You, sir, have started my week in the best of ways. My cubicle is not so gray this Monday morning.
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:29am Listener Dave:

Long time commenter, first time listener to this show. Really enjoying it. A fine way to start the work week!
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:29am Cecile:

Thanks, Benjamin, you are too good to me.
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:35am Ike:

I love this talkover music! You used it a lot on your overnights and I never tire of it. What is it?
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:35am TD:

Great job Mr. Walker. I look forward to you starting my work week.
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:35am SueB:

no Way! i just put a FOUND! bumper sticker on my car yesterday!
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:39am Sirius Lee:

greetings all!
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:42am SueB:

and 2 WFMU stickers - but that could hardly be called a coincidence
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:45am dc pat:

my wife won't let me put a wfmu sticker on our car. But I just read in the W. Post today that people w/ bumper stickers are more inclined toward road rage...
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:47am north guinea hills:

i love tape! thanks!
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:50am Justin:

robert wyatt ftw!
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:56am Ted from Baltimore:

Welcome to Monday a.m., Trent. Great show.
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:57am BW:

Jason B is up next - cassette from my ex

what is the #1 song for a mix tape
and what is #1 mix tape title
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:02am SueB:

oh the mix tape odd-song endings. bringing me back.... i know a girl who still tapes songs off the radio.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:09am SueB:

is this the same guy who got a ride from the airport and scared the shit out of his driver?
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:12am Cecile:

I liked mixtapes because it was so fun to decorate all the j-cards.

Do the cassettes have to be from exes? I have nice ones that I traded with an Internet that were thematic and really nicely put together. We'd have a theme, and do proper artwork, and go to town.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:12am Cecile:

Internet friend...
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:13am Sara:

Why keep them? Why keep them?? That's like asking why anyone would keep a love letter. That's basically what they are, right — audio love letters using other people's words. Love the site by the way! I was listening through it last week, really looking forward to what pops up next
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:15am north guinea hills:

i made my girlfriend a mix tape when we first met. i even provided a walkman so she could listen to it. we're moving in together at the end of the summer. it must have worked.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:16am Cecile:

Reader, I married him.

;D
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:16am dc pat:

#1 song for a mix tape: Why by the Dirty Wurds.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:16am Cecile:

that's a comment to NGH. I did not marry my Internet friend, just in case you care.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:19am SueB:

#1 name for mix tape: MIX TAPE
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:22am jonathan:

i'm pretty sure that every mix tape i received and gave had "please, please, please, let me get what i want" as the last song.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:25am dc pat:

If I remember correctly, London's Burning popped up a lot
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:27am north guinea hills:

when you can mix some stockhausen scratchings. w/ some sun ra & afro pop, birdsongs, and mojave 3, and she's impressed, you know you're onto something
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:27am Bad Ronald:

Buzzcocks "What Do I Get"
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:28am BW:

What do I get! I wish I had used that one
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:31am north guinea hills:

i've never heard of moussa doumbia. very nice. thanks banjamen!
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:31am gerardo:

Hola, Benjamin

Saludos desde Chile

Pretty good selection - listening attentively ;)
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:32am gerardo:

(Hi, Cecile - nice to read you around)
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:34am Bad Ronald:

Zappa's "Broken Hearts are for Assholes" - a little filthy but but also a good one.

Yes this set is very nice!!!
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:34am Cecile:

lol, thanks! I kind of leave a little trail of nonsense wherever I go...

NGH: Moussa is teh greatest! Best scream in funk.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:35am gerardo:

let's c...

"#1 song for a mix tape": anything by The Beatles
"#1 mix tape title": MX TXPX
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:39am gerardo:

lol, great, Cecile - leaving trails is leaving room for mystery and communication of all sorts ;)
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:44am Bad Ronald:

Yes congrats Benjamen! Excellent show. However, I beg to differ - Never too early for Punk! Keep up the great work. - thanks!
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:45am north guinea hills:

rock on benjamen, i got 3 hours of sleep too! i'm looking forward having lunch watching the euro cup.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:46am Cecile:

Punk - it's what's for breakfast.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:47am Bad Ronald:

RIGHT!!!
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:47am north guinea hills:

cecile, well, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, i should do it more often. punk, sounds tastier then the beer i had this morning.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:49am Bad Ronald:

NGH - They go hand in hand!
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:50am Cecile:

As the Clash sang: "speckless, drinking brew for breakfast"
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:50am north guinea hills:

you are right Bad Ronald, i stand corrected.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:51am Bad Ronald:

"Rudy Can't Fail"
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:52am swami:

"feckless"?
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:53am R.P.:

Three hours sleep? Now I feel better about the four I got. But it was worth it to see Thalia Zedek and Major Stars last night.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:53am Bad Ronald:

per dictionary.com -
having no sense of responsibility; indifferent; lazy.
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:56am Bad Ronald:

the Clash lyric reads:
How you get a rude and a reckless?
Don't you be so crude and a feckless
You been drinking brew for breakfast
Rudie can't fail
  Mon. 6/16/08 11:58am BW:

thanks everyone for joining in
see you next week
  Mon. 6/16/08 10:56pm Salat:
