Good afternoon. I'm here, but I'm hungry, so I may have to bolt.

Always happy when I can catch your show (which isn't often enough :(), Megan. Good ol' Galaxie 500. I always forget how great they were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:07pm Meghan:

hahaha.... This is why I have my lunch prior to show.... that and it's difficult eating and DJing....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:07pm Meghan:

aw, thanks Mark!
  Thu. 1/18/18 12:07pm Mark R:

Yes but you have to eat lunch at 11:30 like the first graders.

meghan, thanks for the great show on sunday! got me through anxious parkway driving!
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:08pm βrian:

Yeah, on-air dining doesn't work nearly so well as on-air beer tastings. Those were kinda fun.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:09pm glenn:

slow and tiny? why not just call it trump's brain?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:10pm Meghan:

Drinking on air works way too well! hahaha...

thanks queems.... I love doing those reggae fill ins!

Hey there Coel!
  Thu. 1/18/18 12:28pm Mark R:

I love this Paul Simon album and I don't think I've heard anyone else ever play it on FMU. I think it got lost in the shadow of "Graceland," but it's equally great in its own way.
  Thu. 1/18/18 12:30pm Mark R:

I hope you don't stop--I hope you go til like 4 or 6 or whatever! I'd love it! (Sometimes you might have a date or whatever, though.)
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:33pm glenn:

yeah, meghan. when's date night?
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:33pm glenn:

and does jeff know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:35pm Meghan:

The date is usually work..... or me dealing with issues at home..... hehe.

hmmm. what if there was a friends remake...




and they were all wfmu deejays?
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:42pm glenn:

well, maybe except for joey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:43pm Meghan:

ha! Who would you cast as whom?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:43pm coelacanth∅:

no! stop. don't give Ken any more ideas.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:45pm glenn:

irwin is ross, obviously. frangles is phoebe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:46pm Meghan:

fascinating.... so who is Rachel, Chandler and Monica?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:46pm coelacanth∅:

there was one "friend" who wasn't a backstabbing asshole. i forget his name. (the one that's not joey or ross or female)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:48pm coelacanth∅:

oh -chandler i guess.
...so who gets to play the decent one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:48pm Meghan:

hahaha
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:48pm glenn:

in a gender switcheroo, chandler is played by meghan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:48pm Meghan:

but he's got to be dry and sarcastic
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:49pm glenn:

as i said...

Oh snap!

Well I guess I am dry and sarcastic! haha
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 12:50pm glenn:

hmmmm. although that causes problems with the chandler monica love thingy.

well, meghan, if you want to play for the other team, bronwyn can be monica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:52pm Meghan:

only if it has wood paneled walls, macrame art and shag carpeting....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 12:52pm Meghan:

Bronwyn C or B?

I have the same problem on those darn PC's! If I'm lucky, someone's already typed something like Hüsker Dü and it will autofill. Otherwise, I'm dead.

One of the reasons I love the folk art museum next to MOMA (Well, I like MOMA too).
  Thu. 1/18/18 1:02pm unlurrned:

Is this station just a sister station to WFMU? Is it a playground for those who don't have or used to or can't get a show on WFMU?
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:04pm βrian:

This is the Drummer Stream which I view sometimes as sanctuary form the main broadcast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:04pm northguineahills:

Let's just say WFMU has more talent then they know what to do w/, so they have multiple sister streams. Bonus, these streams don't have to abide by FCC standards.
  Thu. 1/18/18 1:06pm unlurrned:

So Mary Wing can now drop multiple F-bombs and talk about her sex life? I'm sold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/18/18 1:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think a Venn diagram might be helpful.
  Thu. 1/18/18 1:07pm queems:

i love having the option to listen to something different than what is going on on the terrestrial radio but with the same eclectic selection and cool values
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:07pm Meghan:

hahahaha.... The idea of Mary Wing talking about her sex life.....
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:07pm βrian:

Mary is free to add salt when needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:08pm northguineahills:

There are definitely F bombs. Also, many of these programs are djed remotely rather then at the mothership. (adds for more diversity, IMHO).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/18/18 1:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hoo boy. Imagine if Shut Up, Weirdo moved to the Drummer stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:08pm northguineahills:

