I thought on NPR, Ken was, if not his own worst enemy, his worst enemy's grinning henchman. Mentioning a few of the successful bands and musicians that people often like and who love FMU would have been a good idea, as would have been talking about how free FMU DJs are to express themselves _without_ reference to how disliked a lot of it would be---how much some people _love_ some shows playing things they couldn't readily hear otherwise would have been nice.

As it stood, it sounded like NPR (in the person of the ever-smug Scott Simon, really their worst) saying 'See, if we didn' t stick largely to a bland and unimaginative slurry we'd go out of business like these plucky, bright, but doomed weirdos are going to any day now. '.

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 10:48am Murakami Whywolf:

I like a lot of Nellie McKay's stuff very much, but "Mother of Pearl" seemed like one long 'Agree with me about everything or you're a cave-man jerk.' when in truth there are feminists with attitudes very distinct to hers as regard prostitution, gun control (even though in this case I agree with her), and the possible humour in jokes about Bad Shite, as distinct to Bad Shite itself. (Example of the last: a company's metaphorically screwing me was in itself and its sequelæ profoundly unpleasant...but it's an intensely funny _story_.)

And to imply that your choice in food is either to be vegetarian or to like Big Macs gets it really wrong in the same way as saying that if you don't like NPR you must _loooove_ FOX News <i>[sic]</i>.

(If I disagreed with her about most things, I'd enjoy seeing her getting it wrong.)

Ken: I didn't hear the Lopate interview, but can you really have a conversation with Scott Simon? The man seemingly exists within a gummy shell of self-satisfaction and childhood guilt that makes him, for example, sound apologetic when asking an official Great Man 'So, are you a rapist or are fourteen women lying?'...he' s Keillor without Keillor's occasionally redeeming nasty and left-wing edge. He never seems to really listen---I'd probably be even worse, but I'm not a radio interviewer.

I'm sorry that what I wished you'd done was political-oid, but I considered Simon to have a plain and obvious smug agenda (or 'smugenda') , and I love this station and wanted thousands of potential listeners/contributors to hear about it for the first time such that they'd give it a try.

Hell, just contrasting how ectstatic-though-painful and infrequent the Marathon is with public radio's Slough of Despond fund-drives....
