Too difficult to pick, but one of my favorite moments was on this session of Velcro Radio (DJ: Michael Goodstein):
http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/2022

A CD started skipping badly, and he puts on an unpreviewed substitute track, which turns out to be this hilariously tasteless song that goes something like, "Come...take a sip...from me! It tastes just like a milkshake!". After the damage had been done, he pulls the track, obviously shaken, and apologizes profusely. Killer show, too - he played Yoko Ono's "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mommy's Only Looking for Her Hand in the Snow)" fer crying out loud.

I'm loving this at the moment. The links are a bit spaced out and that, but they had a jazz version of Paranoid Android and now they've got the singer off Dntel's Anywhere Anyone in for session. This is great indeed.

Currently, Monica Lynch's show. College marching bands, disco, cheesy Europop, dancehall, indie, golden oldies, and so much more. Truly freeform radio.

I have to give props to Douglas' Rhubarb Cake archives. They're what drew me to WFMU in the first place. I was searching on something else via Google, came across the show's archives and then started exploring. Big ups to DJ Small Change, Donna Summer and Brian Turner, too.

I've never listened to WFMU (we have college radio in this city, too), but because of my Internet dealings with him, I'll give the nod to Mosurock. That "ILM's own" comment above aboot him is priceless.

Vic Funk, Tuesday, 11 February 2003 13:26 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

VELCRO LAD demonstrated some of his nascent WFMU talents in the pro studio of WESU as one-half of the tape manipulation duo mgnx (of which i was the other half). so he gets my hands-down vote for fave rave dj.

Crazy. Loft above Atticus, yes.

How did this happen? What happened to all the vinyl in the Clark basement?

I feared something like this when, in the years I was there, no one took the initiative to bring WESU's concerns to the attention of the administration in re. renovating Clark Hall and building a new campus center. I take part of the blame.

Amateurist (amateurist), Thursday, 13 February 2003 00:12 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

P.S. You can blame me (and Sara Erase Errata too) for separating the vinyl into genre categories so discrete as to be unintelligible to most DJs. ("Wait, does this belong in Folk, or Folk Revival, or Old Time, or Old Time Revival, or--")

Amateurist (amateurist), Thursday, 13 February 2003 00:13 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I don't know about the history questions. I just came to Wesleyan as a grad student and just got a show. I don't even really know anyone there. I'll ask around and send you an email if you want.

I was excited to learn Erase Errata is from Wesleyan. WESU is bringing them back in April, I think.

Fuck. I can't beleive WESU is above Atticus. Atticus, which came in and killed locally owned college bookstores in the 90s, along with B&N, can't be sending good vibes up there. May not be long before the station sells out to Clear Channel and switches to Top 40 I guess. Barf.

listening to FMU around 11am today, Pickle time Theater's Matty Gherkin plays Don Felder's "heavy Metal." I heard the same song on another show last week. Does any dedicated FMU phreak know if this is a recent meme for the station? seems improbable that two shows would play a forgotten FM chestnut coincidentally?

later Pseu Braun on her show was talking about a commenter on some FMU page or other: "Matthew Sweet's Yoga Farts." I have been laughing since then.

a shomin-geki poster with some horror elements (WilliamC), Friday, 24 August 2018 15:51 (seven months ago) Permalink

I think the answer is both, depending on the dj -- if the dj can pitch in on production (Scharpling had family in the t-shirt biz, for instance), they do -- but Station Manager Ken would probably give you a clear answer.
