WAS AWESOME.

Just saying.

@VaninDC: Sorry to confuse you last week with my cheap SNL/Matt Foley jokes.
Avatar 9:36pm Van in DC:

I lack popular culture stuff pretty much so my bad lol
  9:37pm JakeGould:

Here in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Sounds like 91.1FM just went off the air.
Avatar 9:38pm Snortley:

Yep. 91.1 is off the air.
Avatar 9:38pm Van in DC:

LOVE THE NADLER!
  9:38pm Alison Porchnik:

Also the case in Clinton Hill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm efd:

I just texted Ken, he's looking into the 91.1 signal.

Luckily I live in a society where my phone can stream.

Thank God for internet broadcast
Avatar 9:42pm Van in DC:

So, Irene, Julie, are you alternating sets? I'm not sure I could tell or not actually.

Whoever plays Toyah first would be a dead give away :)

Hi, Irene and Julie! I just pledged my last pledge of 2015 marathon... did you get it?

yes Chris

whew, groovy! thanks, Julie!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Ken:

The 91.1 transmitter's down to a power outage. There's several thousand locations without power nearby the 91.1 transmitter in West Orange. NJ. High winds are knocking down power lines tonight. Cant get a generator out there tonight but might be able to get one out there tomorrow if PE&G doesnt fix it overnight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Matt from Springfield:

High winds? Stay safe everyone, hopefully power and our transmitter will be up again quickly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Irene Trudel:

Dang! Well is guess everyone's going to have to pledge extra on the Web and from our other transmitter locations in upstate NY.
Avatar 10:00pm Van in DC:

Just did :)
Avatar 10:03pm Van in DC:

I do love Linda Perhacs, been waiting....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Bella Linda...
Avatar 10:05pm Van in DC:

Amazing how she waited so many decades before doing this. Wow. And still on top of her game.
  10:07pm JakeGould:

I was actually joking today about wind being a part of modern forecasts. Now look.
  10:09pm JakeGould:

At least it wasn’t a raccoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Chris and Van and Joe and everybody who's pledged so far. I can't keep track of the wonderfulness. But we do need more from you web folks.
Avatar 10:11pm Van in DC:

Dang. My signal is totally cutting out. Nothing for minutes.
Avatar 10:13pm Van in DC:

Finally back! Yay!
Avatar 10:15pm Van in DC:

Garbage can.
Avatar 10:15pm Roberto:

O hai Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Better hurry--the kitchen garbage can is taken but you might still have a shot at the hexagonal one! (I haven't gotten my fixture declared yet, so you'll have to find that out later ;)
  10:17pm Robert:

Severe geomagnetic storm under way -- cx to power failure?
Avatar 10:17pm Van in DC:

I have no idea about this adoption thing anyway lol :) If I get something okay. Already got Bosh though :)
Avatar 10:20pm Van in DC:

Don Bikoff is awesome. I saw Ryley last week live. Thanks for introducing me to him. GREAT guitarist!! And what a great interview!!!

I LOVE SVE! She is SUCH a sweetheart!!!!!

Oh my God I have listened to Sharon Van Etten so much these past months. You would not even believe.

Oh Lord, hope geomagnetic storms aren't a-brewin'...

but it is very quiet in here, make those phones ring
  10:33pm Robert:

Matt, the Frederickburg K index is only 6, but estimated planet-wide is 8.

Whenever I hear songs like this, I always hope they're not autobiographic.
Avatar 10:34pm Van in DC:

1. I miss Irene's show in the day time!
2. Julie - if Dark Night of the Soul was at this precise time these past years? I would probably have been fired years ago. Because of not being able to wake up the next day. That's where I'm at now with Irene's show.
Avatar 10:34pm Van in DC:

SVE!!!!
Avatar 10:35pm Van in DC:

Tarifa is the best track on Are We There though :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Sharon Van E track!
Avatar 10:36pm Van in DC:

I <3 SVE
Avatar 10:38pm Van in DC:

What amazes me is that nobody at FMU gets Daughter from 4AD, and they are even better than SVE actually. At least, it's in the same kind of thing.
Avatar 10:39pm Van in DC:

SVE extra, love it, thanks
  10:40pm Robert:

Hoping to see an aurora, anyway. I saw one here in the Bronx in the fall of 2003. Too much light pollution to see the colors, but 2 shafts of light extending from north past the zenith.
Avatar 10:42pm Van in DC:

Michael - I am so jealous.

ENJOY!!
  10:43pm JakeGould:

I just hope that fig turns people inside out doesn’t come around tonight. I’ve been taking care of myself and being turned inside out would really ruin things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Awwww :( I hope Keili makes return appearances!
  10:45pm Robert:

That's Ice PACK, if we're referring to Trouble's kid. I made the same mistake for a long time. Kind of the opposite effect, huh, ice pick vs. ice pack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Matt from Springfield:

This Is The Modern Dinner! Way to go, Trouble!
Avatar 10:46pm Van in DC:

Julie's show is missed so much.

