  Thu. 3/3/11 6:22am Meghan:

  Thu. 3/3/11 6:25am dirty old man:

  Thu. 3/3/11 6:30am yair yona:

well - it was shot by Fmu's very own Brian Turner, so I figured it fits. Bill fits anywhere.
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:31am Dave B:

W00T
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:31am Chuck:

  Thu. 3/3/11 6:36am Meghan:

Hey Annie! Joe has no computer, so he says hi as well!
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:37am pierre:

"velvet" would that be a good idea for a theme?
i mean when all pledges are done
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:38am hamburger:

and then follow it up with some phil spektor - what with that portrait Ken promoted - from Jorge!
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:39am hamburger:

  Thu. 3/3/11 6:49am Chuck:

Like you can't find someone to give it to, Dave. *hint*
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:49am D.B. of W. in G.:

Give me a few minutes. -Germany
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:50am Dave B:

@Elwyn - this was not the pledge you are looking for.

  Thu. 3/3/11 6:50am pierre:

  Thu. 3/3/11 6:50am brtko:

Hello - Slovakia is online :)
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:58am D.B. of W. in G.:

That Novelty Songs 1914-1946 compilation is great!
  Thu. 3/3/11 6:59am Meghan:

Come on Slovakia! I know I have not received a pledge from there!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:00am Elwyn:

Somebody needs to adopt the role of official fruitcup and coffee server. I need a fruitcup!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:01am Dave B:

I need coffee!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:03am hamburger:

Dave B: Don't reck your stomach. I did that yesterday with a couple Americanos. Tea all the way!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:05am Elwyn:

Meghan's chain songs are like chain smoking... only healthier.
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:06am Dave B:

like chain mail, only stronger!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:07am eric:

Morning! Happy Marathon!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:07am procedura:

too poor to pledge
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:07am Dave B:

volume 6 to be named 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon!

mmmmm bacon.
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:08am Chuck:

All things are interlinked in some way. Especially bacon....
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:09am Dave B:

and sausages...

mmmmm link sausages.
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:10am Elwyn:

Can someone serve bacon along with the coffee and fruit cups?
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:11am Chuck:

Of course, Elwyn! Bacon goes with just about everything...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:11am Dave B:

mmmmm bacon fruit cups.

bacon is the fruit of the pig.
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:15am Chuck:

And if we use pancetta we'll have Italian, Dave!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:16am Dave B:

mmmm... lardo!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:18am Dave B:

that'd have to be one muthaf*ckin charmin pig. I mean ten times more charmin than that Arnold.
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:18am Meghan:

*giggles*
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:23am Chuck:

If it wasn't for bacon and beer I'd become a very unhappy person...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:24am eric:

@Chuck - I second that! Weighing it more towards beer, but still...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:25am Dave B:

oh, and I forgot to give props to HotRod when I pledged. Looking forward to her return in June!

WOOMP WOOMP WOOMP
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:25am Chuck:

mmmm... BEER!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:26am yair yona:

yes you've mentioned the middle east. tel aviv etc.
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:28am yair yona:

pre pledged... but I understand the hint ;)
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:31am Elwyn:

Here's more instant feedback: more Bosco, more beer! :-)
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:32am Dave B:

I appreciate the work that goes into programming UTP, not an easy task - trust me!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:33am yair yona:

pronounced as ya-eer ;)
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:34am Chuck:

Yes indeed, DB! I was blogging a version of it until too much work kept coming up. I could never get it down to less than 3 hours...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:35am Chuck:

Too many songs that I DIDN'T want to cut....
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:36am Dave B:

indeed, but that many more songs in my library - 95k strong and STILL growing...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:37am Meghan:

It really isn't! There are many times where I have to say- damn it.... fine, I'll get rid of my favorite.....
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:37am Dave B:

This Subs song has a "Message In A Bottle"-y riff to it...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:38am Chuck:

It's sort of painful to me to do that though, Meg. I know you understand...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:40am Chuck:

Something has to go, so you grit your teeth...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:41am Dave B:

ah, but by pitching a fav, you open the door to a possible new gem...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:43am Chuck:

Possibly...
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:44am Dave B:

Damn - I knew I wanted to send you one song from the old band..

