This Chris Forsyth is positively majestic. Hiya, Liz, Rev, fellow Lizners.

WMFU seems to be down. No signal I could hear just now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm fred:

As I said on the previous show, pledging to the station got me free beer. It could happen to you!

@Listener Robert: Which signal are you failing to get? Ike said he had transient trouble with 91.1

There were reports of 90.1 being down during Garbage Time.

I've been getting a clear signal at 91.1 @Ken and @Listener Robert
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm JP from KC:

Hope everyone on the east coast is safe and warm. Snow here in the heartland, too, but surely nowhere near Stella proportions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Liz Berg:

Greetings fine people of WFMUland! Thanks so much for your support, and if you haven't pledged yet, take a dip in the freeform hot tub!
  12:14pm Listener Robert:

I guess I should specify freq, since WMFU & WFMU are so easily read as each other. Then again, 90.1 & 91.1 are easily typed or misread for each other. I meant 90.1, WMFU; I think the Binghamton stn. may be coming thru, although under subrefractive conditions like this, it's a wonder that'd make it in here even faintly.
Avatar 12:14pm Joe McG:

Get in the running for the amazing Chris Forsythe prize now up for grabs and salute the amazing Liz Berg at the same time! Oh, and hi, everybody!
  12:16pm Listener Robert:

Oh, now I get what was said on the comments about 90.1's having "gone opera".
  12:17pm Curious:

Hey Liz, is there any chance you could read out some of the artists/song titles for your DJ premium? It sounds one of the most intriguing. Songs about food is probably better than food itself. I'm so indecisive about my DJ premium choices, but your CD remains on my "must have" list. Please convince me further!
Avatar 12:19pm bex piltz:

hi @liz
Avatar 12:19pm Joe McG:

@Curious: Liz can help you more, but you can check out her playlist from last week. She played two tracks from it including the amazing "Meat Sweats."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm fred:

A storm called Stella? That reminds me of a Kenny G show (accent.gmu.edu...)
  12:21pm Listener Robert:

Sometimes I wonder whether much of the suspense of this fund-raising is self-inflicted. That is, I think most people's decision to donate was made months ago, but because they know the marathon is coming, delay their pledges until now. They may be hoping to take advantage of a prize's being raffled off, or to call a tune for Yo La Tengo, or whatever, or it may be their own sense of drama. I get into the whole suspense thing myself, as you may see from my comments, but suspense has pluses & minuses.
  12:22pm Curious:

Thanks Joe. I missed last week's show. Will investigate. My robot party t-shirt from last year is my fave non-CD premium! Liz picks the best!
  12:23pm Joe stalvey:

Hear, hear, and let us be aware that in subrefractive conditions, mouse pledges are the safest option.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm common:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm fred:

@Robert: As long as they do pledge, I don't mind anyone's schedule. I tend to pledge in the first week because I love trying to offset some of the pressure on new DJs doing their first marathon shows
  12:28pm Listener Robert:

We'd love you even if you didn't do the marathon stuff, but I gather that at least for many of you at the station, it's an excuse to go wild -- like you needed one? So for instance I used to feel so bad for Ken for having to get tattooed or risk his life cluster ballooning in tight quarters; but after his wakeboarding accident I realized it was fun for him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm fred:

@Joe: I did the transfer today but I'm still waiting for a transaction number confirming my bank didn't fuck up this time. I'll email you as soon as I get it
Avatar 12:35pm Joe McG:

Pledges of $75 get you Liz's "Nom Nom" premium as well as a chance for your very own Emergency Alert System Test!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm annie:

liz!!! i forgot you were on! yay. just stepped back in the house. you got my money last week, but i still have some on my sfl donation to deal out.

Annie! Fred! Everyone else! Thanks for hunkering down with us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm fred:

I'm afraid I'll be a cheerleader only, Liz. I'm all pledged out
Avatar 12:40pm Joe McG:

I love this record and you can get it, too. Perfect music for the seaside or the winter blizzard! Pledge online or call 1-800-989-9368
  12:44pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Liz and Joe, two of my favorite reasons to volunteer at the station! Always nice to see you two
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Liz Berg:

Aww shucks, thanks Karen! Super appreciate all of your support and amazing food last week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Threemoons:

AMAZING set so far! Temp gig cancelled today due to snow, so home making coffee and listening to WFMU. Already gave 2x last week but may kick in again to run for the goodies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Zach:

you shoulda stayed in the spooky station!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm annie:

there were times i just had no dough to contribute, dirt poor. retirement DOES have its benefits, and i can afford my chunky-monthly donation.. i rarely extend beyond my financial limits, and FMU is very worth it!!!
  1:01pm Listener Robert:

I can affirm Mr. McGasko's point that there is some feeling of "skin in the game" when I donate. I'm not sure that's entirely a benefit, because of the anxiety factor, but I'm sure it's all good for the less neurotic of you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm annie:

yeah, but pronounce Willamette!!! i was grossly wrong in my mispronunciation... now i'm found..
Avatar 1:05pm Cheyenne:

Glad y'all are stayin' warm!! Sending a few sun-rays from the West!
Avatar 1:05pm Joe McG:

Thanks to everyone who can contribute at any amount! If you contribute $20 or more, you can get in the running for the Hiiragi Fukuda or Rosali albums, both now up for grabs!
Avatar 1:06pm Itzall Ablurr:

What, may I ask is "Liz's NOM NOM"?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Threemoons:

Just kicked in $75 from Astoria (look for it) hope to get one of those amazing Japanese CD giveaways as well as the DJ Premium! Thank you for braving the crappy weather and coming in Liz! Astoria, NYC loves you!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Threemoons:

BTW Liz please tell me that you pronounce Houston street correctly, and NOT like the place in Texas...
  1:24pm ferf:

I think all the FMU listeners can go without beer for a year to contribute to FMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Zach:

woo hoo!!!
  1:26pm Oiry:

Wow thanks !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Liz Berg:

Yes, Threemoons, I can pronounce Houston Street like a true NY-er!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hoo-sten, right, like "who"?
Avatar 1:30pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

@Threemoons - my niece visited me in NYC from the midwest and when we crossed "HOW-stun" Street, I told her the pronunciation and that now she can discern between tourists and natives. Her mom called me and said she corrected her later on. Made me smile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Pretty sure Honey Radar is the sound I heard in my head when I was a kid getting really stoned - & never thot could ever actually be heard in the outside world...
Avatar 1:31pm Joe McG:

Many more great prizes to come; get in the running now for Honey Radar and Jeffrey Lewis! Fantastic pop records! $20 or more will get you eligible.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm chris:

hi, Liz, Joe, all! I wonder if William Houstoun and Sam Houston ever met and arm wrestled over the pronunciation of their names

My wife actually is out of town this week. On business, not visiting her mother. This song reflects my sentiment quite perfectly.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm annie:

hey joe is it possible for you to see how much i've donated so far? i think i'm missing one.. shall i email you?
Avatar 1:41pm Jeff:

"Outta Town" could be a song about what WFMU would be like without Liz Berg.

The ship would probably keep sailing, although in a kind of weird wobbly way... then we'd all die from some gross illness you get when nobody remembers you have to clean up where the water got into the cargo compartment that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Threemoons:

Joe--also just emailed you, pledges not showing up on my page (no biggie) and I screwed up and forgot to pick premiums. No rush, just giving u a headsup.

I was wearing my WFMU jacket, which has the Woof Moo logo to Trader Joes this past week out here in San Diego and had a nice chat with the cashier, starting with him asking "What is WFMU?" So I am a happy ambassador to the uninitiated!
