Hello Ken, all!

I think I have an idea on how to make any DJ to play the new Jandek CD!

Do you think a DJ would play a Jandek song from its CD if it were inside the jewel case of another band they like, and had its label taken off?

Say you find the Satanicpornocultshop CD jewel case in front of you just before the start of the show. The CD inside will be the one from Jandek but it will have no label and obviously you wouldn't know. Now imagine one Winged Monkeys ask the DJ in the comment section to play something from the new Satanicpornocultshop. Imagine other two winged monkeys approve of the request. Would you play a song from it ?

I think most of the DJ would fall for the trick. I actually think the Winged Monkeys can prank several of the DJS of the station in order to play the entire Jandek album on WFMU!!!

It would be like a 'Winged Monkey Operation Sabotage'. Jandek needs WFMU, and WFMU needs Jandek! The co-habit must continue! What do you guys think?
Avatar The Kenschlampen Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 9:20am Lewis:

i love it when I go to put a little star on a song and it is already there...
Avatar The Kenschlampen Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 9:21am Ken:

I think that is cheating f0f0. I cant believe you would propose such a thing.
  9:22am f≡f≡ (:

I would say stealing $5 and not playing Jandek is cheating.
  9:24am f≡f≡ (:

Well, taking 5 dollars out of a CD jewel case isn't exactly cheating because there was no agreement to play anything from it for that amount of money...

But, hey, this is pranking for a good cause!

That sounds like a great concept for a SSD show, Dan From Upstate!

Ken and Andy could read backwards the transcript of a previous show. Doesn't sounds like a lot of fun but at least we would be left with a reverse Trainwreck!

Shocked and appalled that a WFMU DJ would lower one's moral standards so far as to do something as reprehensible as taking a free five dollar bill. At least it wasn't a family member or friend of a DJ who took the money because we are not allowed in the second floor music library.

But what if they take the $20 note and play it..at home?!
Avatar 11:25am Dan B From Upstate:

Interesting. The train leaves the train wreck gorge and winds up back on the track.
Avatar 11:25am bobdoesthings:

Imagine going to the bank and getting back a $20 that says "PLAY THE NEW JANDEK!"

It's so fucked up. I even emailed the entire staff saying that I lost some money and I may have accidentally left it inside the new Jandek boxed set and did anybody find it please let me know because I really need that money which I lost

So, if Kleenex is a Swiss word, the band is?

I once read a study that said that the Swiss are the most difficult Europeans to make friends with (i.e. Unless you met them when you were kids you have 0 chances they will accept your friendship).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35am Guido from Cologne:

The band is!
Must that be said?
Love the track!

Ken have you ever played some of the 'numbers stations' shortwave broadcasts from the cold war. Just a series of numbers read . Kind of like sesame st on acid.

Kleenex the Brand forced Kleenex the Band to change their name to Lilliput. Just as the Glaxo Babies were Gl*xo Babies because of the power of the Corporation!

There's Theatre after Tori Amos. That is, she made a theatre play and presented it in London quite recently.

Did you know that the BBC shipping forecast radio message was interrupted for few minutes for the very first time like in a 100 years just three or four weeks ago ? Even some shipmen feared Britain was under a nuclear attack when they failed to hear the message. I promise you this is my last useless trivia fact...as for today.
