Hello wufmooers... Random announcement not related to the music necessarily... it's 50 years since MLK's poor people's campaign and now there's a new Poor People's campaign! There will be actions in at least 37 states and D.C. you can get involved in your state probably or contribute to the legal defense fund at:

Did Mickey Hart put the DRB together, or was he just a supportive affiliate? I think this is the first time I've actually heard them.

Every time I've been on the air since I started filling in again there's been a storm of some kind. Better bring your umbrellas the next few Tuesdays.

Hello. Branca, have this on cassette. I think among the guitar pounders are 2 later Sonic Youths. Maybe.
Avatar 4:17pm

Yet, S.Y. was together by '83 I think. will check credits later, not at home.

The storm has descended on Newark, NJ. It's almost as dark as 3 a.m. out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm

It's great to see everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm

the view of the empire state building outside my office is apocalyptic and terrifying. there's a giant cloud over it and it's pitch dark. its gonna be so fun walking to penn station in stilettos :)))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm

on the bright side, the music is a perfect soundtrack

Suddenly feels like I've started one of my late night fill ins
Devin B.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm

@BronwynB, this is why I never wear stilettos! Well, almost never. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm
Rob (Jerzcity):

good stuff, Jonathan, thanks

This storm is bullshit. It started right at 5:00pm. And now I am stuck at work until it calms down a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm

update: i can't see the empire state building at all anymore. it may have been carried away by the wind- who could tell? wish me luck comrades and if i dont make it to penn station, wfmu gets my record collection, except the ethel merman disco album. i want to be buried with that one
