Wait, who gave Bronwny C. mono? XD
Avatar 6:08pm JakeGould:

Ike, someone named Jack. Mono Jack.

It's belichick! He's the mastermind. Patriots cheat we all know it

CORRECTION: I am listening, but I am barely thinking.
  6:12pm Mildred:

I think manhattan is going to be closed tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Ike:

Wait, I don't know much about sports. So somebody named Belichick gave Bronwyn mono? OK then.
  6:13pm joel a:

mlb mud comes from delaware river, no kidding!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Fuzzy:

And the Pats played better in the second half after the balls were "discovered." It's really Sour-Grapegate.
  6:13pm Jen:

It's called Baseball Rubbing Mud. And it's harvested near the Delaware River, on the Jersey side.
Avatar 6:15pm Danne D:

I hope all you sportsylisteners are staying safe :/
  6:15pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

I guess we need a secret tape of bill belichick blatantly telling the team hitting cheat before the commissioner takes action and bans the patriots from playing football for 5 years and fire belichick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Kali G:

WIKI backs up Jen that Baseball Mud does comes from New Jersey, much like the best radio on the planet!

The mud originates from the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The mud is cleaned and screened before sale. Each year the owner, Jim Bintliff, visits the mud's source and returns with 1,000 pounds of it to store over the winter and sells it the following baseball season. Before all major- and minor-league baseball games, an umpire rubs six dozen or more balls with the Baseball Rubbing Mud to give them a rougher surface, making them easier for pitchers to grip (MLB Rule 3.01c). The rubbing mud's unique feature is that it is "very fine, like thick chocolate pudding", and it has been considered the "perfect baseball-rubbing mud".[1]

I wonder if they've got Hernandez out there helping shovel.

@Danne D: Nah, he's blowing the snow away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The people here are going mad with power. Dutchess County executives have declared a state of emergency. The roads are closed and travel is prohibited. If you want to go out for beer, bread or breakfast, too bad.
Avatar 6:17pm Danne D:

@SBB I think it's just an excuse to get Hernandez after that rouge ball boy
  6:17pm bobby:

Great show but mic levels unbalanced / bring up female mic or lower male mic for better listening
Avatar 6:18pm Danne D:

@Bobby - Jim is a relative board rookie if I'm not mistaken so it might be a rough ride.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Carmichael:

The NFL caught the ball boy, now they're gonna try and roll him to get the big fish.
  6:19pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

Can we lay off with snow mageddon I'm trying to forget 30 inches outside
Avatar 6:19pm Danne D:

(and for those on here that are also Dave Hill fans - yeah I'm totally chickening out of the temporary call-screening gig tonight)
  6:20pm V Priceless:

That's a NYS travel ban, BTW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Ike:

My vote is for MORE snow talk because I don't understand sports.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Carmichael:

Just pretend it's not there, Phillip. Cmon, let's go play Frisbee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Ike:

Having lived in NJ previously, I can say the PATH's Sunday schedule sucks giant moldy donkey bits, and is WORSE THAN THE G TRAIN. WORSE. BAD. EVIL. CRAP. The Port Authority blows goats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In college, we played snow football in a vacant lot on weekends. Fun times.
Avatar 6:23pm glenn:

y'all have snow tires, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Skirkie:

We all live in tiny apartments. We have no place to sore extra sets of tires.
  6:25pm Mildred:

I braved port authority, I'm grateful i got out alive
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm steve:

levels are fine for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Kali G:

Who needs CNN to tell us about what is happening in Snowmegeddon NYC,... when we have FMU live updates from the studio with its nomadic abominable DJ's!
Avatar 6:26pm glenn:

huh. garages will store them for a fee. or there are storage units.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm steve:

Ike i live off the G and have no idea why it gets such a bad rap, i hardly ever have a problem with it
Avatar 6:27pm Danne D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Ken From Hyde Park:

NBA games for the Nets & Knicks tonight are postponed, if no one has guessed that yet.
  6:29pm Mildred:

I don't even like sports and this show is 1000 times better than Dr. Gameshow.
Avatar 6:30pm glenn:

even night people is better than dr. gameshow. which sucks because i hate night people and really wanted to like dr. gameshow.
  6:30pm Mildred:

Yeah its just unlistenable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Ike:

I think Dr. Gameshow has gotten better. I didn't the pilot episode but shows like that need time to gel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Skirkie:

"Deflate Belichick" Jim says.
Avatar 6:32pm Danne D:

I agree with Ike - Every show needs a little bit of a run to get going :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Skirkie:

Dr. Gameshow is fantastic.
Avatar 6:32pm Danne D:

SPORTSYTALK HISTORY!!!!! YOU GUYS HAVE MADE IT!!!!! You actually have gotten a prank caller :)
  6:32pm Mildred:

If fantastic you mean horrible i agree.
Avatar 6:32pm Danne D:

I also agree with Skirkie - I enjoy Dr. Gameshow :)
Avatar 6:33pm Danne D:

Ike is 100% right about the PATH - the Sunday schedule should be renamed the "You're Gonna Be Late" Schedule
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Skirkie:

It actually faster to take the World Trade train and get on the subway. (contingent on the subway running, of course)
Avatar 6:35pm Danne D:

That's my Dastardly/Muttley comparison with the Patriots - they can win honestly but would prefer to win via cheating :)
  6:35pm Robert:

I too find both "Night People" and "Dr. Game Show" boring. The people on DGS are too nice, too compliant. It might be interesting if they had a villain, someone you could love to hate.
  6:36pm V Priceless:

Ernie Banks RIP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Kali G:

All the esoteric inside information concerning sports is located here at Sportsy Talk, —a huh, yep, the inner sanctum of the why, when and where not available on ESPN or the sports pages that leave a grey inky residue on one's coffee tinged fingers.

Hmmmmm... www.boston.com...
  6:36pm Marc:

Bill Buckner never went to the Yankees
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm chris:

I think its great that Dr. Gameshow is on the air. I also think its great that other shows I don't like so much are on the air. Vive la FMU!
Avatar 6:37pm Danne D:

Breaking (Real) News - PATH service is gonna be suspended at 11pm!

It looks like Dave Hill's show is gonna be a rerun or we'll have hour 4 through 6 of the Jim the Poet show.
Avatar 6:37pm Danne D:

chris gets it.
  6:38pm Robert:

That's true, chris. What's amazing is the amount of stuff I DO like on WFMU. To have so few utter clunkers is astounding. It's because they love it.
  6:39pm Mildred:

too bad dr. gameshow didn't get canceled due to the weather
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Kali G:

A 24 hour Jim the Poet Show may indeed be the type of marathon American minds are in need of in this point of history of mankind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm steve:

Jim should stay on the air all night! maybe Jim and Jo together, that'd be good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Kali G:

I miss Ernie Banks already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Ike:

Jo could be super great if she finds the right person to bounce off of. For a long time I didn't like Hearty White, but when I heard him paired up with... um I think Chris M. maybe (?) for a marathon, that was amazing.
Avatar 6:44pm Danne D:

Dave is NOT coming in.
Avatar 6:44pm Marcel M:

Can we call in to talk to you whilst you drink beer?
Avatar 6:44pm glenn:

hearty took a while to grow on me, or maybe it was that the penny dropped and i got it.
  6:44pm Linda McL:

Chris is right WFMU has it all as it should be. When Night People or something we don't like is on we go to the other streams and they are awesome too. There is always something good at WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Kali G:

JIm,.. you can call your upcoming 24 Hour show, "Poetry in Snowtion!" Badda Boom! Wow, Polish Beer, Hmmmmm!
Avatar 6:45pm dale:

'klassic episodes?' - ugh! just let jim the poet have the next two hours!
Avatar 6:45pm Marcel M:

I agree Dale!
Avatar 6:45pm Danne D:

@Jim - that is per his twitter - I forwarded you the tweet he sent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Was there money in the last WFMU budget to procure some radio robots to broadcast without the need for humans? That'd be useful for emergencies like this.
Avatar 6:46pm Danne D:

@Jim Jesse Jarnow already announced on twitter that he is NOT coming in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm steve:

Ken - Flaming Robot of Love? think they got it running for a bit during Sandy. wfmu.org...
  6:48pm Robert:

Ike, it took me a long time to warm up to Hearty White too. When he was 1st on, I "got" it, but didn't LIKE it. But I went back to it & after a while, I did.
Avatar 6:48pm drewo:

All night hot stove league action ahead with Jim! I will be tuned in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm efd:

Per the WFMU homepage Matt Warwick is filling in for Jesse, and I think he's already in the building.
  6:48pm Jen:

Red Bulls lost in the semi-finals to New England.

Los Angeles beat New England in the final

Jim the Poet is like the Tom Brady of WFMU - he's the 6th round pick that's turning into the MVP!

Teach me to work the boards, I'll do it.

@Skirkie for the win :) SkirkieTalk :)

Just put "Frampton Comes Alive" on repeat and hightail it out of there.

"The Dead Air Show"

Maybe we could have Jim the Poet do "bonus commentary" during these taped episodes ;)

Happy Birthday dear Bronwyn!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm steve:

haha i love that idea Danne
  6:51pm Marc:

How about Clay Pigeon? He did Hurricane Irene for 36 hrs.
  6:51pm Robert:

Skirkie, I remember when WFMU not only didn't have alternate (or any) streams, but had honest-to-goodness SCHEDULED dead air. "Lowest Common Denominator" had various names for it.
  6:51pm Marc:

Happy Birthday Bronwyn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Carmichael:

Broadcast from Ken's place like during Hurricane Sandy.
  6:53pm Steve-O:

Loving this show, guys!

(P.S., happy birthday, Bronwyn C.!)
  6:53pm Robert:

My 1st birthday (Mar. 19, 1955) all the relatives were snowed in at my house for 3 days. Got 16 mm movies of it.

Like a Rogue ball boy Jim the Poet is taking over WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm steve:

lets all email station manager ken right now and tell him to keep Jim on the air

I think the Iron Money delivers growlers.

"Night People is great"? Better check your Carbon Monoxide monitor.

Jim, play the long version of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" at 111PM, even the Polish and Latin version!

Happy birthday, Bronwyn C. 29 forever!

Happy Birthday Bronwyn :)

I love Danne D's Mystery Radio 3000 idea!
Avatar 6:57pm Danne D:

The day that WFMU has 24/7 of shows I would want to listen to is the day that they need to shake up the schedule.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Studio B Ben:

If I lived in the NYC area, I'd brave the elements with a barrel of booze around my neck like a St. Bernard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Kali G:

Once I'm snowed in, I'm gonna sit back and read all the email responses that I have received from writing to Bronwyn!!!
  6:57pm Robert:

You could shoot for Glen Jones' record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Skirkie:

You should not have deleted that. He'd have laughed.
Avatar 6:59pm Danne D:

Thanks Jim and Bronwyn and everyone :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm chris:

Good luck, Jim! Thanks!
Avatar 7:00pm Marcel M:

Thanks Jim! Have fun!!
  7:01pm LInda Mcl:

Good show Jim. Good to be out of work early to hear you at home instead of in the car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Get home safely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Gah....I just thought of something: The Patriots should be penalized by playing their games next year with overinflated balls.
Avatar 7:17pm northguineahills:

...or have dj's that regularly remotely broadcast such as most of the GTDS stream, or Vicki, or Billy Jam..
Avatar 7:19pm dale:

if kenny g. reading the traffic report is good enough for obama, jim is good enough for the snownadoshark event
