WFMU Fundraiser Show With MC Tamar
Please Make a Pledge Here, Thanks!





Greetings dear listeners, thanks for your support of WFMU! Tonight for the first time ever my better half, scholar, teacher, author, open-water swimmer and musician Katie Gentile co-hosts. You may recall that Katie joins me twice a year for "radio ping-pong" sessions pitting my world musicky selections with her classic indie rock. Tonight we'll have a mini ping-pong incentive: Every time we hit a $500 plateau Katie gets to spin a track. Pledge for Katie's spins tonight!

If you pledge right here, as usual you can request the custom world music cd I've made for everyone who pledges $75 or more.

This year's cd is Accordions Rock the World!: Irresistible squeezebox-driven sounds from around the globe.



Of course, if my cd doesn't float your boat you can choose a different DJ's premium (cd or otherwise) instead. (Or if you make a one-time or swag-for-life pledge at higher levels you can choose multiple DJ premiums.) You can see the full list of DJ CD premiums at https://wfmu.org/dj-premiums/.

I’m now in my fourth decade on WFMU! Who’d a thunk it? Perhaps you’ll consider celebrating my radio longevity / commitment / obsession to discovering, learning about and especially sharing far-flung music from around the globe by making a $10 per month (or more) sustaining Swag For Life pledge.

If you do, your cup shall runneth over with WFMU swag EVERY year!

This year for a pledge of $50 or more you get our spanking new Eyeclops T-Shirt designed by Robert Beatty plus a WFMU bumper sticker.



And for a $10 per month swag for life pledge you'll receive our brand new Totally Lyred! T-Shirt designed by Greg Harrison!



Bump your monthly Swag For Life pledge to #15 a month (or make a one-time $180 pledge or multiple pledges adding up to $180 or more) and you'll receive our WFMU Bandanarama! designed by Jethro Haynes That level also entitles you to the two new t-shirts, the sticker AND 3 DJ premiums! Bonus: You also can have a WFMU fixture re-named in your honor!



We love dollar a day Swag For Life pledgers - we call that a "Mouse of Today" pledge. And if you "drop a Mouse" on our show (a $365 one-time pledge or multiple pledges adding up to $365 or more also do the trick) you'll receive tons of swag! Including the WFMU Galactical Tour Tee designed by Tremendous Graphics! That level also entitles you to the two new t-shirts, sticker, the bandana AND 5 DJ premiums!



Bump your Mouse of Today commitment up to $41 per month (or make one-time pledge or pledges totalling $500) and you'll get a ten DJ premiums, the three shirts, bandana, sticker, a choice of two classic prizes from our warehouse, AND a WFMU Corduroy Cap designed by Brianna Harden!



But any amount you can pledge is most fabulous and wonderful. And it just takes a $20 pledge to get our fab new Chiller Die-Cut Bumper Sticker, designed by Olaf, discount admission to our Record Fair April 24 - 26 at Brooklyn Expo Center - AND you’ll get in the running for a prize drawing for one of the great LPs and CDs I’m giving away to lucky pledgers this evening!



A premium-cd-level pledge of $75 or more made during tonight's show also gets you into the running for our grand prize, Paris to Calcutta: Men and Music on the Desert Road: A four CD set plus 160 page book with cloth bound cover featuring 45 pages of photographs and 50 pages of detailed recording notes, published by Sublime Frequencies.

Paris to Calcutta is Deben Bhattacharya’s impressionistic account of a 1955 journey overland, in a converted milk delivery van, from France to India collecting and exploring music. Bhattacharya (1921–2001) was a field recordist, poet, filmmaker, musicologist and amateur ethnomusicologist. Highly influential, it would not be too bold a stretch to say that his work shaped how we listen to the world.



What is SWAG FOR LIFE? It's WFMU's sustaining donor program - where we ask you to commit to a small monthly donation and as our thank-you for that commitment, you receive LOTS of swag. Sustaining pledgers are critical to the station's financial health and we are hoping many of you decide to become "Swag For Lifers" this month! It's all explained at https://wfmu.org/swagforlife/.

SEE THE SWAG (what you get at various pledge levels - new sticker, new t-shirts, and lots of other brand new goodies at higher levels) at https://wfmu.org/swag.

And whatever you can pledge to support our very special radio station is so very much appreciated. Thanks soooooo much! dj premiums

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm McGroovey:

(In the seventies in upstate NY, if you by chance said the same thing as someone at the same time, whoever called SLUGS! could punch the other person in the arm, unless the other person said SAFETIES! first.

Also, same for a fart, but only one person's fart, and that person had to call SAFETIES.

I guess if it was two simultaneous farts, it worked as for simultaneous words.)

