Welcome to a special Marathon edition of this show dubbed "Put the Needle on The Beast" (c/o of Nate Unger who also had idea for Keili and me teaming up for this show)....Shout out to amEdeo for board oping duties. I am calling in from Ireland for this show coz I had to be over here for family matters - namely the passing of my pops, DJ Brennie, to whom this show is dedicated. That is a picture of him as a young man on lower part of today's playlist. If you tuned in to one of the remotes I did from Ireland in 2010 you might have heard him on the simulcast from Power FM.....Meanwhile back to the Marathon - this fine radio station - W F M U - needs your love and support very badly at this time - so support this station and support this show in anyway you can - Thank you! - Billyjam

If you don't have the means/ability to pledge we've been there and understand.

If you have the ability to give more we hope that you value FMU and do and support Billy J and Keili and Free Form.
Together we are unstoppable FMU folks :)

  Fri. 3/8/13 7:30pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Thanks to whoever took my pledge just now. So off my game, as I was driving through traffic while gabbing on the phone. Hahahaha! WFMU is worth acting a bit erratic over.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/13 7:30pm Danne D:

@Toots miss you guys too :) Are you guys around for any other marathon days? I have some volunteer shifts left - hope to see you guys :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 3/8/13 7:30pm cklequ:

Watching the goal rise at the WFMU homepage is like watching paint dry on growing grass. Somebody needs to send in huge chunks of cash soon. I just can't afford to keep pledging like this anymore. I'm tapped out.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 3/8/13 7:30pm Toots:

Great year for birthin' too! Love you li'l DJ babygirl!

The late 80's early 90's were the best years. And for me the early 80's too when I was exposed to B-boyin when I seen the movie Breakin

Li'l Johnny Cash has Pneumonia & I have no car. So I'm grounded. Maybe Hoof N Mouth?
Avatar Fri. 3/8/13 7:32pm Danne D:

@cklequ it's a team effort - folks give what they can :) encourage friends you've turned on to FMU to do so :)

Of course if I hit powerball tomorrow, the meter will probably go up faster
Avatar Fri. 3/8/13 7:32pm Danne D:

maybe Toots - sorry to hear about Li'l Johnny Cash :(
