where did the walking animation go? I thought it was on the homepage but I'm not seeing it now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:36pm Caryn:

@mink: it's occasionally replaced by DJ videos
Avatar Fri. 3/18/16 3:37pm Dave in Vermont:

mink click the arrow to the right of the video still, you might have to make your browser screen a little bigger to see that
  Fri. 3/18/16 3:38pm mink:

@Caryn : Ahhh I see. Also, do you know how much overall they need to raise? I thought in the past they had the figure open. (Not that it's a problem, just interested really)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:38pm Caryn:

Now I'm rooting for a "The Heat is On" choral performance during the H&M Sinfonia. Scott on saxophone. Or at least a reprise at the end of this show.

@mink: 1.2 million bucks
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/18/16 3:38pm Cliff:

It's over a million for sure
Avatar Fri. 3/18/16 3:38pm statoj:

WFMU is the only station where the pledge week shows are more entertaining than the rest of the year! Such a pleasure to share the wealth! (Mine and yours.)
  Fri. 3/18/16 3:39pm P-90:

This is like hearing my Friday afternoons chatting with mu Sunday nights. Just a little bit weird, in a good way. A GREAT way!

Also yes the marathon is really fun radio :)

  Fri. 3/18/16 3:42pm mink:

that map was awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:42pm Caryn:

@Rev.: nope. Since they're switching from Kenzo's system to the new system, the Marathon map is not there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/18/16 3:43pm Cliff:

mink: It sure is! It's expensive to run a radio station, even when it's done by volunteers.

Huzzah!! Tick Tock!! We're dancin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:44pm Adrian in London:

Woo-hoo!!
  Fri. 3/18/16 3:45pm P-90:

@mink: a lot in a sense but really a tight budget to fund the operation of a major radio station, maintain the building it's housed in, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:45pm chris:

hi everyone! boom boom! pledge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:45pm Caryn:

And since they'll have to spend 4 grand on parts alone to get 90.1 working properly, they could sure use pledges. Come on, people!
Avatar Fri. 3/18/16 3:45pm JP from KC:

Thanks, Sheila B, for making me feel like I'm on a beach in the south of France, and not sitting in my windowless office in the boring Midwest. ¡Viva La WFMU!
Avatar Fri. 3/18/16 3:46pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, man, the strings on this Connie song. You just want to lie down in them and be swept away. Whole package is damn perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:46pm The Contessa:

Agreed @LJFW Thanks @Sheila!
  Fri. 3/18/16 3:47pm mink:

I wonder how much is the online archives. they go all back to 2000 don't they? (did I get that right?) That is insane. This place is amazing
Avatar Fri. 3/18/16 3:47pm statoj:

This is ridiculous for me to admit, but I just "got" the "WF" "MU" caption on the dog and cow. Listening for six months: better late than never!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 3:47pm Caryn:

If any DJ decides to put this on their premium next year, they've got some pledges nailed down already.
  Fri. 3/18/16 3:48pm P-90:

"Tick Tock" ROCKS! A total late-'60's-style modernization of her sound. Bob Crewe himself would approve!
THANKS DJ Sheila B!

Hi, Contessa. Yes, there are two owlets. They named them Owlison and Owlex. They're getting bigger by the day. They've lost their little chick fuzz and are getting real feathers.

This is true. have Ken come along with a pooper scooper to reset the scene. Ha, that is an analogy alright :')

Thanks for the update, Ken, wish we could see them!

I would also love to have the dog cow logo shirt. I know they had one. Maybe they'll bring it back. I'm super excited about "The Shirt You Want," though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/18/16 4:08pm Caryn:

@Cliff: yeah, for a bit in the background on the left. The bone stuck around a bit longer than the monolith, which came and went.

@Contessa - Awesome! If that grows old, there's an eagle web cam going on: www.eagles.org...
@mink - I suggested to SM Ken that there should be a decorative porch flag with the WoofMoo logo. He liked the idea, but no flag has yet appeared.
  Fri. 3/18/16 4:08pm modchick65:

@WFMU: People want the dog cow logo shirt. Bring it back. In the words of the Kinks, the O'Jays AND Miss Sharon Jones... "Give the people what they want." I've got $$ right here for Woof Moo shirt.

Ken, Yes, but am I right in thinking that Nachum only plays male singers? Every time I think it is a female, then I suspect it is a male child. I enjoy Nachum's show, but after months of listening it made me wonder, are Jewish women not allowed to sing religious music?
