Over the past 13 weeks, I've used this space for sharing with you secret peeks into the private lives of the peerless talent that makes up the WFMU air staff. We've ogled Joe Belock's spiral notebook; we've wondered what need Liz Berg has for a bag of monkey parts; we've learned what liquid fuels Fabio's weekly excursions; why, we've even seen some evidence of just how long Irwin Chusid's been haunting these halls. This week, we shake it up a bit, in honor of MARATHON.
Yep, the Marathon's on, and we're doing the on-air money-grubbing straight through to Sunday March 18th, when we put another year's fundraiser to bed with a helluva party (evidence | more evidence). The Marathon Finale stars a cavalcade of WFMU DJs rising naked before your ears, with live karaoke band behind them, to blow out the Marathon in song. This, my friends, is the 7th Annual Hoof n'Mouth Sinfonia, and it is this tradition that we celebrate with this week's (and next week's) edition of the game.
I present to you the actual song that one WFMU DJ will be performing with the Hoof n'Mouth Sinfonia (on Sunday March 18th from 7pm til about midnite) - your job: guess which DJ!
Jilted John, "Jilted John" (mp3 for download, 4megs)
It's a comedy-punk classic, sure to become even more punkily comedic after Sunday March 18th's startling performance by whom?
The rules of all previous rounds of the game still apply, though we'll make things a little more exciting prize-wise. This week, in honor of the inebriated character of the Marathon Finale, winner gets a set of beer coasters!
