Ooh! "Pat" has two Ps in Japan.
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:08am bw:

u referin to the comic I accidently posted Parq?
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:14am Bad Ronald:

There's a perfect girlfriend joke here somewhere...
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:15am Parq:

Jais, Ben. I figured you were in reruns.
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:17am bw:

just showing that I can only function cut and copy style.. all fixed now.. the 45 covers are from a great site called lpcovers
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:17am monera:

1st comment. whoa!
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:25am Bad Ronald:

I thought Senor Wences was just a hand w/ a wig.
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:32am Jose El Plumero:

Hola amigos, buenas dias
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:32am Parq:

No, Ron, the face in the box was another part of his act. As the 45 cover suggests, he'd say, "Saw right?" and the box would open and the face would say "Saw right!" Culture marches on.
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:32am Yp:

Oh damn, I forgot about the 7" thing. This should be great.
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:34am Bad Ronald:

Thanks for the clarification Parq!
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:36am north guinea hills:

i have that flowchart 7" sean oneil's (and erin's) old band. now he does minimal techno in berlin
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:40am north guinea hills:

old school tortoise!
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:42am bw:

what does the new berlin stuff sound like?
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:49am north guinea hills:

well, since sean moved from philly last year, his stuff sounds like clinical kompact mimimal techno. he has two labels now found and unfound sounds. unfound is mostly techno stuff, while found is mostly field recordings droney stuff....
  Mon. 10/20/08 9:57am stingy d:

  Mon. 10/20/08 9:58am Bad Ronald:

  Mon. 10/20/08 9:59am stingy d:

  Mon. 10/20/08 9:59am billy jam:

  Mon. 10/20/08 10:20am s in s:

dracula cha cha cha??? that is bound to be the least likely word pair in history. LOL!!!
  Mon. 10/20/08 10:22am Bad Ronald:

  Mon. 10/20/08 10:23am bw:

  Mon. 10/20/08 10:35am JTK:

I was recently singing that Jimmy Rodgers tune. I have the vinyl version and have been meaning to pull it out of the pile to take a serious listen.

  Mon. 10/20/08 10:43am bw:

I really did jinx myself!! the first song at the wrong speed
  Mon. 10/20/08 10:44am Bad Ronald:

We still love you.

Tough break w/Roberta - offer her a sandwich, I'll bet she comes back on....
  Mon. 10/20/08 10:49am bw:

thanks BR
  Mon. 10/20/08 10:56am Lee:

I thought "lets go steady" was atom and his package?
  Mon. 10/20/08 10:59am Cecile:

Hugo and Luigi! The producer dudes who syruped up those RCA Sam Cooke records.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:07am Bad Ronald:

It's spelled Cha-Hua-Hua but pronounced "Like the Dog"!

(did not know that Cecille, thanks)
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:09am Cecile:

you're very welcome, Bad Ron.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:16am dc pat:

man that sounded like Charlie Feathers.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:17am dc pat:

oh.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:22am jess_shambler:

Don't forget about your local library, Ben Walker! Books are better off publicly collected. There's no public library for obscure 45s! Then again, maybe you're collecting rare books. That's okay.
PS. Your show is one of my new favorites of all time. Thanks for making Monday mornings bearable.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:24am bw:

THANKS jeSS
I do use the library for the word books, on my shelves are art books, comic books, and photo books.. heavy books - hope I don't move any time soon
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:27am GP:

Way to make that Stratocaster sound like a fiddle!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:31am ko:

i hope you don't move anytime soon, too.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:35am Bad Ronald:

Hey, that rabbit's doing what I was thinking!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:36am GP:

Nice cannonballs
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:41am Richard:

What a rad ATR cover!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:47am GP:

This Major Stars song is the best song I have heard today, sounds like some 60's proto-punk psychadelic garage band. If this is old stuff, they were WAY ahead of their time.
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:51am bw:

they recent.. check Brian Turner archives and hear live WFMU major stars sets!!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:52am Cecile:

I saw them live about 5 years ago. Crushingly great!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:52am GP:

Cool BW, thanks for the info...Again, I'm learning something new on FMU every day!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:54am dc pat:

man, WFMU should only play 45's all year. 7" ONLY!!!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:58am Parq:

Great start to the 45s week, Ben. The Modern Lovers wasn't a single, but it should have been. Let it forth, Liz!
  Mon. 10/20/08 11:59am bw:

I know.. parq.. but I play this song last every week.. couldn't not play it
  Mon. 10/20/08 4:00pm Jimi:

Thanks so much for putting all the great record covers up on your play list. Perfect kick off for the week! Is that Jane Fonda on the Mel Torme cover?
