@Dave B.: Thanks for that link. I remember the 1969 blizzard, I was kid, but school was cancelled so it was a historical holiday in MY memory. The blizzard came after the garbage collectors in the city had been on strike for weeks, there where huge piles of plastic garbage bags on the sidewalks, which were then covered with snow, forming these huge white "walls" of snow lining the sidewalks at the curb. It wasn't like THE disaster of the year (remember Star Trek was cancelled in '69), just another NY adventure.

From one Ken to another, a helpful hint: The gas gauge on your car's dashboard should have a little arrow that points to which side has the gas cap.

hey Ken, this is probably a dumb question but have you tried emailing Matt F and asking? im assuming you've been in contact with him on account of the Andy Breckman song. i wrote him an email about one of his movies the other day and he seemed really excited and willing to provide lots and lots of info to anyone who gets in touch with him

Is there a reason why there's no way to access archived 7SD shows from previous years with the WFMU app?

Because there's no way to make work the flash player from a Android mobiles if you go directly to the website using a normal mobile browser.

For those who don't know:
It used to be one commune that loved stoned jamming (not considering themselves as a band).

After Essener Songtage Festival 1968 they devided in Amon Düül I (the commune) and Amon Düül II (the 'professional musicians').
