Listener comments!

  9:02am glenn:

thanks for that nice personalized email, ken.
  9:02am Vicki - DO or DIY:

  9:03am Caryn:

Yay! Ken & Meghan together! It's the super twins!
  9:03am Nathan:

Another coffee Ken?
  9:03am Dave B:

I'll be mousing my pledge tomorrow (payday) and distributing the wealth equitably amongst my favorite shows.

  9:04am trish:

  9:04am Nathan:

I'm pledging next week, I enjoy torturing the Dj's as much as they enjoy torturing us with.. with.. this SCHLOCK!
  9:05am moose:

If I pledge in that way where I spread it out amongst several DJs, will each DJ know later that he or she got my props?
  9:05am Sam:

Good morning! I'm looking forward to seeing Nachum Segal's appearance in the Monk TV movie!
  9:05am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Dave is such a socialist, go Dave!
  9:07am Caryn:

@moose: yep, they'll all know. At least that's what happened last October with my Y3K pledge.
  9:07am Dave B:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08am meghan:

What is up everyone!!!
  9:09am glenn:

i have a feeling socialists keep wfmu alive.
  9:09am Nathan:

Diesen Schlocken Rocken ist nicht Dokken!
  9:09am glenn:

irwin notwithstanding.
  9:13am MD:

You Got it glenn....Good morn and good marathon season to alllllll!!!! Give until you bleed...the kids don't need new shoes!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am meghan:

Pledge NOW everyone! it's right on this page so you have no excuses! or call! 1-800-989-9268
  9:18am Skirkie:

You should also threaten to send a disturbing gif to people who don't pledge.
  9:18am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Please dont send me that GIF, I dont want to regret it!
  9:21am Ŧ๏Ŧ๏ (:

Hey! Morning everybody!
  9:22am EzSezz:

Toke bag?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am Ken:

Moose, the answer is Yes, Yes, 1000 Times YES! The DJs will know you supported them if you divide your pledge up between different shpws.
  9:26am Snortley:

Todt bag!
  9:26am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Will said DJs acknowledge you during their shows?
  9:27am sugarwolf:

A schlepping bag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Ken:

Aaron yes, a pledge card will print out during their show.
  9:28am dc pat:

great cover
  9:28am still b/p:

Totie (Fields) Bag! Brian served up some Totie last week. Totie could be the totem for FMU.
  9:29am Detroit Mac:

I am in the middle of a fight with my wife about how much I can donate to FMU ( and whether or not I can get a puppy).
  9:30am trish:

  9:30am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Well prepare to be disappointed tonight during SSD, I will be pledging to the show yet not getting the premium. As I said on the pledge form. there's legal issues in this state I think against stuff like that.
  9:31am Dave B:

@Detroit Mac - $180, two birds/one stone - ADOPT BOSCO!
  9:31am bbell:

@detroit mac-why do you even discuss this with your wife?
  9:33am Sam:

So many marriages have been destroyed by WFMU
  9:33am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Mac, just let her win, the DJs will understand.
  9:33am Jim:

Fight the power, Aaron!
  9:33am Skirkie:

Feb 29 is Wednesday.

Man you missed out on a lot of cash with that $366 thing.
  9:33am moose of tomorrow:

is a long-term romantic relationship sustainable if one participant doesn't undertand/like wfmu?
ken you'll be thanking me in the future i suppose
i'll be doing my pledging in the wee small hours of tomorrow
  9:36am Sam:

I don't think a relationship is possible if you don't agree on FMU. My last girlfriend didn't like any of the music I like. Big problem. She liked music with melodies and hooks and stuff like that. Whatever!
  9:36am Aaron in Minneapolis:

  9:37am Sam:

I will pledge. I'd like to soak Andy if possible.
  9:37am glenn:

i haven't pledged, before meghan publically shames me.
  9:37am Skirkie:

Yeah yeah, you'll get yer money.
  9:38am God:

Oh Ken, you just simply frustrate me at times..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am meghan:

you know I will Glenn! and I expect to publicly shame you tomorrow as well!
  9:39am Caryn:

Meghan, can't pledge now, since I made a Y3K pledge in October, and am paying that off monthly. Can't afford any more :(
If I win the lottery, or someone dies and leaves me money, WFMU is gonna be getting it, but otherwise...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am meghan:

you are the exception Caryn..... (and you made me 2 mixtapes to give away)
  9:41am Ŧ๏Ŧ๏ (:

Hey, does someone knows what does it means Swag? There's an option that says "No Swag" in the pledge site.
  9:41am Aaron in Minneapolis:

If I do win this Ipad I will actually be donating it to Andy Breckman, he seems like he needs one.
  9:41am glenn:

ooops. i spelled publicly wrong. more shame.
  9:41am who?:

Maybe, Sam. Though I've been with my gal for 10 years, and she continues to sigh and roll her eyes about my long-standing WFMU habit. She listens to pandora radio...then again, one of the stations she tolerates and even chooses sometimes is the "Tom Cruise Crazy" one I set up. So what does that say?
  9:42am Detroit Mac:

Okay-okay I'm doing a $180 pledge (starting out with KEN to try and get the Psychedelic Stooges CD?) spread out over the next week plus (still arguing about the puppy)
  9:42am Mark:

swag is goodies
  9:43am HotRod:

Ken is BOSS!!!! :)
  9:43am Caryn:

@Ŧ๏Ŧ๏: swag means any of the premiums and other stuff you can get when you pledge. If you want to pledge but not receive any of the gifts back, you choose "no swag", but why would you want to?
  9:43am Sam:

Yeah, maybe it's possible. It wasn't her musical taste that caused us to break up anyway, it was more her overall personality and abusiveness.
  9:44am fred von helsing:

Where is the WFMU-branded breakfast cereal filled with marshmallow notes, rests, accidentals, instruments, and heads of DJs
  9:46am hamburger:

ken - still waitin' on yer scotcheroooooos from last year! :)
  9:46am Sam:

Marshmallow dead air......yummy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48am Ken:

What?! The scotcheroos were mailed out months ago. email me at ken at wfmu dot org and i'll rectify it.
  9:49am JJZ:

Hm, how does the swag work this year if you did the pledge for life thing last year.
  9:53am fred von helsing:

@sam that is a band name !
  9:54am Ŧ๏Ŧ๏ (:

Mark, Caryn,

Thanks! I think it's good idea to have the option not to receive the gifts (to save WFMU shipping & handling, etc.).
  9:55am Bas, NL:

Hi Ken! Next Utrecht record fair is April 14th & 15th ;)
  9:56am wild Neil:

Lou Reed is from NJ!!!
  9:57am Dan B From Upstate:

So has anyone made an insurance claim for Lou Reed not coming through?
  9:57am Caryn:

"It makes a pledge for Meghan and Ken, or else it gets the hose again."
  9:58am Skirkie:

Go Nachum!
  9:59am Mark:

Lou Reed is from Long Island
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00am meghan:

Ŧ๏Ŧ๏ ( this is an option!
  10:02am glenn:

caryn rawks.
  10:02am wild Neil:

Can you play this at 45rpm? Please?
  10:05am DSK:

I am a millionaire, and if you can get me out of this latest little pickle I will give you beaucoups bucks.
  10:07am Elwyn:

I should be in bed.

Hey everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am meghan:

  10:08am dc pat:

huh, I never noticed the "get down" part on records before. Maybe it's the kind of music I listen to..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am meghan:

DSK.... is that pickle being in the basement of our Station manager?
  10:11am Mark:

Ken do you know of the new live Wire recording?
  10:11am jeff p:

Wow, this show is WAY better than the show I usually listen to on WFMU
  10:13am Dave B:

@Jeff P - heh....
  10:14am Caryn:

@dc pat: yes, the "get down" part is only found on funk, soul & r&b records. James Brown records are covered in so many "get down" parts, it's hard to tell where each song starts.
@glenn: thanks, I make up for not rocking as much as I used to by rawking every now and then.
  10:15am Caryn:

Plege now, or "Lulu" will never be taken off the turntable!
  10:15am Elwyn:

Wow. Jeff P is outdoing Evil Brady this week.
  10:15am bill:

Brian Turner played Loutallica as soon as it was available
  10:16am Detroit Mac:

Caryn: James also asks us to "Get-up... get on up""
  10:17am Evil Brady:

Go to bed Elwyn...
  10:18am Caryn:

"Lulu" will be followed by Dylan's "Must be Santa" unless at least 3 mouse pledges come in!
@Detroit Mac: well of course, you need to get up if you're gonna get down again. Basically, it's a constant up-and-down motion. Good excercise for your core muscles.
  10:20am Detroit Mac:

Caryn: At least it is better than being "stuck in the middle with you?" (Said with all love - to you!)
  10:23am Caryn:

@Detroit Mac: hah :)

Oh Ken, now we all want to get the Japanese Queen Medley! Put that on your premium next year! Loving the "Nothing Really Matress". I wonder if a Metallica fan has placed a "Nothing Else Matress" next to it?
  10:23am Elwyn:

Need more Japanese Queen...
  10:23am hot hail:

where's the tonetta?
  10:23am HotRod:

Ken - Is your name of Japanese or Gaelic origin???
  10:25am Keith in VT:

  10:25am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Far and away the best thing about this is that they translated all the background panic chatter in the Flash Gordon theme. I wonder what they were saying.
  10:27am Caryn:

@Pete: Now I'm curious whether they actually got the background chatter from the dubbed-into-Japanese "Flash Gordon". That would be awesome.
  10:27am Danne D:

Please tell me that the adorable Bosco has been adopted :(
  10:27am alberto:

haha! "nothing really matress" a good friend of mine always says "matress factory" instead of "matter of fact"
  10:28am Sam:

Ken is a Korean name, isn't it?
  10:28am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I have a friend who speaks Jailic -- the cobbled-together Gaelic the IRA guys taught each other in prison since Her Majesty wouldn't.
  10:31am jt:

  10:32am Detroit Mac:

If Ken would only do a premium CD of this show without the chatter.... THAT would be something!
  10:32am Sam:

And there's Heidi's head right in the picture! Is it on a record player? Or is that a dissection table?
  10:34am Dave B:

W00T to Danne D!
  10:35am Dave B:

Sorry Danne D - misread that. I thought YOU adopted Bosco
  10:35am Detroit Mac:

Heidi is in an Iron Lung (and the photo has been turned 90 degrees counter-clockwise - Back in the days when our parents didn't want us swimming in public pools for fear of polio).
  10:35am Caryn:

@Sam: she's in an iron lung. The camera is just on it's side (or the photo has been flipped).
  10:36am Elwyn:

I've got to go to bed. See ya tomorrow night
  10:37am Caryn:

Okay, Detroit Mac, which one of us owes the other one a coke?
(And dammit, there should be no ' in "its"!)
  10:38am bill:

And money spent on shoes cannot buy booze! Funny how that works
  10:38am dc pat:

just so we're clear, I don't want Loutallica either...Kleenex/Lillput is right on though..
  10:38am Vicki - DO or DIY:

I think it's England
  10:38am glenn:

money spent for booze can not buy signs that say money spent for booze can not buy shoes.
  10:38am Skirkie:

That's Staten Island.
  10:39am bill:

  10:39am dc pat:

  10:40am DSK:

  10:41am Caryn:

And money spent on booze or shoes cannot be used to pledge to WFMU, which is surely the best use for the dough. So forget footwear or liquor, pledge!
  10:42am glenn:

ken's show is the shoes you wear to the liquor store.
  10:43am moose:

is the tonetta album a gatefold?
  10:43am bill:

Sorry dc pat
  10:43am Caryn:

Pledge to WFMU and ask them to pick you up a little something from the head shop next door, and you won't need shoes or booze.
  10:44am glenn:

canadian weirdos represent.
  10:44am other david:

Ken + Meaghan (and a load of other DJ's) - I'll pledge next week when I have some money, promise!
  10:45am dc pat:

Oh, that's ok. I don't need anything anyway..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am meghan:

Other David! I will be looking forward to it!
  10:46am Booze Buyer:

I need shoes? Not getting it.
  10:47am Caryn:

Yay, Diabolik pic! Man, I love that movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am meghan:

alright everyone.... we are HALF way there. Come on! Help Ken make his goal and BEYOND! go go go!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am Ken:

