@MONEYBAG$: TBH, the 96% is pretty good. And straggler pledges come in during the post-marathon days. So consider it all good.

Matt, i have "issues" with the (over)production on about 1/3 the ATMP album; yet even so it's one of my favorite albums of all time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/21/16 12:14am Ken From Hyde Park:

Yep, the last couple of years, at least, it's taken a couple of extra days to achieve the goal.

Hopefully, we will see the caveman become a DJ within the next week or two.

I think the goal was hit during the sinfonia 2 or 3 years ago, when Ken was dressed as Cher

It's an excellent album coela! Phil Spector has over-produced parts of his output in every era, but the ATMP songs are so great to begin with! And the heavy-production does work out for some of them.

just what i think Matt! most of it's dense, but that works well for much of it. i just would like to hear the individual instruments a bit clearer sometimes.

Therese cohosts with Gaylord, then sings at H&F, then sings backup, then dances, and now hosts a show. IRON WOMAN.

Interesting. This is essentially just a Bombay cover of "One Way Ticket".

I dream about hitting the lottery and pledging the marathon the full budget, on the condition that the station carry on with the marathon as usual and not reveal that the station is fully funded.

@pacific standard simon: I'd wager that you're not the only one who has made mental lottery plans like that. Because I have too.
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:21am Matt from Springfield:

@steve: Typically we end up a few thousand short at the Marathon's end, but early in the next week we cross the line. A few years ago we did make it during the Grand Finale, and that was the first time in a long time.
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:21am fleep:

@pss Same basic dream, but I'd get a new transmitter and patch up the building so it doesn't leak.

@fleep: Ken once had a webpage about major donations, should one arrive. It prioritized about $250k on the building physical condition, other expenses and possible grand plans for "surplus" cash. I'd like to do the same thing, and make sure the Marathon still goes on as usual to fund day-to-day operations here.

i fondly recall again the year wfmu fell short and Vin Skelsa, who was at kroq at the time, i think, got his listeners to donate to fmu. the goal was reached the next morning.

That's the great thing about not depending on corporate sponsorship -- we can hang on until one of us hits the lottery, or dies with a will benefiting the station.

     Mon. 3/21/16 12:31am Listener Robert:

As I mentioned in the other thread, it occurred to me a couple days ago that had I been in charge 30 yrs. ago, I'd've been a total chicken about $, taking care of what seemed to be obvious necessities, and WFMU would never have grown into the enterprise it is, and probably would've disappeared by now. Auricle's always been on the edge with what they seemingly couldn't afford, and you see the results: a glorious outlet of 2 regular stations, 1 xltr, 1 on-channel booster, not just 1 but several streams, archiving, the FMA, outreach to other startups & patch-ups, a performance space...and some physical plant that's been advertised as in need of repair for some time. It's risky, but the risks have paid off in the past.

And now how'm I going to get to sleep?

Yeah, good luck with searching the YLT. I managed to record 2/3rds of the show this year before it crapped out on me.

  Mon. 3/21/16 12:45am P-90:

See, if someone already HAD won the lottery, and funded an entire marathon's worth on the condition it be kept secret, we wouldn't know about it...
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:47am Matt from Springfield:

I hope to be "pleasantly shocked" by that news when we reach 100% (every year I wish so!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:47am pacific standard simon:

I haven't finalized anything either. Matt Fiveash, Michael Shelley, and Rex are always on my short list. That leaves 9 more choices.

Andrew you silly goose -- just do it!

I like me the way certain workplaces have common names. Like WFMU has a few Matts. One place I worked at had 3 Courtneys. Another had a handful of Laurens.

@P-90 until it got spent on something worth 1.2M, that would kind of tip it

Every year I expect Therese to put Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music" on at 2am and go home.

Not really. But I wouldn't blame her if she did.

everywhere I've worked has had a plethora Ians and a gaggle of Johns, not a single Matt though
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:54am fleep:

FMU also has a herd of Jeff (the plural of Jeff is Jeff).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:54am Caryn:

@Matt: that's what I do. I think I may have managed to narrow down my choices almost to the finals, but there's 5-6 shows where I need to double-check things. There's plenty of almost-rans, which I'll then hope are available as warehouse items next year.
  Mon. 3/21/16 12:55am JakeGould:

FWIW, WFMU has some solid Matts. I've known more than a few crappy Matts in my life so this gives me more faith in Matts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:56am Andrew Waterloo:

I'm usually the only Andrew at work. There is an Andrew in my building, my ex married an Andrew on my birthday, the guy who bullied me in highschool was named Andrew, and now there's another Andrew in Waterloo lurking in WFMU land. There have been others, but the story doesn't need to be too long.
  Mon. 3/21/16 12:56am rw:

Gaggle of Johns... I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:57am Andrew Waterloo:

I haven't done anything with choosing premiums this year. It will be an adventure though.
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:57am Matt from Springfield:

So many almost-rans! I think it takes 3 years to be released from the Prize Warehouse, I saw 2013 premiums this year.

