Poor neighbors.. my volume just went way up!
Avatar    Sat. 3/5/16 6:30pm Rob W:

Hi everybody! Sorry Bas about the level surge - I don't think I caused that. Don't know if it was universal on the stream. If anyone notices very extreme level changes (beyond the normal WFMU inconsistencies!) certainly let us know, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/5/16 6:33pm Bas NL:

No, no! It was me cranking up the great tunes!
  Sat. 3/5/16 6:38pm SeanG:

Hi Rob, great show, just wondering is there a link on the page that shows all the DJ premiums? couldn't seem to find it
Avatar    Sat. 3/5/16 6:49pm Rob W:

Hi Sean. I should be able to say yes but I can't - I'm actually not sure. Our fundraiser web pages are in flux and some pages are not yet online. Anyone know about this or have a link? Thanks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/5/16 6:51pm Alejandroool:

I think this is the link for the premiums: great sounding show RW

~ incredible music tonight! ~ thanks Rob! ~
  Sat. 3/5/16 6:55pm SeanG:

got the link! thanks Rob and Alejandroool

Cool, but what about the list of DJs' MCs/co-hosts? Is that up anywhere, or are we listeners facing mystery MC marathon meat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/5/16 7:15pm Bas NL:

Great opening track by Söndörgő!

Thanks Bas. Ike: Don't know the answer to your question. I will say, if there's anything you don't see that you want to see, you can let Ken know. But at least at this point, we DJs know very little about the Marathon web rejiggering this year.

Oops - those are the co-hosts from last year.
  Sat. 3/5/16 8:10pm geezerette:

Sounds medieval and middle eastern as well as cajun and so many other things. Very sophisticated and joyful!
  Sat. 3/5/16 8:14pm geezerette:

... I meant Sondorgo.

Courtly..bagpipes?Tapestries...Rob you are knocking me out!
  Sat. 3/5/16 8:19pm Marc Grobman:

Hi Rob, until tonight, I'd never realized how much I had been subconsciously yearning to hear a great set of East European country and zydeco. Thank you for detecting my dreams and fulfilling them with this great stuff!
Avatar    Sat. 3/5/16 8:20pm Rob W:

Thanks Marc! I guess I must have had a subconscious yearning too...

Nice review on Najat Aatabou:
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/5/16 9:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I guess something went goo-goos with the web page earlier and I was unable to post. I had a lot of fun listening to the program tonight. Good luck with the marathon activities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 3/6/16 4:03am Bas NL:

..and we're back! Thanks for the show Rob!
