The Best Show on WFMU is a huge source of comedy goodness that Will & I have enjoyed for years. And years. And years.

They’re a freeform public radio station. No commercials. All goodness.

Completely listener-supported.

Normally fundraising marathons are boring, but the Best Show marathon shows are even more fun. People like Ted Leo, Patton Oswalt, John Hodgman, Paul F Tompkins, Jen Kirkman and more show up to lend their support. C'mon, if it’s good enough for them, isn’t it good enough for you?

You can listen, or even watch here.

Five bucks. That’s what I’m asking my friends to donate. Five bucks. You don’t have to call, just fill out the form above. Or call 800-989-9368!

Check out the super-awesome swag here.

Inspired by Lukas’ post of the Ralph Records Goobers album last week, here’s a companion album: Potatoes, an out-of-print collection of folk songs that was released on vinyl in 1987 and on CD in 1989 with a slightly different lineup. Here’s the complete collection of material from the CD version (including folk songs by Reverend Howard Finster, Mark Mothersbaugh, Half Japanese, Bongwater, The Tinklers, The Residents, Snakefinger, and Negativland), along with a couple bonus Potatoes tracks sliced from my vinyl version of the album (the version pressed with potato-brown vinyl).

“Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.”
