We've heard Yo La Tengo cover NRBQ before and in my opinion? They make NRBQ songs sound better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am Ike:

Van, a few more details on the history of it: No free-form DJs wanted those morning slots in the early 80s (lazy hippie bastards?!) as far as I can figure. So a Jewish Orthodox show grabbed that radio real estate and has held it since. FMU might not have survived without their fundraising prowess. Until Scharpling, they made the most $$. The streams are separate because there is virtually no crossover audience (they don't play much klezmer unfortunately -- I'd listen if they did).

Keeping close to my desk so as to miss as little as possible. Amazing how long they've been doing this, and yet each year yields a whole set of familiar songs with no repeats. And Miss Faye, the GIF is brilliant.

@Ike: thanks, I figure Tony & Stork probably share the honor of gateway for me. It was 1997 and there was this sacred list circulating from someone at MIT, of "webcasting radio" which was quite a wacky thing at the time...
