Too Much Information is the sober hangover after the digital party has run out of memes, apps and schemes. Host Benjamen Walker finds out that, in a world where everyone overshares the truth 140 characters at a time, telling tales might be the most honest thing to do.

...Others called 'pledgepleeding' - ?

The intro song is always great!
Hey BW, Therese and everyone!

We're no one's pet project!

@: Danne D :
- Purple Hearts - !
- Wounded in action for Listener Supported...
- Wanted to ask during previous Show - but ended! Re WFMU History - how do you feel about FMU's wiki - ? : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WFMU
- Fair & Balanced - ?
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: If it isn't, then we will just WOW! everyone until no one could possibly write a bad Wiki entry on us! :)
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:16pm Danne D:

@RR1163 I think the WNYE is not at the 91.1 frequency
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Pledge for WFMU! Our hosts would rather go scarfless than dip into station funds!!
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:18pm Danne D:

@RR1163 I also protest the lack of mention of Aimee Mann
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:19pm G:

What's a "land line"? :p
  Mon. 3/4/13 6:20pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

- My 1st Marathon - !
...One presumably needs a Profile Page to get a heart - but matters not. I'm demographically a bit on the Working Poor side - so I'll be coming in @ the bottom
- but Coming In for WFMU nevertheless - !!!
- What is always said about Listener Supported is that if every Listener actually did *something* - it would add up quite tidily...don't know if that's as true of FMU as NPR - but I'm sure it's relevant...
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: As a geographer I would have to guess a barrier island--a "line of land", perhaps... ;)

Underneath the underground
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:22pm Danne D:

@RR1163 any and all support for FMU is appreciated :) Profile page is mostly harmless to be honest.
FMU has an amazing supporter base IMO and from what I understand the flake rate on pledges is very low when compared to most stations.
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:22pm Danne D:

But whether it's a little or a lot it all helps :)
  Mon. 3/4/13 6:23pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

...Point of Wiki is you can jump in & alter it, no?
- altho' perhaps not relevant to y'all
- but that person on previous Show's Comments might have benefited from the info...
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:23pm Sigurdur:

I agree with danne D
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Donations harness the good will you have for FMU, and puts that into usable ACTION!
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:24pm Sigurdur:

just putting it out there
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:24pm sFrances from VA:

BW: as always, the photography books you reference sound divine. Holding off on pledging :( until I get a better grip on employment which could happen this week!

I *did* donate muchly as an unemployed listener during the last fund drive/extending through Sandy...I'm not a total mooch, just a total (broke) fan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/4/13 6:24pm Therese:

$15 gets you in the running for the Lavender Diamond cd! $75 gets you Benjamen's premium!
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:25pm Danne D:

lol RR1163 this is true, but I'm at work ;o) But the info on there is pretty straight up it seems. Tons of history to the station - really feel like it'd be hard to put it all together to be honest.
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:25pm Danne D:

@RR1163 not sure the listener you mean. There also are FAQs on the FMU home page :)
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

  Mon. 3/4/13 6:27pm Mary Wing:

Benjamen, Therese's mic level is a little lower than yours.
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:28pm Danne D:

People give according to what they can - not everyone is in flush circumstances. FMU understands that :) But please give what you can afford to :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/4/13 6:28pm Holly in NC:

@RR1163 -
Every penny counts. And folks get it - everyone's fully aware that a $15 pledge may mean that *you*gave up something equivalent to someone else donating $1500. No aholes here.
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:28pm Danne D:

the station runs on a seriously lean budget and it really really really stretches dollars as best it can - in many cases it's amazing what they are able to do

Amazing grand prize from @dashwoodbooks 1 dstrettell.com/byways-and-thr… 2. dstrettell.com/amateurs-lover… 3 dstrettell.com/pul-ke-niche-b… Win ALL 3! @wfmu 6pm
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne/Holly: How much in $$ does WFMU mean to me? I'd have to win the lottery or strike it rich before I could donate THAT much (same goes to most listeners here!) So until that day, we give what we can!
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:33pm Danne D:

WFMU - sequester free radio. No seriously. WFMU's listener-supported status keeps it free of the kind of petty political squabbles that likely are threatening other stations. But that independence and the strength that goes along with it only happens because of listeners who pledge and donate to WFMU :)
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:33pm Danne D:

@M_f_S I've already told Ken that if I ever ask him for a private talk in his office it means I hit the lottery and will be writing a check.
  Mon. 3/4/13 6:35pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

...I mean tonight before 6 P.M. on Scott Williams - the subject of FMU History came up for a while...altho' looking @ the Archive Comments now it's hard for me to make out whom you were Replying to precisely - ! I felt I'd learned a good bit from the wiki page *myself*...FAQs - Home Page - interesting...
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

HUG us baby, several more times!

@Danne: I look forward to hearing Ken's squeal of delight from here--whether because of you, I, or anyone else! :)
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Heading home now, have a great evening! Keep on pledging!
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:37pm Danne D:

If my math is right, WFMU's total budget is around 4% of the total budget of the largest public station in the area (which will remain nameless as that's not the point). The point is WFMU does a lot with a little - but it needs that little to survive :)
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:38pm Danne D:

@RR1163 I don't even consider myself an old hand - there's folks that have been around the station for like 30+ years.
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 6:38pm Danne D:

@RR1163 I consider it the luckiest of things that I grew up (and after college stayed) in the area that WFMU's radio range covers.
  Mon. 3/4/13 6:44pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

Holly informd us the other evening her car just had a seizure - & *she's* got a Purple Heart - !
...The Sequester-less nature of FMU is one of the things I learned from the wiki - I'm interested how the FAQs compares for refering/intro'ing other people to WFMU...so will check that...

@RR1163 :) WFMU supporters are a hearty bunch - and not just Tuesday's at 7pm :)

Therese checks out the fine photo books you could win...

It's really quiet in here, pledge now pledge now PLEDGE NOW!

Whoa! Skirkie and Meghan in that picture too :) #celebrities
Avatar Mon. 3/4/13 7:00pm Danne D:

Look at Meghan coming it to help out on a day when she's not even co-hosting :)
