"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Morning John, is it possible to make a Mouse of Today pledge but split the cost via a monthly payment?

@George of Troy: ah, more wisdom of the rural Buddha. Or Dalai Farmer, as some have been known to call him.

I'm tryna give you part of my prize acct pledge but the lady on the phone won't do it because JM in the AM. Help!
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 6:47am Pat Byrne:

Sean- this is possible. Just indicate that this is how you'd like to pay when you're bill. Joe McGasko can help you with the details on that.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 6:48am Caryn:

Until 9 a.m., you can only pledge online. The phonelines are for pledges to JM in the AM.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 6:48am Listener Bryan (the Professor):

ok. i'm going to go through the whole online system again. this is what love looks like.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 6:49am Pat Byrne:

ATTN: ALL- do NOT use the 800 number!!! those calls will go driectly to JM in the AM!!! ONLY WEB PLEDGE US! That will go directly to this show.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 6:50am Caryn:

@Bryan: on the pledge page, you can choose between "pay in full" and "pay X per month".

I just realized they made it easier than it used to be to parcel out bits of your swag4life. Improvement much appreciated!
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 6:54am Listener Bryan (the Professor):

Now that I've parceled out my whole pledge for the year I'm in dangerous territory of being sucked in to pledge even more. I'm going to have to turn off the radio after this show.

If the dog is not showing symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, taking it to the vet may not be absolutely vital. But to be on the safe side, you might want to give the dog lots of fiber (e.g. Metamucil) and vaseline with its food in order to help the fiberglass pass through the intestines more easily and safely. Alternatively, if the dog possibly ate the fiberglass just a little while ago, you could try to make the dog vomit using peroxide. I'd probably call the vet for advice, just to be sure.

If ppl are trying to make a decision about all the stuff in the prize warehouse, you can't do better than John Allen's Twisted Nerve 1977-1982 (2008). Seriously. Among the best of the best.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 7:16am Pat Byrne:

KEEP PLEDGING PEOPLE! The photo on the left is NOT an exaggeration.
  Wed. 3/18/15 7:29am Cooh John:

Thanks for the recommendation, Listener Bryan.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:01am Pat Byrne:

MAKE IT HAPPEN, FOLKS! If you're a regular listen of this show- PLEASE show us some love- $20 get's you in the running for our next prize. If you've already pledged- consider upping your pledge!
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:02am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Woah, early 80s MTV flashback! I remember winning a copy of this album off a local radio station at the time. Not too impressed, but then saw a weird Planet P Project video and suspected Tony Carey was a bit more interesting than the album suggested.
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:21am violet:

I'm kind of confused about Nachum's role in WFMU. There's clearly a political agenda in his broadcasts (e.g. live from an extremist settlement in Hebron!) All other FMU output is non-political, but it's pretty obvious that Nachum's extreme-right Zionism isn't very compatible with the worldviews of most DJs and listeners. So why's he on the schedule? Presumably he brings in a lot of donations during this time - could the station survive without these? Is this a taboo subject here?
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:22am common:

yep. wednesday
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:27am Caryn:

@violet: there have been political talk-based shows on WFMU across the years. The idea seems to be that DJs are allowed to profess even extreme political views as long as they don't cross a line. Some DJs have crossed the line and been kicked off the schedule.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:32am dk:

it seems to me that JM in the AM is on the schedule because he fits exactly in what seems like WFMU's mission: to provide a radio home for voices that aren't represented elsewhere, particularly when those voices can really ONLY work on radio. there's nothing else on radio like JM in the AM _anywhere_ in the world, and that's a statement you could make about pretty much everything on FMU. that, and the incredible diversity of those voices, is why FMU is so important.

if you don't get that, i don't actually see how you could get anything about FMU.
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:33am Ike:

For many yrs, JM in the AM raised over a third of each year's fundraising goal. Nobody wanted the 6-9 a.m. slot back in 1980. They figured why not let some Orthodox Jews try it?
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:34am Ike:

(Or at least that's my understanding of the schedule history.)
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:34am violet:

But would you be comfortable with a KKK advocate broadcasting 15 hours a week on your FM signal though? I'm guessing not.

