If I'm not mistaken, I believe the Sun Ra comps for the grand prize were curated by WFMU's own The Good Doctor.

How much money until you reach 100%?

Kurt and Joe, been listening in silence here. Great fun listening to you two (and occasional guests)!

@Carmichael: click on the "pledge" button to see the current tally. Right now, $426 away

ummm ummm umm. merle haggard.
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:13pm Carmichael:

Ohh, nice trick, Fred. Thanks!
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:13pm doca:

How much money the station is needing in this funathon actually?
  Fri. 2/28/14 5:15pm Santos L Halper:

That Merle song was played by Doug or UM today.
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:16pm fred:

@doca: the same trick works on the front page for the overall goal
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:17pm doca:

I always think this song was made specially for WFMU
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:17pm Parq:

I confess, I didn't realize Kurt had done a guest shot on Sesame St.
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:17pm doca:

@fred: thanks!
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:22pm fred:

@doca: it sounds like a lot until you realize what the station does with it. Then it's really amazing what they do with it. Best bang for the buck ever
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:22pm Carmichael:

1 mouse pledge would pretty much slam dunk this!
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:24pm doca:

@fred: Yes, exactly, I don't what are usually radio stations budgets, but for me it's amazing that WFMU runs only on one hundred thousand a month
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:27pm Carmichael:

They'll be rolling in it, once Ken's Komedy Klub is finished and they bring in people like Pauly Shore and Latka.
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:28pm Parq:

This is the song she wrote about her late sister. She was in tears by the end of their performance of this song at the post-Sandy record fair a year ago.
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:32pm fred:

It's not like they were throwing money into executive compensation either. It's a labor of love for the paid staff, and that staff is tiny. Almost all DJs are volunteers who contribute untold hours to their shows, plus duties from cleaning to the mandatory prayer circle that keeps the elevator moving. Your swag envelope might carry Kurt's saliva for all you know (that may not be an incentive)
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:38pm ░╫Kℰ░:

@Doca and Fred, WNYC, the big non-commercial NPR news/talk station around here, has a massive budget and pays its chief an absurd mid-six-figure salary, yet a LOT of people in my social circle donate to them. To be fair, they have some very good programs including BBC and CBC stuff and they provide at least a few FMU DJs w/their "real" paid jobs, but I prefer to give my $$$ to FMU, a much more frugal labor of love, not a big machine full of underwriting.
  Fri. 2/28/14 5:39pm KP:

Thanks! Was impressed with Dot at the Sandy shifted record fair
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:40pm doca:

I LOVE THIS SONG!!! First listened to it here on Kurt's show
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:40pm fred:

@Carmichael: I think Ken renamed it the Khomedy Khlub in honor of Khlam. I heard from unnamed sources than he's legally changing his name to Khlen (unnamed sources=I just made it up)
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:42pm doca:

It reminds of Zumbis do Espaço, the Brazilian version of the Misfits. They have a song called "A marca dos três noves invertidos" (The sign of the three inverted nines) which is hilarious
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:42pm fred:

$131 from the goal, even nearer than 666
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:44pm fred:

$96 left!
Avatar    Fri. 2/28/14 5:45pm Parq:

We are the 99%.
