  Wed. 7/16/08 9:01am John from Oslo:

Wow, first here! Hi Ken, hi all! Sitting here in my brand new WFMU Tee! Yess! Now, weather; it is going to hit the 90s at 3pm in NY - Oslo is another matter...
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:01am Mark:

First comment, morning Ken
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:01am Mark:

oops
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:02am Lizardner Dave:

Hello Ken. Hope you are well this morning. Monday was Bastille Day. Any chance of playing the Rush song Bastille Day for us reptiles?
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:02am John from Oslo:

haha, markie!
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:03am Fantod:

NO!

LOL
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:03am Mark:

Ya beat me John from Oslo
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:05am John from Oslo:

Well, Mark - we're 6 hours ahead of New York...
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:05am Doug:

I just saw Wire on the Box 1979 for the first time yesterday and my life was changed.
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:05am Mark:

That must be it
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:06am Ken:

Hi all. I am happy to report that we will be playing no Rush this morning. Although I hear that Geddy was awesome the other night at Jones Beach.
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:07am swami:

About the pic: I never realized that David Byrne and Tracy Lords worked together.
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:10am John from Oslo:

No Rush Ken, oh shoot! That means no
* Heart
* Bad English
* The Alan Parsons Project
* Van Halen
* Electric Light Orchestra

* The Smashing Pumpkins
* Giant
* Alan Parsons
* Asia
* Meat Loaf
* Supertramp
* Dream Theater
* Def Leppard
* Winger
* Europe
* Journey
* Queensrÿche

Either... hahah
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:12am Ken:

Quite a little challenge you set for me there John! I think I could maybe fit in some Van Halen... or at least David Lee Roth. But save your songs for when we play "name a hit" in a little while.
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:13am Lizardner Dave:

That is disappointing to the reptile community. I suggest you be particularly aware of snakes on your next visit to the woods Ken. We wouldn't want anything to happen to you out there
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:16am dei x:

the fluffy bunnies and lil' squirrels will keep the snakes in check.
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:17am cheri:

g'morn ken & everyone else,,ken i had ONE HELLAVA weekend, lots of fun. ohh ken now that i'm 27 i will keep miss b, & t.d.=)=)=)
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:17am -max-:

I'm sorry, Ken. Running late today, but feel free to carry on without me. I'll be at my desk within the hour. See you at 7SD tonight!
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:18am dl roth:

You have meddeled with forces of sweden Mr. Ken and you must play in honor of a Rush free morning- Thundermug, White Flame, Bob Seger System, Death and of course Fort Mudge Memorial Dump and dont forget Thunder Mother (thanks crotchbat) - no I have to go back to television!
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:38am Dan:

What
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:44am Blue Sausage Infant:

My money's on the GLOBAL FINANCIAL DISASTER outcome.

.......c'mon, global financial disaster!
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:44am miss buxley:

ohhhh ken,are you gonna mangle soft rock hits of the 70s again this week??
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:50am molerat:

Whoah. What's the source of that b&w animation next to the Godfathers track on the playlist?
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:53am jeff:

>7/16/69, Apollo 11 blasted off from Cape Kennedy, Fla., on the first manned mission to the surface of the moon.

expecting huge space rock set mixed w/ apollo 11 transmissions!
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:55am Ken:

Anybody got skype out there? Try me at wfmu.mainstudio
  Wed. 7/16/08 9:59am dei x:

does anyone have a copy of the Chinese public restroom etiquette sign? I'm inspired to do create a similar animation on its principles. (Not that I will follow through.)
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:00am andy in Berlin:

Hi Ken,

I just tried skyping you but all I could hear was the music.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:01am Ike:

When I went to (western) China, I was disappointed that I didn't see more signs like that Shanghai one. That's a riot. Some investigation reveals that "virescence" means plants, but what the frak does "don't random through street" mean?!

http://tinyurl.com/5o2zkd
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:02am dei x:

vi·res·cence –noun, Botany. State of becoming somewhat, though usually not totally, green, due to the abnormal presence of chlorophyll. I guess we really have to see the sign in context?
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:02am Ken:

Andy, let's try that again when I go on mic!
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:02am nic:

"don't random" = wander...??
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:04am bw:

this sounds AMAZING!!!
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:06am JJZ:

It's sad that outsourcing is so widespread.

