Listener comments!

  Wed. 1/11/12 6:00pm The Board:

Is target shooting allowed here???
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Detention edition...write all the listeners' annual salaries on the board.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:01pm Danne D:

I don't make any of my salary from animals.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:01pm Listener Julian:

So they're going to guess my salary while they try not to pee their pants?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:01pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Yes just dont shoot the velvet paintings
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:02pm The Nuge:

Target shooting? I don't see why not.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:02pm kat330:

Hey Danne and the usual suspects!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:02pm kat330:

We're having a really bad stream interruption problem. Hopefully it will clear up.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:03pm Caryn:

Just got the local IRS's guess about my 2012 annual salary in the mail. So this would be appropriate.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:03pm G:

No stream issue from where I am so far...
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Danne, nice call last night! (I didn't know you did politics professionally).
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:03pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Kat its fine here
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:04pm Politicians:

Voters are cattle, Danne. Let's get real!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:04pm Carmichael:

Let's get this train wreck in high gear.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:04pm Listener Julian:

Quick survey: Jew, vampire, Hindu, or zombie?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:04pm kat330:

Andy, I figure DJs/listeners take shifts using the same persona name on the various playlists. Otherwise I can't imagine so many individuals legitimately having the round-the-clock time, even if unemployed.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:05pm G:

Some of us work online. I do.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:05pm Carmichael:

How much do I make, Ken??
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:05pm βrian:

No streamus interruptus here.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:06pm Danne D:

Hi Kat 330 :)

Btw, when are the other 329 Kats goins to show up?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Who are you, again? Daytime Matt from Springfield's punched out, I'm the swing shift.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:06pm Caryn:

Didn't have any stream problems here until a few minutes ago, when the stream suddenly started breaking up. Good again now, though. The boys are gonna have "stream problems" though...
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My guesses -
Andy - $320k per year
Ken - $114k per year
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:06pm G:

They're doing the show-opening time-kill segment, in hopes of not running out of material late in the show.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julian: As a Dark Night of the Soul listener, I am already an "Upside-Down Bat", Vampire isn't much of a stretch!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:07pm Danne D:

Hi Matt - I try not to highlight my day job very much. FMU is generally a break from all that.

Now where's that branding iron of mine?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:07pm bob:

does Ken have an income outside of WFMU?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:07pm conrad:

Obama's song was Stevie Wonder - 'Signed Sealed Delivered.' I dont' know why.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:07pm Living Doll:

Isn't upside down bat redundant?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:07pm Mark in VT:

I would listen to Ken's show if I had months to live. Not saying this show isn't worth it but Ken's show IS worth listening. This one is level three dumb because of Andy.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:08pm PMD:

Whadi miss?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:08pm kat330:

@G: But people have to sleep, hopefully make meals, bathe, etc.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:08pm Danne D:

(and thanks Matt) :)

My guess is that Andy's salary is - what does unemployment pay again? That times 52.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:08pm Uneducated Guesser:

Ken's dad was well off from his work, and that's what supports Ken, and the station somewhat
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:08pm Carmichael:

Just ask 'em which Beatle they like. That'll tell you all you need to know.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:09pm G:

About to eat, actually.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:09pm Danne D:

@Mark the dumb is what keeps us comin' back :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:09pm Carmichael:

I heard that snide aside, Ken.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:10pm Danne D:

Whoa - role reversal - Andy's now the socialist
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Anytime! (And actually, I think Andy's 99 weeks ran out a long time ago!)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:10pm G:

Unemployment is based on the last 3 or 6 months of pay, by some complex formula.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:10pm Caryn:

@Danne: unemployment wouldn't be salary, though. So it doesn't count.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:10pm Danne D:

Hmm, thought they tax those benefits now, Caryn
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:10pm bob:

so Ken works for a non-profit that isn't WFMU?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:11pm Pete Best:

Funny, nobody ever mentions me.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:11pm G:

yes bob, he's around way too much to have another job
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:11pm kat330:

Break the ice by telling us YOUR salaries first.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:11pm Danne D:

Auricle Communications is Ken's employer I believe. But I could be wrong - it's confusing, sorta like the Catholic Church
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:12pm Living Doll:

Does that make Ken the pope? The Pope of WFMU? With Liz Berg as the Mother Superior?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:12pm Caryn:

Well, they tax them, but they're earnings, not salary. They're guessing "annual salary", not "annual earnings", so any money from stocks, welfare, insurance claims etc. wouldn't count.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:13pm Carmichael:

Sounds like Spike.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

In fact that makes Ken the Bishop of Auricle Communications--whose parish would be WFMU.

The Diocese of Auricle needs more parishes on the airwaves and interwebs!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:13pm bob:

I thought all WFMU staff were volunteers? guess I don't understand the workings..
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:14pm Listener Julian:

IT'S COOL TO BE SMART
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:14pm Mark in VT:

Ken should replace Andy with a vocoder as guest. Then Andy would be free to Hollywood.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Living Doll:

HE LEFT ANDY ALONE IN THE STUDIO!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Geezus:

Shut the hell up, Andy.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Danne D:

@bob - there's a very very small staff - deejays do not draw salary
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

You to video tape this show.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Mark in VT:

YES!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Danne D:

Someone should call and describe their job as soul reaper
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:15pm Caryn:

If Ken was pope, if he ever decided to retire, there'd have to be a days-long meeting of all DJs, and once the replacement was chosen, a puff of white smoke would drift out over New Jersey.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Archie Breckman whine there!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:16pm Danne D:

@Caryn - I can't ever imagine smoke in a New Jersey sky
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:16pm Danne D:

@bob - so "Staff" in the sense that Keili is staff or Terre, etc. - they are volunteers yes
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: True, when passing the torch from Ken, it should involve a high degree of solemnity, more like a pope than bishop.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:17pm Danne D:

Gee - Andy will never guess what a stagehand makes.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:17pm glenn:

i'm about to make gnocchi from scratch. wish me luck.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:17pm kat330:

Location, location, location as they say. The same profession here in Indy-ucky would pay many times less than in the NYC area,
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:18pm bob:

I see Danne - cool
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:18pm Living Doll:

@Caryn that bit of smoke would be indistinguishable from all other gusts of smoke in NJ
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:18pm Danne D:

They should have the disguised-voice callers spell what they are saying, like Dave E-M-O-R-Y
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:18pm G:

Ken et al created Auricle. Ken was the well off one, though. My best guess from seeing the inside of individual-founded nonprofits would be that Ken kicks in some trust fund money if there's a shortfall in the annual budget. He created Auricale and kicks in money because he believes in what the station does, and does it himself. But the money available for that without zeroing out the fund principle is not huge. So most ongoing expenses have to be covered by ongoing donations and grants.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:19pm Danne D:

Good Gnoch, glenn
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:19pm glenn:

why don't "right to work" states change it to "right to be poor and exploited"?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:19pm kat330:

@glenn: g'luck!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:20pm Caryn:

An acquaintance of mine washes bodies in a hospital morgue. I suspect Andy and Ken might not guess his salary correctly. Then again, even I have no clue, but I hear it's high to make up for the nasty job.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:20pm Danne D:

Best job - paramedic on Spider Man
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:20pm Living Doll:

I want that job Caryn
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: As long as it's paid hourly!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:21pm Danne D:

@Caryn - some listeners might pay to do that job (not me though)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:22pm Mark in VT:

a good glass blower doesn't pay attention to how much glass he blows and the chunk of change he makes but by how much ass he shakes
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:22pm Carmichael:

Self employed = unemployed
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:22pm Carmichael:

I guess $11k
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:23pm Living Doll:

Self employed is NOT unemployed.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:24pm Caryn:

Except on reality shows, where any contestant with that in their job title is definitely unemployed.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

The radioactive truck crash is Andy's favorite part of the series.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:25pm Carmichael:

I bet Andy is "self-employed".
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:25pm kat330:

Holy moly!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:26pm Living Doll:

That's what the band was named for L7
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:27pm conrad:

"Hatty told Matty, "Let's don't take no chance.
Let's not be L-7, come and learn to dance."

- Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs, "Whooly Bully"
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:27pm Cliff:

L7 was also a band in the 90's.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:27pm kat330:

Joey Heatherton and Bye, Bye Birdie, eeeesh...and Andy's a bit younger than I.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:27pm Mark in VT:

Are Andy's Kids L7?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, I feel that Ken was fooling with Andy!

That's telling though, if it's NOT in the UD!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:28pm Danne D:

I have that song "Pretend We're Dead" in my head now
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:28pm Caryn:

Hey, on Wikipedia: "Square (slang), from the thumbs and forefingers of two hands forming the shape "L7""
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:28pm Geezus:

Not funny. Shut the hell up, Andy.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:28pm Danne D:

Banker with voice disguise is much better - more evil sounding :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:29pm Todd 76%:

L7 is included in the lyrics to "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham & The Pharoahs. Also part of the title of a seminal Rick James LP ...oops, Conrad beat me to it...
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:30pm Caryn:

L7 is also mentioned in Rick James' "Bustin' Out" and Paul McCartney's "C Moon".
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:30pm Living Doll:

76% Todd and 24% what?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Was that annual or monthly salary for the banker?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:32pm Listener Julian:

Oh man, Andy's really waging class warfare tonight.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:34pm seang:

good point dude
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:35pm Caryn:

Man, would still be in the 99 %...
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:36pm G:

Look up Andy's Soc Sec earnings statement, and read off the salary by year
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:36pm Mark in VT:

plus this last caller has acceptance on this show on wfmu. wealth..
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: That's not public...IS IT???
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:38pm kat330:

I could write a book on how to live on that intern's salary.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:38pm Caryn:

Well, now we know why she wanted her voice changed... Keep that IRS at bay.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:38pm Caryn:

She still makes twice as much as me...
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:38pm G:

Everyone gets a Soc Sec statement in the mail every year. Are they also available online yet? If so, have Andy password Ken into the salary history.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:39pm rrg:

You're all still here? Wow.

But it's dinner time. See ya.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:39pm G:

I ate :-)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:40pm kat330:

@G: J.T. and I, too. 7SD is appointment dinnertime for us -- even our anniversary last Wed.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Just making sure you can't just look up a person's name and get all that online. If they have those online, hopefully you have to register w/ password and only see your own statements.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:41pm Caryn:

Belated happy anniversary, Kat & J.T. Hyvää myöhäistä vuosipäivää!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:41pm G:

@kat: HOW ROMANTIC!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:41pm rrg:

What'cha eat?

Chicken Vindaloo on the plate here. In ten minutes.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:42pm kat330:

Kiitos, Caryn!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:42pm J.T.:

Kiitos, Caryn! Feels like FInland here today, rainy & cold. Home sweet soggy home. :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:43pm kat330:

Yeah, well... we're in a rut of tradition. I at least wrote Ken to make sure a new show on the 4th before staying in. :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:44pm G:

leftovers tonight: tofu cubes and tomato sauce, dal long cooked in a crock pot with spices/sauce, steamed dasheen leaves. diet soda.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:44pm Mark in VT:

let's talk about how much to wfmu contribution income ratio.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:44pm Caryn:

Finally got some proper snow on the ground here, J.T. Actually feels like a Finnish winter after the ridiculous December we had.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:44pm Matt from Springfield:

19?? Is he a young Teddy Boy or something?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:44pm rrg:

Well, okay. But that sounds disturbingly meatless.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:44pm Danne D:

oof Mark, I'd rather not
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:45pm kat330:

Yes!! Mark in VT. I bet we'd win that ratio.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:45pm Danne D:

(Ps congrats Kat and JT)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mark: Yes! Gross or net income ratios? :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm Caryn:

Just finished dinner: macaroni and ketchup. Waiting for that last paycheck to turn up on my account, so I can actually fill the cabinets.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm Danne D:

