  Mon. 3/2/09 9:18am Ken:

Cmon people, make that pledge line ring!800-989-9368
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:24am Ken:

I think a good rule of thumb is to make a pledge for every playlist comment you've made in the last year. Sean Daily, I'm talkin at you.
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:26am bw:

show some love Sean indeed
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:30am Raj:

Alright, well here's my comment.


let's keep this going, folks!

Oh, and woo-hoo!
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:35am BSI:

but how are you gonna top the tazing-andy-breckman pledge lure? eh?
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:43am Ghengis Jung:

Happy Marathon!
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:43am bw:

BSI - pledge and you will find out!
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:44am Ghengis Jung:

I love the bank robbery photos!
  Mon. 3/2/09 9:50am PMD:

Ken, Cecile said she adopted you...
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:00am sebastian:

hmmm... conspicuous silence from the patrons...
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:01am bw:

Dear listeners... without you the phones dont ring 18009899368
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:09am AnAnonymousParty:

The 5th bank robber picture is NOT me. I don't even have a red bandana like one that anymore.
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:12am BSI:

oh, I will, bw... just waiting for the most dramatic moment to spring... What a perfect way to celebrate missing the axe during the last layoff spree! Whee!
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:17am postmanpaul:

hi ben and ken, good luck with the marathon lads, re; my pledge ref no.9453, any chance of a wfmu t-shirt rather than WFMU's Garden State Sticker and Reduced Record Fair admission swag?! Please.
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:31am AnAnonymousParty:

Put the needle near the record?
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:33am BSI:

pluck the needle from the turntable and wander away, aimlessly?
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:40am owen:

'put the needle and the record on ebay'
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:40am Carmichael:

Good morning, BW, Ken and fellow loose-walleted listeners. I am performing a pre-pledge fiscal analysis at this moment. More to come, as payday is this week.

I will give until I cry.
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:43am Ken:

Paul the Postman - Sorry, no can do on a T-shirt for $15. We can do swaps for swag at levels $50 and higher though.
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:49am Parq:

Back on line, fellow programs. If you're in the eastern corridor, I hope it's still pretty where you are. NYC already looks like the inside of a hangover victim's stomach.
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:51am dc pat:

dc is amazing right now--the sledding was perfect.
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:54am SeanG:

playin Robert Forster--gotta pledge
  Mon. 3/2/09 10:57am ottawa mike:

open the charlie feathers' eligibility to $50+ pledgers from earlier?
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:01am efd:

This Don Cavalli album is sooo good! Everyone should be pledging and trying to win it.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:01am Jason:

This Don Cavalli is awesome
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:02am Carmichael:

The Holy Modal Rounders took me over the edge. I have pledged. Good luck, Ken & Benjamen
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:05am Carmichael:

15 seconds of fame ....
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:09am Parq:

But a whole year of smugness, Carm. And that's not even mentioning the swag.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:12am Parq:

You have a point. Although no one knows about WFMU out here. I am slowly propogating the seeds of music diversity. How's that for smug?! :-)
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:13am will:

Benjamen, you do know the song "Ballad of Tommy Udo'" by Kaleidoscope from the record BERNICE? It's a good + fun song, complete with band member (David Lindley?) doing Udo quotes during ths song. Best , Will J
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:14am Joe:

Tom Waits for Snow, Man.

How fitting.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:14am Cecile:

Hi, everyone!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:15am Carmichael:

Aloha, Cecile!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:16am Cecile:

Yeah, I own Ken.
They charged my PayPal, so it should be official.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:16am Everone:

Hi, Cecile
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:17am Parq:

'Cile, have you picked out a color scheme for Ken's room yet?
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:17am JT:

this kool keith / tom waits thing is frikken nuts
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:18am Cecile:

Hiya, Carm!

Parq - Not yet - I didn't know I had that option...
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:19am Hugo:

Would a downgraded "Theory of Everything" be a "Theory of Something"?
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:20am bw:

pledge now to win this amazing cd
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:22am still b/p:

..or have you at least chosen the size of the pet carrier for the home visits, and a nice cedar-shavings DJ bed (plaid) from L.L. Bean?
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:25am Cecile:

Not that, either.
I have been lying down on the job.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:25am wha?:

Hypothesis of Everything, perchance?
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:27am still b/p:

Fifty percent downgrade = Theory of Every Other Thing.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:29am Parq:

Would Ken be downsized from Freedman to Indentured-servitude-man?
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:30am Hugo:

Theory is when you know everything and nothing works. Practice is when everything works and you don't know why ...
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:33am HotRod:

LET'S GO PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:35am Emily:

Ken- Don't worry! A lot of people are sleeping in b/c of the snow storm! FMU will prevail!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:39am sugarwolf:

I am hoping I don't have to go in to work today... that way I can stay home and pledge more!!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:40am Carmichael:

This is making me do the robot dance.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:40am Joe:

Yeah my robot's dancing too.

Or are we talking about two different things.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:40am Hugo:

Optimistic version:

Theory of Anything!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:42am gerardo:

  Mon. 3/2/09 11:42am Maestroso:

One mouse down, five to go.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:44am Carmichael:

Way to go, Emily!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:44am HotRod:

  Mon. 3/2/09 11:45am hathaway:

i have cecile's problem... but i too am a girl. yay, marathon!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:46am still b/p:

When desperation forces financial partnership with a certain native element in the FMU home region: Theory of The Thing...Y'Know, That Thing, The Thing We Talked About.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:47am Cecile:

Nice, gerardo!
what problem is that? I usually have several going at once and get confused...
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:48am Carmichael:

Theory of the Thing of Which We Will Not Speak.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:50am Hugo:

Theory of the Thing An Sich (german version)
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:52am Carmichael:

That's "mice" of today
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:53am still b/p:

A little dancing and uninhibited willingness could fundraise a single dollar bill at a time: Theory of Every Thong.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:54am hathaway:

cecile, they can't figure out if i'm a boy or a girl either. although your name is less confusing than mine, i think!
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:55am Carmichael:

I thought that same thing whenever I saw Ms. Hathaway.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:56am Cecile:

One would think, hathway....

Well, a little gender confusion is good for the soul, I think.
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:56am BSI:

if I were one to make terrible puns, I'd say you Hathaway better name than some...
  Mon. 3/2/09 11:59am hathaway:

bsi, you have a lovely name too! are you named for broadcast signal intrustion?
  Mon. 3/2/09 12:00pm Theopholus Punoval:

Nice try, BSI.
  Mon. 3/2/09 12:00pm BSI:

god, I hope so...
  Mon. 3/2/09 12:01pm Cecile:

hahahahah, maybe not.
  Mon. 3/2/09 12:18pm Rob W:
