First comment! Woo hoo!
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:04pm Laurie:

Hiiiiiiiii, Pseu.
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:09pm andrew:

Woah love that Twinkle
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:09pm pseu:

hi kids - welcome back laurie!!
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:11pm Laurie:

Awwww, thanks. I was at Mates of State last week laughing at the kids try to clap in time to "These Days." That is not a song made for hand clapping, kiddos.
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:14pm pseu:

givin'' it the ol campfire try i guess...
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:20pm Laurie:

The worst part was this pudgy short guy in a... I don't know, a short brim hat? Like, a commie Fidel hat or something, it was a stupid hat is what I'm trying to say, okay? So, this guy was trying to flirt with these three our four girls. I don't know if he knew them, but it was truly tragic. He tried getting the girls to dance with him, and he attempted to twirl each of the girls, and he failed epically. Because only rich girls take cotillion classes, okay?

Anyway, it was pretty annoying. He wouldn't shut up, and I really wanted to flick that stupid hat off his head, but they had my favorite beer. So I was content to just grumble internally or whatever.
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:26pm miss buxley:

wuzzzzup pseu??? i ADORE gordon lightfoot,,hes mellow,,,,,=)=)=) PEACE
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:36pm Laurei:

Oh, miss buxley. You would. You would.

Okay, I was in Minneapolis during Pride Week one time. And Bob Mould was going to play. Silly me and my friends showing me around the town assumed Bob was going to play last. He probably looked at the lineup and said, "Yeeeeeeeaaaaahhh... I'm not waiting around to listen to this crap," and he decided to go first. SMOOTH MOVE, BOB. Smooth move. It was basically poor man's Melissa Ethridge/Indigo Girls all over the place. Bad news. The night was salvaged though!! But that's another story.

I'm super jealous I won't be able to be at ATP in person. I will probably skip a Hercules and Love Affair DJ set to stay home and listen to it. I don't need to see the dude from Hercules and Love Affair spin records or whatever is going to go on there.
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:38pm Andrew:

Hey pseu thanks for getting me through my chem homework!
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:46pm miss buxley:

i know i'm riskin this post but i NEVER go to discount stores,,,,
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:47pm pseu:

because you're glued to your computer watching everyone?
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:54pm Laurie:

Oh snapricots!
  Fri. 9/19/08 8:54pm miss b.:

could you please play more GORDON LIGHTFOOT-- I ,LOVE HIM,,,THANK U SO MUCH this is my last post.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:00pm hfox:

i'm pretty sure guitar hero includes war pigs and search and destroy, i don't think that sucks, eh?
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:05pm randy in NC:

Gak, Jackson Browne. When I was in college, all the girls were gaga over him. Me I preferred Sparks and Roxy Music. Girls tended to get driven away by that. I found Metal Machine Music was a great way to clear out a party. I guess that's why I listen to FMU...
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:05pm andrew:

Yelling with laser sound effects
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:05pm daniel:

Hey! You must be as old as me.
I hated all that Bostyx shit in high school too.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:08pm Drew:

I hated it in high school, but I like it now. Well, Boston at least. The first album.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:09pm hfox:

pseu, why so dang defensive? ps, i hate boston, foreigner, and styx
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:09pm listener paul:

pseu = hawt
i swear
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:10pm randy in NC:

Boston, Foreigner, Styx... Maybe it was because AOR radio played the same 50 songs over and over and over and over for about 5 years from maybe 1975 on.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:10pm Laurie:

I listened to mostly PJ Harvey and Cocteau Twins in high school. Most of my friends were into Tori Amos. I also had a few "Mansonite" friends. I don't know.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:11pm Jim:

Comment and something to think about re: Frampton Comes Alive.... I think we can all agree that it was THE LP that put him on the map, right? Before that he was a little-known session player, had a band called Camel, whatever. So my question is this: if Frampton Comes Alive is the LP most people heard as their introudction to him, then why is it the audience on the LP seems to know the words to EVERYONE OF THESE SONGS? They weren't hits prior to this LP, it wasn't a "greatest hits" tour... What's the deal?
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:13pm Steve:

It sure did suck being bombarded on the radio by Jackson Browne and the Eagles in the 70s. Thank God I had my Bowie, T.Rex, and Lou Reed records at the time. Great playlist by the way.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:15pm randy in NC:

Actually Frampton comes alive was from '76, and he had been touring heavily throughout the earlier '70s. I saw him with Humble Pie as the opening act for Derek and the Dominoes at the Fillmore East in '70 or '71.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:15pm Laurie:

Oh, I took a long time getting into this Salteens album. The cover is super emo and misleading. I love it.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:16pm listener paul:

mott the hoople
pls play; haven't heard in yrs.
exception or rule?
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:17pm randy in NC:

Yeah Bowie, T-Rex, Velvets. Any thing with a black and white cover picture was good...
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:17pm Jim:

