Jim, with all these "animal" bands, you could rename this program "Morning Zoo " But I think that one's been taken already.

Thanks, Gerry. I'm taking care of a 10 year old cocker spaniel poodle while someone is getting medical treatment. She gets canned + dry food and I tossed in a single mushed blueberry. I need to read up on the list of dog no-nos so I don't get into trouble.

Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:21am Will the Sound Guy:

Charlotte has been listening to only WFMU or a stream... I'm thinking I won't transition her to a lesser station. So far, it hasn't been necessary... WFMU is the GOAT 🐐🐐🐐
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:21am pgalub:

Is this all leading to Zebra, "Who's Behind The Door?" Hmmmm ;)
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:21am dale:

maybe she should listen to some alan watts lectures.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:23am Will the Sound Guy:

Maybe when she gets a little bit older, and can absorb it better.
  8:23am Listener Robert:

As usual, I fell back asleep during this program, and I dreamed I had some motivation for instigating "war" between factions (who I guess would have to be Jim and Amanda) of "Bad Animals". I decided it would count as a win if the one of you in charge of reporting the weather were thoroughly confused by the other one as to what the weather was. And so it came to be, on the air.

Damned if I can remember what I had to gain by that.

  8:27am Toothgrinder Tom:

Did anyone hear about the ‘mad’ geneticist who is trying to de-extinct wooly mammoths by splicing their dna into modern elephants? He started a company and is selling this as a way of impeding global warming.

I hope my Wolfie on the shelf is enjoying this wolf set. Usually, though, he's too soused to register anything.

Dale, my friend Sandy writes most or all of the lyrics
  8:35am Rob from Maryland:

@Toothgrinder Tom, the geneticist really is mad if he thinks bringing back a mammal species that could not live in today's world is going to impede global warming.
Avatar 8:36am Juli:

Hehe I would adopt Lynx and all the kitties and dogs tbh

I can hear crackles. This must be the original Absolut Ago Go release. This was a unique underground album in its time.

His argument had something to do with their grazing habits, can’t remember the details though. I believe he’s on the faculty of MIT.
