You know, Roger Hill got the role of Cyrus after the person originally cast in the role mysteriously vanished... Of course, that guy was an actual gang member, so I think what happened to him ain't much of a mystery, apart from the precise and grusome details.

I am sorry to hear there are so many toilets. The women waiting in line for the toilet is my best 'captive audience' trolling territory.

If there is any beer involved 8 toilets are necessary

ken - may we hear marie singing 'paper roses' slowed down, too?

Ken, bring back Knuckles the Dog. Nothing gets people pledging like a 3 hanky tear jerker.

i was listening to 91.1 for HOURS before i even noticed the annoying screeching sound in the background. i just figured it was part of the show i was listening to.
Avatar 10:54am Whooda:

DJ Station Manager Ken, was the failed component of the transmitter the solenoid safety bypass switch or that pesky muffler bearing.
Avatar 10:55am fred von helsing:

@mikeEast got pix ? pls say yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Marcel M:

I don't get the signal well in my car so when I listen to Fabio's show or similar shows I never know when the feedback is supposed to be there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Mike East:

no fred, I spaced. epic fail. I kinda had to split ASAP cuz I was in the dog house a bit with my wife for going around running errands for a radio station instead of helping her with the baby.
I did get a pic with ken in the wfmu parking lot, though.

Ah, from "Bloodsport" to "They Live"... It's a veritable smörgåsbord of 80s classics.

that would be a "self-pity" pledge.

@mikeE like stepping into a time machine and expecting to hear War of the Worlds come crackling over the ether ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Mike East:

lots of dusty glowing tubes, knobs, meters, and toggle switches.

Ken, I forgive you every Wednesday. Just not monetarily.

I remember that Bloodsport guy. He threw something in Van Damme's eyes to blind him, and Van Damme still kicked his ass.

@mikeE was there a Jacob's Ladder, that would make the mental image COMPLETE
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am dale:

steve - if you head over to the website for shortwave blowtorch wbcq you can see some transmitter pics - i think most of their stuff is wwii surplus
Avatar 11:13am Whooda:

The transmitter, in parts, belongs to the listeners, hence the pitch for more money.

Those old transmitter vacuum tubes could be auctioned-off on Ebay to pay for a shiny new model.

What's the bed music? I can't quite place it I'm guessing it's on Tommy Boy around 1990.

Avatar 11:19am fred von helsing:

the station could totally offer guided transmitter tours for high-pledging gearheads. pack duct tape and lead solder.

Still need to get this Matmos album
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:20am Andrew Waterloo:

@fred, at the end of the tour everybody contributes to the giant wad of bubble gum that holds the antenna to the tour.
Avatar 11:23am Whooda:

I have stared at that meercat GIF for hours now and laugh until it hurts..every time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am tim from champaign:

Me to, Andrew. I think that every time Ken plays Matmos.
Avatar 11:25am fred von helsing:

and then wrap Ken in any leftover baling wire for fond photographic memories
Avatar 11:27am steve:

then take some dusty unused tubes laying in the corner and make an 10x overpriced guitar amp

a pity pledge should be like pity sex - don't question the reason why, just lie back and take it.
