Options September 15, 2018: Mother Termite Lives in Chicken and Other Tales
Imagine a sequence of unrelated tales translated from the tattooed hieroglyphics on the tongues of a chorus of old salts who, upon emerging from a pub after several days and nights of hard drink, bawdy song, and a barkeep who had threatened them with all manner of violent acts to be perpetrated upon their bodies if they didn’t shut up, had a brief brush with fame when a photographer of some reknown captured a moment where they, staggering at angles so severe, were prisoners of a gravity that you and I will never know. Now, forget that and imagine a warehouse find of a stash of unknown Caedmon LPs: Cary Grant reading Aldous Huxley’s The Doors of Perception, Groucho Marx reading Mark Twain’s The Mysterious Stranger, Dirk Bogarde reading Colin Wilson’s The Outsider, Shel Silverstein reading from Francois Rabelais’ Gargantua and Pantagruel. Now, forget that and imagine 40+ minutes of air time featuring the literary talents of Gaylord Fields, Bronwyn C., Steinski, DJ Stashu, Cheyenne, Scott Williams, and the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass. That’s what you're going to hear if you tune in this evening at midnight.

Hiya, Rich! Termites? lemme tell you about termites...
  12:05am rich:

good morning all,

here for you to look at: https://www.instagram.com/fergemanden/
Avatar 12:05am coelacanth∅:

presumably a wooden chicken
  12:07am grace gold way:

scary im getting goosebumps
Avatar 12:08am coelacanth∅:

they might be chicken bumps
  12:11am rich:

rubber chicken bumps
Avatar 12:12am Franco Twinkie:

As I sit here barely awake, the termites are busy eating the kitchen cabinets and I can't seem to muster the interest to do anything about it.
  12:12am Plasmobe:

Whoops, transitioned to the next show.. Yes, coelecanth... WKCR..Columbia University. WFDU in NJ was another station that played good stuff back in the day. I was always a 'left of there dial' explorer back then. All the best music was left of 92 on the FM dial, lol
Avatar 12:15am coelacanth∅:

i can't polka to this at all.
Avatar 12:16am coelacanth∅:

Bronwyn C?
Avatar 12:17am coelacanth∅:

...haha! oops i just saw that you're disclosing the narrators over there!
Avatar 12:18am northguineahills:

lultz, coel!
Avatar 12:18am coelacanth∅:

Plasmobe i never learned about wfdu when i was in nj. where was that based?
Avatar 12:20am coelacanth∅:

...oh probably fordham, no?
  12:20am Plasmobe:

IIRC , Fordham University. I recall they used to, share the signal with I think WNYU (NY University) FDU would come on the air around 10pm till sometime in the morning then NYU would take over again...or something like that
  12:22am Plasmobe:

I heard bands like 'Crash Course In Science' and Head Cheese ('Jungle Jam") on FDU, lol
Avatar 12:22am Franco Twinkie:

You guys have planned to do this for a long time - I can tell! Do you think you can insert a disposable musical interlude so I can go into the termite infested kitchen and smear something on a cracker?
Avatar 12:24am coelacanth∅:

i might've listened to it occasionally without ever knowing the call letters. rsu was another sometimes good one (out of rutgers)
...back then wfmu also stopped transmitting usually at midnight or at 2 am. most of the shows were 4 hours long and i think they had trouble getting 2am-6am people.
  12:24am rich:

fdu is fairleigh dickinson
  12:25am Plasmobe:

Oh...and not to mention, "The Devil Lives In My Husband's Body" by Pulsallama, lol
  12:26am Plasmobe:

Ah yes, Rich, correct!
  12:27am Plasmobe:

Memory is not stable, lol
Avatar 12:27am coelacanth∅:

fairleigh dickenson, in madison i believe. a very beautiful old campus if i remember correctly
  12:29am Plasmobe:

But noes I think of it...didn't Fordham have a 'good' station?
  12:29am Plasmobe:

...'now' :)
Avatar 12:29am coelacanth∅:

i don't think so. it's wfuv.
  12:30am grace gold way:

ok now i have chicken bumps... yeah fordham is also a lot more humbler than nyu, if i dare me so bold
  12:30am Plasmobe:

Wait a sec.... Fordam did the 'mountain stage; country bluegrass thing now that I think of it
Avatar 12:30am coelacanth∅:

(terrible people playing mostly mediocre music)
  12:31am rich:

memory is what covers the floor of my stable
  12:31am grace gold way:

b, dare b so bold
Avatar 12:31am Franco Twinkie:

From this point forward, this is the way I want to enjoy a story. In the morning I'm going to throw all my books into the trash.
Avatar 12:32am coelacanth∅:

that's them. my sister gives them lots of money and they give her tickets to one or the other of those events.
Avatar 12:33am coelacanth∅:

