Options April 14, 2015: Marathon Pledger's Request Hour
Thanks to all who pledged for Morricone Island during WFMU's successful 2015 marathon. As promised, host Devon E. Levins will be playing the soundtracks his pledgers designated as their favorite for this week's "Marathon Pledger's Request Hour." From Yojimbo and Aguirre to Free Willy and Dick Tracy, somehow Devon's gonna make it all work out (despite some teetering on the verge of getting him yanked from the station). Can the listeners curate a better soundtrack to their Tuesday night than the host? You be the judge as it is, after all, your show this week!

"Dick" is an underrated gem. IMO.
