Official measurement at The KZiM Tower: 7" - that DEFINITELY makes it a record. A 45, in fact.

I guess Bryan and the other non F4W fellow talked about Retribution. I'm severely disappointed that I was set up to hear the word "geeks" and it didn't happen but maybe you gotta be a paying subscriber for that

Hey so did the Figure Four Radio shouting guys shout about the commentators not being able to read names on graphics last night? Usually I'd have seen an Observer retweet on that by now but I may have missed it

So once again Old Dutch was like "ya know...there aren't enough tortilla chip flavours out there." These "Mexican Street Corn" Restaurant Style strips are okay, probably totally unnecessary, but if you like paprika, garlic and lime AND you like tortilla strips, go figure, we're good. These will make a good base for me to microwave some cheese that wasn't otherwise already "with Mexican seasonings" on top of it - if I do it using the cheese WITH nacho spices it'll be like nacho-ception or something and I don't think any of us want to test THOSE culinary frontiers

19.10 14:36 It's like how Burger King commercials contain so much totally organic dialogue from food influencers who always say "WHOPPER® sandwiches" just like the rest of us
19.10 14:33 The only place they're called "CHEETOS® snacks" instead of "Cheetos" is in Cheetos commercials because of trademark lawyers - sorry, I meant to tweet this twelve hours ago

After weeks, even months, possibly years of us teasing you the time has finally come.
Blue Sun Soda Shop has expanded and we are over-the-top happy to announce our new location in Richfield Minnesota.
We hope you can visit and let us know what you think of the new store. It is a smaller version of Blue Sun Soda Shop but we managed to pack all the fun into a smaller space.
Open now for all your sugar love.

Isn't it fun how the @NASCARonNBC guys keep talking to a football player? It really reminds you how you could be watching football right now instead of this race

Gonna walk to the station - it's 53º yet somehow it's supposed to drop ten degrees by the time I walk home. Maybe I should find the ol' fingerless gloves

It's Member Drive time at KFAI! I wrote a little bit about @kfaiFMradio and me in the hopes I'll convince you to donate (but you can read it for free):

Oh good it's that time of year when WWE commentators pretend there may be people out there seeing their first pro wrestling ever and need constant explanation of the rules

Part of being a music nerd is just being a nerd. As I usually do around member drive time, I went to our logging service Spinitron and pulled my "lifetime" numbers at KFAI to see where I'm at. If I compiled everything correctly and this spreadsheet don't lie, I have logged 2056 spins across on air and streaming shows going back to my first fill-in gig on "Pop Shop" back in August 2018. Now, 876 of those are from the web only show Dollar Bin, but that's still way more on air spins that I ever THOUGHT I'd do...and since I started on Saturdays in July I've already logged 394 spins - and of those, 209 were tagged "New" and 139 were tagged "Request." That's amazing! Over half new and over a third request. Here's the thing. If it's at all possible, I'd like those percentages to be even higher!

I don't think there's another station on the dial in our market that would allow so much new music and give over so much time to let the audience suggest what gets played instead of some overly-focused focus group and/or the board of I Heart Radio in cooperation with the heads of Universal/Sony/Warner - and I'm sure you would chime in and say well, that's probably why terrestrial radio isn't doing so well overall, and I'd pretty much agree with you. And I can't lie - when you seed it correctly, the Spotify algorithm is dynamite, but that can take a while and where you end up is a place where very rarely are you pushed out of what the algorithm sees as your comfort zone to get you to experience a bigger, better variety of new and interesting music - and there's so much out there.

Tomorrow I have a very special Member Drive edition of "Weekend on Demand," programmed almost entirely by listeners, many of whom were good enough to play DJ themselves and record a drop for me to play along with their requests. There's 2020 music, of course - there are some classics - there's probably the oldest thing I've played yet - and a few other surprises. But most of all this show (and this particular episode of it) is something I'm so proud to share with YOU! I hope it's something you would not only be interested in listening to but ALSO maybe come back to every Saturday at 5 after that. If Saturdays aren't good for you, we will have it archived for 14.

If you've read this far, you probably know that the underlying point of this post is that once again I am asking you for financial support of Fresh Air Radio so that opportunities like the one I've received, and so many before me, remain stable and viable for more new (and way fresher than me) voices in the years to come. If you have the means, please consider heading over to our website to make a donation - or you can do it right here on The Facebook, but there are mugs and totes over on dot org. And if you currently do not have the means, that's okay too - you can always still listen to us, and I hope you do. AND tell a friend about KFAI. And tell them to tell one of their friends too.
