Hey Joe. Congratulations to the whole team, that's EVERYONE.
Managed to stay up for the first two sets and twenty minutes before the goal was reached.
Terrific as someone once said.

Oh good Joe, cuz you were channeling Zevon very well last night
  Mon. 3/20/17 9:28am JakeGould:

Hey Joe! Happy you were finally able to vent your frustrations with lawyers, guns and money! But did you suffer from the WFMU marathon cold that everyone was catching? I caught it! Woo! Such fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/20/17 9:29am doctorjazz:

I'm so thrilled FMU got to the goal without TOO much trouble this year! Especially gratifying that it was done without JM in the AM! My recollection is that it was much more difficult the past few years (when you had them), maybe worked out for the best...

Get well soon and put your cardigan on!

This M&Ms track is cute!
  Mon. 3/20/17 9:59am JakeGould:

FWIW, I worked the phones a few days an I think this marathon worked so well because a lot of people went the “Swag 4 Life” route. Great hyping of that.

Or could it just be my internet connection? the music sounds kind of jerky...

could be, I just changed from the pop up (which I usually use and sounds OK), to the 24k Windows, seems to be better. Odd, though (not that I understand any of this internets stuff)

I can't be the only WFMU person who feels hungover after last night — and I was sober! So I can't even imagine what Joe McG must feel like about now! He left nothing (including germs) on that stage!

@Gaylord: I made sure to take my germs with me. :)

damn, these guys are fantastic!
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:28am Joe McG:

@Brian: They sing almost always in Estonian, yes. The lyrics are apparently a bit surreal! I think one of their LPs has online translations.

I don't miss Stereolab as much anymore. Thanks Joe.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:31am Joe McG:

You bet, Zopa. Their new LP will be out here in April.

Good morning Joe and all. I admit I wasn't expecting the marathon to go so well. It makes the relief sweeter
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:33am Joe McG:

Aw, thanks, Cheryl, I had such an amazing time despite being sick! @fred: You said it!

@bex: I feel as good as Joe McG feels (and as worn out as he sounds)!

Sorry I missed your show, but I just woke up 30 seconds ago. You CRUSHED last night, Joe! A highlight among highlights.'
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:36am Joe McG:

Thanks, Greg! I had such great fun. I'm glad that you got a salute from the stage for your incredible web banner!

@melinda: What @Cooh John says. (Perhaps some enterprising travel agent should offer Working Holiday–type marathon-cation packages.)

I made the mistake of working today...but seeing Ali at the top makes it all worth while!
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:42am Joe McG:

Once we saw Bowie next to Prince, we knew it had to be Ali!
  Mon. 3/20/17 11:44am Cooh John:

That would be nice, Gaylord. But this marathon neither lawyers, guns, or money could have kept me away. No better place to be when I got the news that Rock and Roll died, as Lennon would say.

The river is called Mother Rive. I rented a studio next to their recording studio. It's 5 minutes to center and 5 minutes to countryside through this alley: 2.bp.blogspot.com...
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:47am Joe McG:

Ah, estimo, I was hoping you were still here! Thanks for the Tartu info. Do you live in Tartu or nearby?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/20/17 11:48am estimo:

Yep, in Tartu. I know Kaspar from early ages, used to do snowboarding with him.

Thought it was pretty cool, you working the phones for the Marathon, CJ.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:50am Joe McG:

Greetings, ints! @estimo: Kaspar is a very nice guy! I liked Siim and Kristiina very much also.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/20/17 11:51am Brian in UK:

Well survived, Joe. Like the Estonian sounds. Good people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/20/17 11:51am Ike:

Me neither @Fred! What a relief! Great-sounding 'thon, too. Great job, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/20/17 11:51am maestroso:

Really enjoying this Tartu Popi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/20/17 11:52am estimo:

There are other nice sound from Estonia as well, should send you some!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/20/17 11:52am Andrew Waterloo:

Just loving everything by these guys.

Thanks, Joe, Tartu Popi Ja Roki Instituut, and the audio team!

Really excellent show, Joe, cold and all. Very proud of the JC crew. Thank you.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:55am Claw!:

ooh, Joe... although you sound very sultry and husky, I hope you get better
Great show!

That's a great photo, Estimo.

so good! thanks joe!
  Mon. 3/20/17 11:57am Cooh John:

It would have been great to see you there SC. I got to meet so many dj's, comment board friends, and other WFMUers. The love and music amidst the self-organizing chaos was other-worldly.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 11:58am Joe McG:

Thanks to you all for listening and thanks to everyone who pledged to keep us going! You're the best! See you next week, hopefully with less husk in my voice. :)
  Mon. 3/20/17 11:59am JakeGould:

Cool meeting you too Cooh John!
  Mon. 3/20/17 12:00pm Cooh John:
