Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Hey Hinky-Dinkers. Lets make the next 3 hours verrrry profitable for our beloved FMU-GTDS.
@ glenn. I looked at nyc.gov for the city run rinks. Counted 8 that I think are outdoor. Then you add the one at Rock Center cant think of any other outdoor rinks. You might want to check Yelp but many of those would be indoors

@ljfw - it's my Friday prompt to get stuff done and wrap up.

That said, there are a couple shows I'll gaze a lot at birds and the breeze. So not to discount the value of time spent in unconscious processing.
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:39pm KevinfromBayRidge:

@glenn . There are definitely some smaller ones that aren't city run like one at the Mus of Nat History. Guess I'm not focusing on ice after spending 5 weeks trying to avoid it in SE FLA.

My gateway show was Wasted Vinyl that I tuned in back in 1987, when I started living in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and communted into The City. Somewhere, I have an old WFMU listener's guide with the 7 Wonders of New Jersey, like the Mysterious Hyphens of Ho-Ho-Kus, or the one strange factory that actually emits pleasant aromas.
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:46pm northguineahills:

I remember reading about WFMU djs in some zine around '97. In '98, my job (while graduating university) was the only place w/ the bandwidth that could actually sometimes stream the primitive tinny WFMU stream at night. Moved here in 2000 for grad school, and the rest is history.
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:47pm pacific standard simon:

Belinda & Hova (Greasy Kid's Stuff) sucked me into WFMU like a monster vacuum cleaner. Sure wish they were on the Drummer stream these days.

In grad school, I'd take breaks from study by perusing the playlists (couldn't stream).
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:50pm LovecraftDude888:

Actually it can be found out on L.I. in Riverhead..hehe well it's not called Atlantis anymore. spinning plates? far out! I was shaving my awful face, then having lunch and doing coffee
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:51pm Alex In Illinois:

After I had lived in the Chicago for over a decade, and streaming radio stations started appearing, it was like 2005 or something, and I thought: "What was that station out of East Orange New Jersey? Hmm WFMU, I wonder if they are steaming". Then I did a search and found it, tuned it in, and Give The Drummer Some was playing and I thought: "Wow! And they are the best streaming station in the World!"

  Fri. 2/28/14 12:53pm LovecraftDude888:

Glenn hell the NYC tourist .gov sites should have all that info...esp. re: the Central park rink if there is one still, and the midtown one at Rock Center is always going I think
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:53pm Brian in UK:

A funny thing happens some times when the stream dips out. It rebuffers and comes back as the main station programme ie if it were Doug's show it would change to Keili's. Any one else have the same effect.
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:53pm LovecraftDude888:

a few ice rinks out on LI too, but most pay at least to some degree, or part of the LI parks depts. etc.
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:53pm Stanley:

I found WFMU via a link on the fansite Beefheart.com. It described it as the 'best station in the world'.

Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Actually, there is a streaming outfit in the Aussie outback that's better. But then again, it involves standing in an actual stream. And there are poisonous snakes and stuff. We are at least much safer.

In dialup days there was WNUR out of Northwestern U in Evanston, WWOZ out of New Orleans, and then, what the is this? WFMU in Jersey City.

i had heard fmu once or twice during time home from college, but it was on sept. 14, 1992, the first day of my first real post-college job, when i was immersed in it. my new boss said, "i listen to this weird college radio station. if it ever bugs you, i can change the channel." it was a touching-the-monolith moment. i was pledging by the next marathon.

No, you are blameless, Uncle Michael, and I apologize for inadvertently causing you consternation. I was just making a general remark about supermarket usage fail. I would never stoop to criticizing your grammar. That would be bush league.

Apropos of nothing, it's likely that Queen Street has changed quite a bit since I was last there, in the 1990s. Nothing but hookers, donut shops and banks back then — and yes, I see the correlation.

back from the big freeze. Brother John was part of my gateway into good FM in 1969. He was a DJ on WABC-FM which soon became WPLJ. Amazingly, it was a great freeform station for afew years. After that I had to wait for FMU
