I don't understand why we aren't all sitting around in a huge back yard on Sunday afternoon of Memorial Day in 75 degree weather.

It must feel adventurous to do a late night show. What with the mist and the darkness and all.

One of my top-5 favorite non-musical aspects of the Frow Show is seeing Jesse's sunrise tweets.

Laidback acoustic guitar stuff, just instrumental, slightly mathematical at times, might be perfect for those of you up late...

This is Awesome. That is all.

evening all, from the antipodes. i've always meant to consult about finding this show phonetically challenging... given the pronunciation of "Show" and "Jarnow", why isn't "Frow" pronounced "froh"... ?

waiting for Radio Tirana to chime in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30am

there's a long answer & a short answer. the short answer is that it's an inside joke gone amiss. the medium version is that the spelling originates from a threatening note slipped under the door of my high school radio station with the word "fro" spelled "frow," in reference to my then-becoming-long-hair. it remained a joke for a few more weeks until my friend wrote/recorded the theme on his four track. ever since then, i couldn't not use it. only after about 10 years of using it thru a college station, a pirate station, a podcast, & WFMU did i realize that a.) anybody was listening & b.) it was really, really confusing.
Avatar 5:35am

That answers that question I've also wondered about for... years. When did you switch from just podcast to WFMU, btw? I have strong memories of 2007 being pre-WFMU (don't ask) but other than that my mind is a hairy mess of drones and psychedelia and reverb.
Avatar 5:35am
fred von helsing:

A pirate station? Do tell. Radio New York International ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am

ha, the podcast was 2005-2008, i think, and i started here that august. the pirate station (2000ish?) was hardly illustrious. my friend built it in his living room & broadcast out of the attic for 8 months or so until the FCC showed up.
Avatar 5:39am

thanks, an answer of Garcia-like proportions! you should have cut it off half way and kept us hanging on for the final instalment next week!

fred von helsing:

Ya got busted by the Feds? Nice! :) I'd always read that people (in NYC) were doing crazy shit like turning antenna amps around so they could broadcast VCR movies to the neighborhood. But real pirate radio and a real bust, that's street cred :) Do you know what kind of tech they used? Was it a Python-approved Cat Detector Van?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am

can't remember the details. it was in the rural midwest, though. i'll ask my friend when i see him in a few months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am

by the way, this is the 200th episode of the frow show on WFMU. i meant to do some kind of anniversary thingee, but i completely forgot. this reminiscing will have to do.
