Hi everyone! Dialing in via interwebs from my hermetically sealed Brooklyn garden apartment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm ultradamno:

Fine Honky Radio Ville!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Handy Haversack:

Hi, all!

Becky, real nice to meet you at the JCBdayB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hey-o Becky, Mr Finewine, Matt!

So, this is NOT the His ‘n’ Hers Marathon Edition after all?
Avatar 8:06pm dale:

bubble becky is better than no becky.
  8:06pm P-90:

OH, Hi Becky! Co-hosting by remote, cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Becky:

No, I'm not co-hosting, just...observing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Becky:

@Handy you too!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Becky:

Hey, Mr. Fine Wine, lay off playing better records than me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Matt Fiveash:

Pledge for hillbilly popcorn & hillbilly northern soul!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

You have the soccer game on, Becky? US & Japan now. It was England & Spain earlier.
Avatar 8:16pm JakeGould:

Becky, so are you exercising an abundance of caution given everything?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Handy Haversack:

This album is worth $20, that's for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Becky:

Yes, Jake, that's about the long and short of it.
Avatar 8:19pm βrian:

Northville is McMansion-land.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Becky:

HEY I WAS ALSO AT THAT PARTY
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Becky:

Remember parties? I miss them.
Avatar 8:21pm JakeGould:

My employer is encouraging working from home this week (at least) so I decided to take a break and head over to Sunset Park to see what it’s like. If you like seeing 4 out of 10 people wearing face masks of various types and triggering anxiety as a result, that is a place to go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

I think my chronic sinusitis may start to come in handy in getting people to give me a wide berth going forward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Becky:

Ha, well, that's just it. You cough once and everyone looks at you like you belong on North Brother Island.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm KidProJoe:

Anyone know how I credit DJs and pick swag if I'm already a Swag 4 Life member?
Avatar 8:23pm JakeGould:

I was at a cafe today telling friends about what I saw there… As I head to sit down I am carrying a snack and a coffee and… Just had no hands to covet my nose as I sneezed… I smiled politely and nodded my head as I hung it low to sit down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Handy Haversack:

Make it work for yourself! You want a seat on the subway? Just start coughing.

Though I am getting tired of explaining to NYers *who ought to know better* what a heroin hack sounds like.
Avatar 8:24pm JakeGould:

If Huey “Piano” Smith were alive today, I would expect him to milk that tune he uses for illness songs for “Coronavirus Blues.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm dave wuz here:

this morning at the supermarket somebody sneezed and everybody within earshot shit themselves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Handy Haversack:

@KidProJoe: You can pledge during any show, select "one time" and no swag and then add a note in the Office Comments that you want to aim $X out of your S4L amount to that show. Select "Bill me later" on the last page.

For your swag, you should have got an e-mail from Joe McG at some point to select it all. If not, e-mail him or wait till you get a big summary e-mail at the end of Marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Handy Haversack:

Mary Wing and CarolCrow collaborated on "My-My-My-My Corona" this afternoon. Brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm KidProJoe:

Thanks Handy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Becky:

Love that this is a song partially about working under the table.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Handy Haversack:

Great tune. Gah, so many Premiums. So little ability to go on a crime spree meaningful enough to afford them all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Becky:

Not sure about Backus's relatives but he WAS a Del-Viking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Handy - You could take out a loan against your 401k, but ... you know ... .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Handy Haversack:

Ha! We nonprofit toilers think not about such matters, @KenFHP. Crime sprees are much more attainable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm ultradamno:

It would appear not. Gus was born in Long Island, Jim in Ohio, no overt mentions of being immediate family in Wiki.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Matt Fiveash:

Jim Backus is on Come Go With Me?!?!?
  8:32pm P-90:

The other Irene is a find!
  8:35pm P-90:

I was a rock-steady Radio Thrift Shop listener from day one. Still miss it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Handy Haversack:

The WFMU pledge line is almost specifically designed to make we rotarianos turn to our push-button "bank telephones" in desperation. But I have made a point of dialing with it every time I've called in. Pointless stands being my stock in trade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Richard S:

Hello! Just got the chance to sign in now (I was busy washing my hands). How is everyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Matt Fiveash:

Web pledges comin in but we love the phone! Call 800-989-9368! Put our phone serfs to work!
Avatar 8:42pm Cabbage:

Evenin' All!!!
Avatar 8:48pm Cabbage:

Love that dog song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Handy Haversack:

I specifically refrained from stepping on my dog during it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm ultradamno:

I sat on my cat briefly a couple of weeks ago. They just make it so hard not to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Folsom:

Sounds like we need combo novelty country songs with Rex (bonus with Spazz)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm ultradamno:

Still, that's no excuse for not killing more people. You've got to live your life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Becky:

HEY WAS THAT THURL RAVENSCROFT????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Becky:

TOTALLY IS
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Richard S:

Hooray for Thurl!
  8:54pm P-90:

The Unmistakable Thurl
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm ultradamno:

Thurl was grr-rrr-eaaat, plus he looks like someone who would poison you. en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Becky:

WFMU is grrrrrrrrrreat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Handy Haversack:

All my Top Secret characters worked for the AEC.

Thanks, Mr. Finewine and Matt! Heck of a show. All good luck in the bubble, Becky! Again, super nice to meet you last weekend.
