Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:13pm I k e:

Dang, this is such a great refreshing change after a long drive where the road noise was so annoying (and/or maybe the car stereo was kind of… aurally lumpy) that I couldn’t properly hear or appreciate anything subtle or complex and had to just listen to power pop like Metric instead. Which was very good, but still.

I await COMMANDS from a higher authority. Or the checkout dude from Wal-Mart. Either way.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:21pm I k e:

That Bronx WNYU transmitter location has always seemed like… a choice. Wanna listen to WNYU in Queens? You’re in luck. Upper Manhattan or Bx? Sure! Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, or NJ? Well, maybe if you jump up and down with your dipole antenna or spin it in a circle three times while blessing a fresh potato with Lee Ranaldo’s backwash… j/k NOPE! No reception for you LOSER!!! LOL

My voice has changed. I had a throat infection when I was in Florida in 2013. And my vocal chords were damaged

Haha, Jake! That was a loooong time ago! Ike, there's a repeater now so WNYU actually does come in downtown! Tanks, ShelbyG! Halklo, Andrew, & Nerv!!!
