  6:16pm benny: says the episode of SSD in which Andy made a kid cry was the 20th best podcast episode of all time. Will we see more kids crying in the new year?

Ken, are you sticking around for Andrea's show after this? She's had a couple of WFMU people on her show as guests.

Benny, what about when Andy made a baby vomit?

Vladimir Putin hails the "return home" of Crimea in his New Year speech. Whatever that implies.
Avatar 6:27pm dale:

can't you just trick andy into not keeping kosher? maybe slip him some pork rinds or cocoanut shrimp?
Avatar 6:28pm northguineahills:

I've eaten a ghost pepper at a chili-eating contest, i got through a half before I got tunnel vision and my ears started to ring. I got third place.
Avatar 6:28pm Marshall Stacks:

@dale I'm ready for the future! But what if it's permanently 9:45 in the future, like some crazy Zeno's Herring Paradox?

That would suck.

Avatar 6:29pm Snortley:

Same as before: the 91.1 transmitter is putting out a good strong signal, but there's no audio to it. Sound is on and off sporadically.

...are you my pal benny
who works for j&j
in west jersey?
if not
best regards for '15 anyhoo :)
Avatar 6:33pm dale:

i would hate for it to be permanently 9:45. it's that point of the night where you get tired but feel like you need to stay awake or else you've become an old fart. forever stuck in that malaise would suck.
  6:33pm deborah:

Can't get the internet stream to play either. I am doing nothing this year. Just reading Tolstoy, listening to music, and thinking about the New Year and how it will be so much better.
Avatar The Kenschlampen Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Asheville Jon:

they are not using a possum this year
Avatar The Kenschlampen Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Asheville Jon:

  6:33pm deborah:

Possum drop was canceled, I think.
  6:33pm Tim:

What is this music looping in the background?
  6:34pm andy the painter:

yes, i second robert (from the bronx?):
long live us people who are, and support, free-form!
for better or worse, wfmu is at the center of my cultural life, and i hope it's around for a long time.
happy new year to ken and everyone listening.
Avatar 6:34pm dale:

jon - do they just drop a possum out a window or is it going down slowly in a nice cage?

This is fun!
Avatar The Kenschlampen Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Asheville Jon:

i've not personally been to the possum drop, but my understanding is that they put it in a cylinder and lower it, then let it go
see the link i posted for more info

Ken, you totally need to get someone from the U.K. to call in so we can hear the future happen at the top of the show.
Avatar 6:48pm Bryant:

The end of the show. The top of the hour. You know what I mean.
Avatar 6:48pm fred:

There were call for a raccoon drop (no early release) but my understanding is that there were complaints. Yes, I'm making this up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Mutant:

I feel left out since I'm in the past
Avatar 6:50pm fred:

@Bryant: that's a great idea! Get Vicki on the phone

thanks for everything this year Ken. well, everything except that horrible bohemian crapsody show.

groucho,vicki, please call in at the top of the hour. we need to hear from the UK correspondents.

That reminds me that I didn't get any of my swag this year

@Asheville Jon: don't mention it! Saying that it was his most memorable show this year only encourages him to do it again

Avatar 6:55pm groucho:

I'm scared to call america. do you have skype?
Avatar 6:55pm northguineahills:

@Steve: Not even close. Wasabi is more horseradishy, while a ghost pepper has an insane load of capsaicin that puts habaneros to shame.