Can I claim WFMU as a dependent?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm J.T.:

I'll take snow anyday over cold rain. Thanks Danne!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm Living Doll:

Teddy boy!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: No, WE are dependent on WFMU. Co-dependents, even!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm kat330:

I prepare about 18-19 of our 21 meals a week, but Wednesdays are our single concession to fast food takeout.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:46pm G:

@rrg: yesterday: homemade hamburger and pork sausage tomato sauce with store-bought pasta shells. her choice, not mine. and she's JEWISH. had to hide it walking home.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:47pm Danne D:

That happened in Sussex County :(
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:47pm Mark in VT:

so many of us wfmu listeners give way more percentage wise to income than what we make to wfmu.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:47pm rrg:

@G: Well, that's a relief.

And now it really is dinnertime. Bye.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:49pm kat330:

(and preparing 18-19 of a week's worth of meals is one key to living within that intern's salary. So is having a garden and clipping coupons, so bourgeois.)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:49pm Danne D:

really sad and a well known story here in NJ - they ordered a pizza out in rural sussex and they killed the guy :(
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:50pm G:

in rural sussex, a pizza with toppings is an average weekly household income.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:50pm kat330:

@Danne: That sounds so Indiana...awful...
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Ugh. Sick world.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:50pm Mark in VT:

I saw half an episode of Monk. That was enough.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:51pm drunken monkey:

Did they eat him w/ the pizza ?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:51pm Danne D:

Homey Homeschoolson? Is that the puppet?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:51pm G:

ZING.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:52pm Living Doll:

When the pizza guy shows up in pornos it's a happy ending
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:52pm G:

^^^^( @ Mark VT)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: On a more cheerful note, Happy Anniversary! I saw you mention that last week but I'll join the well-wishers tonight!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:52pm kat330:

Bye and bon appetit rrg!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:53pm kat330:

Thanks to all with good wishes! It was an even dozen years for us.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:54pm kat330:

(as opposed to an uneven baker's dozen)
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:54pm Danne D:

LOL @Ken - first reference to that prior show that must not be named that I've seen
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:55pm Mark in VT:

Seems Andy is bitter that he is still unemployed and never made it on Curb.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:55pm Listener Julian:

I'm still fascinated by the whole weev incident. Are we sure it wasn't just really high-level trolling?
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julian: It was high-level trolling. And in any case I'm glad it didn't last a whole season.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:57pm Caryn:

I've evidently missed a major event here with the weev thing. But I'm connecting the dots.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:57pm Listener Julian:

@Matt: Yes, it was certainly tedious.
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:59pm Mark in VT:

I think Andy goes to bed every night angry with the Larry David HBO song in his head....womp..womp..womp..deee..dee..deee..da..la..leee ..womp wopm wmop
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:59pm Listener Julian:

The Lone Ranger & Crazy 8 Show!!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Connect the dots, if you dare!!!

http://wfmu.org/playlists/WV
  Wed. 1/11/12 6:59pm Danne D:

@Caryn - http://wfmu.org/playlists/WV
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:00pm kat330:

@LJ: Just was typing that! Heh!
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:00pm Listener Julian:

They already did a whole show like this: "Voice Masking"
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:00pm Danne D:

Have a good night folks :)
Enjoy your dinner

Ignore my link, use Matt's link instead :o)
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:00pm kat330:

No, your lisp is completely disguised, Andy!
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:00pm Matt from Springfield:

See all you guys later!
Tune in next week for another Lone Ranger & Crazy 8 Show!
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:01pm Geezus:

shut the hell up andy. you have a voice that cuts through any disguise.
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:01pm kat330:

Moi!
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:01pm Matt from Springfield:

YES! Do a whole show like that!
Why thank you, Danne! :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:01pm J.T.:

Nighty night everyone!
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:02pm Caryn:

Hah! Glad I decided to skip that show!
  Wed. 1/11/12 7:03pm Danne D:

Good night everyone :)
