Good afternoon Irene, hello one and all
Avatar 11:58am Annabella in Crewkerne UK:

Hi Irene, hello fellow listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm listener james from westwood:

Good Monday, Irene and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm HyperDose:

Good afternoon, engineer extraordinaire Irene! Happy to be here...not so happy about having to take the time to write to the city of JC proving the station's educational worth. But alas, fight we will!
Avatar 12:03pm TDK60:

Hi Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Hi, Irene! We were in DC years ago listening to the old WHFS. Weasel (one of their great DJ's) had Richard Butler on a guest and played this track for him. Afterwards, Butler admitted he was worried when he first heard it, thinking it was contemporary competition. "It's the Beatles?!", he said, "thank god."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm alanr:

Just curious what the policy for this show is, do we still need to wear masks or not, because its hard to know in the chat who is vaxxed and who is not?? (asking for a friend)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

*as* a guest, that should have read. We regret the error...
Avatar 12:05pm TDK60:

One of my fave Fab4 tracks. Dazzling.
Avatar 12:05pm TonyR:

This Beatles sounds great @128K. The 5.1 remaster?
Avatar 12:09pm TonyR:

I'll be vaccinated AND masked through the Summer, TYVM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Sean, Anabella, james, Hyperdose, TDK60, Summer and Michael and Sylvia, alanr, and TonyR! I'm falling behind in my commenting. TonyR, it's a 1999 remaster. I have a newer version but couldn't find it this morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm unpopularfred:

I've definitely been having an It's All Too Much of a morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Irene Trudel:

alanr, I think the unmasking is up to our individual judgement. I'm not totally ready for indoor unmasking. As the song says, It's all too much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Irene Trudel:

Sorry to hear that, unpopularfred, but i can relate!
Avatar 12:11pm TonyR:

Well it's Monday and beautiful and we're stuck inside. Let's ask teacher if we can have class outside!!!
Avatar 12:13pm TonyR:

I figure, if someone sees my umasked mug, they have no idea if I'm vaxxed or just a Tucker Carlson fan. Why not let the clerk at the bakery relax?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Irene Trudel:

TonyR, I have all my windows open and it helps!
Avatar 12:15pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Rock and roll Hall of Fame, what doe everybody think, I am super chuffed my hero Todd Rundgren got in
Avatar 12:16pm TonyR:

Thank you, Professor Trudel.
Avatar 12:16pm TDK60:

Give the Drummer Radio-only people may not have heard: WFMU is seeking letters (emails) of support emphasizing its educational importance. WFMU's nonprofit tax status is being questioned by the Jersey City govt. (deadline May 28). emailed to helpus@wfmu.org
Avatar 12:17pm TonyR:

300 words or FEWER.
Avatar 12:17pm Fox:

GASP! TDK, I'd no idea! That's AWFUL!!!!
Avatar 12:18pm Fox:

I also have all my windows open. Allergens be damned!
Avatar 12:18pm TonyR:

We all spent "Surface Noise" bashing Jersey City while Professor McGasko was trying to school us.
Avatar 12:19pm TDK60:

Sunshine Superman is one of my favorite albums. And surprisingly, I find a lot of people don't know it, or that it's one of the very first "psychedelic" albums!
Avatar 12:19pm TonyR:

Also, Station manager Ken F. has asked that the plea for comment not be circulated on Social Med platforms. I don't know his reasoning, but it sounds right to me. I'm sold.
Avatar 12:20pm TDK60:

..("Legend" from "Superman" LP)
  12:21pm Peter K.:

The show is off to an amazing start. A perfect start, really.
Avatar 12:21pm TonyR:

Donovan doesn't get enough respect. Or so I thought until I heard this tune.
  12:21pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

How are you all
Avatar 12:26pm Sean in Bristol UK:

The kids in the softball team whom I am training are pleading with me to come out. No chance, 5-8 pm here in the UK is my sacred three hours, I feel so mean!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, TDK60, I will be reading a statement about this Jersey City crisis in a little While. Feel free to comment and send in your thoughts to the email I will mention in a bit.
  12:26pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

Hi Sean
Avatar 12:27pm Sean in Bristol UK:

And the meanness has gone! My happy slot continues! Great set to start us off with
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Irene Trudel:

True about Donovan. Happy belated birthday to him, BTW.
Avatar 12:28pm TDK60:

I think the big misunderstanding is: WFMU is educational but it's so darn fun; that people don't know that edjumakation /can/ be fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm fred:

I'm a foreigner and the few concrete examples I have are related to NYU or Columbia, so not helpful when it comes to JC. So I'll keep quiet
Avatar 12:31pm TDK60:

Fred: The station manager said people writing in can be from outside the Jersey area.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Irene Trudel:

We are mainly asking for comments to support WFMU and all our streams. I'll explain on-air shortly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Irene Trudel:

fred, no worries if you're from outside the area. Many folks are listening worldwide.
  12:35pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

Wow Todd in the hall of fame at last
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm HyperDose:

Just finished my letter. I guess you can fight city hall. ☺️
Avatar 12:37pm Sean in Bristol UK:

And we can shelter in pubs from today when the weather gets iffy
Avatar 12:40pm Fox:

Didn't he recently drop a music video with some backwards lyrics directed by David Lynch?
Avatar 12:41pm Fox:

Maybe it's not a RECENT video by Donovan, but I only just came across it this past week.
  12:44pm headcleaner:

just missed your important request but will duly fish back for it in the archives, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Irene Trudel:

Please send your letters of support for WFMU to: helpus@wfmu.org. The deadline is May 28th.
Avatar 12:45pm TDK60:

I went to my first non-masked gathering yesterday, a big picnic in a park. I had qualms, didn't know if all had been vaccinated. In public I still wear a mask, will for a while more..
  12:45pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

I love Donovan
Avatar 12:46pm TDK60:

headcleaner: If you can go to the WFMU main page, DJ Joe McGasko and the Wake show have written text on this in the comment section.
  12:48pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

Where do I send messages of support
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm fred:

@Irene: I thought I heard the email address as helpus@wfmu.org. Is it help instead?
  12:50pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

Happy days ahead to you
  12:50pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

Hi Sean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Irene Trudel:

Ack! you're right, fred. helpus@wfmu.org. I'm a bit of a mess today. Just fixed the other one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm doctorjazz:

Hi Irene and listeners!
That stinks! (I'm guessing there's a hole in the city budget they're trying to fill on WFMU's dime).
Avatar 12:58pm Sean in Bristol UK:

To mirror the question from Annabella, can we send correspondence from the UK? Hi Annabella
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Irene Trudel:

Hi doctorjazz! That would seem to be the case. Sean and Anabella, we absolutely would welcome your letters. It's important that they know we reach people worldwide.
Avatar 1:03pm Marco Esquandolas:

Hi Irene and All! This tune is beautiful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Irene Trudel:

The educational value of WFMU is most important in this case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Marco! I have a few nice new pieces to play today.
  1:05pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

Thank you let me know where to send the message to
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Irene Trudel:

Anabella, the address again is helpus@wfmu.org.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Irene, we will absolutely write on the station's behalf! And although this may be a question better asked of Ken, what does "address the city of Jersey City" mean exactly? Does that simply mean the email begin by literally addressing it "to The City of Jersey City" or does it mean to address how WFMU is important to the city educationally? At just 300 words our first thoughts would be to detail WFMU's larger educational and cultural importance, not simply within the relatively small community of the city itself...
Avatar 1:10pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Stunning, stunning set Irene, thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm fred:

What kind of education are we talking about? Is higher-ed allowed or should it be focused on K-12?
  1:15pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

WFMU is one of the best radio stations in the whole world and one day Ihope to do. a show on there when I am living in New York. If there was a DJ hall of fame Irene Wolfman Jack. Bob Harris Anne nightingale. Johnnie Walker and all the other DJs on WFMU would be in there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm fred:

@Annabella: With a Stan animatronic at the gate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Irene Trudel:

Summer and Michael and Sylvia, I think it means, to direct your comments to The City of Jersey City. It's best to keep from going on too long in your letter. fred, I think educational means to educate listeners in general.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm chris in the redwoods:

letter sent!
also, hello Irene and all assembled.
thanks for the great soundtrack to write government to, Irene. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Irene Trudel:

Thank you, chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm chris in the redwoods:

yes, agreed, that's what i did, S&M&S.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm HyperDose:

@chris Classy writing backdrop, right? Mondays without Irene are definitely less chill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm chris in the redwoods:

absolutely, HyperD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Thank you, Irene & Chris! Will do!
  1:42pm headcleaner:

lovely tax day anti-stress sound patterns you are providing us with, Irene
Avatar 1:47pm TDK60:

Yes, getting ready to go to the post office to send some tax funds/letter. Not happy a low income person like me pays while huge corporations barely do. (And that some of that $ goes to the military; not my preference.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Irene Trudel:

Thank you Hyperdoe and headcleaner! Tax Day was definitely part of the stress level today, although I just got an email saying our return was accepted. We owe a lot, unfortunately.
Avatar 1:49pm Stork:

Hi Irene and everyperson. Sweet sounds.
  1:52pm Annabella LL Van Clute:

The music gets better and better.Irene Would love to send you a cd music commpolation of mine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Irene Trudel:

Heya Stork! Glad you're enjoying the sounds today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm doctorjazz:

Heard about the Roulette got tomorrow on Gig Alerts this morning (so nice to have gig alerts again).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, for real live performances are popping up all over, doctorjazz. Such a welcome sign of normalcy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm doctorjazz:

Got to The City Winery yesterday (Baetlemania type show, Strawberry Fields), was fun, and GREAT to go to an indoor concert!
Cool Blakey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, that's great! We haven't been to the new City Winery yet but will keep our eyes open for shows.
Avatar 2:24pm TDK60:

Thanks Irene! Off to the post office..
