@emilie:

Pasting:

The city of Jersey City has asked WFMU to prove that its programming has educational value, as a condition of keeping its tax exemption. This is a serious matter to the financial health of the station.

As part of this effort, we're asking our listeners to provide letters or emails explaining how and why WFMU's programming has not just entertained them, but has also provided educational value. The educational value can be related to the history and relationship between culture or ideas, or more direct value such as information about any matters of public importance. Tell us how you have gained knowledge through the time you have spent listening to WFMU.

This is a serious effort to address an important disagreement WFMU is having with the city of Jersey City. Whether you are an educator, a student or merely a student of life, please help us out with a thoughtful letter or email, and please keep them to 300 words. Letters should address the City of Jersey City, and can be emailed to helpus@wfmu.org by May 28th. Thank you for your help.

Also, Ken said that putting it on letterhead from educational institutions would be super helpful and letters from teachers and educators in general.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm tim from champaign (now washington):

I just looked up Jenny Mae. The end of her life is sad. I wasn't aware of her. Last week I read "Hit So Hard" by Patty Schemel who was Hole's drummer. I can't handle Hole at all but something seemed compelling about the book. Patty's story of addiction is totally harrowing. I'm glad she made it. She seems very relatable plus has great musical tastes (other than Hole-hahaha).

RTD, thanks. I didn't know about the early DC noise scene until I picked up a Peach of Immortality CD at a show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm McGroovey:

It's on the album "Akustika". Discogs says it's 1981, but their release dates are clouded by the fact that they were basically all self-bootlegs until 1984 or so.
www.discogs.com...
  4:29pm Greg:

Technically, "Through the Looking Glass", and it appeared on an eponymous 1976 album. I know we've all moved on from the Aquarium's translation, but you asked, and I delivered... :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm ChukAmok:

Bad Brains in their day WAS the DC scene. Minor Threat was still scrappy Teen Idles when Bad Brains was first tearing it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm sphere:

Bad Brains were before my time but I believe they were as big as you might imagine. "Banned In DC" is based on real experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm sphere:

Is it reasonable to say that the Bad Brains invented hardcore?
  4:30pm Yes:

This is nice !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm McGroovey:

And there were several versions of many songs, and there were underground fan-recorded audience tapes that were often as widely distributed as anything the band did the themselves.

But that sounds like a studio recording, so with going to my record collection, I'll say it's the version from Akustika.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm ChukAmok:

Excellent news re: the tax decision reversal!! Guess I can delete this draft unconstructively calling the powers that be in JC "irredeemable, thankless money-grubbing bureaucrats drunk on their own lack of imagination".

Cool, thanks for the insights!

steveo, I had edited letters for two other people but hadn't done mine yet -- just secured letterhead from work!

Creamo did an excellent Battiato set yesterday. As is typical, I didn't even know him. Thanks, FMU -- tax threat or not, I'm still learning!

sphere, could Death get partial credit? Though maybe it doesn't count if you go unheard ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm McGroovey:

@Greg I prefer "From the other side of the looking glass" but the Russian implies either translation, ambiguously.
Avatar 4:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Sphere: There was a tiny but strong 80s experimental scene in DC but hardcore was competing for venues -- Was privileged to play the opening of the DC Arts Center in adams morgan back then but options were slim..
  4:35pm Greg:

McGroovey, I let the sweet sound wash over me and didn't pay too much attention otherwise. I listened to them as a kid, but their prime was slightly before my time (i.e. before I was born).

I translated "mirror glass," and then was like, what's a mirror glass?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm ChukAmok:

A lot of early Slumberland releases were in/around D.C.: Black Tambourine, Big Jesus Trash Can/Whorl, Velocity Girl, Lilys, etc. Late '80's/early '90's.

Quicky Google translation if the lyrics (close enough for rock'n'roll):

The last rain is almost no rain;
See how easy it is to find peace in it.
And if you believe that tomorrow will be a new day,
Then it's quite easy ..

Oh, only this night would not end;
It seems to me that my home is no longer home.
See how light it is for them - they play their life
On the wall behind the glass.

I think I recognize myself
In that boy reading poetry;
He squeezed the arrows with his hand so that this night does not end,
And the blood flows from the hand.

But it seems like it's just a game
On the other side of the mirror glass;
And here is dawn, but we have not lost anything:
Today is the same day as yesterday.