@Raika: Any younger Millennials at your workplace? There should be a plethora of Matts in that age bracket.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:57am pacific standard simon:

I did far less well on the prizes this year than I did last year, and I found that I didn't care. The Kool-Aid is muy delicioso.

WFMU has a couple of Joes. And a Jo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:57am Andrew Waterloo:

Yah, I'm still waiting for Liz Burg's Robot Dance music thing to show up in the warehouse.
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:58am Matt from Springfield:

And yes, unlike herd of Jeff, multiple Matts are Matts. It's plural in English (though "Mats" is singular in Swedish, isn't it Caryn??)
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 12:59am Matt from Springfield:

@BGZ: All of them now pushed to Monday! Joe McG, Joe B, Jo Firestone.
And Joe Duffy, though he doesn't have a show (BUT! ...he did appear on mic on amEdeo's show, which was in the early hours of MONDAY!!!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 12:59am pacific standard simon:

WFMU has a vast host of vegetarian DJs. That's the main thing. It's amazing.
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 1:00am Raika:

Only one millennial, Matt, a girl though, everyone else aside from me and her is 40+. Just doesn't seem to be a common name around here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:01am BadGuyZero:

I pick up the premiums for my favorite hosts' shows during the marathon. If I later discover a good premium I missed I'll get it as part of my silent fundraiser swag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:02am Andrew Waterloo:

Workplaces need more young people. It seems we spend a lot of time bitching about millennials while forgetting they're juniors

My listening always tends to be closer to the midnight hour and beyond.. less listeners/pledgers I imagine..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:13am BadGuyZero:

@MONEYBAG$: Just about every year I get a prize and have no idea which show it's from. There's a few shows I pre-pledge to because I'm not able to listen to them live. Sometimes I forget to listen to the archive of the show. So I always assume the mystery prize is from one of those show.

I've won prizes on shows of Irene, Keili and Mayuko. I just noticed the pattern.

yeah, i may've won something by accidentally pledging to "sinner's crossroads".
-i don't mind that i donated to Kevin; but that kind of mishap + (no pun intended!) computer AND internet problems resulted in my not pledging to some shows that i definitely had planned to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:15am BadGuyZero:

You've had a long day, Therese. You co-hosted Gaylord's show, then sang at the Hoof & Mouth [you were great, by the way!], and now you're here doing your regularly scheduled show. Thank YOU, Therese!

heads.

the best prize I ever won was a Jandek DVD autographed by Irwin
  Mon. 3/21/16 1:18am rw:

Thank YOU Therese! We love you too!

I'm exhausted after two weeks of FMU marathon and all I did was enter my credit card number a few times.

Oh... great (to me at least) mystery prize story. One day I was volunteering at the station over the Summer last year and my job for like the first hour of the day was to figure out how to wrap and pack this MASSIVE 10LP Merzbow box set prize!

The best part is Scott or Joe called the guy who won it to make sure he wanted it, and he said he'd never heard of Merzbow but did some experimental music himself and so yeah he wanted it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:19am pacific standard simon:

I had a cold during the first week of the marathon. Most of my pledging was during the second week, and I couldn't often listen. On the final Sunday, I drew a line -- no calls from work.

@steve: Those are great movies. I highly recommend watching them in Blue-White-Red order. When I lived in Seattle the Varsity Theater showed the trilogy one Saturday. I sat through it twice!

