it's a unisex shirt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm HyperDose:

I think unisex shirts fit best. Not trying to be all tight in the chest like Michael Scott. Also longer in the back, which is great for tall people.

Andrew Waterloo - so true, so funny. Also, some of the FM DJ's have messed with their voices and accents so much to sound commercially accessible they don't even sound like humans. It is very frightening

I’ve posted this 7,8x since Saturday. I do so now. I just want/hope wfmu to get its needed money. Here:

Note- I upped my usual annual amount, due to death of any wfmu listeners (via COVID or other). This is inspired by last yr's passing of listener volunteer Bill Weber, whom I’ve never met. RIP.
