So the "murder hornet" is really over blown. They are freaky, but were really over played by New York Times reporter. I am an entomologist (study insects). So maybe one less concern?

Love your station! Great set :). I've been Shazamming like cray cray. Love from LA.

i think (seriously) that the last time I listened to this station was ....well, you weren't born yet (it was prob around 1979-81.)

I am NOT a "stuck in the past" music head (not by any measure.)

And I am not certain how I landed yet again on FMU, and I don't care. You have laid out the prefect (at least for today's head) soundtrack. I'm having a blast.

You are playing some of my favorite music. This is the perfect soundscape for a sunny early Sunday evening. Tiersen's score for Goodbye, Lenin! is as good if not better than the Amelie one. I also like your travel premium. often listening to it.

It’s swigging cream soda out of an Olde English bottle for me, Jake. After all, we WFMU DJs have a reputation in the community to uphold, if that’s the right word.
