For Aqua:

A little girl is in line to see Santa. When it's her turn, she climbs up on Santa's lap. Santa asks, "What would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas?"

The little girl replies, "I want a Barbie and G.I. Joe."

Santa looks at the little girl for a moment and says, "I thought Barbie comes with Ken?"

"No", said the little girl. "She comes with G.I. Joe, she fakes it with Ken."

@NotARealDoctor If you pledge when WFMU sends you swag or communications there'll be listener number on your correspondence. But if you;re a first-time pledger you can just go ahead and pledge anyway.
Avatar Fri. 3/10/17 3:37pm mark r.:

A listener number is a vestige of a bygone era that you don't need any more. But in the old days, it was important. Brian, yes, the phones ring for online pledges, too. It adds to the pandemonium and hysteria. Because you can never have enough of that, especially when the porch is on fire.

@NotAReaDoctor I had the same question but I didn't want to be the one to ask.

JtotheK, a friend of mine had a daughter who was crazy about them, and he ended up being a huge fan too. He said, "people did look at me kind of funny because I was actually sitting with her in the theater when we went to see them and not out in the lobby complaining with the other dads."

@Cecille: remember, that "Grease" theme was one of the songs written for the seventies movie that was not immediately n the original sixties stage musical about the fifties. The producers were worried that kids wouldn't "relate" to the Doo-Wop-ish original songs.

It was a couple of REAL Disco-era types, Robert Stigwood and Allan Carr, who made that Grease movie. The Gibbs were one of Stigwood's acts, and Frankie Valli was a "fifties" singer who was still scoring hits in the seventies, so I guess he seemed like a natural go-to...
