Listener comments!

best playlist ever!! ending with 'Run For Your Life' was pure genius!!
Thanks for making my morning!
  Wed. 2/14/07 12:37pm Sloane:

Hmmmm... maybe I'm just a bit down today, but "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" is quite a sad song for the treatment it seems to get from Walter Brennan & Jerry Reed; those versions seem to insult someone or something; they're too poppy or smiley or something. I blame the RIAA or its predecessors.
That new version I've heard lately does it justice; that guy sounds frustrated & confused, just like the guy who came back broken from the war.
  Wed. 2/14/07 1:21pm zoe:

hey ken, that was the song i was thinking of. too bad i don't really like neil hannon.
  Wed. 2/14/07 2:11pm Ken:

yeah., I'm not crazy about the Jerry Reed version of "Ruby." But I love anything with Walter Brennan or a Walter Brennan imitator.

If anybody feels so inclined, I'd love to know what the body count is for today's show! (The total deaths in all the songs.)

  Wed. 2/14/07 4:28pm Travis:

Check out Richard Cheese's sleezy lounge version of Creep. He says "friggin'" instead of "fuckin'", so you wouldn't even have to edit it.
  Wed. 2/14/07 5:42pm fatty jubbo:

that Linda Laurie song is pretty damn amazing.
  Wed. 2/14/07 9:39pm listener jeff:

way to go ken - david allen coe!
  Wed. 2/14/07 9:55pm Ken:

How I wish I could've played David Allen Coe's incest song ("Fuck You Again," I think it's called) - truly one of the most disturbing songs I've ever heard.
  Thu. 2/15/07 2:13pm paul:

great show, Ken. was hoping for ? and the Mysterions, though.
  Thu. 2/15/07 6:31pm amber from MO:

Ahhh, domestic violence...Antony & the Johnsons' "Fists of Love" would've fit in well here. Also, kudos for the Shangri-Las! "I used to say...a tisket...a tasket...a green and yellow basket..."

  Thu. 2/15/07 6:35pm davereeves:

that show rules
  Fri. 2/16/07 10:46pm bwalker:

the ambrose song is amazing.. keeping the .. screams? (he beating her on the subway platform? the broadway 6 platform.. the one with the "no exit" ahead sign) in the background for the break was almost too much to bear.. or were those love sounds?
  Sat. 2/17/07 12:40pm Ken:

The sound effects at the end of the Ambrose track were actually from the S&M sound effects collection "Tortura," which I used throughout the show as part of my talkover bed. The Ambrose track actually ends with Linda Laurie saying "Ambrose?"

  Mon. 2/26/07 9:40pm Paul Elliott:

What's with the censoring of Creep??
  Tue. 2/27/07 1:17am Paul:

Sorry I meant 'fucking' censoring creep!
  Tue. 2/27/07 10:12am Ken:

Paul - I don't know about the country you're in, but here in the USA, the government recently passed a law saying that the word "Fuck" is illegal on radio and TV, and any station that plays it could be fined as high as $325,000 per "fuck." So that magnificent version of "Creep" could generate a fine as high as $975,000 US dollars. I'll put you down for half of it. Unfortunately, WFMU can't afford the other half.
