Thanks for the CD, and may I recommend The Cookout for pit beef next time you're in Baltimore, close to Duke's Motel on Pulaski Hwy. Great Pit Beef Egg & Cheese breakfast sandwich!
  2:10pm ?:

who's that sax player on the little esther cut?
  2:16pm Pobert Rlant:

I did get him to record an ID for WFMU, and afterwards he asked, “What’s the channel, you know – the frequency?” “91.1 FM.” I answered.

Then I got the shock of my life when he exclaimed, “THAT’S the station I’ve got on the hotel radio!”

He went on to tell a story about pledging to KBOO, a listener-supported radio station in Portland.

He was driving around and heard the DJ say, during a fund drive, “If we get one thousand dollars in the next hour we promise we’ll never play ‘Stairway To Heaven’ again!”“I pulled over to the side of the road, called them up and pledged it myself. I never want to hear that fucking song again either!” 
  2:20pm P-90:

Paul Frees! has he had a Memorial Playlist Page?

On June 20, 2002, the Librarian of Congress issued its long awaitedDetermination on Rates and Terms for Webcasting and Ephemeral Recordings. The Determination follows a rejection of the rate structure proposed by the Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel ("CARP").

  2:51pm Ĩkє:

Don't have the money now? That's OK, you can pledge now & pay later! They'll bill you via e-mail (or USPS, if you insist). Pledge by phone at 800-989-9368. Or on the web pledge form, choose "one-time" and then "bill me later." DON'T WAIT UNTIL WEEK 2! THAT'S WHEN EVERYBODY ELSE PLEDGES! DO IT NOW & YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING A PRIZE ARE BETTER!
  3:01pm Mandy:

@Ike, can I adjust my perks/pledge info when I get contacted by WFMU after the marathon?