Is the RUN theme going to continue next week?
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:45am Meghan:

yes it is!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:45am Mike Vl:

Wow..bringing back the mid-nineties nostalgia!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:52am Dave B:

@Meghan and Joe - DO IT NOW!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6ALySsPXt0
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:54am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/3/11 7:59am Meghan:

  Thu. 3/3/11 7:59am Chuck:

In keeping with the running theme, I've gotta dash. I've got resin casts and molds to deliver to CT. Pledge on!
  Thu. 3/3/11 7:59am Elwyn:

I want that DVD bad! Criterion = the choice of movie nerds. :-)
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:03am Dave B:

See ya Chuck.

Elwyn - this is not the Criterion Collection you are looking for. You are free to go. Move along....
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:06am mim:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:11am Elwyn:

@Chuck: See you online sometime.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:14am yair yona:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:14am jeff p:

hey, are you talking about the rush movie?
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:15am jeff p:

you'd better not be talking about the rush movie
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:15am Dave B:

@Jeff P - ha!

For my pledge, can i here by dub this the Bosco Board?
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:16am jeff p:

@Dave B her response will make the determination of the amount of my pledge...
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:16am Vilgot:

Hello people on the air,
You pronounced my name quite well on the first attempt - the t is not silent.

By the way, does my name seem familiar? The Vilgot Strömsholm memorial hall was actually named after me. I'm alive and not dying, I've just always wanted a memorial hall. :)
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:17am Dave B:

WHAT A RUSH!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0MJCYdIsWs&NR=1
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:18am Jefff:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:19am hank:

cool runnings...
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:20am Elwyn:

Has Jamaica pledged?
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:21am Meghan:

Wow, amazing Vilgot! And no, no calls from Jamaica! Mim, sadly if you pledged during Bennett's show, I don't get that one!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:24am Cheri Pi:

Good Morning Meghan and all FMU'ers, might I recommend the Mouse for life pledge? $1 a day for life, I gave up Star***cks and it was totally worth it. You can afford this!!!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:24am Elwyn:

I think it was Richard from Venezuala who adopted Bosco after I mentioned Bosco during Keili's show.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:27am Karen:

Long live Reggae!!
Hugs to BOSCO...he's my man!!!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:28am Dave B:

Can you play "MARATHON" by Rush?
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:29am Ed SKi:

Why no Rush- Marathon Man??? You should do it for your husband! Oh, i work with Jeff... Every Thurs morn.. have to put up with Meghan!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:29am jeff p:

^^^THIS^^^
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:32am petris:

run rabbit run by Smack - great song.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:33am jeff p:

$1M? I'll get right on that! I think I have that in my paypal account.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:34am Elwyn:

@Dave: I think you'll like these photos. They are my photos to gain membership to the 501st.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:35am Dave B:

OK if no Rush, how about Triumph "Running In The Night"
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:35am Elwyn:

How much $$$ would we need to get Meghan to sell out and have an all-Rush set?
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:36am hamburger:

$1 million
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:36am jeff p:

I'll donate another $50 if Meghan plays a Rush set....
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:39am Dave B:

Or... if no Rush or Triumph, how about Helix "Running Wild in the 21st Century"
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:39am hamburger:

$1,000,000 Zimbabwean is $2,763.194 USD! :O
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:40am jeff p:

omg helix!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:42am hamburger:

I don't know the band, but there's that band that's got that Tom Sawyer song. Meg should play that :P

On an unrelated note, I do hate Rush :)
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:43am Dave B:

Trying to entice those Cannucks Jeff P!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:43am Cheri Pi:

NO RUSH! If I wanted to hear Rush I would go driving around with my boyfriend right now-this is my haven, my Rush -FREE safety zone!!!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:44am Magda:

I hope my insta-pledge came in.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:44am Elwyn:

I don't hate Rush but I am interested in knowing how much it costs to make people compromise.
If Joe Satriani can make a compromise with Coldplay's lawyers, surely Mr Donald Trump can pledge to see how much it'll take to get Meghan to play that Rush set.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:44am Magda:

Morning theme park attendees.
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:45am Elwyn:

Good morning Magda!
  Thu. 3/3/11 8:46am jeff p:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:53am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:53am Magda:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:54am Magda:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:54am jeff p:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:58am Jim Devoid:

  Thu. 3/3/11 8:58am yair yona:

Loverboy AND April Wine? Heck yeah!
  Thu. 3/3/11 9:01am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/3/11 9:04am mohawkdave:

@ jeff p: loverboy--only if you wear the red outfit
  Thu. 3/3/11 9:04am jeff p:
