Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-02-21
Radio oddities, snippets from 1940-present, strange stuff, radio pranks, news broadcasts from hostage takers, to Lennon's murder, to 911, really strange collection of stuff. All of it is FMU related, either overtly or the subject of an inside joke. This CD was made available only to a few select radio stations, not for sale. Detailed liner notes that, while offering great explanations as to the origin of this stuff, come across pretty damn narcississtic, self congratulatory (admittedly well-deserved in places, not-as-funny-as-they-think-they-are in others).

Disc 1:

1) sounds like 40's radio
2) WOR
early "talk" radio
3) "the drug problem" at rock concerts, AM news
4) 1973 murders on the radio
5) NPR cough restraint
6) death threat
7) "Ahm the greatest radio station in the world"
8) death threat threat recant
9) strange rap
10) more of 6,8 theme
11) more mojo, w/ bootsie collins
12) more 6, 8, 10
13) strange skipping CD voiceover
14) "its friday" wierd monologue
15) talk radio - homo's revenge
16) talk radio host disassembles a stupid college republican type, rips typical republican talk radio idiots a new one
17) more talk radio, "report" that UFO was tailing Hale Bopp comet, report inspired the cult that killed themselves
18) radio duo splitting up on the air
19) FCCs, do not play!
20) John Lennon Tower Records promo, dont play as this may violate our underwriting rules
21) similar to above
22) John Lennon assassination, scan of the radio dial, for real
23) FCC, interview with murderer/hostage taker - "running for my fucking life"
24) 911 WTC collapse, talks about a "secondary explosion", conspiracy nuts?

Disc 2 (almost all studio comedy):

1) earliest fmu moment, JFK spoof
2) on-air comedy
3) spoken, weird, rambling
4) FCCs, no!! (fucking hilarious!!!)
5) "freudian fantasies" faux radio drama intro, brief
6) audio radio transmitter meter reading crossed with CB radio, Mark Lawrence would probably drop a log over this
7) sorta funny
8) old band music
9) radio dj faking an on-air bad acid trip
10) FCCs
11) faux promo spot
12) faux Leonard Cohen poem with beatnik jazz drumming, more like Rod McKuen
13) desperate phony listener call-in, ha ha
14) wfmu promo/LID combines sesame street with monty python
15) FCC
16) like 12
17) not so good LID
18) like 12
19) doofy duo in-studio comedy
20) prank listener call in, rates the cheesy song, "zoo crew" material
21) more "ha ha" in studio blabbing
22) prank call to Henny Youngman, tells some great jokes
23) call in ragging about ads
24) caller "i looove the show"
25) prank call-in, retard singing, talk
26) people like us/kenny G. classic "i'm from Vagina"
27) those two guys who laugh at their own jokes on wednesday
28) setting up a promo with King Coleman
