The Wave Of The Future

January 2, 2008: Andy's Gum Chewing: A Listener Referendum

Welcome -- again -- to 2008, in which WFMU will celebrate its 50th anniversary and Andy Breckman will celebrate slinking into the shadows to cruelly eliminate a transient/whore. Two very important milestones.

This week's show may well go down in Seven Second Delay history, and that in itself bespeaks a kind of sadness. The ambition of this particular episode was nothing less than to change the program irrevocably. In honor of the impending primaries, we watched the listening audience, through a hopelessly faulty voting system, threaten to destroy a Seven Second Delay institution: Andy Breckman's gum-chewing.

The show, however, did not conclusively determine the true radio poision: the offending gum-chewing or the preening Miss Manners a.k.a. listener Tim. (It's Tim, really. Oh no, I editorialized.)

Next week: something about cooking? And wives. Wives cooking.

Doesn't Ken have a way of checking the unique IP addresses of internet comments? Because there was definitely ballot stuffing on both sides of the issue on the message board.

Andy will probably ignore the decision anyway, though.

I didn't get to call during the show but LET ANDY CHEW! Oh crud, it's too late...

We need the chewing! My goodness, they run light on filler/foreplay as it is.

That's funny, I always thought it sounded like Ken was chewing gum.