I found out about that Modern Lovers track from Sloan.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:09pm βrian:

I heard "knitting for the man." Subversive that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:10pm Meghan:

I will say that I do have to stop and allow myself to say Fuck.... I'm so used to trying to NOT say it.... but I've been allowed to my entire time at the station during my personal shows.... obviously not the fill ins...
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:11pm βrian:

I'm pretty sure "phoque" is always ok, though — if you want to make reference to the French for "seal."
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:12pm βrian:

Ph bombs are ok.
  Thu. 1/18/18 1:12pm queems:

@ken i don’t even want to imagine what the phone calls would be like
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:15pm Meghan:

I like Feck.... but it sounds too close
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:17pm northguineahills:

pH bombs can hurt, though.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:18pm βrian:

We're vey polite in Wisconsin. To express shock and dismay we exclaim, "Wisconsin Tourism Federation!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:20pm Meghan:

ha! Wisconsin Tourism Federation gets a lot of love in the world....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:20pm northguineahills:

Wisconsin + tourism = "does not compute!"

/I need to spend more time in WI outside of Milkwaukee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:21pm northguineahills:

"Feck! Drink! Guurrrrlllsss!"

@NGH: Next time hit the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest or the area around Viroqua, for example.

ha! When I worked at a liquor store up in Boston, I had a customer who worked at a burrito joint around the block buy Hamms all the time. We gave him a massive discount since he always gave us free burritos.... but I was like, dude, you are paying 25 cents for a 6 pack of any beer.... why not make it good beer?!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:55pm northguineahills:

Never had Hamm's. I make an attempt to try any beer I've never tried before.

I have this !!! rekkid.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:56pm geezerette:

NGH, I'd take Meghan's advice on that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:57pm Meghan:

It was the CHEAPEST beer we had.... for 6 of them.... if that speaks volumes.....
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:57pm βrian:

I recall buying 8-packs of Rhinelander longnecks for ... $1.89! (Cheaper than beer, you might say.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:57pm Listener Bob in PGH:

I've always loved !!! (!!!) Don't generally go for anything quite so funky but I gotta submit. Love the Big Boys too, and that's FUNKY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/18/18 1:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

On the other end of the spectrum is our friend Tom Herzog, who would always order something fancy. One time where he ordered a Malt Duck, the bartender told us later "I thought I'd never get rid of that stuff."
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 1:58pm geezerette:

Hey, as a duck I take that personally!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:59pm Stevel:

Brian (and other Wisconsin types): My go-to cheap brew was Huber and (when in season only) Huber bock, priced under $2 per 8-packs of long-neck bottles. The joy of affordable alcoholism.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 1:59pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Meister Brau was always cheapest when I was doing that dumb stuff (youth)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:01pm northguineahills:

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/18/18 2:02pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wonder if there are enough songs about cheap beer to fill a two-hour theme-based radio program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:02pm Bobby Whirlwind:

Invigorating sounds thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:02pm northguineahills:

@geezerette: I like cheap shitty beer (but usually still to the good stuff).
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 2:03pm βrian:

I think Huber and Rhinelander were really the same beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:03pm coelacanth∅:

we used to get a case of 24 schmitts pints for 8 bucks, but that was some time ago.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 2:03pm geezerette:

Meghan, your show is so much fun. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:03pm northguineahills:

Meghan: Your fill-ins for Jeff Sarge are righteous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:04pm coelacanth∅:

it's all subjective. i know people who choose budweiser over other beer. blugh.

Thanks Meghan!
  Thu. 1/18/18 2:04pm unlurrned:

one more question. why is it called give the drummer radio? doesnt sound right
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:05pm Stevel:

Brian: To quibble, I believe Huber was made in Monroe. Rhinelander in Rhinelander. As far as quality, I'd say you are correct.

Cheap and often not that great, the Wisconsin beers all had a character of their own, which I still appreciate. (Go Point!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/18/18 2:08pm coelacanth∅:

back in the day Doug's show, called "give the drummer some" was on (the only) wfmu. he started and is in charge of this stream, so it's named after his show.
