Listener comments!

  12:07am John McCabe in L.A.:

  12:08am Adam:

Top of the midnight to you, Therese, and fellow listeners!

At the risk of repeating myself: FREE LIBYA!
  12:08am Robert:

I guess the marathon has formally started, but practically speaking it's not worthwhile to staff overnight with volunteers to take pledges. So I guess you're on your own.
  12:10am Thersee:

Good evening!

Robert, the marathon starts in just under 9 hours- Liz Berg will kick it off.
  12:14am WFU Idiot:

aaah Therese. my happy place. err that sounds wierd but true.
  12:15am yar:

7:14AM, just woke up. got no idea what iis my name or where am I.
  12:15am Marmalade Kitty:

Nice bit of Stereolab!
  12:16am Therese:

Oh man, I spelled my own name wrong in that last comment. This bodes well for the next 2 hours and 45 minutes.
  12:17am Robert:

Huh. So Nachum Segal doesn't have the honor? I understood, at least as of a few years ago, he was the biggest fundraiser.
  12:17am Pat from Toronto:

  12:17am Marmalade Kitty:

  12:18am WFU Idiot:

yar did that last week. Only alot later
  12:18am dan in Falls Church VA:

Hi John McCabe, any relation to McCabe's Music?
  12:18am Jack:

Still buzzing from an Oscar pool, I am now trying to predict which songs you will play. So far I'm 0 for 4.
  12:19am Adam:

Yar, indeed! Comrade DJ, we all err...Maybe you were just using unconventional spelling, like this song title?

Pigeon English comments from a hungry kitty-kitty? Shocking, or Shattuck?
  12:21am yair:

yea, and i misspelled my own name as well.
still didn't wake up. eyes half shut, fingers mover by themselves
  12:21am Marmalade Kitty:

  12:22am Therese:

Robert- yes, JM's marathon also starts tomorrow. But Liz's show kicks off the Freeform effort.
  12:22am Adam:

Now that's a bloomin' title!

Kitty, we're all free: but I know a cat-bird sitting when I encounter one.
  12:23am Danne D:

HI Therese and everyone!
Will have to catch this on the archive :(
But I wanted to give you a shoutout - off to a great start playing wise even if the spelling is off ;)

Had to take a peek at the JM page (even though I'm a lapsed Catholic and the tchotchkes look pretty cool I have to say.
  12:25am Danne D:

And if someone hasn't already done so you bigwigs out there should adopt Therese :)

Have a good night! Gooooooo FMU :)
  12:28am Adam:

Olive and Bosco are awfully cute, to say nothing of our esteemed disc jockey and hostess...Good night, Danne D!
  12:28am Therese:

Thanks, Danne! Yes, I am up for adoption. I promise I require very little care and feeding.
  12:30am Robert:

So there's now a distinction between JM in the AM's fundraising and the Freeform fundraising? Interesting. Of course, maybe it's been that way for 15 yrs. and I'm just catching on.
  12:32am Adam:

Butter and Rooster are super-cute, too...
  12:32am Marmalade Kitty:

Adam, you are a prize Knob!
  12:32am Therese:

Nope, the money all goes into the same pot!
  12:36am yair:

share your twitter nick!
  12:37am Adam:

Well, I hate to boast...Oscar agnosticism has is merits, as does My Bloody Valentine...mic open?
  12:37am corey:

eek! therese! I can hear you doin' stuff over th' moozik!
  12:37am Close Listener:

Therese, turn off your mic. We can hear you fumbling with CD jewel cases.
  12:38am Adam:

Just a few CD cases, innocent enough...
  12:38am Robert:

So...shouldn't you say THE marathon begins at 6? Same phone bank, right?
  12:50am Jack:

Ah Kirsty, we miss you....
  12:50am Therese:

Yup, same # to pledge to JM- 800-989-9368
  12:51am Therese:

We certainly do, Jack.
  12:51am Esteban:

This song by Kirsty M. is just too damn catchy to not like.
  12:54am Esteban:

Orange juice!!!!! Yay!
  12:57am Adam:

OJ! Yes! Same friend who suggested seeing humor in Morrissey also introduced me to Orange Juice. Good pompadour, again.
  12:59am Robert:

So do you overnight (ELT) on-air folks get to help out by doubling up on-mike with other DJs' programs during the marathon?
  1:00am Adam:

For future adoption, Therese, can you recommend that WFMU (or you personally?) acquire, or if need be, comission a Shuggie Otis velvet painting?
  1:03am Adam:

...er, "commission"...Google images reveals he a had an interstellar Afro, aside from being a studio badass....
  1:05am Marmalade Kitty:

The out-dated term, "..coals to Newcastle". The UK (Newastle Upon Tyne)sources most of it's coal from abroad..
Ringo Death Starr is a gret name!
  1:06am coalhard:

  1:07am Adam:

John Wilkes Booth Review? Cameltoe Lights?
  1:07am Esteban:

Adam, pompadour *and* troubadour. Can't go wrong. I think it's fair to say that OJ's frontman (Collins?) is far more schmaltzy than Morrissey. Ok, I suppose that is debatable.
  1:07am yair Yona:

Fmu should play Xtc's Fly On The Wall , for the entire week
  1:08am yair Yona:

Fmu should play Xtc's Fly On The Wall , for the entire week
  1:10am Adam:

Esteban, I found Edwyn Colliins (it turns out) more understated than Morrissey, and (not me) read several comments accusing the latter of imitation. But, hey, that's the highest form of flattery, and 50% or more of all rock 'n' roll, probably most popular and other culture, to boot.
  1:12am Marmalade Kitty:

..coals to Newcastle was an ironic term. Newcastle was a primary distributer of coal until...70's/80's.
Didn't you know that Coalhard? :) Oops did I p[ost twice..?
  1:12am Adam:

Yair Yona, you might love "Urgh! A Music War," an early '80s concert anthology film featuring XTC and many, many others. Copyright headaches made it a reissue nightmare, but I was encouraging everyone to check out that movie during Martha's show before you woke up.
  1:13am coalhard:

good info--thanks mk!
  1:15am Esteban:

Yeah, I don't care if Collins is (was) a poor man's Morrissey— and by "poor" I mean "Irish" or "Scottish" or "Welsh"—because I love 'em both.
  1:16am Adam:

Coalhard, Marmalade, Esteban, I just saw a BBC doc called "Lefties." The third episode, "A Lot of Balls" was about a stillborn radical newspaper launched in 1987. Coal, industry and new wave got me thinking about it again, and it gives an interesting take on the subject.

Collins is a Scot, and it was alleged, a precursor to Morrissey.
  1:17am coalhard:

i'm in west virginia-used to be part of england till the continents split millions years ago
  1:17am Esteban:

Ok, so "coals to Newcastle" was ironic…but why are we talking coal, anyway? :) I'm serious.
  1:18am Marmalade Kitty:

Football: one of the few chances of "escaping" the pit was to become a pofessional footballer! Like 'wor Jackie Milburn :) Geordies, eh?
  1:19am coalhard:

wasn't me--i just saw chance to chime in
  1:19am Adam:

West Virginia settled so heavily by Scots, Scotch-Irish Ulsterfolk and north English.

I had family in Alderson, and have family across the border a ways in Uniontown, PA, another broken coalmining town.
  1:20am Esteban:

Adam, did you watch this Lefties on iplayer (the BBC video service), or was it obtained via the interwebz?
  1:25am Esteban:

Shoot, it's 1:25, I have to get some sleep.
  1:26am Adam:

Marmalade Kitty had noticed the title of the Orange Juice album and noted the irony of deindustrialization in Newcastle, yes? As I'd imagine the band did, too.

Esteban, I did not attempt it on any proper BBC video service (is that free?). I watched it on YouTube. Part I, "Property Is Theft" is about squatters, some of whom are Trotskyists, others into primal scream therapy, who settled a particular London neighborhood in the 1970s. Part II, "Angry Wimmin," looks at set of increasingly militant and predominantly lesbian movements in the later 1970s and into the mid-'80s. The aforementioned conclusion is about the failed launch of "News On Sunday," a Marxist tabloid that not only failed to unseat Thatcher, but to survive the year.

