only 6k away from 90% of the station goal. that can happen this afternoon! then it's just the final countdown to 100%...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 1:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think one of the lyrics during Billy Jam's show last night mentioned Fool's Paradise. No mention of fur-lined fallout shelters, though.

Nothing short of alien invasion could clean out the hipster infestation on Bedford Ave.
I for one welcome our new little green overlords!

@JJJ- Agreed. I look forward to toiling in their underground sugar caves :)

Could almost do a Chuck Berry impression to that last Timmie rogers number: "Drivin' along in my UFO ship, my baby beside me givin' me lip..."
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 1:32pm Dervish:

$5,000 in pledges and the station gets to 90% of the goal!

Diddy Bop was a street slang term that we used to say when we was teenagers back in the early 1960's.

My dear mother in North Dakota has a lot of LPs and some 45s. The next time I'm out there, I should bring back a list of them and see if the station would like any of them.

I see the friendship society color is green today. Little green men green. Nice touch.

Too sick to go to St. Patrick's Day parade so I am staying home and donating to WFMU while listening to Rex.

MacArthur Genius grant NOW!
Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 2:13pm Juke Joint Jonny:

F.Y.I. Rex, the Ford Foundation DOES contribute to the program, passively, through their matching funds donation program. It's the wonder of non-profit slush funds!
Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 2:13pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Wait, the "Horror of Party Beach" Del-Aires were from Paterson?! That just made my day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 2:17pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Oh man, I already picked my swag and cashed out, and now I see this. WFMU, land of constant desire.

Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and Ernie K-Doe: offbeat.com...
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:29pm G:

Page and Plant were quietly negotiating a settlement for appropriating and monetizing the musical genres of Ernie's grandparents' generation.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:30pm G:

When the lawsuit breaks, ya got no place ta stay...
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:34pm G:

less than 1k now from the station's 90% mark. can it happen before 3PM? three mouse pledges would do it...
Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 2:36pm Tony in Durham NC:

I know this is about Ernie K-Doe, but has anyone heard from The Black Pope this week? Just askin'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 2:37pm Uncle Michael:

Rex drops drops from the only Shelley Pope check I've heard *other* than the one everyone knows.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:38pm Droll:

G, Ahhh, the good 'ol days when you had to learn to play the music you wanted to steal... Now YouTube is the only one left monetizing appropriated music.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:43pm G:

Black Pope is pissed at this new Frances pussy with the girl's name. He's gonna give a dramatic recitation of that passage from Ezekiel 25 that Samuel L. Jackson liked, and then he's poppin' a cap in his Argentine ass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 2:44pm Uncle Michael:

Francis is a rootypoot.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:46pm G:

@Droll: YooHooToob's motto is, it's our ball, it's our rules. They have a proprietary Algorithm of Unlove ( <-- cheesy 80s Yes reference) to flag little guys for catch-22 harassment. Welcome to life!
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:48pm G:

160 bucks from the 90% mark. One more decent size pledge, someone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 2:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

From the "Why has no one thought of this before?" department, I see on TV they're advertising a dog bone waffle iron thing. Hoo boy.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:51pm G:

85 bucks from 90%...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 2:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The home page is reading 90% now....good job!
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 2:52pm G:

And 90% it is. The last 10% climb has commenced...
Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 2:58pm Tony in Durham NC:

The END?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/16/13 2:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Goodbye, Mister Space Man. Until next week.
