Joe: I just put in a matching request with my employer for all my marathon pledges. Most importantly though, I want to adopt the 7 inch record collection at WFMU, but only if the naming placard will read "A Joe McGasko Christmas."

I tried to adopt it under the name "A John Allen Christmas" but JA rebuffed me due to what he called "the sound of ornaments breaking." Then I realized my mistake: the 7 inches are truly the spirit of a McGasko Christmas.

a suggestion for future marathons, especially the not-so-silent-marathon in fall: find a permanent spot for the phone number in the widget, or at the bottom of the page. if it's visible it's easier to remember to make the call, and navigating to the "home" page and then back ..... and it'll be helpful if the widget is faulty, too. well, all those clicks and stuff.. there, throw that 2 cents in the can..

When I was a teenager one of the local classic rock stations had a Saturday morning blues show. I tuned in once to hear the DJ back-announce, and at first I thought he was doing a bit, because EVERY SINGLE ARTIST was a white rocker-guy from the '70s or '80s.
