Good morning. Income idea: Put up a rustic tent-cabin up on the roof and rent it out via airbnb?

That is a EXCELLENT idea Ken from HP. Except for the part about the roof. And the tent cabin.

In case anybody missed the announcement yesterday, on December 1st, we lose our biggest money making program - JM in the AM - but we gain the morning drive time slot (Mon-Fri 6-9am). Ideas welcome! Pledges welcome too - we've never been broker than we are right now I am sorry to say.

Unfamiliar w/ the market you are in, but is there any competition for JM in the AM listeners?
If yes, poach talent and put it on the air 6-9.
If no, recruit talent and put it on the air 6-9.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/5/16 9:20am Ken From Hyde Park:

If PLU Vicki is available, I nominate her to provide some content. I think the listeners would enjoy a British voice and some pooeyflute whilst they're mired in the morning traffic.

OK, Philip, I am hiding you now. I tried to warn you.

Also, any morning DJ has to play the first and last minutes of Nachum's intro/outro music, as to maintain the regular stream/OTA switchover vibes that I've come accustomed to.
  Wed. 10/5/16 9:22am JakeGould:

@Ken: An idea for a morning show segment: "The Bullshit Report." There's all kinds of stuff going on in the world so the report will keep listeners up to date on such bullshit. Like Facebook's "Trending" stuff but on the radio.

Re. mornings. You certainly have enough smart-assed (compliment) host types to pull in to hook people (guessing that's still an effective approach for morning radio.) Consider showcasing a variety of other shows, hooking folks into WFMU.
  Wed. 10/5/16 9:27am Polyus:

Three hours of one of those eerie numbers stations every morning.

Also, if commuters are a main target, consider text or email-based contests or other interactive ideas.

(Tossing stuff out.)
  Wed. 10/5/16 9:28am JakeGould:

@Stevel: The catch is the show is 5 days a week and the hosts need to get up that early for the show.

Moving off the JMAM thing, how about WFMU's Dead Call Letter Office where you play the archives of defunct shows with occasional interruptions for commentary on how the show fit in station history?

Portland very briefly had great AM radio in the form of Mike Chase and Daria O'Neil. It was really funny, with original material, funny segments, a minimum of inane on-air chuckling - a female presence who actually did stuff, etc.

J&H Productions is a great idea. These are all great ideas, thank you everybody! It's sad and scary to lose Nachum but the possibilities are very very exciting. I KNOW we can find the perfect air horn.
Avatar Wed. 10/5/16 9:55am Rich in Washington:

@Rich: it took me a while to figure out that the sliver of JM in the AM was part of a larger legitimate show, since the tone is so different from the rest of WFMU. I thought it was something along the lines of the Jim Price 1-minute show.

Just an aside: When you say "WFMU East Orange", are you still referring to a filing cabinet in a dentists's office?
  Wed. 10/5/16 10:05am JakeGould:

Also, since this is a morning show you could probably get more kids to call in. Maybe a kid talent segment where they play some instrument or tell a joke.

Jones & X-Ray used to fill for JM on Jewish holidays and called it "Mayhem in the AM". That would be such a safe and boring choice.

What would a good Brooklyn Zoo show title be?

'Lemuel and The Barista'?
'Punky and The Bane'?

As for language, if you're considering Esperanto, go hard-core: Volapük.

The best food show on radio is "Good Food" from KCRW. Honestly… it's heart-felt, idiosyncratic (a pie obsession, Jonathan Gold), and intensely L.A.-centric (local restaurant picks, interviews from the Santa Monica Farmers' Market).

Hi Ken: I'd suggest a highly confrontational morning show that mixes sweet with sour. If you get an obnoxious yet hilarious host akin to Sam Kinison (without the yelling) going around Brooklyn or Queens or Bronx and pointing out dumb sh*t like $5.00 cafe au lait. A good name might b Breakfast in America/New York/Jersey Chitty. Have a Supertramp song open n close show. And include the Muslim half-a-second segment. No Esperanto though. Itll drive ppl away after the first hour.
