fruvous on the radio
Now that we are deep into the hiatus hearing Fruvous on the radio is becoming rarer. I thought we might tell everyone when we hear them. I did this morning. Claudia Marshall on WFUV in New York played "Gotta get a message to you."

Five years later I'll answer the question. A filk is giving different lyrics (often funny) to a song. Think of "on top of spaghetti" sung to the tune of "on top of old smokey."

I hate the west coast sometimes. I have NEVER heard Fruvous on the radio...

and I switched to WFUV during the Luther Wright and the Wrongs bluegrass Wall, and was happy to hear it, until Claudia came back and said "and before that, it was Moxy Fruvous, with..."
I was going to go into the shower but I waited till after Message, then I had to wait till Luther Wright was done.

I also heard the tailend of Message just as I was exiting the Lincoln Tunnel today. They're clawing at that last grasp of existance.
I'm at FUV now and Claudia said, "You know I played that for you."

Luckily when I'm home I have WXPN, which is like Mother's Milk to a hiatus-suffering fruhead.
Before their singer-songwriter weekend this year, they played "message." I caught the end of it in my car, and was very happy.

Darling Luka here at CKUA knows that Tyler and I love Fruvous, and occasionally plays them just 'cause she knows it'll make us smile. :)

WFUV is doing a Tom Waits day and they just played the live Noise version of Jockey Full of Bourbon.

I've heard "When She Talks" on Sirius a couple of times... kinda wish they picked a different song.

EWWWWWWWWWWW What station plays that?
I want to be sure to avoid it.

I've only heard Fruvous on the radio once in my life, and that was years ago. I wonder if I should start listening toa different station... any suggestions for the Seattle area?

I definitely heard MBLABOA on Iceberg (channel 85, the Canadian channel) the other day. Flipped out right then and there.
Much better than, "When She Talks."
...Have we figured out why that song exists yet?

It was developed to play to prisoners being interrogated but was banned by the Geneva Convention.

Yesterday I read this post. Last night I dreamed that I heard Fruvous on the radio. Yep.

Type Moxy Fruvous in YouTube Search... You get lots of videos, mostly old ones or new videos to Fruvous Songs. I spent a long time watching, remembering, when we could see them live.

They played Darlington Darling a few months ago around christmas when CBC radio was doing the whole "Make a playlist for Obama" thing...
