69 love songs was a gift from an ex before we "hitched up". I guess it was easier to let Stephen Merrit compile a mix tape for me than to make one herself, thats quaint now I guess. It was burned on a cdr no less. I still love it just the same, Im not a bitter person ;)

@melinda - Same here, but i was delivering flowers in a college town with multiple college stations. They were played constantly.

Actually, The Sixth's "Wasp's Nest" was my introduction to Stephen Merritt in HS.

Wowsers, that's awesome!
Avatar 10:53pm Andrew S:

I didnt even know Magnetic Fields until I got that cdr but I've loved them since. I think "luckiest guy" was the song that first hooked me, so poignant and his vocals at the end still give me goosebumps

I asked this on Shut Up Weirdo, but we've got a different crowd on the comments board here, so....

What was your "gateway" show to WFMU? What was the first show that made you a fan? For me, it was Fool's Paradise. I was driving through Elizabeth NJ, and was scanning the FM dial when I heard this amazing jazzy R&B piece. I had to hear more, so I stopped scanning and listened....

Avatar 11:21pm northguineahills:

I read about WFMU in '98, in The Wire, when I was still an undergrad. My first jobby job had enough bandwidth to stream wfmu, so, when I was at the last person at the office, I tapped into the tinny stream of Donna's Gateway to Joy, and I've been hooked ever since. I've been lucky to play at WFMU a few times.

Dope story, spidermank!
