WFMU has always been left leaning/progressive besides a few DJs & JMAM. It's good to have at least one station like that when most of radio is dominated by radical right wing people.

I just described the Pilot song to Kate, and she seems dubious.

You can probably go back to Svengoolie at halftime, Todd, when the Packers are up by 35.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Frank In Queens:

Yes, I will certainly be watching. At least until Bob's show starts anyway.

We're baking cookies and listening. Great show, as always!
Avatar 4:27pm Joe B:

so cool of them to record that set for you TOPT
Avatar 4:27pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Handy Haversack: You would think, but this is exactly the type of game they phone it in for and wind up in trouble.
Avatar 4:28pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Joe B: Agreed! They phoned it in but it was still great...works better for them than The Packers!
