Hello my friends & fellow Radioverts!
Thanks so much for being here with me tonight!

gorgeous (and poignant, from what i can understand) track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Richard S:

Hello! Listening but not paying attention (catching up on a bunch of mail and forums and stuff). It's always good to have WFMU on in the background. Maybe I'll check the archives later and REALLY listen to the story.

  7:11pm JakeGould:

Nat King Cole was born in the U.S. in Alabama. He is an American.

Seems like Tarantula would be a character ripe to bring back to face ICE troubles en.wikipedia.org...

How someone bites a pillow that way is quite a mental image.

Way to salvage a song about a morbidly solipsistic rock star.
  7:34pm Old Dave:

Putos is a swear word
  7:34pm Christy!:

OMG I love this so much!! *gush!* Music and story mix is excellent!! I'm dancing while cooking while grooving on the story :)

trump's fcc no hablo espanol, bro.
  7:42pm Old Dave:

Wait a minute. This is the A-political radio as declared by King Ken?
Never let us discuss things political. Period.
  7:44pm Christy!:

heartbreaking and timely, Nicole. <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm chris:

not political. fact. previous administration was same. please take this time to breathe deeply and know we're all family here.
  7:52pm John from florham park:

I try not to discuss things political on here, just like Facebook nothing good can come out of it and causes butt hurt feelings
  7:54pm JakeGould:

The FCC only cares about English bad words, comprende?
  7:55pm Christy!:

As on FB and other places, the trouble with anything political comes with the comments. So let us not comment, negative or positive, if we think this is political. Let's just enjoy the story. And the music.
  7:55pm Old Dave:

Pronounced agenda here. I get that Latinos have been played and also now play us.
I work in this mess. Please stop pretending it can be fixed by magic.
We do need to face facts. If there are not one million with deportation papers hiding among
us please explain why they deserve to remain here.
  7:58pm John from florham park:

Plus don’t want station manager Ken coming down hard on the accu chat
  7:58pm JakeGould:

@OldDave: If you have a complaint about the content of this story, complain to Ken. But keep in mind that many DJs here make reference to the world outside of the radio, music and creative mayhem. In fact IRL (In Real Life) the show that had this slot prior to this show interviewed more than a few people who could have been considered “political.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm chris:

if we can't learn to once again communicate with each other, even when we disagree, we're screwed. lets relearn listening skills and open our hearts to one another. then, maybe we can do good things again.
  7:59pm Christy!:

Thank you so much for introducing me to this amazing writer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm chris:

  8:00pm tak:

you can yell about meritocracy to the moon. these radio waves go around This world. digging the show
  8:01pm JakeGould:

Thanks Nicole!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm ultradamno:

And the TARFU report. Politics are not verboten. And the choice should not be bad politics vs. denial of politics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm ultradamno:

Obviously, this was a political story. Good.
