Hello Ken

What year is this from?

Mon. 8/4/08 3:20pm From: Parq

I've obviously stepped into a time warp. Why the heck don't I feel 15 years younger?

Mon. 8/4/08 3:20pm From: kEN

All different years.

Mon. 8/4/08 3:20pm From: bruce longsteen estreet banned


Mon. 8/4/08 3:21pm From: colleen's coffee cup

Having fun so far. Looking forward to Wild Girl this weekend. Just saw the notice about the Wire concert! We who listen in other time zones want to know if this is going to be another live broadcast. Is it?

Mon. 8/4/08 3:26pm From: Marc in DC

"The Satanic aspect of music"


Mon. 8/4/08 3:27pm From: Harvey

The band Islands used a clip from this interview on their album "Return to the Sea"

Mon. 8/4/08 3:27pm From: Sean Daily


Mon. 8/4/08 3:29pm From: JJZ

I thought of Andy when I saw this today.

Mon. 8/4/08 3:33pm From: Sean Daily

And the sad thing is that "Tallow Cross" is a fairly rockin' name. It's wasted on a bunch of chuckleheads like that.

Hmmm... "Suet Crucifix"?

Mon. 8/4/08 3:36pm From: Who Killed JR?

Rev Ivan Stang's very first FMU visit, circa 1983!

Mon. 8/4/08 3:37pm From: another old man

Mon. 8/4/08 3:38pm From: Lipwak

Hi all,

DId FMU air Church of the Sub Genius shows back in the, what, 80s? I remember hearing them somewhere.

Mon. 8/4/08 3:38pm From: Jeff M

Remember the Satin Teens?

There were these famous (and of course goofy, however murderous) satanic teen killers out on Long Island back in the day.

But someone who lived out there then told me they couldn't actually spell very well -- apparently sometimes they'd spraypaint "Satin" on walls and overpasses and such.

Mon. 8/4/08 3:38pm From: MOR

I wish! Ken, any Watts layin around?

Mon. 8/4/08 3:39pm From: NO ESCAPE

Tell Me You're Sorry

Mon. 8/4/08 3:40pm From: alumni association

Mon. 8/4/08 5:38pm From: Randy in NC

Years ago there was a DJ named Bud if I recall on WFMU. He used to rant and rave, maybe tape was rolling?

Mon. 8/4/08 5:41pm From: Sean Daily

Irwin sounds VERY different on these recordings. How old are they?

Mon. 8/4/08 5:43pm From: Ken

This is all from the 1983 Marathon.

Mon. 8/4/08 5:43pm From: Ken

Randy - You're thinking of Bud Styple.

Mon. 8/4/08 5:48pm From: Sean Daily

Oooooooooops... heh... heh... RTFPL next time, Sean...

Mon. 8/4/08 5:53pm From: Randy in NC

I guess I'm old since I remember most all of these folks...
What was the 19983 marathon T shirt? I probably had one.

Mon. 8/4/08 5:55pm From: James T

I wish R Steve would come back and do a show for all us incontinent old age pensioners in the UK

Mon. 8/4/08 5:55pm From: Randy in NC

1983, or was this pre-T shirt?
