It's marathon time! I am not going to ask you for money, but when WFMU DJ's do, some special events are planned. Pseu Braun, with co-host Gaylord Fields, will have Yo La Tengo on Pseu's Thing With A Hook, tonight at nine. The band, long tome friends of WFMU, will play your requests as you pledge. Bob Brainen played the group performing "Mr Tough" live at the station in 2006.
Monica talked about preparing for the marathon, and then played music by Harry "The Crown" Hosono, and Wendy Rene. Rene's real name was Mary Frierson, and was given her stage name, when recording for Stax, by Otis Redding.
John Allen played "All About Money" by Spontaneous Overthrow from Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984, a compilation of personally produced music.
The marathon began on Monday, and DJ's started giving musical pledge prizes and playing tracks from these premiums. Liz Berg played Dicky Design. Irene Trudel, Misty Roses. Scott Williams played "I Want To Take You On A Sea Cruise" from Gary Wilson's Forgotten Lovers album.
