Hello Ken, all!

I think I have an idea on how to make any DJ to play the new Jandek CD!

Do you think a DJ would play a Jandek song from its CD if it were inside the jewel case of another band they like, and had its label taken off?

Say you find the Satanicpornocultshop CD jewel case in front of you just before the start of the show. The CD inside will be the one from Jandek but it will have no label and obviously you wouldn't know. Now imagine one Winged Monkeys ask the DJ in the comment section to play something from the new Satanicpornocultshop. Imagine other two winged monkeys approve of the request. Would you play a song from it ?

I think most of the DJ would fall for the trick. I actually think the Winged Monkeys can prank several of the DJS of the station in order to play the entire Jandek album on WFMU!!!

It would be like a 'Winged Monkey Operation Sabotage'. Jandek needs WFMU, and WFMU needs Jandek! The co-habit must continue! What do you guys think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/16/14 9:20am Lewis:

i love it when I go to put a little star on a song and it is already there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/16/14 9:21am Ken:

I think that is cheating f0f0. I cant believe you would propose such a thing.
  Wed. 7/16/14 9:22am f≡f≡ (:

I would say stealing $5 and not playing Jandek is cheating.
  Wed. 7/16/14 9:24am f≡f≡ (:

Well, taking 5 dollars out of a CD jewel case isn't exactly cheating because there was no agreement to play anything from it for that amount of money...

But, hey, this is pranking for a good cause!

Back when there was a thing called local DJs, we had a morning guy up here who did Bob Dylan backwards. It was every line from this song in reverse order (Feel It Does Hoooooow!). It was pretty quality.

Ken, remember that stolen Jandek $5 next Marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/16/14 11:21am Asheville Jon:

hey Ken, can you play some Jandek? I also heard that someone put $20 in the new box set, so you could come out ahead on the deal financially too. play some jandek, get $20! what a deal
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/16/14 11:21am Guido from Cologne:

Maybe pay $ 5 to the record company to make them take the box set back?
Payola perversion! this cannot be!
  Wed. 7/16/14 11:21am f≡f≡ (:

That sounds like a great concept for a SSD show, Dan From Upstate!

Ken and Andy could read backwards the transcript of a previous show. Doesn't sounds like a lot of fun but at least we would be left with a reverse Trainwreck!

Shocked and appalled that a WFMU DJ would lower one's moral standards so far as to do something as reprehensible as taking a free five dollar bill. At least it wasn't a family member or friend of a DJ who took the money because we are not allowed in the second floor music library.

But what if they take the $20 note and play home?!

Interesting. The train leaves the train wreck gorge and winds up back on the track.

Did you know that the BBC shipping forecast radio message was interrupted for few minutes for the very first time like in a 100 years just three or four weeks ago ? Even some shipmen feared Britain was under a nuclear attack when they failed to hear the message. I promise you this is my last useless trivia for today.
