RadioFudge Marathon!

If you tuned into Fudge's WYUR radio show last week, you heard me sing my High School Alma Mater and a guest appearance by Cro Magnon Man. Who will be on tonight's show? Maybe one of you! Listen online at WYUR.org from 7-9pm tonight (Eastern Time). Call in to 212-923-2471 for a chance of prizes!

Of course. Since I'll actually be in the city at that time tonight, and won't be able to actually do anything, this would be perfect, right? But no... no. I won't be anywhere near a computer, and probably won't even be able to use my cellphone. I'll likely have to sit there doing absolutely nothing. Argh.

Ezzie said...

(Anyone want to bring me a laptop with a wireless connection? It would be much appreciated...)

Any chance her shows are being recorded and posted on the internet? They weren't at the beginning, but they should be.

PsychoToddler said...

Apparently they are recorded as mp3s, but they would need to be hosted somewhere. If anyone knows how to do that for free (50mb files) let me know.

Doctor Bean said...

Listening now. Fudge is telling your PT "what am I?" story.

PsychoToddler said...

OK, I think I heard Shira and Anne on the show tonight.

Unfortunately Anne got talked over.

If I'm wrong, let me know.

It was pretty cool to hear the physics majors getting into deep discussions about philosophy and English Lit.

Did I say pretty cool? I meant pretty nerdy.

Dagnabit! I guess two weeks in a row would be too much to hope for...

Shira Salamone said...

Yep, that was me, defending my home state of New Jersey. (I think that's the first time I've actually been able to listen to "streaming" radio on my office computer without getting cut off every 30 seconds.) I needed an excuse to be late to the shul board meeting, and figured that calling in to Fudge's show would be lot more fun. :)

*Everybody* gets talked over on that show, including Fudge. It's a wonder she ever gets a word in edgewise.

Hey, Steg, we gotta get together one of these days--I still owe you a cassette of Fudge's interview of a certain kabbalistic rock musician of her acquaintance. :)

Shira Salamone said...

Speaking of physic majors discussing English Lit., did I happen to mention that our son the physics major writes for the college magazine?

to everyone who listened, i would like to issue an enthusiastic thank-you. especially those of you who called in (: you really livened up the show. likewise i'd like to apologize for the talking-over. that's one of the things i love about my show and hate at the same time: you literally never know who is going to randomly pull up to a mike. when there's more people there i find the conversation usually gets more interesting, so i try and let them talk, but especially when you've got more than four guys in the same room, it's hard to get them to grant each other that courtesy. did you like the physics majors discussing literature? i don't know if anyone heard, but at the end we got a sy syms major to call in and defend the business school. that was a very cool part of the night for me.
likewise, the radio marathon saw my initiation into several station rituals, including the Going On The Roof, Yelling 'Fore!' And Throwing An Ancient Motherboard Overboard tradition, the Going Into The Art Room And Putting A Post-It Note Mustache On The Caeser Mannequin, and last but surely not least, falling for the old Staircase Switcheroo That Lets You Out in the Middle of the Theater During YCDS Practice, Causing Unseen People to Scream, 'Who Is That Silhoutte Messing Up My Damned Lighting?'

To those about to rock, we salute you.

I hope Anne stayed on the phone long enough to win a chance for prizes! Calling long-distance from California, as she was.

The guys had some very interesting discussions, and they are all hyperintelligent and eloquent, but...they're four guys. They need to understand that potentially, at least, people are listening, and that what they are doing is still a performance of sorts, and needs to be understandable to the listeners.

That means, one person talks at a time. Also, it's YOUR show, fudge. They need to obey you and follow your lead. Maybe having fewer of them at a time would help. Do a 15 minute segment with PhysicsPhilosopher and then move on to more Weed or something. If you start a "bit", they need to follow you on that.

Otherwise it was a great show, and I enjoyed listening.

I still need to find the words to the MTA alma mater. It really sounds a lot like the YU alma mater. I'm sure they were written at the same time by the same person.

PsychoToddler said...

Oh, and Steg, you got mentioned on the air!

Kiwi the Geek said...

Could you put her radio shows on the Moshe Skier site? I googled "host mp3 free" and there were so many results I didn't know how to choose one. How much space are we talking here? Megaupload advertises 250MB free, and the file stays until it's inactive for 30 days.

PsychoToddler said...

It's a bit much for that site. I'd be interested in a podcast or something.

Kiwi the Geek said...

I know nothing of podcasts. Would people be able to save the mp3, or does it have to stream? Cuz I have old-fashioned 56k dialup.

Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

What wh-wh-wh-wh-what?

I got mentioned on the air?

PsychoToddler said...

Well, they mentioned a certain Washington Heights based vampire...

Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Naaa, my vampire lives in Kingston, upstate. It's my changeling that lives in Washington Heights!

Tonight's show featured guest appearances by Steg, Sean Connery, and The PT herself with her stirring rendition of "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYandZ"
