I had a cellmate who claimed to have played in Roland Kirk's band. He was dropped on his head from a second floor. So I don't know it was true.

Interestingly enough the Wiki etymology thing says dax (in daxophone) 'is derived from the German word Dachs, meaning "badger" an referencing the many animal sounds the daxophone is capable of generating' . So yes it did sound like an animal. A baby animal.

P-90, I've determined that personal identification rigmarole in the USA rests wholly on the banking system in almost every case. Everything rests on birth certificates, but getting a new birth certificate depends either on one's making a personal appearance or ordering remotely. Either way requires presentation of certain info that anyone could ferret out who wanted to; however, payment for it is the choke point, requiring a bank to have info on file on you that matches the ordering info.

@Robert: all I did was change the email the bank uses to routinely contact me from one url I've had for years to another one I've had for years. The procedure on the website was simple, but it just didn't work, I had to speak to two different representatives to get it done. Is there any big US bank whose customer service does not simply SUCK?
  10:44am Fredricksbrooke:

Holy crap. I have that Lena album. The whole thing is creepy. That set woulda done well with the Zip Code Rapists cover of Wake Me Up Before You GoGo.
Avatar 10:48am Wild Neil:

@P90: My bank in Western NY was HSBC, then First Niagara and now is Key Bank. I got so sick of it I joined a credit union that has been around 57 years...and got a car loan with them for about 4% (compared to the bank the car dealer got for 9.99%!)...Credit Unions can do about 90% of what banks do and are MUCH cooler to deal with...there is a reason people like them and those that use them advocate for them....

I think Clay would be hilarious although his taste in music is kinda....70's oriented in a slightly bad way from my limited exposure.......but his patter is hilarious! If you had Clay do the talking and somebody else co-hosting and doing the music that would be amazing, like Joe Belock! Or Jonesy! Or .....IRWIN!!!! IRWIN would be fuckin amazing!!!!!!

That Ding song flew by! 18 minutes? It felt like only about 11 and a half!
  11:06am Listener Robert:

I have a friend in Brooklyn, Fred Cookinham, who has a great voice and has worked both professionally and amateurly as a tour guide, and provided the voice for talking books etc. for the blind. I'd love to hear him doing a morning show regularly for $, and I bet he could fit it in with his regular job the same way he's done with other things. Should I ask him?
Avatar 11:07am Wild Neil:

"Cat Dildos"....heard that one near years eve on TV.
  11:07am P-9O:

I've always had the feeling that the drive-time slot would turn out to be multiple hosts on different days, rather than one DJ slogging through 15 hours of programs and trying to keep it fresh. And stay sane. I also thought the best solution might be teams of DJs working in pairs, mit der banter und der chemistry etc. But I suppose its hard enough to get even one person reliably in there at 6 am, all revved up and raring to go... Honsetly, just as a model, what Fabio and Clay do together is a pretty damn good template for a morning show. Of course, they do it for like 10 minutes, once a week. At a non-unGodly hour.

No Robert, the deadline has passed for applications.

How is going to be decided who will get the 6am to 9am WMFU air slot? By rating? By number of people calling-in? By number of starred songs?

Could they install a bed at WFMU like a fire station so somebody could roll out of bed and do the morning show?
@Ken from Hyde Park-I think it works out to more like 50mph with breaks,,,I have data! I drove from NJ to NM several times and over several days it devolves to 50mph average during the hours you are driving....65mp is a pipedream, you would have to go 80mph sometimes to realize....
