Good old blizzard noises. That takes me back!

The pizza outside my window is attempting to harmonize with this track.
  12:03pm other david:

Live from a mic situated on top of the WFMU global headquarters...
  12:04pm Naval Etiquette:

Captain Ken lashes himself to the mast and goes down with the good ship FMU as it slides into the Hudson and floats out to sea.
  12:05pm Carmichael:

Ken takes one for the team! And the pizza ingredients miraculously remain attached to the dough! Remember Domino's, Ken: 30 minutes or it's FREE!
  12:05pm amEdeo:

Oh no.
  12:06pm NWS:

This has to be spun at 78 to qualify as a hurricane.
  12:06pm Michele:

YES! That hurricane pizza gif is the BEST!
  12:06pm Maggie B.:

Who's gonna clean all this mozzarella off my house?

This is a perfect time to take everybody's man. They're all distracted by the pizza!

Auntie Em, Auntie Em, itza flyin' pizza pie.
  12:07pm Roberto:

  12:09pm amEdeo:

Has anyone ever tried combining "Love Up" and "Physical" by Olivia Newton-John? I feel like that would work...
  12:09pm Roberto:

Oh man. $100 minimum for the War on Christmas CD. That's extortion, plain and simple.
  12:09pm pierre:

Bonjour Ken and listeners !
Drôle d'endroit pour un rencontre.

i was hoping for a gluten free hurricane
  12:10pm Grand Funk:

Is "cc"stello a drug reference?
  12:11pm amEdeo:

@dale: You too?! Whose to say that's not gluten free crust?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Ken:

Happy Horrorcane everybody!
  12:12pm Gluten:

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
  12:12pm Tom - K'way Bklyn:

Spelt the other white meat ......
  12:13pm amEdeo:

Spelt is just as bad (for me at least). Too close to wheat.
Spelt, the other white wheat.
  12:13pm dale:

that's the same sound superman makes when he takes off
  12:14pm moose:

yay yay yay

  12:14pm Sound Effects Guy:

@dale: duh! :)
  12:15pm the glowing one:

Is WFMU still standing? Any walls shaking or windows rattling yet? Also Ken, you're the captain, you will be the last man standing...
  12:15pm Snoopy:

Oh my god the drizzle! Fo shizzle!
  12:16pm Jon Anderson:

We used this sound in "South Side of the Sky". Right off an effects album.
  12:16pm Carmichael:

Glad to hear Ken is manning NORAD by himself.
  12:16pm Traffic Authorities:

@Ken: Expect a citation in the mail.
  12:17pm Hall & Oates: Musical Gods:

have no fear, hall & oates would help guide us all through this storm. now if Ken would only play some............
  12:17pm Carmichael:

Skype, Ken, skype!! I bet you're dressed like the Morton Salt girl right now.
  12:18pm G:

There were three full hours of you on Mary Wing last week, h&o. The most radioplay you've gotten in nearly 30 years.
  12:19pm Hall & Oates: Musical Gods:

G: it's not the same as when Ken plays Hall & Oates.
  12:19pm G:

Didn't PATH close at midnight? That's what I heard on radio weather coverage...
  12:20pm moose:

yep path is down
  12:21pm Minnesota Jeff:

I hate cavemen.
  12:22pm Carmichael:

Turntables on impulse power only, Captain. Shields are holding but weakening. I need two hours to get the warp drive back online. Ach Kant change the laws of science!!!!
  12:22pm dale:

oooh, wonder what martian boogey would sound like at 16rpm?
  12:22pm Robinson Crusoe:

WFMU DJs, shipwrecked in JC. Where is Your Man Monday?
  12:22pm green mountain man mark:

wind is starting to pick up here in central VT. Have one cat outside that does not want to come in yet. Someone already took down the political signs around our street. I was going to go around and karate kick them all down and pick them up.
  12:23pm Hall & Oates: Musical Gods:

is this the storm that the Mayans predicted? or was that Nostradamus. hmm
  12:23pm G:

What is it about hurricane hype that says 70s funk n soul?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Ken:

Help is on the way dont you worry!

