Every year Andy promise's to write the SSD blog one post, usually around his birthday. Here's this year's submission, just in time for the marathon:
Tonight from 6-7pm, I will be live on the air on WFMU (wfmu.org) with my co-host and boss, Field Marshall Ken Freedman. I always try to have fun for one hour while Ken does everything he can to ruin my good time. Still, it's the only radio station that would ever have me. I've been doing this weekly show with Ken for 18 years.
So you know something about Ken:
Ken is a sad, bitter little man and our fundraisers are a good time to humiliate him and exploit his willingness to do just about anything, including prostituting himself, to raise money for his adorable little public hippy noise radio station.
As for me, I always strive to maintain my humor and dignity, but I guess that's how Ken and I are different.
Anybody who pledges $75 or more gets a Collectible Commemorative Plate showing myself, Ken and Barack Obama. It wasn't easy getting the President to pose with us for this, so please take advantage of this offer. You can see the plate on last week's Seven Second Delay page here:
This plate is sure to rise in value. A full dinner set of plates (seven plates) can be yours for a donation of $365.
Here is how the show's fund raising works tonight from 6-7pm:

If you're a Facebook friend, make sure you mention that and I will thank you personally on the air.
For every $1000 we raise, we will spin the wheel of fate, which has 24 spots on it. Wherever the wheel lands, Ken and I have to do some horrible thing.
Here is what is on the wheel this year:
Singing American Pie At a Rock Club in Hoboken
Giving out our personal cell phone number and email addresses over the air
Letting a random Friend Take Over our Facebook Account for One Week
Drinking a shot of Chinese Ginseng Liquor (Maotai), which tastes like dirt
Go to work at the Monk Office / WFMU dressed as a Sgt Pepper era Beatle
Reenact a scene from "The Bucket List"
In addition, Ken has agreed that if we raise $13,000 in an hour, he will get a horrible tattoo on his left arm. I was suggesting "McCain-Palin 2008" since Ken is such a sad old hippy. Ken really deserves this, because I got quite a working over on the show last week.
One other spot on the wheel will lower that $13,000 Tattoo Threshold by $2000.
WFMU also offers all sorts of crapola for gifts of any size, and those items can all be seen here:
So join my good friend Tony Shalhoub and make a pledge to my radio program tonight! Dont forget to mention Facebook when you pledge so I can thank you personally on the air!
