¡Yo La Tengo en vivo!

Pero por radio. ¡Sí! Todos los años, Yo La Tengo hace un show en vivo para WFMU, una radio neoyorkina independiente. El show consiste en que la gente llama a pedirles que hagan un cover, y ellos lo tocan. Sí, lo sacan instantáneamente. ¿Resultados? Ya se podrán imaginar, pero siempre salen algunas cosas interesantes. Claro que para pedir un cover tienes que pagar, porque es una maratón para recaudar fondos para que la radio esta pueda sobrevivir. ¡Así que no se lo pierdan! Es este domingo de 5 a 8 pm, aunque fácil a las 4 o a las 6, por la huevada esa para salvar horas de luz, y lo pueden escuchar por internet. Les pongo el mail que me mandó Ira Kaplan personalmente (las errores son de él y no míos):
Good morning good morning,
"Who knows where the time goes?"
"It was a very good year."
I'm speaking in song titles because I'm thinking in song titles,
because it's that time of year again. On Sunday March 2 from 5-8 p.m.
eastern time, the Yo La Tengo, accompanied by Bruce Bennett of rock 'n'
roll's the A-Bones, will be on your radio and your computer, playing the
songs that you request as we once again help our favorite radio station,
WFMU, raise the money they need for another year of fantabulousness. If
you pledge to the station while we're on the air, you get to make a song
request and we'll do our best to play a "Song for You." It's that simple.
WFMU is on 91.1 in the greater Jersey City area and 90.1 (on WXHD) in the
Hudson Valley, and if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you
should probably tune in on your computer at And not only that,
but this is our Bar Mitvah year! That's right--the 13th anniversary of our
first requestathon. You won't want to miss a second.
While I've got your attention, I promised in a previous email not to
bother you again with my radio shows on WFMU, but like the Four Tops before
me, I can't help myself. In what may well prove even more death-defying
than taking your requests, I will be waking up, let's call it "late in the
evening" to do a shift from 6-9 a.m. eastern time on the web only this
Thursday, February 28. For those of you with short-term memory issues,
that's Please tune in to see if I can form a coherent sentence
at that hour, and if I can, please consider throwing a few dollars WFMU's

I Thank You,