(my sister has unadventurous musical inclinations so fuv is good for her)
  12:33am grace gold way:

mayb some1 would like your books tho, franco twinkie. dont just trash um.
Avatar 12:34am northguineahills:

I'm going to off myself to sleep, (slept better then usual this week, but still tired. Thanks, Rich, Stashu, Bronwyn, Gaylord, Petra, Scott, Cheyenne! buenos noches amigos!
Avatar 12:34am Franco Twinkie:

Well, okay.
Avatar 12:35am coelacanth∅:

crap, i've been able to guess all the fmu air voices so far but
...oh is it Cheyenne?
(i'll look)
  12:35am Dean:

Rabelais, one I.
Avatar 12:35am coelacanth∅:

ha! got it!
Avatar 12:36am northguineahills:

Franco has the right idea (still not throwing my books in the trash).

@coel: I'm better w/ voices then faces....
  12:36am Plasmobe:

What I find bizarre is after 25+ years, many of the same people are still on the air, lol
Avatar 12:36am Franco Twinkie:

Dean! Are the kids in bed? Let's talk about spicy food!
  12:37am grace gold way:

i am certain that mr wiggles is a rip off of Uncle Wiggily Longears!!!!!
Avatar 12:38am coelacanth∅:

ngh i'm good with both but not always good with names
Avatar 12:39am coelacanth∅:

if i'm done with a book and don't find someone who wants it i place it in one of the free lending libraries in town
  12:39am Dean:

Kinda, sorta in bed. But no spicy food talk. I made a hella good shepherd's pie (albeit with beef, not lamb) tonight. Hella good.
Avatar 12:40am northguineahills:

heck, I can tell people apart just by hearing footsteps...(I have a photographic memory, but for some reason, since my 20s, It takes a few encounters for someone's face to imprint...
Avatar 12:40am coelacanth∅:

okay i didn't guess Steinski. it's been too long.
Avatar 12:42am northguineahills:

I could tell it was Steinski just by the beats and samples...

we also have free lending library boxes here, there one on the block behind mine.
Avatar 12:42am Franco Twinkie:

Oh man, I love shepherds pie! If you were closer, I would trade you a slice of fig pie straight up!
Avatar 12:43am coelacanth∅:

funny,ngh. i just told someone a few days ago that i knew when it was she coming down the balcony stairs in a local market she works in, without looking
Avatar 12:44am coelacanth∅:

well this one's easy even without the voice!
Avatar 12:45am northguineahills:

In Brooklyn, I could tell which of my neighbors were coming up the steps. I obviously could tell when my wife was coming up.

what coel said....
Avatar 12:45am Franco Twinkie:

...Well she's comin' down the stairs, combing back her yellow hair...
  12:45am Plasmobe:

Wow, these past few hours are the FMU I know and love
Avatar 12:45am grtyvr:

wow. just wow.
Avatar 12:46am coelacanth∅:

Franco now i have to listen to that before i sleep tonight. (the Peter Rowen, Tony Rice, etc version)
Avatar 12:47am Franco Twinkie:

Good one, mate.
Avatar 12:51am Franco Twinkie:

I love the PLU christmas record!
Avatar 12:54am Franco Twinkie:

I love butter milk, especially Knudsens. It has little flecks of butter suspended....
Avatar 12:57am coelacanth∅:

i could never understand why my older brother liked buttermilk when we were little. when i was 16 though and had to teach myself how to cook i discovered that there's no reason at all to make pancakes if i don't have any buttermilk.
Avatar 12:59am grtyvr:

that was awesome!
Avatar 12:59am Franco Twinkie:

I shoudn't nap in the evening - now it's late and I'm going crazy with energy. I'm gonna go take a shower and try to calm down. Goodnight.
  1:00am grace gold way:

fig pie sounds nice right now
Avatar 1:00am coelacanth∅:

sleep tight Franco don't let the termites bite
Avatar 1:01am Franco Twinkie:

One slice left, Grace.
Avatar 1:01am coelacanth∅:

Yay! (what grtyvr said)
Avatar 1:03am grtyvr:

Avatar 1:04am grtyvr:

Avatar 1:07am coelacanth∅:

hey grty!
  1:08am grace gold way:

thanks franco t ;)
  1:10am grace gold way:

why is math the preference on this station for those who post anon? what about logic, literature, sciences, the arts? why, ken? why?
Avatar 1:23am coelacanth∅:

time for me to attempt sleep
Thanks Rich (and all)
good night all
Avatar 1:31am grtyvr:

  2:16am west ridge:

I like this song
Avatar 2:38am northguineahills:

Up, and going back to slumber, loved the first hour and the last 15 mins. Salud!
  2:51am rw:
