clitorectomy has me interested. i would like to hear it.

Oh, man. It wasn't archived? That show was a thing of beauty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04am SeanG:

Definitely archive that show. It was radio anal magic.
  8:18am Jack:

Never mind the archive, bring back Kenny G. That show was wonderful; reminded me of how much fun WFMU used to be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26am Ken:

Can't 'bring back' something I never took away, Jack. Kenny took himself off the schedule and he's too busy to commit to a weekly show these days. I will put that archive back up later this week. I needed a clitorectomy cooling-off period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32am Asheville Jon:

No sorry Jon... Krampus has jumped the shark once and for all. Any requests for backwards prog rock or anything else?

Morning, Ken, people!

By pure coincidence last Wednesday I contracted an ear infection that, unfortunately, prevented me to listen to Kenny G's show. But then the problem went away as soon as the show ended. What a bummer.

If there's a Wal-Mart in Ferguson, I would guess that is it, Fofo. I'm sure the Walton family has their own private military to protect their assets in the case of riots. That's the jokey part. The true part is that after 9/11, the Waltons had a gigantic fallout-proof bunker built for themselves. They're approaching Howard Hughes levels of paranoid.

Hi Mugsy! Thanks for checking in. Marcel, they actually get larger checks than those issued by ASCAP, BMI or Sesac, or so I am told by artists who have received RIAA/Soundexchange checks.

Avatar 9:32am pocket vito:

I really loved Kenny G's show but missed the beginning. I don't see what the fuss is about, there's always borderline offensive stuff on this station, that's kind of the point of being free and independent. I've been offended too, but I keep coming back. Kenny G is an over-the-top character who wants to mess with his audience, which is why it's so hilarious, so why take his rants seriously? Like it matters in the real world what Kenny G has to say about anything.
Avatar 9:32am sphere:

hi there. also, Khlam is still awesome!

Still need the record label for this Khlam record.. plus the lAbel for the next song I'm about to play.. blasted MP3s and their lack of tags...

@pocket vito: follow kenny on Facebook. There are many for whom what Kenny says matters. But Ken, Kenny is a mischievous boy who should not be left at home without supervision. Or at least make sure that the guns, matches and alcohol are locked up.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:38am Andrew Waterloo:

I would have enjoyed the Kenny G set if my mood wasn't so sour last week. Still had some fun listening to it. He certainly doesn't play his character as hard as Colbert does.

I am sorry that I missed Kenny G last week.

Ken, can you get Kenny G. to put up the show on archive? I am a big fan.

Too bad that Krampus has hit the mainstream. Those shows were your Christmas gift to us. Maybe a Saturnalia themed show instead, Ken.

you could make it "freemium" and have the money you spend on powerups go to the station.

Dan B From Upstate,

I think building family bunkers is something that comes with the territory of being a multi-billionaire. I mean, the chances of a working class revolution happening soon is quite high, at least higher than a Russian nuclear attack or a comet landing on our planet.
Avatar 9:59am Cecile:

I would start with the great indie game designer Zach Gage. He is in Brooklyn, is proudly indie even though he designed the super popular Drop 7 and Ridiculous Fishing, and helps other developers out. He is thanked all over indie game credits.

I also thought the army outside Wal*mart was there to prevent civil unrest during the BLack Friday.

WFMU game: Start with a base of sim listeners and build a playlist of hippy noise that alienates as many as possible. High score if no sim is listening at the end.

Also, maybe have a jenga style game with piles of records.

Or you could have multiple "mini games"

I'd like an FMU pinball machine, that would be sweet.
Avatar 10:05am Dan B From Upstate:

Game idea: Board Op Simulator. It'll go great on Steam (online game store) with other such greats as Farming Simulator, Train Simulator, Grass Simulator, Goat Simulator, and Tabletop Simulator (Every single one of those is a real video game).

WFMU game: To clear a level, you have to have all your sims turn off their radio. Level 1 is super easy, because it is all Soccer Moms and old people. But trying to get the weird burned-out shut-in dude to turn off his radio on level 8 is a real challenge.

And I made the schedule decisions into a Tetris game. People! read my posts!

So far I like the taco thing.

you're on the right track Dan B. Object of game is to build a giant robot powerful enough to destroy all other radio stations. But you have to keep upgrading, adding weapons, etc. which you can buy.

Hey, speaking of pretzels (I won't get to say that again today), I like the clunky lighted pretzel that goes atop the big public Xmas tree in Reading, PA. That's also where this year's tree was so scraggle-ass ugly that complaints and wider attention almost got it yanked, but the hubbub has turned and now they're gonna celebrate it as a Charlie Brown tree.

WFMU game: At the record fair, you have to get from one end to the other as quickly as possible. Every time you make eye contact with a lonely hippy, it costs time. If you stare down, you may bump into a lonely hippy, which costs even more time.

I've been trying to come up with a suitable WFMU 1st person shooter style game for a long time. The schedule would be rendered as a 3d-dystopia, with each area triggering streams out of the archives. Lots of picture-of-the-day style graphics and Terry Gilliam-like cutout sprite animation.
Meanwhile, you'll have to make due with the Andymatic Zingatron.

  10:38am Robert:

A WFMU simulation game should primarily be about staying on the air, technically, financially, & legally. I don't know that there's a suitable way to simulate those. Any of those factors could be analogized to target shooting, object dodging, etc., but it wouldn't carry the flavor.

Avatar 10:39am Dan B From Upstate:

If it's a WFMU game, maybe it should be about planning and executing a successful fundraising marathon. The problem is integrating the freemium into that idea. Maybe you convince your players to pay for rewards to enable faster fund-raising? Kind of like paying to immediately build buildings in simpsons tapped out...