  Wed. 7/16/08 10:07am listener jeremy:

  Wed. 7/16/08 10:09am BW:

looking forward to tonight

soooaaakkkk
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:09am dei x:

listen to Ken, lying about his age...
JJZ, so that's what was going on with Sabrina...and Maria, engrish.com
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:16am Jim:

I was just laughing out loud in my office at the "50 year old man...what you gonna do about it?" line from The Fall (Mark E). I like the Fall stuff - not even in a funny way...but....
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:16am Andy in Berlin:

Hey, Great talking to you - as sloppy as it was. Someone was trying to call me up on the phone at the same time. Should I apologize for making the obvious no-brainer request? NO! Can never get enough of the Fall, you know.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:17am Ken:

Any other skype users, call me at wfmu.mainstudio and you can be the DJ the next set break,
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:19am cheri:

i know i'm late for this comment but i could relate to sabrina cause i'm just like her,,,,i need love & men!!!
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:21am Ken:

Cheri - As long as you're in character, it's still one post per show por favor.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:21am Andy in Berlin:

Gee, Ken it looks like you're about to open up a black box here. Glad to have been there to help you throw the bolt.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:27am maria:

hah! I thought that was a Fall parody.. it was wasnt it?
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:31am hjmaiere:

There's also "Olivia Neutron Bomb." I like the tune Alie(N)ation, but it might be a little contemplative for a Wednesday morning.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:35am JJZ:

Ken should do a radio play. He does voices, dramatic readings...
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:36am innocent listener:

yer makin my stummick hurt
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:37am BW:

don't forget the IPHONE lines

just rode past the one on prince street! estimated wait time 5 hours
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:39am Lizardner Dave:

I've passed the iPhone lines for a week now and gotten a good hearty laugh every time. Apple geeks are like NASCAR fans who only root for Fords over Chevys or whatever. Except NASCAR fans woudln't stand in line for two days waiting for the next Silverado.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:44am JJZ:

Maybe they're looking to turn it around on ebay?
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:47am John from Oslo:

Ah, Dusan Makajev's Sweet Movie ( the girl with the knife, and the guy covered in sugar)
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:48am John from Oslo:

or I might me wrong...
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:48am Ken:

Yay John!! You're the first one to name one of the films! Isn;t Sweet Movie great? I havent seen it in like 30 years though. Gotta put it in the queue.
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:50am John from Oslo:

... and Montenegro by Makajev is also a scream - remember that remote controlled toy tank...
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:52am james coburn:

groovy baby
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:53am north guinea hills:

makajev's "sweet movie" is one of my all time favorites!
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:56am John from Oslo:

oh, is it a name that film thing, well the one above is Bergman's "Det sjuande inseglet" - and above that hmmm metropolis?! and the one above that... is it the Fountainhead, Ayn Rand?! - oh, I'm guessing here...
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:58am north guinea hills:

whoops, it's spelled, Dušan Makavejev, my bad!
  Wed. 7/16/08 10:59am north guinea hills:

ok, the comment page doesn't like slavic accents and the ilk.....
  Wed. 7/16/08 11:02am Tom:

Please someone tell me the source of the "groovy baby" sound clip. It is stuck in my skull and will never come out unless I learn more.
  Wed. 7/16/08 11:02am Blue Sausage Infant:

I wanna be dancing horse-head man when i grow up.
  Wed. 7/16/08 11:03am Ken:

  Wed. 7/16/08 11:23am Lizardner Dave:

Hello Ken. I noticed last week's programme still doesn't have a title. Are you having problems coming up with titles? I'm sure people here on the accu-comment-playlist-9000 could help with some titles.
  Wed. 7/16/08 11:26am Mark:
