So I guess what Ken is saying is that WFMU is here to chew some gum and kick some ass, and they're all out of bubblegum.
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 9:27am herb.nyc:

wfmu being held together by *used* chewing gum? ask joe mcgasko, he was playing alotta BUBBLEGUM POP last thur morning. (i now go into jewish grandmother mode: *if* people can give 1% extra above their pledge, that would help extra above. i've been doing so for a few years now; i simply buy less gum for myself. just a thought.)

The only thing that's unpunk would be to allow others to affect whose music you dare to like. Like Julianna and don't give a damn, and you'll be punk.

"What the hell is wrong with them and what the hell is right with us?" Liz asks. Well, WFMU is freeform and completely awesome and NPR has hokey, trite programming like Dave Mattacks Band playing John Denver covers. FMU isn't afraid to sonically kick your butt or weird you out; whereas at NPR "life is good".
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:03am Dan B From Upstate:

I want to use a part of my swag for life to pledge during this show. Can i just pick bill me later so I don't have to enter my credit card info again?

sure thing, ken! (do i REMOVE old app and INSTALL new app???)
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:04am steve:

herb - are you talking about comments on wfmu.org or on the app? comments on the iphone on wfmu.org are same for me, but never any issue with comments on the app.
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:04am Liz Berg:

Yes, Dan B! Just choose send me a bill and let us know it's part of your Swag for Life pledge.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 10:04am efd:

Herb, are you having that problem with the WFMU app or when you're looking at a playlist page on a mobile web browser like Safari? When you mentioned it to me before I thought you were talking about looking at the web-based playlist page on the web.

I wished the new app would fix the annoying bug that make it crash every time i put my ipod to sleep, but not this time, I can only hope Apple can do something about it before I change to Android. WAIT! I don't want to spend more money on electronic devices, I rather give to WFMU!

I missed the "devide-to-shows"-option-button while doing my main online-pledge.
Is it possible to devide afterwards?
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:22am Fernando M P:

@herb.nyc Thanks for that, but I don't really want to change systems, but I believe Android users are not having trouble running WFMU app as I'm since Apple released iOS7.

@Steve I keep drawing the little heart on my display screen next to my avatar but the comments keep moving. Am I out of luck because I pledged by phone?

Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:29am Fernando M P:

I have emailed Ken about the app crashing bug. He told me this bug is not occurring on all iOS7 devices, just on my iPod as far as he knows. So it's most likely Apple's fault.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm 98% sure that the heart is keyed off your listener number, so once your phone pledge is entered into WFMU's computer database then the heart should appear.
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:30am Mike East:

@Ken - It was definitely louder than usual last night. This morning seemed slightly better than last night, but still present. You were good with nachum this morning. I tolerated the hi pitch squeal to tune in.

My heart appeared instantly, the moment after I pledged.

@EFD thanks. I'll keep watching but it never showed up after a performance space donation w/listener number.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 10:32am efd:

@Whooda, when you go to your Profile Settings (link at very top of page) and click the Private Info tab (top right), is your listener number on that page? If not then that could also explain the lack of heart.

@Whooda: I think efd is right, but for that to work you need to put your listener number in the "Private info" tab of your profile. If it still doesn't work, ask Joe McGasko

this is kinda kute: i work at city college of new york and 1 of the orthodox math profs donates to wfmu's nachum show (he has no time for wfmu's rock aspect). i routinely leave stereo on overnight and one marathon, i awake to nachum. he's rattling off a bunch of donor names and he mentions my math guy & wife. great!

@Whooda: I think the heart will take extra time to appear for phone pledges, since the cards with the pledge info won't be entered into the computer immediately. It may take a few days. Also, you might want to check that your profile settings don't have the "never show my heart" thing selected.
Avatar    Mon. 2/24/14 10:34am fred:

@Whooda: there's also a "Pledged heart" box at the bottom of the "Public profile" tab, make sure it is not checked, as it hides the heart