I'm really not trying to stir up trouble here, just trying to understand how such extremist view can fit into this picture. He may get kids to sing on his show, but Nachum represents a racist pro-settlement agenda.

It's true I don't have to listen to JM in the AM because of your webstream, but when I hear a few seconds of the Israeli national anthem during the changeover I do feel confused and uncomfortable.
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:35am fredr:

You guys couldn't have said it better. I have friends from both sides of political thought who love WFMU. Free form is apolitical and should remain so. Just play the music and stay creative!
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:35am Dave Emory:

I taught you a lot. I wish I could come back soon.
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:37am Splash1:

Thanks Guys for the Tony Carey! You made my day. Tim in TN
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:37am dk:

violet, comparing JM in the AM to a hate group is extremely offensive. Nachum serves a huge community in the NY/NJ area and around the world which is lacking in other mass-media voices. the show might not align with your political views, but it's not preaching hate.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:38am common:

one of the best rock albums ever, this!
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:38am Pat Byrne:

Enjoy it, Tim! Keep pledging folks!!!
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:38am Freedom:

I hear a wannabe censor :-(
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:38am John Allen:

thanks Dave. an honor to read your voice here.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:41am Caryn:

@violet: we had a DJ on evenings whose whole schtick involved insulting the listeners and ranting in an anti-Semitic manner, among other things. He was allowed to stay on the air until his behaviour became a bit too violent and troubling. WFMU's goal is to provide different types of shows and viewpoints the opportunity to express themselves. Nachum has every right to have Zionist views, Irwin has every right to be a free-market conservative, Ken has every right to talk about his visits to head shops. If I don't like a show, I don't listen to it.
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:43am violet:

@dk He support the colonisation of the West Bank, which is a racist agenda, however you look at it. He doesn't just vocally support it, he actually went and broadcast live from a settlement in Hebron. I assume you know what life is like for the Palestinian residents of that city and are familiar with the attitudes of the settlers there. If you aren't, check it out. I'll stop posting about this now, but no one's replies have convinced me that NS's pro-settlement propaganda fits WFMU's inclusive, freeform ethos.

ooh typing fast hope i'll be eligible for the s.y. cds
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- as a totally web-based listener, I'm not exposed to JM in the AM whatsoever. No problem there! If he's raising 1/3rd of the budget for the best music/culture/community station on earth - which is totally commercial-free, I'm grateful.
...I think most Americans are neither 100% pro nor anti-Israel - & altho' I don't know the JM program, I'd guess it's about a lot more than the settlement question or one view on it. My politics are pretty Leftist & I consider your point - but you just can't always get what you want. Also - no one is censoring you or even hating. That's good.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:47am kuba:

...or does that work by phone only?
  Wed. 3/18/15 8:47am Dave Emory:

Nachum is a good guy.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:48am Caryn:

@kuba: until 9 a.m., it's web-only, so type away! Just put in the comment box on the final pledge page that you'd like to be in the SY drawing.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:50am kuba:

what comment box! DANG :)
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:51am Caryn:

On the page with your shipping address etc., below the address stuff and above the payment options, on the right there's a box for additional info/comments/etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/18/15 8:53am Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for providing the good instructions, Remote Volunteer Caryn!
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:53am kuba:

too late! ah well. never pledge under stress, i guess :)
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:53am Caryn:

@kuba: but hey, if you already pledged, there's still a decent chance you can get the SY even if you didn't specify it. There's (unfortunately) been such a limited amount of pledges so far that your odds are pretty good.
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:54am kuba:

awww... and thanks for your help!
Avatar Wed. 3/18/15 8:55am Caryn:

@Ken from HP & kuba: no probs! Heck, what else is there to do while listening in, might as well be of some use.
