Top of the morning to ya Ken. this Juana Molina is quite pretty. now for some java.
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:22am Ken:

Hey Steev. Another pint or two of coffee is just what I could use right now. Been up all night on the redeye from Seattle. Flew into Newark this morning, saw them turn off the Twin Tower lights as the plane was landing..
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:30am Negator:

DUMP! DUMP! DUMP!
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:30am Steven:

Wow, Ken. You chose my favorite Kahondo Style cut ever. Haven't heard that since I was plugging it for NMDS. Great set...
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:33am Hendrik:

It's wednesday. Get ready for theatral WFMU speakers.
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:33am Listener Dave:

DMP, DMP, DMP!
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:35am Hendrik:

Wow DJ Yoda samples Scala, a belgian choir covering Smells like Teen spirit.Nice
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:39am snake:

what no September songs today?I was really looking forward to more versions!!!
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:45am -max-:

Welcome back Ken! New 7SD tonight?
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:45am Ken:

I've got a few more September Songs but I didn't find any really outstanding ones like last week's James Brown and Lee Hazelwood versions.. But I will play a few more and look for more *really* good ones for next week.
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:50am Ken:

Thanks Max - Seven Sec Delay will be a re-run tonight - Andy bagged out. Any requests?
  Wed. 9/12/07 9:52am north guinea hills:

not to be be confused w/ the mark clifford/sarah peacock scala
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:01am efd:

it's time for radio chat room!
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:02am Sarah:

What's radio chat room?
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:03am Vivian:

Hurray! More Baloney Lady!
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:07am Wes:

Hey Ken! I'm retreating to the corner of my office to listen to this Zebra Trucks, which is taking me to the world of Napolean Dynamite, for what it's worth. A strange world where not much happens, and not much matters. Tis good for a while, I suppose. Soothing in a doomed way.
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:07am JJZ:

Not even some automated Andy?
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:09am Ken:

You were supposed to call in during Zebra Trucks! That's what radio chat room was.. that song comes on and the phone lines are open. Oh well....
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:13am Vivian:

Ken, back during the last Marathon drive, you played snippets from what I imagined to be a leader speaking during labor union meeting. I remember 'We're not bad, we're just nice guys'. Does this ring a bell? Where did you get the audio?
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:19am ken in denver:

So what's up with the Christmas music for Rosh Hashanah?
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:25am Hendrik:

Ken sounds like that singer from the scorpions when he transforms his voice
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:25am Wes:

Ken, three or four shots of ice cold Jager and you'll be feelin' fine. Cures anything except hiccups.
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:29am jeremiah:

hey ken. who's that overly defensive guy you play behind songs sometimes? 'colored people? gotta love em.'
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:31am Ken:

Jeremiah and Vivian - the overly defensive union leader / canadian performance artist who loves redwoods, colored people and whales is none other than the Nihilist Spasm Band.
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:37am Trish:

"It's not my fault!!"
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:40am Vicki:

Lots of Nihilist Spasm Band here - http://www3.sympatico.ca/pratten/NSB/
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:43am Ken:

Speaking of which, there's a new Nihilist Spasm Band LP out... must.. stand... up.... go... to... library...... getting dark.....
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:46am helpful:

Here's a taster of NSB - http://mutant-sounds.blogspot.com/2007/02/nihilist-spasm-band-no.html
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:52am jeremiah:

'maybe some times we went to far, but now we won't!'
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:52am Vivian:

Ken! That's it! Decent fellows! We won't go too far!
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:54am Wes:

Speaking of Dinosaur L.....Polmo Polpo's remix/rework of "Kiss me again and again.." is an excellent piece of work! I'd like to hear that sometime.
  Wed. 9/12/07 10:54am jeremiah:

'too far' i meant. i hate it when people do that.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:01am Listener Dave from NH:

Glad to see that I'm not the only Polmo Polpo nerd that listens to Ken's show.
Any chance of getting a repeat of James Brown's "September Song"? That was a BEAST.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:22am jeremiah:

the sixteens!!! these are my friends from oakland! weird to hear them on jersey radio.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:24am pat:

you gotta follow OOIOO up w/ Afrirampo
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:27am Mickey Mephistopheles:

That and a recording of a Radical Cheerleaders group.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:29am Listener Dave:

Is this an out of body radio experience yet?
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:31am jeremiah:

the sixteens were in berlin for a while too.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:35am Wes:

Marshall Tucker Band! Holy crud...I think I'm listening to my local commercial "classic rock" station or sumthin'....be right back after this message from pfizer and e-harmony.com! Just kidding, Toy Caldwell was a talented fella.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:37am The Framinator:

sheepishly admits to really enjoying the Marshall Tucker Band
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:37am Mickey Mephistopheles, again:

Has the Marshall Tucker Band barrier been broken yet? If not, it has been now.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:39am Ken:

Credit where credit is due: John Allen broke the Marshall Tucker barrier a few years ago.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:39am amanda:

Don't know that I'd make a habit of it, but any time you want to fire up the Marshall Tucker is ok by me.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:42am Kenzo:

Framinator: I was just starting to worry about you!
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:54am Ken:

Thanks for your comments everybody.

Truly, we are in the utopian period of the playlist comments section. No trolls, cranksm perverts or sock puppets have shown up yet. I'm enjoying this while it lasts.
  Wed. 9/12/07 11:56am Vivian:

I'm enjoying Exhausted Island Machine. With the exception of Marshall Tucker, excellent show today considering your lack-of sleep state.
  Wed. 9/12/07 12:00pm Mickey Mephistopheles:

One vote for radio chatroom
  Wed. 9/12/07 8:07pm Wiki Weenie:

So little is known of this Ken Fellow - Perhaps the listeners here will fill us in .. . .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Freedma
  Thu. 9/13/07 11:38am Michael:

I love the pop-up player - fantastic. That is all.
  Thu. 9/13/07 1:50pm Kenzo:

Michael: It loves you right back.
  Thu. 9/13/07 9:39pm Duckhugger:

Ken, where does one go about finding Kahondo Style? I've been searching around online and can't find music by them anywhere. Any chance of putting some of that up on the WFMU Blog?
