How many WFMU DJs have guns? I know Andy Breckman, although a Republican, doesn't has any. What about Nachum Seagull (is that how it is spelled?), Irwin Chusid ...? ANd what about the liberals and Democrats DJs?

Excellent question. It has nothing to do with party affiliation though. Not sure who has a gun other than me.

So far Bobby Cannavale has discovered a great blues singer and made him sing Twist knockoff records, been to the Exploding Plastic Inevitable Velvet Underground concerts, skipped Woodstock for his honeymoon, been to the 1973 Zeppelin shows at the Garden after which he got caught in traffic and discovered hip hop before seeing the Dolls at the Mercer Arts Center when it collapsed.

Hey, does anybody know about buying a turntable that can work on both 120V and 240V? It looks like I'll be moving to Prague this summer, and I was going to get an Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB.....I'm thinking if I buy it from amazon.co.uk and have it shipped here to the US it will come with a voltage conversion switch....maybe?

Transformers suck Cliff. They generate a ton of heat, they blow out fuses and shit. Avoid if possible or get a really good powerful and safe one.

More Japanese Music! Ken, Your show is the place to hear great new international music. But what happened to Yuka Honda? I heard her at Roulette Saturday, thanks to free tickets from WFMU. She was with Ikue Mori, and another artist- It was industrial drone music with none of the lyricism and haunting melodies that she had on her own or with Miho Hattori.

Search for SchwabbinGGrad Ballet.

By the way, this is how it is pronounced:

SCHWAB - Chabob
BING - Boing
RAD - Groar

So it's Chabob-Boing-Groar Ballet.

I know that for sure because I took a German begginners course in 1998.
