk Cuckatoo and who is playing the Bejewelled Cat Thing?
  Tue. 2/21/12 9:50am Cheri Pi:

Ken-you should have a Puppetry of the Penis display on your show.
  Tue. 2/21/12 9:53am Vivian:

Good morning! Just arrived for the hijinks. Wow Trouble, that is a huge image on your playlist. Is that your desk at home?
  Tue. 2/21/12 9:53am Caryn:

In the pre-TV era, they'd occasionally have ventriloquists on the radio. I suspect some ventriloquists slacked off when they knew they could not be seen... (Of course, on the shows with live studio audiences, they still had to bring it.)

Cheri Pi, what an excellent idea!!

Holy crap, Skirkie! The most we pay down here is $3. Robbery.
  Tue. 2/21/12 10:18am Skirkie:

Well the machine charged $3 then MY bank charges another $2 for using another machine. I then took the money and bought expensive coffee.
  Tue. 2/21/12 10:20am dc pat:

  Tue. 2/21/12 10:33am dobbs:

Can WFMU use Kickstarter in any way? There's a webcomic publishing project that had a $58K goal and just went over a million bucks. Is there any way that funding model can be applied to the station's needs?
  Tue. 2/21/12 10:34am MD:

Man Ray...eat your heat out!!!!
  Tue. 2/21/12 10:34am joe:

HA I thought the black around the edges of the screen was just because of video ratio until I saw the birds feathers go over it.
  Tue. 2/21/12 10:34am MD:

That' right I said heat!!!
  Tue. 2/21/12 10:35am Skirkie:
