Drove my son to his apparently "essential service" job this morning to keep him off public transportation. Noticed the roads were quite crowded at 0615 hours. Can't imagine all these drivers are part of the "essential services" crowd. Very strange to see as I was expecting empty streets on Staten Island.

@Earth Walker: I grew up with the Monkees on TV. At the end of the show, when they sang "We may be comin' to your town!" I always got excited - the Monkees are coming to Sleepytown, NJ to spread their high-spirited antics! Hooray! But they never showed up. That may have been the beginning of my disillusionment and loss of innocence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am LastWhiteRhino:

Maybe everyone on the skeleton crew should get a new radio name. Joe how about "T-bone" ,for you? T-bone-T-bone,T-bone !!!

Does my heart good to hear your talk-over music Joe! FMU will definitely help me and my crew get through this. Stay healthy and be safe. Thanks to all DJs whether they can do a live show or not. We love you all! Sorry to get sappy when the Au Pairs are playing. How embarrasso.
  11:24am Brian in UK:

Chresti, got a streaming cold, beautiful weather and a lot of people do not believe in staying safe. We are thick, arrogant pricks sometimes.

LOL i was searching online for cable ties, the kind you tie cables with, yesterday and this band kept coming up! I wasn't even aware of their existence previously.

Amen, HankyTee!

@Kat: you trained your google well. Mark Hurst wouldn't approve, but it does help when looking up obscure bands with search-unfriendly names

dont know about anyone else but a fresh, real dj in real time is way better than canned or synthetic stuff. very organic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Ken From Hyde Park:

Random thought - To get the station over the final $55k hump, one of the DJs can offer an extra biohazard pledge icon, similar to the ones available on the W&B, Matt, Michele, the Kens and Sheila shows.