Fascinating. I shan't bore y'all with the other programs I found reposted, but one: the parallel story "Tory! Tory! Tory!" on the rise on fall of the Iron Lady. Same filmmakers, I believe, and availabile on the interweb.
  1:27am Marmalade Kitty:

Esteban, or try channel - 4oD.. documentaries
  1:29am Adam:

Good night, Esteban! Good call, Marmalade: they were both made for BBC Four.
  1:30am coalhard:

it is 6:30 am in england--if you are there?
  1:35am Adam:

I'm in Chicago, but WFMU can reach them--listeners in England, ahoy?
With no cable, I've been reduced to killing time with thoughtful television about history and politics, and after hearing a lot of British music of that era, got more curious recently about postwar politics there. One thing led to another.
  1:37am WFU Idiot:

Ah. No and I got work at 7:00 tomorow. So gotta sign off really soon.
  1:37am Esteban:

Adam, I love all this stuff you're mentioning (BBC docs on Thatcher, etc.). Like many poor kids, I grew up without cable TV. So, what was one to do except watch PBS and explore the radio? PBS basically turned me into an Anglophile (whatever), thigh I am loathe to admit it. Check out the "Au pairs" for some feminist punk of the Thatcher era—can't recall more than 2-3 albums. The Au Pairs were featured in some ancient documentary on feminist musicians in early 80's (25 minutes, three bands profiled, made for UK in mid eighties).
  1:40am Adam:

Au Pairs are in "Urgh!" doing "Come Again"! One of them became an activist lawyer?
  1:41am Adam:

Therese, what's up? I did taxes for years, and that's weird. Had you already paid?
  1:42am WFU Idiot:

Next year come to my house. I got the software and we can have way more fun doing taxes.
  1:42am Marmalade Kitty:

The BBC accept pledges, but rely most on the enforcement of "TV-licensing" payments. £150/60 annually, per household..
Watching BBC radio is free, although funded by the liscence fee. Adam, I'm sure you already knew that..
  1:43am Esteban:

Final random thought (on topic of Thatcher)—"Thatcher on Acid" has one fantastic album, it's the one with "Clockwatching" on it. You may like it. Also, when I was a kid, I liked the "Adrian Mole" book/Tv series on Thatcher's England. I have an odd fetish fir the Reagan era. Nostalgia of one's youth, I suppose.
  1:43am Adam:

Chances are, she or one of her loved ones had a problem doing this...tell the prep firm, though. You came in just after peak, (mid-Jan e-file start date until approx Valentine's Day) so your preparer was glad to chit-chat after the hectic part of the season subsided and talked about whatever concerned her.

Her supervisor needs to know that this is bad for customer service in a highly competitive industry. God, being a tax monkey sucked.
  1:45am Adam:

Esteban, I have great fascination with history, but (late) Cold War especially, precisely because I lived through the end of it as a boy.
  1:46am WFU Idiot:

Crap! It's almost 2:00! I really gota go to bed. Good night.
  1:46am avant reguard:

7.39am in berlin, alexanderplatz. blue sky slowly appearing through cold berlin fog. germans up for over 2 hours now efficiently moving from a to b in a not overly excited but logical fashion. ireland expressed their disgust with bankers, right wing govt, the system in their most recent election by voting in as the majority party a more right wing party, their nickname been the blueshirts, not entirely referring to their shirt colour of choice but that does pop up alot. The mind boggles. On a slightly positive note some great independents have been elected so that will be interesting, good show. thx.
  1:47am Adam:

MK, I meant had Therese paid the tax preparation fee at that point in the transaction, prior to being handed her client copies. Sorry, fuzzy context.
  1:47am Esteban:

The Au Pairs are in Ugh! I have to see it now ! Adam, the BBC iplayer is going to be available to folks outside of the UK soon, but we will have limited access (or something like that). It is a "free" (tax dollars, as Marmalade indicated) content delivery system.
  1:49am avant reguard:

try using foxy proxy please god. bbc iplayer is great.
  1:49am Therese:

Adam, no I hadn't paid the preparation fee.
  1:50am Esteban:

Cold War will always fascinate me. You've seen "Atomic Cafe", I'm sure. Crap, I have to go to sleep. I only just discovered that the WFMU phone application had a goddamn chat function!
  1:51am Esteban:

So, scant, if I use a proxy, I trick iplayer into thinking I'm in UK, woohoo! Still, I feel somewhat guilty.
  1:51am Marmalade Kitty:

my context was entirely random, apart from the word pledge.. Just babbling about UK TV/Radio
  1:54am Esteban:

Marmalade, you mentioned channel 4 docs—is this official online website with archived shows? I am only with my phone and multitasking difficult.
  1:54am Adam:

I knew about the licensing fee, aye...in the meantime, YouTube and its siblings have been full of goodies. "Tory! Tory! Tory!" is on Veoh, also. Also
good docs on Michael Foot and Enoch Powell, Labour in the Wilderness Years, and the obligatory Downing Street Years.

