  Sun. 3/6/11 12:11am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

WFMU needs sardines, and pork and beans.
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:12am Joe McG:

Alright, Joe & Mike! Pledge for the cute boys!

This steel drum track is most excellent.
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:16am Kenzo:

There's an awesome steel drum orchestra, buncha young people in my West Indian Brooklyn neighborhood, who rehearse in an outdoor space near me. It's always a delight.
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:20am bennett4senate:

+10pts for steel drum Meters covers
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:21am Julie:

Yay for the fish hat! Put one on Scharpling :)

YAY FISH HATS
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:23am Kenzo:

Hey Joe! You want me to fix that pledge phone # typo in your earlier comment? :)
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:23am Julie:

No one wears a fish hat like Bridget!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:24am Joe McG:

Go for it, Kenzo! I'll give you a fish hat!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:25am Mike Sin:

;-P
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:25am Fish:

Go fish, you fish!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:27am Julie:

It was the hat fumes..he's been wearing that thing since last night..
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:28am Ike:

I've been missing out on these scented hats. Did a fish-loving millionaire issue you a pledge challenge or what?
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:30am Skirkie:

I'll take that as a compliment as well.
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:31am Bridget:

thanks julie! I couldn't really smell it when i was wearing it, sort of.
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:36am Julie:

I think you need to be 21 and older for this premium!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:36am Joe McG:

I never thought of that! It should have a warning label on it!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:37am Mary Wing:

"I'm arriving! I'm arriving!"
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:38am Juaneco:

Hide this one from Keili!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:39am lauren berry:

heard the premium, quality!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:39am kiemzi:

joe, please mail your premium in a plain brown wrapper.
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:42am Joe McG:

Good idea, Kiemzi!
  Sun. 3/6/11 12:46am Joe McG:

Hi Joe!
I already ordered your Single File Vol 2 (as if TWO will be enough!)--what prizes are on the docket tonight?
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:14am kiemzi:

don't i know it.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:14am mike noble in dc:

you should encourage more volunteers to show up with stuff they stole from their offices.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:14am kiemzi:

(re: shredding)
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:15am Matt from Springfield:

Ah, the last thing you played and those Funky Fräuleins! Is the Snowboy DC classics being given away tonight? As a Metro resident I would pledge now if I'm in the running for that!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:15am Kenzo:

Joe's show has been perfect music for going through the smattering of misplaced points on the marathon map (how'd Highland Park wind up in Saudi Arabi??) and moving them where they should go!
http://wfmu.org/marathon/map.php
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:16am kiemzi:

good idea, mike noble, but we don't have offices. (re: volunteering/funemployment)
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:16am Matt from Springfield:

@mike: The "nobody'll miss it" standard for WFMU donations! IIIIIIIIII Like It!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:18am mike noble in dc:

THE BIRDS is one of my favorite plays...
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

@kiemzi: FUNemployment! I didn't like when they referred to this as a "FUN raiser" on the front page--because I use that term when you go to a fundraiser, but don't give money! This is serious! Give your FUNDS if you haven't already, people!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:19am Mr. Jinks:

Joe loves meeces to pieces!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:19am Wendy del Formaggio:

Aww shucks, thanks! Funky Fräuleins is perfect for me for so many reasons: German popular music, disco, women singing in a language I don't understand! Thanks, Joe!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Terre!
Hot toddy--tea lemon honey and bourbon will help your throat out!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:20am mike noble in dc:

maybe i should have waited to pledge. the chick on the cover of that saigon rock comp kinda looks like my mom circa 1968.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:22am Joe McG:

Geez, Mike, your mom was cool AND hot!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:22am Mike Sin:

Get in the running for 2LP Saigon Rock n Roll -- just pledge at least $15
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:24am Joe McG:

Amazing Vietnamese rock and soul from the early 70s!~
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:25am mike Van Laar:

Great show guys! Jailhouse Jenkins is hitting the sack, but keep fighting the freeform fight tonight!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:26am mike noble in dc:

$40 on ebay
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:29am Joe McG:

Thanks for the check on that, Mike! It's a great LP and getting more and more rare. AND you get to support FMU!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:34am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

You are correct, Joe. THAT'S not wonderful. Every listener should chip in.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:35am hugo chavez:

can i give the station some money on behalf of me and my amigo muammar?
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:36am anthony kiedis:

give it away give it away give it away
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:37am yair yona:

good morning from israel. i'm hungry. anyone brought a sandwich?
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:38am Helpful:

What about all the sand which is in the Sinai Desert?
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:38am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Thaaaaaank you all! WFMU is sublime, and Sublime Frequencies and the Bishops are earnest supporters of a station that matters so much.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:38am mike noble in dc:

wfmu is marching off to war!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

