Afternoon Sem!
Avatar 12:05pm βrian:

Good afternoon. I'm here, but I'm hungry, so I may have to bolt.
  12:06pm Mark R:

Always happy when I can catch your show (which isn't often enough :(), Megan. Good ol' Galaxie 500. I always forget how great they were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Meghan:

hahaha.... This is why I have my lunch prior to show.... that and it's difficult eating and DJing....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Meghan:

aw, thanks Mark!
  12:07pm Mark R:

Yes but you have to eat lunch at 11:30 like the first graders.
  12:07pm queems:

meghan, thanks for the great show on sunday! got me through anxious parkway driving!
Avatar 12:08pm βrian:

Yeah, on-air dining doesn't work nearly so well as on-air beer tastings. Those were kinda fun.
Avatar 12:09pm glenn:

slow and tiny? why not just call it trump's brain?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Meghan:

Drinking on air works way too well! hahaha...

thanks queems.... I love doing those reggae fill ins!

hello Meghan; aquatic outsiders
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Meghan:

Hey there Coel!
  12:28pm Mark R:

I love this Paul Simon album and I don't think I've heard anyone else ever play it on FMU. I think it got lost in the shadow of "Graceland," but it's equally great in its own way.
  12:30pm Mark R:

I hope you don't stop--I hope you go til like 4 or 6 or whatever! I'd love it! (Sometimes you might have a date or whatever, though.)
Avatar 12:33pm glenn:

yeah, meghan. when's date night?
Avatar 12:33pm glenn:

and does jeff know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Meghan:

The date is usually work..... or me dealing with issues at home..... hehe.
Avatar 12:36pm glenn:

gee. whatever happened to the glamourous deejay life?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm annie:

i made it!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Meghan:

hahaha glamourous DJ life..... hahahaha

Hey there Annie!

Phew! Tummy is happy!
Avatar 12:42pm glenn:

hmmm. what if there was a friends remake...

and they were all wfmu deejays?
Avatar 12:42pm glenn:

well, maybe except for joey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Meghan:

ha! Who would you cast as whom?
Avatar 12:43pm coelacanth∅:

no! stop. don't give Ken any more ideas.
Avatar 12:45pm glenn:

irwin is ross, obviously. frangles is phoebe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Meghan:

fascinating.... so who is Rachel, Chandler and Monica?
Avatar 12:46pm coelacanth∅:

there was one "friend" who wasn't a backstabbing asshole. i forget his name. (the one that's not joey or ross or female)
Avatar 12:48pm coelacanth∅:

oh -chandler i guess.
...so who gets to play the decent one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Meghan:

Avatar 12:48pm glenn:

in a gender switcheroo, chandler is played by meghan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Meghan:

but he's got to be dry and sarcastic
Avatar 12:49pm glenn:

as i said...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Meghan:

Oh snap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Meghan:

Well I guess I am dry and sarcastic! haha
Avatar 12:50pm glenn:

hmmmm. although that causes problems with the chandler monica love thingy.
Avatar 12:50pm coelacanth∅:

  12:50pm Mark R:

This Bob Destiny fellow is nutsy cuckoo. (That's a compliment.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Meghan:

Avatar 12:51pm βrian:

The TV room is downstairs, kids.
Avatar 12:51pm glenn:

well, meghan, if you want to play for the other team, bronwyn can be monica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Meghan:

only if it has wood paneled walls, macrame art and shag carpeting....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Meghan:

Bronwyn C or B?
Avatar 12:53pm coelacanth∅:

"that 70s friends show"?
Avatar 12:54pm glenn:

oh man. i love them both.
  12:55pm Mark R:

I have the same problem on those darn PC's! If I'm lucky, someone's already typed something like Hüsker Dü and it will autofill. Otherwise, I'm dead.
Avatar 12:56pm βrian:

Camaráo ?
Avatar 1:02pm northguineahills:

One of the reasons I love the folk art museum next to MOMA (Well, I like MOMA too).
  1:02pm unlurrned:

Is this station just a sister station to WFMU? Is it a playground for those who don't have or used to or can't get a show on WFMU?
Avatar 1:04pm βrian:

This is the Drummer Stream which I view sometimes as sanctuary form the main broadcast.
Avatar 1:04pm northguineahills:

Let's just say WFMU has more talent then they know what to do w/, so they have multiple sister streams. Bonus, these streams don't have to abide by FCC standards.
  1:06pm unlurrned:

So Mary Wing can now drop multiple F-bombs and talk about her sex life? I'm sold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think a Venn diagram might be helpful.
  1:07pm queems:

i love having the option to listen to something different than what is going on on the terrestrial radio but with the same eclectic selection and cool values
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Meghan:

hahahaha.... The idea of Mary Wing talking about her sex life.....
Avatar 1:07pm βrian:

Mary is free to add salt when needed.
Avatar 1:08pm northguineahills:

There are definitely F bombs. Also, many of these programs are djed remotely rather then at the mothership. (adds for more diversity, IMHO).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hoo boy. Imagine if Shut Up, Weirdo moved to the Drummer stream.
Avatar 1:08pm northguineahills:

I found out about that Modern Lovers track from Sloan.
Avatar 1:09pm βrian:

I heard "knitting for the man." Subversive that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Meghan:

I will say that I do have to stop and allow myself to say Fuck.... I'm so used to trying to NOT say it.... but I've been allowed to my entire time at the station during my personal shows.... obviously not the fill ins...
Avatar 1:11pm βrian:

I'm pretty sure "phoque" is always ok, though — if you want to make reference to the French for "seal."
Avatar 1:12pm βrian:

Ph bombs are ok.
  1:12pm queems:

@ken i don’t even want to imagine what the phone calls would be like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Meghan:

I like Feck.... but it sounds too close
Avatar 1:17pm northguineahills:

pH bombs can hurt, though.
Avatar 1:18pm βrian:

We're vey polite in Wisconsin. To express shock and dismay we exclaim, "Wisconsin Tourism Federation!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Meghan:

ha! Wisconsin Tourism Federation gets a lot of love in the world....
Avatar 1:20pm northguineahills:

Wisconsin + tourism = "does not compute!"

/I need to spend more time in WI outside of Milkwaukee.
Avatar 1:21pm northguineahills:

"Feck! Drink! Guurrrrlllsss!"

(miss Father Jack and Father Ted).
Avatar 1:26pm βrian:

@NGH: Next time hit the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest or the area around Viroqua, for example.
Avatar 1:26pm glenn:

jeez people. land o' lakes. c'mon.

Do we line up for Meghan's Dedication to a Dog?

Strangely, I've only been to Milwaukee once. I've lived here for 11 years.
  1:37pm johnk77:

good show selecter
i want to go to elkhart lake
in my bitchin camarao
Avatar 1:43pm northguineahills:

Ack, someone took my copy of Private Press when I was djing once upon a time.

/I've only been to Milwaukee's airport. But I once did that long distance of a girl that a phD candidate at UW-Madison.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Meghan:

ha! When I worked at a liquor store up in Boston, I had a customer who worked at a burrito joint around the block buy Hamms all the time. We gave him a massive discount since he always gave us free burritos.... but I was like, dude, you are paying 25 cents for a 6 pack of any beer.... why not make it good beer?!
Avatar 1:52pm northguineahills:

I give up on grammar, from now on, I'll just talk in pidgin English. (is that how Clay talks?)
Avatar 1:53pm geezerette:


here's a great one!
  1:54pm queems:

oh man i looooove this !!! track
Avatar 1:55pm northguineahills:

Never had Hamm's. I make an attempt to try any beer I've never tried before.

I have this !!! rekkid.
Avatar 1:56pm geezerette:

NGH, I'd take Meghan's advice on that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Meghan:

It was the CHEAPEST beer we had.... for 6 of them.... if that speaks volumes.....
Avatar 1:57pm βrian:

I recall buying 8-packs of Rhinelander longnecks for ... $1.89! (Cheaper than beer, you might say.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Listener Bob in PGH:

I've always loved !!! (!!!) Don't generally go for anything quite so funky but I gotta submit. Love the Big Boys too, and that's FUNKY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

On the other end of the spectrum is our friend Tom Herzog, who would always order something fancy. One time where he ordered a Malt Duck, the bartender told us later "I thought I'd never get rid of that stuff."
Avatar 1:58pm geezerette:

Hey, as a duck I take that personally!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Stevel:

Brian (and other Wisconsin types): My go-to cheap brew was Huber and (when in season only) Huber bock, priced under $2 per 8-packs of long-neck bottles. The joy of affordable alcoholism.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Meister Brau was always cheapest when I was doing that dumb stuff (youth)
Avatar 2:01pm northguineahills:

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wonder if there are enough songs about cheap beer to fill a two-hour theme-based radio program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Bobby Whirlwind:

Invigorating sounds thank you!
Avatar 2:02pm northguineahills:

@geezerette: I like cheap shitty beer (but usually still to the good stuff).
Avatar 2:03pm βrian:

I think Huber and Rhinelander were really the same beer.
Avatar 2:03pm coelacanth∅:

we used to get a case of 24 schmitts pints for 8 bucks, but that was some time ago.
Avatar 2:03pm geezerette:

Meghan, your show is so much fun. :D
Avatar 2:03pm northguineahills:

βrian: I've had those!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Stevel:

Meghan: Your fill-ins for Jeff Sarge are righteous!
Avatar 2:04pm coelacanth∅:

it's all subjective. i know people who choose budweiser over other beer. blugh.

Thanks Meghan!
  2:04pm unlurrned:

one more question. why is it called give the drummer radio? doesnt sound right
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Stevel:

Brian: To quibble, I believe Huber was made in Monroe. Rhinelander in Rhinelander. As far as quality, I'd say you are correct.

Cheap and often not that great, the Wisconsin beers all had a character of their own, which I still appreciate. (Go Point!)
Avatar 2:08pm coelacanth∅:

back in the day Doug's show, called "give the drummer some" was on (the only) wfmu. he started and is in charge of this stream, so it's named after his show.
