  Wed. 5/24/17 9:07am foreign_listener_k:

So, hopefully with enough consideration, and with full understanding why you did not want another full time gig, none of the choices seemed suited for a 5 day a week show (which matters not a whit, of course).

Perhaps WFMU should stick to its strengths, which is variety? Only an idea, and one that could come about on its own anyways. Just try to avoid the old WPFW trick of having a schedule which says nothing about who is on the air at any given time - though the occasional surprise is always good, of course.

Fore the Spanish learners,

There are no transcription for the Mexican version of the Verb song on the interwebz. So here's my contribution to you!


Porque es una sinfonia agridulce esta vida
Tratar de conocer el final
Eres un esclavo del varo y luego te piras

Te llevare por el unico camino en el que no has andado
Conoces al lugar donde te lleva y donde las venas se encuentran
Yeah, yeah

No no cambies, no puedes cambiar, no puedo cambiar
No no camibes, no puedes cambiar, yo puedo cambiar

Porque aqui estoy en mi mole, mi mero mole
de un dia para otro no puedo cambiar mi mole
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no puedo , no puedo
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no puedo , no puedo

no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no puedo , no puedo

Porque es una sinfonia agridulce esta vida
Porque es una sinfonia agridulce esta vida

Te llevare por un camio en el que nunca, nunca has andado
Te llevare por el unico camio en el que no has andado

No no cambies, no puedes cambiar, no puedo cambiar

I know you view any sort of negativity here as trolling, but I found the Clay shows to be really irritating. In Europe, I listen during my lunch to the morning show and I felt his music acumen to be inferior to the other morning hosts, his on the street interviews to be patronizing, and his proclivity to talk over the music to be sacrilegious. I'll now have to forego WFMU during my afternoons. Heaven knows I'm miserable now. OK,m you can holler at me now for being negative. Be my guest.

"Any Kind of Pain" by Frank Zappa

You are the girl
Somebody invented
In a grim little office
On madison ave.

They were specific
They made you terrific:
Red lips;
Blue eyes;
Blonde hair;
Un-wise --
You're all-american,
And, darling, they said so

You'd take any kind of pain from me,
Wouldn't you, baby?
You'd take any kind of pain from me,
Wouldn't you, baby?
Since you haven't got a brain,
Let me just explain:
Any kind of pain
Is never a maybe

Her head's full of bubbles;
Her nose is petite!
She looks like she never
Gets nothin' to eat!

She dines with actors,
'n wall street characters:
Dull talk;
Nice clothes --
See her?
She blows --
She's so important
'cause he gets to do talk shows --

And she'd take any kind of pain from me,
Wouldn't you, bobby?
She'd take any kind of pain from me,
Wouldn't you, bobby?
Since you haven't got a name,
Let me just explain:
Any kind of pain
Is probably her hobby

She has moves up now;
She's come a long way --
They give her bunches
Of words she can say!

When she's in a bold mood,
'confinement loaf' sounds good --
That's right,
She's wrong!
Let's end
Her song

(it seems she's everywhere
We just can't escape her --
Is this a miracle of pure evolution?
And all the yuppie boys, they dream they will rape her --
She brings the 80's
To a thrilling conclusion!)

Yes, she's every bit as tame as me,
Isn't she tender?
Yes, she's every bit as lame as me,
Let us remember,
She gets only half the blame
Only half the blame
Only half the blame
Unless we extend her --

Too the extent that the singing/lyrics have any redeeming values in the least (I have a certain affection for maybe 15 seconds of the song, before the 80s production really kicks in), the literal video destroys them in glorious fashion.

To his credit, R.A.H. probably would have had a character call Ms Clinton 'The Wicked Witch' but somewhat respected her, but his loathing for our national case of the D.T.s would have been unalloyed. Nothing bugged him as much as proud ignorance, and even after his right-wing conversion I think he understood that many businessmen are formally legalised criminals.

Since this is in german, any swears would be tots OK by the FCC, right?

Busy day for a station manager: Announce new morning show host, host his own show, kick off subsequent show, prepare lunch for the crew, pay several overdue bills, sweep the back steps (or other designated weekly duty), host Skeptech event, pay more bills, answer various emails, call it a day.

Of course not, of course not, - it was just a Schnitzelalarm

I just realised, you didn't catch the f-bomb in the Lassies song, Ken, did you? "Die Landschaft hier ist fucking brill" - or is it OK because it's foreign?

@Sebastian - Ich Nicht sprechen kEINE ficken deutsch immer wieder. Bitte? Sie haben eine grosse schnozz.
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:25pm foreign_listener_k:

Man, nice way to give the game away there, Sebastian.

The FCC is just as capable as the Stasi ever was when it comes to sniffing out those not following the rules.

love this. i used to live in north philly so i know what they're talking about (different time period obviously). also, FUCK THE MAINLINE
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:27pm foreign_listener_k:

However, I completely support Ken's interpreting the German as 'ficken', and not something anyone in DC need worry about.

Okasa,

I don't know BUT if FCC stands for 'Fahrad Charterfluggesellschaft Codieren' Ken's is in big trouble.

oi, my question was genuine, it does have a different connotation in German, especially the way it's used in the song.
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:30pm Listener Robert:

I've long been afraid to react on these comments to oopsies like that, but does anyone else think such writings are a serious danger, or are we just joking about the possibility of their bringing down the wrath of the gov't?
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:31pm foreign_listener_k:

Well sure, if they were called the 'Counter Sluts,' which is the translation most likely to be considered accurate in this part of Germany (though possibly with a 'dirty' thrown in, but the dirty not having any sexual connotation like in the U.S.)

Listener Robert just recall poor Stephen Colbert.
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:33pm foreign_listener_k:

Listener Robert - Ken is in a much better position than I to answer that question, but the simple answer is that yes, the FCC pays attention when there are complaints, and the FCC has a godawful amount of power over what can and what cannot be legally broadcast.
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:34pm FϡFϡ (:

Germany's version of WFMU, that is WVMÜ (pronounced vay-fow-em-eu) plays all the swearing songs without any restriction. That's how they roll over there !
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:35pm foreign_listener_k:

Well, Colbert was in a gray zone - in that case, you can more clearly see the intersection of politics and the FCC, which is a problem that WFMU is unlikely to face. Apologizing was definitely the smart move.

No 7 sec delay, but we get this extra Ken. I guess I can deal.

Still trying to figure out how Colbert could have been in trouble with the FCC, if CBS both bleeped him *AND* blurred his mouth,so you couldn't read lips.
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:36pm Listener Robert:

But I mean, do people search the Internet for writings like these on which to base complaints, falsely saying that they were listening at the time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 12:42pm -Ken:

Bye Everybody!
  Wed. 5/24/17 12:43pm foreign_listener_k:

Listener Robert, the simple answer is kind of - there are more guardians of public morality in the U.S. than there ever will be guardians of the galaxy.

However, I sincerely doubt they care about WFMU.
