Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm chris:

hey, Kenzo, you out there? Is there a way the video could be embedded on the page in such a way as it doesn't interfere with the playlist refresh? i've got two tabs open now, but just curious...
  7:27pm BillyJam:

Avatar 7:49pm northguineahills:

Seems like a lifetime ago when Handsome Boy Modeling School came out, and that still seems recent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

There should be a list of all the various rappers in the videos. On a web page where you could print it out ahead of time and then check off the personalities as they appear. I'm really weak on this; beyond Shaq, I don't recognize them on sight.
  7:52pm BillyJam:

note that for her board-op engineering duties that BRONWYN B is doing extra work today in balancing out the levels which are all over the place on the video version (which I did not fully edit down in sound mode) Hence if you are monitoring the video version - you will notice imbalances in the levels - including in the next song may get louder in volume
  7:53pm spidermank nli:

getting louder is always good on PTNOTR
  7:53pm BillyJam:

@Ken from Hyde Park - there is no one source of info on all the people in these videos - although I do know a good deal of those who make lil cameos - but didn't bother to write them all down (this time) - maybe in next time if time allows I will do that -
Avatar 7:54pm northguineahills:

danks for the Jam, Billy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

^^^more skills for Bronwyn to list on her resume.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm chris:

thank you, Bronwyn B!
thank you, Billy Jam!
thank you, Video Booth Ruth!
much love to you and everyone tuned in! (extra hug for pledging to FMU!)
  7:55pm BillyJam:

thanks to RUTH and BRONWYN B for running shit back in NJ studios - Thanks to YOU for listening/watching and supporting WFMU during our October Fundraiser - Note that KING of the 45's Mr Fine Wine -for whom every week is 45s Going Steady week (this week) - is up next followed by Daniel BLumin
