  8:36am Listener Robert:

Neil, I've been an Arbitron respondent a few times in my life, but it doesn't matter who writes WFMU in the diaries (as I did) if no SUBSCRIBER to the proprietary results publishes or otherwise makes them available. I don't think Arbitron treats the findings as a trade secret, so subscribers are ALLOWED to disclose them, but few of them have any REASON to do so, except to tout their own station's standing.
  8:38am Listener Robert:

The hardest thing was writing "W276AQ" in an Arbitron diary entry space that had room only for 4 letter calls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am -Ken:

Neil - It's not a black and white situation as your question suggests, sonce the overwhelming majority of listeners use both the FM and the web to listen, depending on where they are,

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am -Ken:

Not for a while Karen. It's a 40-year contract so y'know...
  9:36am Listener Robert:

Mary, as to the prizes & premiums, in some cases they're donated, because the donors love WFMU, and in other cases they're made by the DJs, because they love making them. You hear one aspect of their creativity when they DJ a program, then you hear another aspect when they can spend an extended time putting together such things as compilations and even new productions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36am Ken From Hyde Park:

I hope the WFMU health plan is solvent once again. Joe McGasko was under the weather the other day. Was it last year or the year before that pretty much the entire staff was affected?

Speaking of knives and self defense, I very clearly remember a self-defense video floating around the “check out this dumb crap” world that had some guy showing off how everything could be a hidden weapon. Like knives were hidden everywhere and if you bought his video tape—and followed it—you could then protect yourself from all of the hidden knives of the world.

Anyone else remember it? Pretty sure someone in the Mr. Show world—Patton Oswalt or Paul F. Tompkins—talked about it.

PS: Bob Odenkirk talked about a similar anti-crime guy who they based the parody “Shake the Crime Stick!” on but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the same guy.
