Phish dropping TTE from live repertoire

Citing overwhelming negative feedback on the internet, Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio announced that Phish would no longer perform their epic song Time Turns Elastic. Fans on internet forums have been complaining about the song since it was introduced, and venue managers across the country have been blaming the song for several trampling incidents caused by mass rushes to the restrooms.

"You know, you just can't please everybody," said Anastasio. "We liked the song, but the custies don't, and we owe it to them to give them a good show. Time Turns Elastic was an ambitious composition that didn't translate well on stage. We're hoping that Fishman's new vuvuzela quartet is more to the crowd's liking."

Help keep underwriting announcements off WPKN!

Next Tuesday, June 15th, WPKN staff will vote on a constitutional amendment that would allow paid commercial underwriting announcements on the air. WPKN has avoided this for the 20 years it has been listener supported. Underwriting announcements will alter the sound of WPKN, and not for the better. In addition to the phony commercials run during programming, there will be increasing pressure to alter the schedule so that the right kind of programs are at the right times for the corporate sponsor's advertising.

You can help stop this before it starts. Whenever you're listening to WPKN, call the programmer who's on the air and ask him or her to vote NO on the constitutional amendment. The phone number is 203-331-9756.

Thank you. The future of WPKN's integrity depends on you.
