I'm usually half-asleep if I try to listen to your show, but this time, I'm half-awake, so we'll see what happens.

Last week I was having trouble sleeping at this time, so I turned to show on to see if it would put me to sleep, cuz sometimes good music does that, but last week it kept me awake instead, because sometimes that happens, too. I had to turn it off, because it was too good.

This is already feeling like a stay-awake show.
  3:06am Time Traveler:

Thanks McGroovey

Great set so far. The Farrakhan had me wondering (1) if he was still alive, and (2) why he hasn’t received any attention lately, at least in my own consciousness. A quick trip to Wikipedia provided the answers. (1) Yes, in his late 80s. (2) The official story is health issues, but I suspect his conversion to Scientology and support of Tr*mp play a big part.
  3:25am PT:

Farrakhan hasn't received as much attention because he's been accused of antisemitism and people stopped taking him as seriously. It's hard to know if he really is antisemitic or not. I don't know much about him, just remember reading about that.
  3:26am PT:

Great show DJ Time Traveler!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am mariano:

Hi DJTT, Carol, and folks. Wait, Farrakhan's a Scientologist now?!
  3:27am Time Traveler:

Thanks Ron-ji

Hi mariano!
  3:27am ron-ji:

According to Wikipedia

Thanks PT

Thanks mariano
  3:32am ron-ji:

Well, he got tons of attention for the seemingly anti-semitism back in the 80s. Negative press still counts. And the president he apparently supports makes his own fair share of seemingly anti-Semitic comments on a regular basis and we unfortunately still hear from *him.* (To clarify, I was just trying to make an observation, not take a side on him. He’s a significant part of our collective history no matter how I personally feel about him.)

I remember a good zinger Farrakhan got in back in the early 90s, during the Marion Barry scandal. For those who don't know, Barry was the mayor of DC who, during a sting operation, was caught on film smoking crack with a hooker in a hotel room. I was listening to a news report on reactions from the black community (Barry was black), and they played a bit from a Farrakhan speech. I'm paraphrasing, but he said "A longtime member of my congregation, a devout woman, asked me 'Minister Farrakhan, you're a devout man, you've been happily married for 30 years. What do you think of an elected official who uses illegal drugs and runs around with prostitutes while holding public office?' I said who you talking about, Jack Kennedy?"
  3:38am ron-ji:

I also learned Minister Farrakhan has a Twitter account, although he hasn’t tweeted in a year, and the wording of some of the tweets suggests someone else wrote them.
  3:40am ron-ji:

That IS a good one, @Mariano. He definitely had a gift for one liners. Sort of like Twitter before Twitter.
  3:42am ron-ji:

Loving this Temptations track. I am not usually listening to FMU at this hour but I may have to start!
  3:44am PT:

Why would he be into Trump?? That's so bizarre! But yeah maybe as bizarre as him converting to Scientology. ha
  3:45am PT:

Sorry I meant to write Tr*mp (I hate writing out his name too). My apologies.
  3:51am ron-ji:

RIP Bonnie Pointer. This song was my intro not only to the Pointers but to the genius of Allen Toussaint.
  3:52am PT:

Yeah me too. Love that song. Didn't realize she'd passed away... RIP
  3:53am Time Traveler:

RIP Bonnie Pointer
  3:55am Time Traveler:

RIP George Floyd gone to soon you will not be forgotten
  3:55am ron-ji:

All is forgiven, @PT. We all slip. But my thoughts exactly Re why Tr*mp for Farrakhan. I chalk it up to the same attraction that Kanye and Roseanne both feel for the guy. Maybe it’s got something to do with their all being fellow longtime celebrities with larger than life personas who are in part famous for making outrageous statements. Maybe they can … relate to him on that level?
  3:57am ron-ji:

I wanna say Bonnie died in the last week or so but I expect Time Traveler will reveal all any second now…
  3:59am Curious Tom:

Morning DJTT! This is a great set to take the edge off a miserable raining Scottish morning.
  4:02am Time Traveler:

Thanks Curious Tom

George Floyd is already responsible for so much change, and who knows what the future holds if the good guys keep the momentum going to November and beyond. Seeing the completely spontaneous uprising all over the country and the world is like watching a lion suddenly realizing its own might. It's been ages since I've felt any sort of pride in my country but these last couple of weeks have changed that.
  4:12am PT:

Great music to keep our spirits up! Thanks DJ TT RIP George Floyd (watched some of the funeral service today). Yeah, I hear ya Mariano! Def feel more hopeful.

It's amazing to think about how much the world has changed in just a few weeks, from the pandemic to now. And yet the WFMU DJs keep doing their shows every week. It's inspiring. Thank you DJ TT and Carol and all the WFMU skeleton crew from all of us listeners.
