Please let us know in advance, when you can, when you're substituting for other DJs. Be well, Ken, and I wish that you do in fact return next year—so much can happen in nine months.

Requests: "Bangin' in the Nails", that mash-up with the rinky-tink piano and Slim Shady, "O Superman"…because they were American planes, made in America.

Dont worry Murakami, I am definitely coming back in nine months. My last show in this slot will be September 12 and I'll be filling in for Joe McGasko on Monday October 1.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 6:16am (Murakami Whywolf))):

Happy Birthday to me then, that very day.

I remember how, just before I turned forty years of age, I told myself 'No big deal, nothing much will have changed that day next week.' That was 08 September 2001…
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 6:21am (((Murakami Whywolf):

Leave the hammer for the 'Break In case Bob Dylan dies' box hanging in some wall in the WFMU building.