I dated them Butt sisters. Some threesome! :)
  12:25pm MrFab:

Hey, I actually get to listen to Ken live for once. Howdy!

Stay high 'n' dry, y'all, and I ain't talkin' medical marijuana high, har har.

("Troglodyte" sounds great at 33, mo' funky.)

Does music always slow down during an Al Frankenstorm?
  12:27pm BSI:

My dog refuses to go outside. Those sad eyes... looks like he's being asked to tear his lungs out. By noon tomorrow I predict he will a'splode mit der wee.
  12:27pm G:

@DJFF: Dude's gotta fill 90 minutes, cut him some slack :-)
  12:28pm green mountain man mark:

I am not sure I am going to make it to the fair this year. Not really because of the storm but a bunch of strange crap that has happened. Plus don't know if the train service will be back on from VT to the city. Last year because of Irene it was down for many days. My sneeze at the sun box may need to wait for another time.

Something vaguely early-Sparks-ish about this Just Water track...

I have to admit that I shaked my booty a lot to Falco. Ja.
  12:41pm Loss Prevention:

Ken's gotsta make sure the staff don't walk off with the station under cover of Hurricane Hype. "Ken, everything just floated away, we couldn't do anything!!!"

Ken is the man. He has the secret government card to bypass all road blocks and he has a vespa to make it out of town in time safely before the Zomneys arrive.

Strokin' should have the animated gif from the last 7SD marathon show up (archive STILL unavailable!)
  12:43pm m:

There's this whole genre of songs about stroking or staying up all night, doing it, all night! African American primarily I believe. I wonder if anyone has every written about it. The man is usually making promises....
  12:44pm Van in DC:

It's not bad yet, but still. Fire alarm goes off in my apartment so we all had to go stand out in a hurricane lol
  12:44pm Sandy:



Muchas gracias, Arthur Brown!

Nine months from now the other fruits of this hurricane will be delivered.

We're already seeing JG Ballard-esque signs of post-apocalyptic societal breakdown here in Hoboken NJ: Over by the cresting river, nobody's cleaning up their doggie poop! Who knows what's next...
  12:46pm Listener zero:

This is a great song.
  12:46pm Caryn:

During all these hurricane shows, I always wonder what it's like to live somewhere where these things happen. Apart from extreme cold, snowstorms (and the very rare high wind), no "extreme weather" in these parts. No wonder people in the US can get extreme about issues. It's the fault of the weather.

I trust Clay Pigeon packed his overnights bag.
  12:54pm Michele:

Emergencies make for great radio! Make sure there is enough paper in the EAS machine.
  12:54pm Essex County:

No love for me
  12:54pm Caryn:

Essex County has a dirty name.

Aha, price gouging! More apocalyptic societal breakdown!
  12:55pm Listener zero:

I LOVE WFMU programming during natural catastrophes almost as much as marathon programming.
  12:56pm Sean:

Is the Clay hurricane show going to be an annual event?

Sandy is a grandiose finale to the silent fundraiser, actually. All that money raised, then it gets washed down the drain... haha.

haha my office in CLE is closing at 1pm because of the Light Drizzle storm! PANIC IN THE MIDWEST!!

Just tell Gomez it's safe to go outside and pee. He won't believe me anymore. But YOU, Ken (or Clay), he would trust YOU...
  12:59pm fred von helsing:

Irene in Manhattan was 4 ft, a foot short of topping the seawalls
  12:59pm Caryn:

@glowing one: This will just lead to the "31 days of October" being immediately followed by "New-wave-ember", a silent fundraising month to repair hurricane damage.
  1:00pm a.:

long beach island is getting hit hard. the boardwalk is washing away in atlantic city & ocean city, md. hoboken terminal is flooded and red hook is underwater. be safe, wfmu listeners.
  1:00pm Vicki:

Ken just did a timecheck - Clay Pigeon influence there
  1:01pm Hall & Oates: Musical Gods:

Hurricane Irene ultimately came ashore as a tropical storm in Coney Island, with a 4-foot storm surge that washed over parts of the southern tip of Manhattan but didn't wreak the havoc that officials had feared, although it caused tremendous damage elsewhere. Some experts have said that a surge 3 feet higher could have caused huge damage.
  1:01pm fred von helsing:

The studio on the hill will be assaulted by seaborne cannibals and aluminum can collectors
  1:01pm G:

Irene was mainly rain-caused flooding, not storm surge
  1:02pm yayson:

ken, the last line of defense
  1:03pm tahomajohn:

Make thee an ark of gopher wood!
  1:04pm Rob:

The storm surge stats are really confusing. Around 8 pm is supposedly peak. But Gov. Cuomo says the storm surge NOW is already @ Irene levels - which means it's already partway to the worst-case 11 ft. (So I would think that means there aren't actually 11 MORE feet to go, but some amount less than that - or does it - ?)
  1:04pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Gutted that Irene's show is cancelled but I am guessing things are pretty grim weather wise with you guys
  1:04pm Vicki:

hey that's me, sounding slow or maybe I just think it's the wrong speed - no, definitely wobbling :)
  1:05pm G:

"Numerous boats were damaged or destroyed, killing two people off Staten Island. High winds swept a man off a bridge, killing him. High waves flooded the beach at Coney Island. In Sea Bright, New Jersey, waves washed over a seawall, forcing 200 people to evacuate. Further inland, the Hudson, Passaic, and Hackensack rivers experienced tidal flooding."
  1:05pm Snortley: for excellent weather-porn. Check out their interactive map, like Google Maps for weather addicts:,0039,0017&zoom=9
  1:05pm other david:

"New Jersey local media are receiving reports that waves are topping 20ft (6m), and storm surge is expected to get worse during high tide." - ye olde beeb
  1:06pm xangoir:

ken, listening from narragansett bay in Rhode Island. I read this article earlier today which has details of the flood levels during Irene:
  1:06pm jamesie:

Hi Vicki!
  1:06pm Vicki:

are you using a windup turntable?
  1:06pm Vicki:

hi James!
  1:07pm xangoir:

in particular: "On August 28, 2011, Tropical Storm Irene brought a storm surge of 4.13' and a storm tide of 9.5' above MLLW to Battery Park on the south side of Manhattan. "
  1:07pm paul martin:

Sounds fine vicki!
  1:08pm m:

do most experts feel this or its strength can be attributed to global warming?
  1:08pm Vicki:

did I just drag you in from fb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Ken:

The noise you hear on this song (Subway Sect) is water residue from hurricane irene.
  1:09pm fred von helsing:

more surreals sandy pleez. a rubber duck warehouse upchucking its contents.
  1:09pm Caryn:

Aagh! WFMU page and stream both went down here for 10 minutes! For a moment, I wondered if something had gone seriously wrong over there. Thankfully, that was not the case.
  1:10pm paul martin:

You did, it works and it is Soo much better!
  1:10pm Carmichael:

These cats are swingin'. I bet they have matching sweaters on.

No vicki, it wasnt you this time.

reminds me of the the North Sea blowing up a gale in the Radio London pirate dayz on the US converted minesweeper
  1:13pm PMD:

Hey... Is today Wednesday?
  1:14pm MrFab:

We may not have weather here in LA, but we had a 3.9 earthquake yesterday. tWhich was, like, was 2 seconds of excitment.

Hi Vicki! When's the next season of Do or DIY? You're overdue!
  1:14pm other david:

nope, it's freeform in a storm
  1:14pm Vicki:

ha ha, I thought my new record was broken - I've not listened to it yet!
  1:14pm Paul Martin:

We needed WFMU in the Blitz!
  1:15pm Vicki:

hi Mr Fab! Don't know actually! Bit busy.
  1:15pm moose:

  1:17pm Mass Transit Fascists:

We know how to keep businesses from requiring people to try to come in. JUST SHUT TRANSIT. Ta-da!!!!!!!!!
  1:18pm NWS:

It's gonna rain. YA HEARD?!?!?!?!
  1:18pm PMD:

Oh, Sandy baby. Duh.
  1:19pm a.:

seriously, shutting down mass transit was probably anti-fascist. this way, our fascist bosses are less likely to require us to come in under these dangerous conditions.
  1:19pm NWS:

Eleven feet??? That's practically a FUCKIN' MILLIPEDE right there!!!!

Ooh, PMD is right. Ken, play every song you can never play regularly because of the swearing!
  1:23pm FCC:

  1:23pm MrFab:

Yessss, "Blind Man's Penis"!! Hey trivia fans, 'twas originally called "Stevie Wonders' Penis." But that would have been, ya know, offensive.

  1:25pm Irene:

  1:27pm chris:

I'm sitting here wondering just how proud Irene must be of the job you're doing filling in for her, Ken. You really get her show. That said, this is pretty freakin' awesome!
  1:27pm Caryn:

I wonder if one day it will be revealed that the Weather Underground site is actually run by former members of the Weather Underground organization. That would be awesome. (At least cooler than running a Volvo dealership, or whatever some of those other 60s/70s' radicals are doing now.)

oh, you cruel temptress, hula girl...
  1:38pm gomoonpie:

  1:42pm Humbert:

  1:42pm BSI:

Mrs. Hippie Queen vs. Donut Queen. Cage-match of the century.
  1:42pm PMD:

At this rate Ken will never run out of 7" es.
  1:43pm Humbert:

Donut Queen will cover the "spread" every time.
  1:45pm Caryn:

You know, all you hula girl lovers could just watch Ep. 1.3 of "Lost Girl" and watch her do that in non-gif form.
  1:48pm Col. Bicuspid:

It seems ridiculous that Ken, filling in for Irene because she can't get to the station is only at 41%of his goal. Pledge people!
  1:50pm dale:

i had to look that up. she's a succubus? no thanks - been there, done that!
  1:51pm fred von helsing:

Ken needs a flood detector alarm text message thingie in his basement. Any Arduino hackers around there?

Hula girl also speaks Russian, if any of you find that to be an extra kick.

  1:59pm Fuzzy:

Horrible edit of that song
  2:00pm Ike:

Uh oh, the power went out here in Newark for a few minutes. I gotta juice up the Walkman so I can keep listening to WFMU in case the power goes down again....
  2:00pm Dr. Evil:

  2:15pm Carmichael:

Ken has junk in his trunk.
  2:16pm Caryn:

Still haven't cracked open my "Phantasm" box set in the flying sphere box. Maybe I'm worried that if I open the box with the sphere in it, it'll attack...
  2:16pm Julie:

He needs to reenact that moment!

I don't much like John Mellencamp either, but I'd love to hear Clay Pigeon sing more of it! SING IT!
  2:23pm john & wendy:

Did you bring "You're Gonna Die" by Destroy All Monsters with you?
  2:23pm jamesie:

I second the Destroy All Monsters request.
  2:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane

Gotta love Lulu. Of course, since I saw Jimi Hendrix play a Cream cover on her tv show as a tribute right after Cream announced they were breaking up, I've had a soft spot for the lass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Dervish:

@Dave E
Irene was last year. We're all into DJ Sandy now.
  2:25pm Vancouver, Before Christ:

We're still busy digging out from the tsunami debris following our DisastroQuake.
  2:25pm Julie:

  2:26pm Dave E::

Has anyone noticed that the hurricanes with woman's names are severe?
  2:26pm dale:

i heard lou reed doing edgar allen poe's the raven and it had me laughing my ass off
  2:26pm Ike:

@KFHP, I'm sure we all love you, but that's the laziest hurricane song suggestion EVER in the history of the universe. Scorpions are worse than Mellencamp. Indie cred forever!
  2:26pm Vicki:

disembarking the plane returning from NY yesterday they were playing "How Long Has This Been Going On" which I thought was rather funny for a longhaul flight
  2:27pm Bruce:

Hey my radar shoes a pizza or am I hungry

  2:29pm Giorgio Moroder:

I recorded this EXACT beat, back in '77! Why did I not release it then, and get a leg up in the competition?!
  2:29pm Bruce:

Here is a not so lazy song suggestion "Her I Cane!" by the Filipino Gum Chewers
  2:30pm fred von helsing:

Funkin' into the wind
  2:30pm Math Minor:

Don't tease me, bro!
  2:32pm Ike:

Uh oh, my electricity just wavered again.
  2:32pm green mountain man mark:

Anything slowed the hell down is good. I once had a record player that you could go down to 16 on it. can't find many like that anymore. It was for the talking books for blind people so that you could listen for a very long time to just recorded voice with out needing to keep flipping or changing records.
  2:32pm Show Prep Manual:

When you don't have much time to preplan a show, just heade for your overstuffed file of cheesecake JPEGS and GIFS. They "go" well with EVERYTHING
  2:33pm Hurricane Mitch:

I dropped a heap-load of rain when I came through in 1998.
  2:33pm ?:

  2:34pm Jay/ London:

Turns bubblegum pop into No Wave!
  2:34pm Carmichael:

Vargas, baby! Now we're talkin' cheesecake.
  2:34pm Caryn:

Looking forward to 2014's Hurricane Nana. Seriously? Not that 2013's Hurricane Wendy or Hurricane Chantal have me quaking in my boots. But 2017's Hurricane Ophelia is gonna be nuts, if her Shakespearean namesake is anything to go by.
  2:35pm seang:

  2:35pm sister sludge:

  2:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

  2:37pm other david:

Stay safe folks.
  2:38pm tim from champaign:

Although Champaign is the home of REO Speedwagon and Starcastle, it's definitely more of a John Cougar type of joint. I regularly refer to Champaign as Lil Pink Houses, IL.
  2:38pm common:

thank you both! suckin on chilly dog outside the tastey freeze!
  2:38pm Caryn:

How come "Sticky Sticky" just brings to mind the new Neil Young album? I think it's the "bunch of drunk people noodling in the studio" vibe.
  2:38pm jamesie:

drown, Wall St., DROWN!
  2:38pm FCC:

  2:39pm Detroit Mac:

My 1st concert at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit ('68) was: MC5, Sly and the Family Stone and top billed... The Fugs!
  2:39pm Matt from Springfield:

  2:39pm Wall Street:

Occupy are at ground level :-) :-)
  2:40pm Matt from Springfield:

  2:40pm Mayor Daley:

  2:40pm Detroit Mac:

  2:41pm Robert:

Looking forward to Jim Price getting out of his rowboat and rushing in, stretching his show to a full 3 hour shift to spell Ken.
  2:42pm Rahm Emmanuel:

Hey, CL :P
  2:43pm Robert:

Has the trailer in the alley/parking lot blown over yet?
  2:44pm dale:

  2:44pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

  2:44pm BSI:

  2:45pm G:

@Robert: Just wait till the starving and desperate post-flood hordes are gathered around the building with axes, to get at that breakroom cornucopia of weeks-old fridge food.
  2:46pm Caryn:

Laser face? Did he get shot by the laser vagina?
  2:46pm fear & hope:

All hail RERecs.
  2:46pm green mountain man mark:

I have to go to the dentist at 3:15. It is a short walk away. They have a country station or something like that usually playing when I am there. The new kind of country. Wonder if those new kinda dumb country would sound good slowed way the fuck down.
  2:48pm G:

  2:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Hey hey, now, take a chill pill and enjoy the splendid beauty of nature, even when it's in a passionate rebellion (or as Bob Ross calls it, a "chill stick"...)
  2:50pm Itumac:

By what magic do these memetastic images appear? Be there a vault some where? Or is it an instagram filter that changes an album cover into vintage art?
  2:50pm Caryn:

To get some respite from the news, turned over to a channel where they promised cute baby deer. Aww, sleeping deer. Aww, taking it's first steps. Then, literally 5 seconds after that: "We just got a call that the baby deer died." WTF?!? I turned to this channel for something uplifting, dammit!
  2:50pm Matt from Springfield:

I suspect the cartoon idea of overfilling your bicycle wheels until they're the size of floatation devices is not gonna work in real life.
  3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Tape your pencils down, everyone! Erasers too!
