Listener comments!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 6:06am -Ken:

Morning all!
     Wed. 11/1/17 7:41am Listener Robert:

Trying to figure out the hidden message in this selection of GIFs. The station's financial situation in terms of cash on hand stinks, like fish. There's not quite a wolf at your door, but at least a small canine threatens to come thru it. You're unsure of the outcome, but try as you might, you can't flee it. It's for the birds. Give us a hand, or two, you say, but the sharks at e still circling. A kick in the head, yet you remain calm while the station burns. Some donors have taken the plunge, but it's like a couple cups full so far.
     Wed. 11/1/17 7:56am Listener Robert:

"Listener Steve" is in rehab just outside Phila. from his stroke. He can now walk & talk, though blind in his right eye, but according to his daughter, can't understand what people say to him, and has forgotten his life.

I asked him over the summer if he'd like a visit from you on your way back from the lake house, and he said no, but we should've arranged to surprise him. I'm thinking that in his current condition, maybe playing some material from "SUW" or Jim Marshall, or maybe even Nachum, could get some recognition from him.
  Wed. 11/1/17 8:01am ˨o˨o (:

Good morning, Ken, Listener Robert!

Wow, Robert. I think you are ready to solve the cryptographic sculpture 'Kryptos' at the CIA headquarters. My poor interpretation was more like 'Ken is running out of good Gifs'.
  Wed. 11/1/17 8:04am ˨o˨o (:

Let's hope Listener Steve fully recovers.
     Wed. 11/1/17 8:13am Listener Robert:

Sometimes I've felt it's a little cheesy for a station like WFMU to solicit donations for what is, after all, our own amusement, rather than, say, taking care of blind orphans in Namibia. But then I think about the many people there must be like my friend for whom just a bit of entertainment might brighten their day, and I think, sure, why not solicit for a worthy endeavor like that?

I read somewhere this theory that says that Elvis is going to be almost forgotten in two or three generations from today. That is, he's not an immortal classic artist as we would like to believe.

This is a case of bad engineering design. The paintball gun shouldn't have silencer. The silencer should be put on the person being hit by the ball. Especially if being hit in the...er...balls. You don't want to hear the yelling.

Vicki,

Don Felder is an ex-Eagle band member that made, wrote, sang or play what was the most clikey-starred song in the WFMU website: 'Heavy Metal'...until the 'Barbecue' song by Butterscott came in to occupy the first spot. So now people are divided in two camps: The Pro-Felders and the Anti-Felders. Each love to hate and undermine the other one. Because of this some historians would say WFMU is eperiencing its first civil war in its entire history.

Please dear ADF Leader. Last time I check you were saying Barbecue was the most favourited one. So where I can see the ballot papers? We need a mediator from the UN. or I am afraid we will need to nullify the election vote and process.