One of the stories I heard at a festival last year was "his wife took his car in because it sounded like something was wrong, it was just a Merzbow CD in the player"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:22am pacific standard simon:

That Harpers Bizarre version of "Knock On Wood" was ass-kicking. Thanks, Therese.

it was goofy and entertaining 'Handro! if it gets posted i want to revisit a bit of it; also i don't know how much of it i missed because of internet trouble here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:24am pacific standard simon:

The best prize I ever won during the marathon I never got, because it was sent to the wrong address. :(
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 1:24am Raika:

That sucks. What was the prize?
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 1:24am Alejandro in TO:

oh no! internet troubles. pss: hopefully whoever it got mailed to is appreciating it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:25am coelacanth:

Andrew @1:12 i have but not in a long time. i don't pay much attention to podcasts; but i guess in that case i should, since he's not on the schedule.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:27am Andrew Waterloo:

@coelacanth. Well, it's not hard to keep up, Ben isn't really a prolific podcaster. His stuff is still excellent though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:28am pacific standard simon:

A big multi-CD weird music thing from World of Echo; I got Warehouse prizes as a substitute.

Clarence Carter lays it on!
This may be his best song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:33am coelacanth:

i did download a few podcasts recently when i was going to work where there was no internet or radio; then i ended up not working there again so i still haven't heard them.
...there's live and there's archives; then there's my own collection and my own stuff; and there's, ehem, those other! internet sources...i need more years to play with!

Been so caught up in the marathon today that I was unaware of a pending snowstorm...ugh

Clarence Carter! "road of Love" is also spectacular!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:35am Andrew Waterloo:

there's WFMU, podcasts, and all the stuff I buy because of FMU and podcasts, the FMA, and all the stuff I already have. My mp3 collection is spectacular on shuffle though.

I wish there was a snowstorm here. Bainbridge Island is north of Montreal, but we got no snow this year.

Hey Therese! Comin' down off Hoof N' Mouth and Robin Gibb is just the trick!
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 1:38am Matt from Springfield:

Have to take a listen to "Road of Love", then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:39am Andrew Waterloo:

It looks like we're getting snow here, but I figured we'd get one more storm after it all melted.

Thanks, Matt. And let me say again- your Badfinger was AWESOME!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:40am coelacanth:

...speaking of too much information!
...i find myself "reviewing" music. there's only a half dozen or so new things i've got that i've listened to repeatedly.
i don't like that aspect of so much wealth. i don't know albums like i used to.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:43am Caryn:

@Matt: just noticed your old comment. Yep, Mats is a singular.

I think I won about the same amount of prizes this year as last, but with more pledges. Got 2 grand prizes and generally excellent stuff, so I'm really looking forward to the mailing sometime in August/September.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:43am coelacanth:

what?! did someone do a badfinger song tonight?
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 1:44am Matt from Springfield:

Thought so, Caryn.

@coela: Good to know, I will! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:44am pacific standard simon:

The only things you can't get on the archives are Yo La Tengo shows, and shows where the DJ has an FCC-offensive meltdown.

WFMU's ustream account, vimeo account or YT channel will have the Marathon. Possibly all of them will have it at some point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 1:59am coelacanth:

Thanks simon and Caryn. how do find that though? via the blog?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:00am pacific standard simon:

Truth is, I haven't understood anything out of Bowie's mouth since Heroes. Crucify me for that if you like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:01am coelacanth:

i forget now, as i was glued to wfmu for a week, who played this back-to-back with "black star" by Elvis Presley.
that was interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:02am Caryn:

@coelacanth: I think Hearty's 2nd show during the Marathon had a link to one of his performances on the vimeo account, so you can find the account that way easily, the ustream account can be accessed through the playlist of any show that had a video stream this Marathon, like SUW, 7SD or Pat Byrne. And with YT just go there and type in the search WFMU (and maybe Marathon).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:02am pacific standard simon:

@coelacanth - it will be on the front page of the website. Trust me, it helps the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:04am Caryn:

But yeah, as pss said, the main page will have a link to it sometime during the next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:05am coelacanth:

Thanks Caryn.
simon, you mean the home page? if so, that's what i thought...but for only a little while.

wow, haven't heard this in a minute
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:36am coelacanth:

that's the kind of thing you find with an obscene price tag in an antique shop; or dirt cheap at a garage sale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/21/16 2:37am BadGuyZero:

I just looked for the "Space Cat" books online. The few books in the series I found copies of were in the $75+ range.
Avatar Mon. 3/21/16 2:38am Danne D:

I am exhausted but I had to pop in to give props to Therese for once again the perfect post-marathon show to kick off the return to normalcy. So so great.

And thanks to all the pledgers and all the amazing people at WFMU - just such a magical place.

(PS Hi BGZ, Tomazsy, slugluv, coelacanth and everyone) :)
