Sheila, Just want you to know I moved here in June last year to middle of nowhere and WFMU is the only decent station I get reception to in my kitchen, which is how I discovered your show. Such amazing good fortune! Now I sit in the parlor and listen to you. Best part of my week. Live long and prosper!

Really, really love this Amason song.

Computer#3 is a wacky sing! (I love it). 1968- must be about a mainframe, right? (Pre-apple, right?)

Killing it, Sheila!
Avatar Fri. 3/11/16 3:57pm Joe B:

Also folks, keep in mind that WFMU's $1.2 million goal has not gone up in YEARS, but operating costs rise each year. So it is a modest goal that we MUST achieve!
Avatar Fri. 3/11/16 3:57pm statoj:

Doonebury cartoon skewered Wounded Warrior as a fraud this week. Much better to support WFMU. No rapelling required.
     Fri. 3/11/16 3:57pm Listener Robert:

You use washable towels there? Not paper? Huh, maybe you should've taken the bubble bath I offered yrs. ago. Are we talking about washrags for the kitchen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/11/16 4:01pm Adrian in London:

God, this sounds great!
     Fri. 3/11/16 4:01pm Listener Robert:

Well, Joe B., it's been $1.2 M for just a FEW yrs. in my recollection. But Stn. Mgr. Fred Keenan did say financial conditions this yr. are the worst ever. Part of it is the absence of rent revenue from what's now Monty Hall.

How's this idea: hire out Monty Hall to dancercise classes. Seems it'd be great for that on the evenings you don't have use for it. And I'm sure dancercise makes $ !

I had some other use for Auricle's annual fin. statement recently: Seeing what costs were, assuming they were typical, for a program streaming operation. I wanted to add some facts to the speculation at BellGab.com on whether Dark Matter Digital Network could pay for itself.

If this is your usual time to head out of the office for the 4 pm coffee ahead of the commute, why not send a bit of that cash Sheila's way instead? She's your audio caffeine every Friday!
     Fri. 3/11/16 4:10pm Listener Robert:

In cx w my above remarks, that's one of the great things about WFMU -- not only a great operation in its own right, but also showing the way for others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/11/16 4:12pm Evan From Seattle:

I can't wait to get my hands on this premium. Such amazing stuff! This is why I canceled cable so I could give that money to WFMU.

@P-90: oh, I don't know all intercultural dynamics. But they are of a different language group (not even in the same language family as Persian/Farsi). And they were independent for a little while, at the beginning of the 20th century.

Funny how citizenship works. I was born a US citizen in another country.

Wait...your show isn't named after Dead Or Alive's 1984 album?!?!? *hee!*

Lauper's scream singing duet with a skeleton is awesome!

Is the Oxford record gone? I called on time. Is there a way to not give my entire information if I did so already like 11 times? Just wondering.

@ADL: yeah, it's complicated. There's great music from that region, though.

That production sounds like a '60s variety show. I love it so much.

The French Neil Diamond?

"Io la conoscevo bene" or "I Knew Her Well" is a must for Stefania Sandrelli fans (you know who you are!), but also HIGHLY recommended to anyone who's fascinated by the 60's and 60's pop music and visuals.
