  12:41pm Todd:

Hey Fellas! WFMU hive mind question:
Earlier you were talking about Matt's show on the Ichhybunny stream. Is there a published grid for the Ichhybunny stream? Is there a schedule for that stream anywhere on the WFMU website like there is for the flagship WFMU channel/stream?
Thanks in advance for any info!
Avatar 12:43pm Matt Clarke:

Hey Todd! It's a little odd to find the schedule but when you to the homepage. If you move your mouse of the listen tab a dropdown menu comes up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Gaylord Fields:

"This is Cliff Bennett for the British Dental Association, reminding all the kids out there that you've got to get proper dental hygiene into your life. Take it from me and the Rebel Rousers!"
Avatar 12:43pm Matt Clarke:

And then move your mouse over the streams and the options come up for listen or see the schedule for the respective streams
Avatar 12:45pm Matt Clarke:

I am gonna see if my band can get a sponsorship from Scope. Thanks Gaylord! I will send you the first box of toothbrushes I get