SMKen - bring back Dark Night of the Soul.

Please?

  Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Ralphine:

This sounds like those Le Mystere de Voix Bulgares singers from about 20 years ago.
Avatar 10:54pm Van in DC:

Oh snap. You are so right Ralphine!
  10:54pm JakeGould:

I just checked and 91.1FM is back on the air. Thank you Bob Seger for going “Against the Wind.”
Avatar 10:55pm Van in DC:

I had one of their albums actually
  Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Ralphine:

There was a similar group called Trio Bulgarka, too.
Avatar 10:56pm Van in DC:

yep
Avatar 10:57pm Van in DC:

Those groups were about the same time as Master Drummers of Dagbon
  Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Ralphine:

Don't know them.
Avatar 10:59pm Van in DC:

I fully support you guys and local WETA for classical music in DC. Both are fully listener supported.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Asterisk grant - I believe it's a tiny sliver from the CPB (as a community broadcaster), the Free Music Archive settlement grant, and the Radio Free Culture grant from NEH a while back.

But those round to ZERO percent of operational budget! That's all from us! So the DJs can do what they want! And whatever they want, is what I want! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank you Van - as my ca$h is tighter now, you're helping out WETA while I prioritize FMU! (Can I also forward their junk mail to you too??...;)
Avatar 11:02pm Van in DC:

I love you both, Julie, Irene, or at least your musical prefs :)
Avatar 11:03pm Van in DC:

Matt - I freely give to both. Proudly :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes thank you, as I like WETA as well :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Bonnie Prince Billy - as the commenters like to call it: Pre-Clicked!! (Already Clicky-Starred from Irene's Dec 9 show!)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Julie:

it's verrrry quiet in here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Gaylord Fields:

To add insult to injury, when our 91.1 signal got knocked off, that station at 90.7, which I prefer not to name, insinuated itself onto my radio in its stead.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Julie:

shame on it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for clarifying the grants we get, Matt. Indeed they're a pittance in the whole scheme of funds we actually need to run this place.
Avatar 11:12pm Jeff Conklin:

That Bonnie track was lovely. Need to hear the rest of that album.
Avatar 11:13pm Van in DC:

Quiet?

Toyah would fix that. (I Explode)
Avatar 11:16pm Van in DC:

Love is the Law.

Just saying.

Because...well, Angels & Demons.

So there.
Avatar 11:16pm Slugsadist:

So how much does it cost FMU to add another person to the listening pool?
Avatar 11:17pm Slugsadist:

...say if they are using their phone or something. Does it cost extra to push it to another person?
Avatar 11:17pm Van in DC:

About 26 pixels.
Avatar 11:20pm Van in DC:

Pushes?

OH MY GOD.

That is like $27,000!

(minus oh, about $27K) :) )

EVERY YEAR I GAVE $3000 minimum and NEVER won Primavera. Sigh. No more.
  11:34pm JakeGould:

The transmitter was surplus used by the allies to fight Nazis, right? Or maybe those North Korean commies, right? Give em hell!
Avatar 11:36pm Van in DC:

Julie - wonderful to hear you again. You are so missed.

Irene - wonderful show as always, I'll catch up on what i'm about to miss.

Matt - You are the bestest. see you on the playlists or around DC soon my friend.

Everyone - Happy Saint Pat's Day, Have a great week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Ike:

I'm a little late here to the WETA discussion among D.C.ers (I'm originally from Maryland) but I'm sure they do huge amounts of underwriting and probably don't half as much of their budget from listeners as WFMU does. Those classical stations are filthy stinking rich. Not that it's a competition or anything. Ha.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Julie:

Beth Sorrentino for miinimum of $20
  11:42pm JakeGould:

@Ike: As someone who has worked with places who take funding from many “classical music types” I assure you even if the piece of paper says there are no strings attached… There are strings attached to that kind of cash.
  Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Ralphine:

We still get Car Talk reruns on the public radio stations down here because the donors want to hear them.
  11:46pm JakeGould:

@Ralphine: I’ve tripped off of the couch, injuring myself running to change the station if I accidentally take a nap, wake up and “Car Talk” is on the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Ike:

Exactly, @Jake. Another reason to generously donate to WFMU, a rare example of real independence, never taking money to water down its awesome craziness. @Ralphine, almost all of them still do that!

Carrsy Talk, for those who don't drive or aren't interested in cars, but like to hear those who do talk about cars, constantly getting off on tangents and setting up Car & Driver Fantasy Leagues.