Fair enuff re: Frampton, he toured a lot, but it doesn't answer the question how THOUSANDS of people at this show knew these songs inside out.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:20pm Jim:

Aside to Frampton Comes Alive. A little known fact is that the opening act on this tour was a band called Natural Gas headed by ex-Badfinger guitarist Joey Molland.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:29pm randy in NC:

Wiki says it's the 4th best selling live album of all time after Garth Brooks, Springsteen, and the Eagles.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:37pm Andrew:

I'm a Jars of Clay fan from way back
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:38pm Jim:

I have absolutely no comment to that fact. Just another layer of sadness in the regret pit I'm baking.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:38pm pseu:

I'd like to speak with you about Jesus....
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:39pm jim:

Jesus? Was he in Spiritualized?
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:40pm Andrew:

Ya, all I heard back in my formative years was Christian rock. Never could bring myself to denounce Jars of Clay.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:46pm Jim:

Another fake "live" recording: Benny & The Jets.
  Fri. 9/19/08 9:47pm Laurie:

The only good thing about the '08 VMAs was listening to those German kids from Tokio Hotel talk. Foreigners talk funny!
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:04pm doron:

can ya pick up pseu? monticello calling
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:06pm knowfish:

Is thatRandy in Asheville?
Laurie I sort of second the Mott request bwo Bowies Panic in Detroit
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:07pm knowfish:

Jim- Jesus was in Spacemen 3
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:07pm randy in NC:

No, I'm about 3 hours east.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:09pm knowfish:

Got a randy here totally into the Glam thang still
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:09pm Laurie:

fish friend, I sooooo did not request Mott the Hoople.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:09pm john:

So when Sonic sang he walked with Jesus, it was just about going to rehearsal? Hi.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:11pm knowfish:

my bad- it was Paul
How many Randy's like Glam rock and doesn't that go well with the name?
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:12pm pseu:

John, you keep talking about this practicing stuff. Out with it or at least let me know what you do.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:14pm knowfish:

There's a capitol H in rehearsal, in rehab, & H
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:18pm Andrew:

My friend Deirdre likes this one.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:19pm john:

Well, I was never in Spacemen 3, though I did love them dearly at the time. I love this Brown Submarine record at this time. Bob's never sounded better. Last night I just went to see friends play; my month as Temporary West Coast Correspondent is coming to an end.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:22pm pseu:

  Fri. 9/19/08 10:24pm tim:

  Fri. 9/19/08 10:30pm Laurie:

You know, I would like to have Jay Brannan as my gay boyfriend. I need to replace my old one, Byron. He moved to Paris. :'(

I hope he enjoys making out with girls in a platonic manner.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:34pm john:

I get that a lot. An old girlfriend back when Spacemen 3 were still together used to call me Secret Squirrel. Ironically, it turned out that it wasn't so much that I didn't tell her stuff; she just didn't listen.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:37pm pseu:

acch, please, it's typical...
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:40pm listener paul:

ah, high school. reminds me of the time the sheriff called my house wanting to talk to me about this girl in my class who i didn't know liked me well enough to, uh well, have the sheriff call me when she ran away from home. you know?
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:41pm listener paul:

sorry laurie
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:43pm bartelby:

I sat next to the rudest person I have ever encountered on the bus just spare minutes ago
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:43pm listener paul:

pseu = radio crush
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:46pm Laurie:

Do tell, bartelby.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:48pm pseu:

Laurie, stop baiting him, please. Listener Paul, thanks.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:51pm toni d.:

pseu lets do lunch,,my treat
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:54pm pseu:

Oh, I'll be busy for the next uhhh, 30,000 lunchtimes.
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:56pm bartelby:

Ugh, this guy squeezes in next to me, not obese but his knees are apart like he's in stirrups. So I am squashed up against the barrier behind the driver, then he reaches his arm right across my face and grabs the pole to my left, so I can't even read my book. This is for the entirety of a fairly long trip. Then I stop at Wallgreens and someone with a gum emergency has to cut in front of me
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:56pm marcus:

I'm glad to discovered The Dodos and Inquiet in your show. Thanks! WFMU = <3
  Fri. 9/19/08 10:59pm john:

Oh, (putting on one of my other disguises) if it makes you feel better, and i hope it does, we haven't avoided the next great depression. We've just avoided it for this week.
  Fri. 9/19/08 11:08pm Andrew:

You wouldn't get any bagels, tho...
  Sun. 9/21/08 3:00am brother sister records:

thanks for playing INQUIET :)

  Sun. 9/21/08 3:50am Ajkm:

Running on Empty is classic OBA (older brother album). I was at a wedding once, and he was a guest, but oddly neither James nor Livingston Taylor showed up. No Linda R., either, or any member of the Eagles.

PS I live in the Hilton in Al Ain, UAE.
