Benjamen just told me that WFMU's station manager is raising funds for the station today by launching into the air with a lawnchair attached to helium party balloons. For every $1000 in donations, staffers will tie one balloon to the chair. There's a live video stream here.
(If you aren't familiar with WFMU, you are missing out. It's the best radio station ever. Here's the free iPhone app that streams archives and live broadcasts of the show.)
