Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

  5:19am wfmu listener phillip:

What Happened? Wfmu sounds like it's off the air here in the bronx
  5:22am Morphe’:

Nice sounds.... thanks for sponning....
Avatar 5:24am Heidee:

Hi mariano, hi morphe' - how are you doing guys?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24am Darren:

Phillip, 91.1 FM is down right now because of electrical problems. Is that where you usually listen? Maybe you could try 91.9 FM. 91.1 FM will be up soon, we're working on it!
  5:26am wfmu listener phillip:

sorry @Darren I just woke up to hear Carol Crows show and my old analogue radio has nothing but static.
  5:27am morphe':

Hi Heidee!!!! Not often that one gets to say such a gleeful greeting!!!!
Spellcheck problem - Darren and I have never spooned....
should have been :
"Nice sounds.... thanks for SPINNING!!!!!"
  5:28am wfmu listener phillip:

well at least the internet stream is still up. I'd though that would have gone too.
  5:30am kpx:

woke up about 25 minutes ago after falling asleep sitting up all night in my armchair. went outside for short walk down the hill and saw to my right in the Eastern sky super bright star. would anyone happen to know which star or planet that might be?. also a very good early morning to everyone.
  5:30am wfmu listener phillip:

Wow! hurricane laura. we got near noth9ng here in New York. sorry to hear about new jersey.:(
  5:30am morphe':

FMU L..Phillip: the transmitter is far from the physical station... different power sources..
Darren: Does Montgomery have a back up = in house generator????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am herb.nyc:

Agreed- static coming in very clearly. Glug.
  5:37am morphe':

KPX: Venus: look above the eastern horizon and you'll see super-bright Venus without any problems as the second rock from the Sun shines at magnitude -4.3 as the “Morning Star.” Mercury: an hour before sunrise the closest planet to the Sun will be about 10° above the eastern horizon.
  5:37am wfmu listener phillip:

Next Fundraising marathon @ken should buy a backup generator for the transmitter.
  5:37am wfmu listener phillip:

where is the original WFMU transmitter. I want to see it on google earth:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38am BVP:

always nice to hear deaper cuts of Lou.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:38am diciassette:

Lou Reed was a miracle

(this hurts)
  5:38am wfmu listener phillip:

i knew that was venus i was looking at each night when a went out after 10.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am chaos_in_la_la:

I remember the first time I heard street hassle. she played it for me, and we had our first kiss while it was outroing..

hearing it now at 238 in the morning it coulda been the same nite of the summer, 19 years ago..
Avatar 5:39am Heidee:

@morphe', you're very welcome and deserve to be gleefully greeted.
Avatar 5:39am Heidee:

Love Lou!
  5:41am wfmu listener phillip:

MARS has been in a certain part of the sky lately. I noticed the red ting to it.
  5:41am morphe':

Phillip - not sure but 91.1 is somewhere in the hills between East Orange and Montclair?? And, someone with info can correct me - I think there is a 2nd in Bklyn or a Booster??? I may be wrong about that but heard it through the grapevine..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41am Darren:

This Lou is from the original vinyl, sounds pretty good for a lean mean 42 years old
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am BVP:

sounds like nice memory @chaosinlala
  5:45am morphe':

Heidee - before retirement, at work each day people would say "Good Morning
Morphe' " - but since it was work it sounded more like "MOURNING"
  5:46am wfmu listener phillip:

I know that @ken put a repeater antenna in manhattan.
  5:48am wfmu listener phillip:

HEY:( someone is filling in for THERESE again:( I look forward to her show every week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48am fred:

I don't think I had heard Street Hassle in full before, but I think Kenzo used a loop of it
Avatar 5:48am Heidee:

morphe', hee, yes - but great prospects though, hopefully you will be able to get involved in some nice projects?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49am chaos_in_la_la:

@BVP it is bittersweet, more sweet than bitter.
@Darren, vinyl sounds good.
@Portland, love your way
  5:51am kpx:

thank you morphe, magnitude -4.3, sounds like you're a amateur astrologist. if so maybe you could tell me where I could see the constellation Virgo that's if it can be seen at all?. I should also say that I don't know what it looks like. but I can recognize the usual ones like Cassiopeia and Orion. and I even saw the Little Dipper which is usually hard to see because of the ambient light.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51am chaos_in_la_la:

I've tripled the volume on my stereo
  5:53am morphe':

Heidee - living in Madrid for now... during this crisis, tried to volunteer to deliver food on my bike to the homebound eldely through a Catholic organization called Caritas =caring??? They rejected me because they questioned me about my religious beliefs and I told them I was an ex-catholic. They said that they only accepted believers??????????
  5:53am Choggie:
