A huge, tremendous, great, believe me, extremely vetted "Baby" to my pal Baby. The same to his astute co-host, Mr. Fine Wine. Cheers Matt! Keep your head up, both of you. Begin the healing right now, with one of the few things in this world that will actually help, #1 hits. Baby!!

i bought a WFMU LP slip pad but i am not sure how to use it. Am i supposed to keep it on under the record or is it just a dust cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 11/12/16 11:45am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good deal, listener jeff. The year before last, S4L folks got these neat radio icons, but the new pledge software doesn't support it. Maybe they'll get that fixed down the road.

I took a hardcover collection of Mad to school when I was some single digit age. The teacher confiscated it, the principle called my parents. My parents said, We know, we gave it to him.