@Mariano, supposedly more languages are spoken per square mile in Queens than anywhere else in the world. @paddy, none, I believe. But there's a very old Bryce CD premium in the prize warehouse -- Mouse pledgers can get that.

Scott67: The linguistic disconnect with baked goods is staggering, especially when you start involving other languages. In Spanish, depending on the country, the same word (pastel) can mean pie or cake, for example.

Hey-O everyone, been listening and reading comments. I see there's been talk of pie and I have this big fat frozen blueberry pie that I can't bake because my oven is out and it keeps calling my name. What to do. Well anyhow good show Rob W & Tamar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Handy Haversack:

With all the amazing premiums this year, it's almost a relief that some amazing DJs (Bryce, Julie) don't ones to make the choice even more complicated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm mariano:

Kpx: Prevail upon a neighbor's kindness for help then share the pie with them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Handy Haversack:

OK, crossing state lines might have tuckered me out. Lemme get some pizza in me.

whiskey's also quicker than wine, according to Mr. Osbourne (fwiw) 8^)

Spodi, anything under 25c feels cold to me mate. 😎🌞
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Ike:

You guys mentioned the Indonesian food fests in Queens, which are awesome. I also hope they'll be back. I think many years ago it was just the one in the mosque's parking lot in eastern Astoria and then the vendors started branching out and creating other Indonesian fests. And some of the vendors are from the Indonesian restaurants in Philly! In recent years there have also been ones in a veterans' hall kinda place and at St. James Episcopal Church, both in Elmhurst.

Difference between dif sources of alcohol interests me... Wine & Whiskey are clearly not the same besides ABV, right? Wine has things makes you more alert, I've heard... Whiskey strikes me as notably anaesthetic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Handy Haversack:

Whiskey, maybe, but not whisky!

Also as I've mentioned before, sometimes there is a cool Burmese fest at that Episcopal church. Hope that'll be back too. It used to take place in Briarwood! You guys mentioned Briarwood before -- I've never known any reason to go there except that festival.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Scott67:

Whisky definitely sharpens my mind! Beer dulls my senses, which is good these days. 👍😎
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Ike:

A lot easier to get to it since it moved to that church in Elmhurst. Briarwood is a long trek from southern Bklyn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Scott67:

Handy, did you say PIZZA!!??
👍😎🍕
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm mariano:

KenFHP: And as I learned not long ago, the style of music played at the Mos Eisley canteen and Jabba's palace is known as "jizz." Seriously, check it out: starwars.fandom.com...

...always have this notion - speculation - that Chinese Medicine ferinsatnce would classify Beer as Cooling, & Whisky would be under Fire. Yerknow - Beer & a head cold not good, Whisky medicinal...

I never picked it for a Jizz Bar Madge. Everyone was so uptight in there.

Hey there mariano, where I live the only other people that have an oven besides me is this couple that I would consider asking. So that's definitely an option . I do have one more idea though but I'm not too sure it will work. And that is to place the pie upside down on a plate and microwave it, and hope that the crust will contain the blueberries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Ike:

@mariano, if telling us that isn't information warfare then I don't know what is! I absolutely did not need to have that in my brain, and now I'm worried I'll never be able to forget it. ;P

Sorry, Ike! It's George Lucas's fault, as is so often the case in life.

...of course Jazz was often spelled Jass - & likely as not derived from 'jizz' - is what the StarWars people are going for...

  Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Tamar:

Kpx, no not the microwave! Make friends and share the pie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@mariano - So you suppose JI in the IM plays that on his show?
  Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Tamar:

Thanks for listening, and thanks for your pledges! Keep WFMU going for another year! Pledging $20 or more right now gets you in the running for the Mogadisco: Dancing Mogadisu 1972-91 LP.

You can adopt a DJ for for $365 or more. Check out the gallery here: www.flickr.com...

That's the Mouse of Today pledge, $365; in monthly installments.
  Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Tamar:

Ha, Handy, you beat me to it. Welcome, Kelly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm chresti:

For 15 per month, you can adopt a fixture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Handy Haversack:

I think we adopted the cat painting last year. At least, that's what we requested, and we never heard it was going hungry or anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm mariano:

I think I'm at $20/month. So I should be able to adopt something that's between a fixture and a DJ. What's between those two ontological categories?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Handy Haversack:

Mostly fixjs and Dtures, Mariano.
  Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Tamar:

Many a DJ is a WFMU fixture, but for these purposes, we are talking inanimate objects all over the WFMU building.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm thinking cats, dogs & birds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm chresti:

Ha Tamar.
I think you get your name affixed to the fixture, Handy

Crossing humans with inanimate objects creates a cyborg, so my guess is that what you get you're very own Terminator.
