Welcome to show #6 in the 38 part* one-hour series of this weekly hip-hop radio show. Am doing this show from CA where over next two weeks will be doing two more shows - info/locations to follow in later comment - As with SUW today, this show is dedicted to Johnny Muller (RIP) who was tragically killed in an auto accident over the weekend - he was a good guy and a part of not only Shut Up Weirdo but of the WFMU family. Even if u did not know Johnny let his sudden passing in his mid-twenties be a reminder to embrace life and live/love every day as if it is your last - as it well could be. This show is also dedicated to another artist who died too young - Deon "Big D" Evans from Berkeley CA died few days ago at 45 following kidney and heart health problems - He was down DU and the East Bay scene in late 80's/early 90s and is best remembered as 2Pac's producer for work he did on first two Pac albums - The response to last week's (silent) fund drive was amazing - pushing the total up to 95% - so good that station mgr Ken readjusted the goal total pushing it (one time only) back down to 57% - so hopefully over the last two shows (today and next Friday) of the October crunch time drive we can bring that percent up to 100 (keep it a hundred) - THANK U for listening today…..THanks to Mighty Grouse for board op engineering - and for sharing his fave 45 record which he will play at end of show before FineWine takes over the F M U airwaves…. *Note that this schedule goes through beginning of June 2016 when my plan is (but who knows what might happen) to do another (bigger better) 2016 WFMU Summer Series of this show - a 14 part series of 3 hour shows - that's the plan Stan

Did 91.1 just go off the air for a moment?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Ike:

Whatever happened, it's back now.
Avatar 7:44pm Dawgisht:

That's crazy... I remember him being hella friendly, funny and a good dude. I think he and his brother used to work at KTOP-TV (Oakland gov't access channel 13)... and was an avid P-Funkateer!

He probably won't remember me, but please tell him what's up from two decades ago. lol