@yair: holds sandwich up to computer monitor. Well not really even that...
@Mike Sin: I love Joe's Single File! I gladly support him for embodying REAL free-form! He's only ever had a theme once or twice!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

I got the first Single File premium last year and I still listen to tracks from it often! And this is on top of trying catch every week's Single File--so pledge for Joe's Single File Vol 2 premium! I have, and anxiously await it!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:42am mike noble in dc:

is a new android app coming? i can no longer get wfmu over cell networks, only wifi.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:43am yair yona:

that's exactley how i use it. I just made a change in the deal of my mobile company, to allow more data time, just so i could listen to fmu!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:44am yair yona:

it is.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

Awww, the ARCHIVES!! That's half the (already very high) value of FMU!
Did you know...I actually first heard of Joe in Fall of 2009, some months after I started listening to this station online, when I Google-searched for some obscure song, don't remember the exact one, and I saw a WFMU playlist with a song by that artist. Who else but Joe "Funk" McGasko!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

I didn't catch Joe live so often then, he was still 3-6 a.m., but he quickly became one of my favs. All these FMU shows are great, but Joe's entire show I tried to listen in Archive every week. 12 to 3 has made it easier to comment and enjoy LIVE.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:47am Mike Sin:

Come on people -- Get strong now and pledge! 800-989-9368!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:52am Mike Sin:

$75 or higher gets you one of Joe's premium plus puts you in the running for the grand prize -- 6 LPs from Mike Sin's collection: Raspberries, T. Rex, Utopia, Rascals, Knack, Mott the Hoople!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:53am Joe McG:

$15 gets you in the running for "The World Is a Monster"!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:55am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Quick shout out to the remarkable phone pledge volunteers. Fine fine people.
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:59am Joe McG:

Thanks for reminding me, Adam! I'll do that next time we speak!
  Sun. 3/6/11 1:59am mike noble in dc:

nazario scenario!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:03am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Thank YOU, Joe. I don't know who I spoke with, of course, but what good people.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:05am Mary Wing:

Bah! Mike's mom gets in a zinger!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:07am yair yona:

http://www.npr.org/2011/03/05/134256592/whatever-happened-to-the-audiophile&sc=fb&cc=fp
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:10am Mike Sin:

A $15 pledge gets you in the running for the book "Perfect Sound Forever"!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:10am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

I'm going to go out and purchase this book. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Giving to WFMU is money far more wisely spent than that of tuition towards my university education. True.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:10am Julie:

Make Amanda work! call 1-800-989-9368
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:12am Joe McG:

You'll love it, Adam!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:13am Estelle Reiner:

I'll have what she's having.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:18am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

I'm not ashamed to say it: I've fallen in love with WFMU. Haha.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:22am Mike Sin:

$15 gets you in the running for "Crazed Fruit" DVD!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:22am Joe McG:

Very cool movie on Criterion!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:24am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Also check out Funeral Procession of Roses. Great influential Japanese film from 1970.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:25am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

...but first PLEDGE! Wouldja?
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:25am Julie:

Love with WFMU is not unrequited! They love you back!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:26am Joe McG:

I haven't seen that one, Adam! Do you know if it's Netflixable?
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:27am Julie:

WOW I think I need to dance now
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:30am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

I think it is, if memory serves, but the print is very rough. The version to watch is the Eureka Video release, but I think it might only be out in PAL/region 2 format, so region-free player might be necessary. I'll check Netflix now.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:31am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe, just 'bout to make a second pledge. Is that Amanda from Doug's show on Friday on the 'phones?
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:31am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Also, Eureka lists it as Funeral Parade of Roses.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:33am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Not on Netflix, but I think I picked it up brand new for less than $20.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:34am Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

Thank you, Julie. Love you all.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:37am Julie:

Yep that's our Amanda!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:38am Brian in UK:

Good work everybody in the back room.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:38am Mike Sin:

75 or higher gets you one of Joe's premium plus puts you in the running for the grand prize -- 6 LPs from Mike Sin's collection: Raspberries, T. Rex, Utopia, Rascals, Knack, Mott the Hoople!
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:46am Brian in UK:

Thanks for all your work this year, Joe. Shame 'bout the time change cause I have to listen to the early parts on archive. Ofcourse that is one of the stunning parts of FMUs appeal that it is all there at the press of a button. Along with the search facility. So there is no reason people not to pledge NOW.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:48am Brian in UK:

Just copped a copy of Willie Wright. Thanks so much for hepping me to it Joe.
  Sun. 3/6/11 2:49am Joe McG:

My pleasure, Brian!
  Sun. 3/6/11 3:01am Brian in UK:

The story doesn't end.
