I walked the sidewalks - which made it a bit easier to keep distance.

Seems like the horses are live - it says 9 minutes until race 8. I know that they were still running steeplechase races in Ireland. No crowd allowed to attend.

Ken's threat to get naked was his ultimate power over Andy on 7SD. Not sure whether Andy was seriously squicked out by that prospect or it was just schtick.
Avatar 8:12pm Danne D:

@Doctorjazz - the $120 pledge during this shift gets you into a drawing for a one-time 3 hour shift. You can do it in studio or record it and send it in - per what Ken said earlier. Hopefully he says it all again :)

Aw, Ken, don't say you "have fallen short" like it's a done deal. It's not even going to take as long with post-marathon pledging this year to see naked Ken as last year -- and last year it was just because he forgot to get dressed!

@P-90, for some reason 2017's the easiest year I can find right now for Auricle's annual financial statement, maybe because that was when they got an audit and it gives "net proceeds from special events" as $44,654 , so that should give you some idea. Record fair wasn't itemized as such.

I'll make one serious comment before getting back to my normal WFMU commentary of just pointing out songs that I like and such. There's some sort of Small Business Administration program that is supposed to roll out as a result of the coronavirus to pay for damages related to it. In the US, the SBA generally considers any employer with under 500 employees a small business. It's worth checking out, although knowing the current administration who knows what'll happen

Bikini Kill is not going to tour for now: “Bikini Kill regrets to announce that we’re postponing our NW tour. We take the health and safety of our supporters, crew, and opening bands very seriously, and given the situation in Seattle as well as the lack of information about the actual infection rate of the surrounding areas, it doesn’t make sense to us to go forward with any of the shows in the region.” consequenceofsound.net...

I think it would be frugal for WFMU to go out and do more social media networking... the more popular you are the more people will want to donate?!?...(:
  11:34pm rich:

perhaps the competitive licking part of the festival can be added to the olympics since they are still going to happen according to japan's prime minister
  11:34pm Listener Robert:

@CC, I think donations will pick up over the next year or two as some of the new programs on the alternate streams find their audiences.
  11:36pm JakeGould:

If anyone in the WFMU audience is elderly, prone to respiratory illness and at risk during this Coronavirus crisis, they should just leave some $$$ in their will to WFMU.