Therese, ah, they won't hand over a 1040, or even "signature pages" for eletronic filing, until payment has been received (or arranged to be taken from an anticipated refund big enough to cover the cost). At least, the walk-in retail tax prepartaion chains would not do so: the risk of a customer taking the documents and not paying would be too great.

Then, your over-protective preparer had you hostage. Tell her supervisor. If one of the preparers I supervised had done that, I'd have wanted to know.
  1:56am Marmalade Kitty:

4oD - 4 on demand official channel 4 site
  1:59am SlowFastHazel:

Hello everyone.
  2:03am Esteban:

Thank you Adam, Marmalade, avant and company. Have a good night. :)
  2:03am coalhard:

i just realized --every song we hear on wfmu should be tax deductable--we are contributing to an org--i rest my case
  2:05am SlowFastHazel:

Say "hi" because no one will say it back.
  2:06am Marmalade Kitty:

  2:07am SlowFastHazel:

Thank you Marmalade!
  2:08am Marmalade Kitty:

Are you a stereolab song? :)
  2:08am Adam:

Hi! Beat me to it...looking at BBC Four on Demand listings, Thanks, Marm! I would have guessed Robert Wyatt...
  2:08am SlowFastHazel:

  2:09am Adam:

Soft Machine! It IS Wyatt! Love You, Therese!
  2:11am SlowFastHazel:

Oh haven't heard Slint in forever.
  2:11am Therese:

Thank you!

And yes, speaking of taxes, all contributions to WFMU are tax-deductible!
  2:12am Adam:

God, this one takes me back, too. Had it on a mix tape!
  2:12am Esteban:

Slint! but play the other songs from this album.
  2:12am SlowFastHazel:

Pretty sure it was on the Kids soundtrack
  2:13am andrewwwerdna:

Fuck yeah, this song ruleZ!
  2:13am Adam:

Although, keep in mind, only tax deductible if you are itemizing deductions. If you claim the standard deduction, WFMU and other charitable giving is just you doing something good.
  2:14am Adam:

Give to WFMU if you can afford it! Just clearing up tax issues--old habit, sorry.
  2:17am Adam:

This time of year was always crazy when I worked at a franchise of One of the Big Tax Preparation Chains.
  2:17am SlowFastHazel:

Is this chat traffic from the app alone, or does it include WFMU's website as well?
  2:18am SlowFastHazel:

I'm on the app, and I'm sort of hooked.
  2:18am Adam:

Your superb song choice, and this outstanding website dialogue (no apps for this old boy at present) have kept me from going out for a cigarette....
  2:19am Esteban:

Slow, I'm on phone, but I believe everyone accesses the same online chat.
  2:20am fleep:

The estimated value of premiums reduces the deduction as well, I believe?
  2:20am SlowFastHazel:

Thanks Esteban
  2:20am Esteban:

I'm hooked on the app, too.
  2:22am Esteban:

Adam, I don't smoke, but I started wearing a nicotine patch. I'm afraid I'll start chewing Nicorette gum, soon.
  2:30am Adam:

fleep, good call on deducting the value of a premium! If the donation is over $250, you are supposed to have a statement from the charitiable recipient to be kept in one's records--NOT sent to the IRS.
  2:38am Adam:

Esteban, I'll start chewing my own fingers...I'm waiting until our distinguished DJ speaks again, then I've got to feed this monkey!
  2:38am Esteban:

  2:44am Adam:

1991, a powerful year, and en epic scary song, that "Good Morning, Captain." I first heard it the following year, I think. If my old friend Marc played it for me that fall, props to him for good taste when we were fourteen!
  2:56am fleep:

Thanks for the show Therese, after three hours of watching spoiled brats give each other trophies, I needed the sonic mental floss
  2:57am Esteban:

Shame that the other Slint CD (withe the car? Truck? photo) was weak. I think it was earlier work, but it was anticlimactic. For a similar "disturbing" experience, try Moss Icon's "I'm out here crying, or f@cking, or something" (can't recall song title exactly).
  2:59am Esteban:

To clarify: Moss Icon's song is akin to Slint's "Good Morning, Captain". But similar only in the "unsettled" feeling the listener experiences.
  2:59am Adam:

First rate, Therese!
  3:04am yair:

very cool, i planned on playing this Andrew Liles in my own radio show - Sonar. great EP Monster Munch