Yes Glenn, the Tonetta LP IS a gatefold!
  10:52am herb:

disturbing pic? wait, the WFMU homepage one of the ladies in patriotic beachwear & straddling bombs - that's pretty disturbing. looks like a porn DR. STRANGELOVE.
  10:53am Missile Riding Lady:

Porn? This is NOTHIN. If only they really unleashed me!
  10:54am Detroit Mac:

Drink the booze - wear the bottles on your feet
  10:57am Teenagers:

We're pretty determined. We have something to prove.
  10:58am Randy in NC:

My 17 YO daughter loves Tonetta!
  10:58am herb:

oh, i posted this yest: i'm gonna add an extra 1% to my donation. bec (1) wfmu hasn't met its goal in past 3 yrs (2) as an in-yr-face to "the 1%" (3) to confuse the wfmu accountants
  10:59am Comments Readers:

@herb: If you're worried about being confusing enough, don't worry.
  10:59am Na'zy sumbuddy:

These booze were made for walkin'....and thaz just whuh they'll do...
  11:01am derp:

does the mouse pledge have to be paid in full for the ipad prize draw?
  11:02am Citadel Clear Channel:

DRAT YOU, FMU! You are escaping our clutches yet again!!!!!
  11:03am Caryn:

I think what Ken means is: behind every Red Grant, there's a Rosa Klebb. But behind every Rosa Klebb is a Blofeld, aka The Man.
  11:03am Funk & Wagnalls:

Did Ken just say "momentaciously"?
  11:04am BT:

Happy birthday Graham Lewis
  11:07am me:

Play me sideways, baby!
  11:10am glenn:

when will somebody do a "hitler rant" abput pledging to wfmu?
  11:11am me:

you get your own hitler rant if you pledge $1000
  11:11am mike noble in the phone room:

I'm on phone #2 and feeling lonely :-(
  11:11am me:

Ken, can you explain the process of eligablization?
  11:12am Caryn:

Why is Hitchcock giving us the finger?
  11:13am herb:

eek, ken is dying? of slime disease? sorry to hear. uh, when is the estate sale???
  11:13am richard:

Kraftwerk/MOMA tickets on sale in 48 minutes. Just a little less exciting than Ken's Marathon show...
  11:13am glenn:

because we never gave him an oscar? or did we? i don't remember.
  11:13am zoran:

dan bodah talked about whitney!
  11:14am Ghost of Harry N.:

You put da Lyme in da Kennynut, put em bot' togedduh...
  11:14am Caryn:

Ken is on "medical" marijuana. At least that's what he tells the cops... I mean, The Man.
  11:15am Vicki - DO or DIY:

I have Ken on video trying to give a homeless person his car change out of his window and they weren't paying attention so missed it and he shouted "you're an idiot! I'm trying to give you money!" :)))
  11:15am Chris Christie:

Medical marijuana, winkwink
  11:18am bill:

Ken - You can cure Lyme disease with lots and lots of garlic pills. My wife and kid have done it.
  11:18am Danne D:

@Dave B :( no my adoption is pending. I just figured Bosco was so cool that getting adopted wasn't an issue!
  11:19am Danne D:

Memo to self: #8.

Btw, sorry I used the online pledge, I woulda called ya instead Mike Noble had I known :)
  11:20am bill:

That's actually Keef laying down the law. He's actually pretty impressive at that moment
  11:21am Danne D:

My adoption is no longer pending :) I've officially adopted the wonderful AmNazz :)
  11:21am Sam:

Tons of medical pot will get rid of lyme disease.
  11:21am armalade Kitty:

@Sam;Kengo is Japanese.. Yay!I've been looking for that Flex Unger track!Thanks for that Ken & Meghan
  11:22am Caryn:

@Sam: you won't be cured of Lyme disease, but you'll stop caring about it :)
  11:22am Mark:

if you give me tons of medical marijuana I'll get rid of anybody's lyme disease
  11:23am Danne D:

Lookit that face:

Just think, if you do a pre-paid pledge of just $180 (that's not even 50 cents a day) you can adopt Bosco :) And Meghan still has to feed and house him! Win/win!
  11:23am Sam:

Caryn - even better! That's how painkillers work - you still feel the pain but you're too happy to care.
  11:23am Danne D:

Surprised Ken brought up a boat - WFMU doesn't have a great history with boats (see Seven Second Delay remote)
  11:25am Skirkie:

I may have spotted Bosco on one of my evening runs last week. I'd've gladly adopted him if I could have prepaid this year.
  11:25am Vicki - DO or DIY:

you were yelling at him for not seeing you, Ken :)
  11:26am ellefant:

Ken did a pretty good rowboat remote
  11:26am Vicki - DO or DIY:

oh what I saw was a different instance, obviously numerous...
  11:27am Danne D:

This sounds like a great Seven Second Delay - Ken and Andy give out their change.
  11:28am Sam:

It's pronounced Cheesecake.
  11:29am alberto:

yay!!!! flipper!!!!!
  11:30am SteveL:

  11:33am Jeezy:

Thanks again for my special birthdaY show earlier last year, Ken! Is my mouse pledge still in running for iPad if I selected "no swag"? Just wondering though its ALL about WFMU of course...
  11:34am Caryn:

Hurrah, finally Eläkeläiset! BTW Ken, I've been trying to find that Eläkeläiset book for you.
  11:34am Marmalade Kitty:

Meghan, I want to adopt Bosco! :) how much?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am meghan:

Marmalade Kitty he's 180!
  11:35am G:

Is this the JM in the AM stalling tape? :-)
  11:35am Mark:

this melody is remarkably similar to "Sing if You're Glad to Be Gay"
  11:36am Marmalade Kitty:

Meghan, Can you hold him for me 5-10 mins?
  11:37am Caryn:

@Ken: You still want me to translate the Eläkeläiset lyrics for you?
Avatar 11:37am bw:

THIS COULD BE MY LAST MARATHON EVER - ok ken its time for the pity pledges to come flooding in people FLOODING IN
  11:37am Mark:

oh no wonder!
  11:37am giselle:

can you play the "beans with very good butter".. it's been running though my head all week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am meghan:

go Kitty go!!
  11:37am Caryn:

The name of this song, BTW: "Pissed-off Pensioner".
  11:40am ?:

You need the IV Lyme disease method. You can administer it at home to yourself, and take very HOT jacuzzi type baths, the heat and meds make you sweat out the poisons. A frind got rid of it this way. I've had 2 bouts of the oral method, a waste of time, but the insurance companies don't authorise anything else. If you can get IV, as Arnie says "DO IT".
  11:42am monica:

So can we have a Ken Goes To Heaven R.I.P. photoshop contest?
  11:44am Jeezy:

Are we allowed to suspend monthly payments for a mouse pledge should Ken expire? Not sure I would support a Ken-less WFMU...
  11:45am lex:

surrounded by a floating ring of pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. Pickle ballons and landing in a bed of blintzes.
  11:46am Mark:

we're all dying, really
  11:46am John McCabe in L.A.:

funny I'm dying of lemon disease
  11:46am monica:

and doves.
  11:48am Caryn:

Ken, remember to leave your show's pledges to WFMU in your will!
I say: fake your death this weekend, wait for the condolence pledges to roll in, and after the marathon is over, turn up as your "identical twin" Ben and resume your work.
  11:49am MD:

  11:49am Danne D:

YAY! Bosco :)
  11:49am julie:

Bosco adoption! yay!
  11:50am The Scotcheroo Fairy:

How come that douchebag drunk tooth fairy gets all the press? I'll kick her bony ass.
  11:51am anne:

i love you guys
  11:53am Y nacht:

Instead of getting Kraftwerk tickets in 7 minutes, pledge to Ken!
  11:55am Caryn:

The limiting of Kraftwerk tickets does have one advantage: people will have money left to pledge to WFMU!
  11:55am some other guy:

Don't be silly. The only choice is The Man-Machine.
  11:58am Marmalade Kitty:

I want to walk Bosco! :)
  11:59am Danne D:

@Marmalade :) Honestly, Bosco is the most well behaved dog :)
  12:00pm Danne D:

Congrats Scott! :)
Thanks for pledging folks and keep doing so :)

Scramble board! Bosco = Scoob!
