Street interviews, listener call-ins, vinyl gluttery, sporadic normalcy, original floperas and fiktion, blatant talking over songs, politix, tenderness, and a vague undercurrent of angst. Right up your alley!

Artist Track Label Year Format Comments Approx. start time
  This show features a guest appearance from WFMU's Dave The Spazz! Fabio sticks around, too, and we all visit about this and that for an hour. Dave brings along some records, and the episode starts with ...
Apex  Bangin'   Options Marine Parade  1999  12"  Song at beginning and end of show.   
The Prisonaires  Walking in the Rain   Options Sun  1953  45  Dave's 50's song. I started the record too soon during Dave's introduction. Nerves.   
Rosie and the Originals  Angel Baby   Options Highland  1960  45  Dave's 60's song. Great!   
R. Dean Taylor  Indiana Wants Me   Options Rare Earth  1970  45  Dave's 70's song. Love this truly.

YEAH!! Clay and Spazz! AND Fab! Triumvirated again!
And hello Pigeonites!

@Clay: Well then, you and the Mrs. had better go over to The Spazzes for dinner then! Bring a dessert, and you two can drink whiskey together in the rumpus room afterwards! ;)

The "Ruined Upsala" photoset:

Ken came to WFMU in '83 I think, then became station manager in '85.

7. August 31, 1969:
Fearing Upsala College takeover and feeling general disgust with demise of counterculture, Vin Scelsa signs off as WFMU staff shuts down station. Upsala keeps station dark for ten months. Lou D'Antonio keeps Freeform flame burning when station resumes broadcasts.

(actually August 17 - I cut a number off there)

I'm fascinated by this bit of history. I love radio talk too. I assume I might be the only one???

Dave the Spazz RULES!!!
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Big history and freeform fan--thanks Danne.
  Thu. 6/6/13 6:14pm Nate:

Thanks Danne D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/6/13 6:15pm Carmichael:

Wow, I came to that same conclusion many decades ago. I stared at my vast amount of vinyl and thought, "What a huge pile of crap." The I found freeform paradise.
  Thu. 6/6/13 6:15pm Nate:

Great photoset Matt!
  Thu. 6/6/13 6:16pm Nate:

Dave interrogation! Lean harder!

Clay's turning into James Lipton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/6/13 6:20pm Todd76Pct:

Dave's 80's shows on WPKN in Bridgeport CT were legendary. Sometimes I'd go to bed listening, wake up in the morning, and find him still on the air. He used to play my old hardcore punk band sometimes, and our cut would be sandwiched between post-'68 comeback Elvis and Connie Francis or Don Ho or somesuch... Wonderful radio!
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:20pm uuee:

Clay, Fabio, Dave! Jean Shepherd....my favorite raconteur...Started listening to WFMU @ '72...took a long time to get to know the djs...Rix & The Duck hooked me.
  Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/6/13 6:20pm Ralphine:

Did Clay use to be a pimp like Lipton was?
  Thu. 6/6/13 6:21pm dale:

if you could wear pants, slacks or trousers - which would it be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/6/13 6:22pm Carmichael:

I thought Lipton was a whore.

Wow, what nice harmonies--and The Prisonnaires were legit, too!

I have the same birthday as George Hamilton. I've always felt special.

I've done a few marathon shifts where Crowe was the emcee :)

@M_f_S see for yourself :) wfmu.org...
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:26pm Danne D:

Favorite moment was right after the end of the marathon (Maybe '07? Maybe '05?) anyway Rix was the first show on after the marathon signed off. He started with Monk's "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". Just perfect.
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Danne! A certifiably freeform show! And great titles:
"Thirteen O'Clock Flight to Psychedelphia" :)

Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:31pm Danne D:

I like to think I took the last pledge of that last Springdale marathon (I was in the phone room). After the goal was made and everyone was celebrating the phone was ringing so I picked up and took the pledge :)
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:31pm Danne D:

(I realize that it's likely that phone likely rang again later but I'm sticking with my memory) :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/6/13 6:32pm Fernando M Pacheco:

Clay Pigeon and Dave the Spazz!!!! You guys are the reason I have to stay at home every thursday night. I've been listening to you both for some years now from Sao Paulo and you make me forget the dump I'm living in.
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Did you stay in the room until they turned out the lights? If no one else took an outlier late late pledge after you left, your record stands! :)

I think "Fish-a-ma-jig" is Friendly's, I think Tom has mentioned that, along side "Fribbles".

San Marcos is outside of San Diego. It used to be a small military bedroom community but fell apart in the 70s. San Diego has since swallowed it up.

I got into folk/bluegrass/old timey because of "O Brother"--that was when I was 15, and they went for broke, getting all the great living singers of that genre and put together an amazing soundtrack.

Todd 76% shout out! He still remembers the bands he played! Awesome! :D

Dave, I got a lot of mileage out of your chimp pics, in old LCD's

@Danne: But was it the *same* Mr. Jiggs Dave saw? It could have been Jiggs III or IV, like Lassies..

Was one of the Mr. Jiggs actually Ron Ely?

Wow, reminisces of hardcopy "LCD"s! Good display of how long you've been with FMU! :)
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:50pm Danne D:

@M_f_S I bet it was the same one. That monkey was a superstar.

@Carmichael - don't defame the host of "Face the Music" like that ;)
Avatar Thu. 6/6/13 6:51pm Matt from Springfield:

It's the exorbitant land values and rent prices in Manhattan. Maybe Ken & Andy should do more live events around Manhattan--make it more hip and drive the values WAY down! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/6/13 6:51pm Dan B From Upstate:

That Andy Breckman LCD article is a thing of beauty. I should start digging around in those archives.

Hey, that was my Dad's 22nd birthday! AND, he was working at a movie theater the summer "Jaws" came out! When I was 6, he told me about it and first explained the concept of the movie to me; how people were scared of sharks, scared of swimming in the ocean...and how people were so scared watching it they threw up in the theater, and he had to clean it up! Good times in '75 :)

The 1st white artist on the Motown label, I believe.
