Listener comments!

  Wed. 3/28/07 12:26pm Jeffersonic:

When you mentioned Spazz's suggestion that you play "Rubber Room" for three hours it reminded of a DJ named Jason on WTTS' (Bloomington IN) late evening "New Music" slot who played Flipper's "Brainwash" repeatedly for around 30 minutes. What a wonderful radio moment that was for me, it put me in a good mood for weeks. He was fired, however.

You know, even though I'm not interested in every single goddam thing you play, I find that I love you as a person...

...in a creepy sort of way.

:p

I actually listened to some of the lyrics of the Dr. Stephen Baird song and had an impression different from yours: I thought he was singing from the pro-science, pro-chaos, pro-evolution corner. I checked on it and found http://www.scientificgospel.com/cgi-bin/drbaird/showpage.pl?page=bio:

"Stephen Baird was raised for twelve years in the Bible Belt. [...] After moving to California and attending Stanford University he underwent a conversion to rationalism. Almost immediately he noticed the dearth of scientific gospel music..."

He is not a submarine for the fundamentalists but a rationalist on a mission!
  Wed. 3/28/07 4:44pm Ken:

Erik - Sorry about that, I mis-spoke. Baird is clearly an anti-creationist, not anti-evolution as I said.

Simon - thanks, you creep me out too! just kidding.

Jeffersonic - in 1980 when I was Program Director of my student station in Ann Arbor, we played "It's My Party" for 24 hours after Reagan was elected president.

I think it was during this show that I heard some great but unusual organ playing, with very audible clicking of keys and the organist singing along wordlessly at one point. Who was that?
  Thu. 3/29/07 12:07pm Editor B:

Sorry, disregard my question, it was later in the day.

Dear Ken, thanks for completely fucking up my plan to play that Bobby Conn song first thing on Monday morning!!! Very considerate!!!
  Thu. 4/12/07 1:27pm Miqel.com:

Bill Mac ROCKED the House! That was awesome .. heard it live & was amazed but the video makes it all the more "real". This was a classic cosmic WFMU moment! So glad the marathon was a success, If WFMU folded it could well mean the end of the world. Long Live FREEFORM RADIO.
