  Wed. 4/1/09 9:06am JJZ:

Ah, today's Amazon MP3 special is pretty compelling. William Shatner's Transformed Man for 99 cents.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:06am Cecile:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:11am dei x:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:11am AnAnonymousParty:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:14am Cecile:

and chopped liver!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:14am Don:

Ken made the tough move, but the right move. I used to listen to Grandma Phyllis's "Post-War Levittown Big Band Hour" on the old WINS. Amazing her voice hasn't changed that much!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:14am Lysergic Poutine:

OMGWTFLOL

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:17am Mark:

Wow!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:18am Mooose:

Grandma Phyllis is magic!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:18am Lysergic Poutine:

I've seen this happen in other people's lives, and now it's happening in mine!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:18am Dei x:

Grandma Phyllis don't need no stinkin cawl screenah! This is a great education for shiksha grams like me in protestant NH.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:19am still b/p:

- "yum, kippers" -

Purim shot!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:19am Ellis:

It's like being locked in a nursing home... or reading Duplex Planet!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:19am Negator:

All slept on her Murphy bed? Is that what she calls it? Why not her Murray bed?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:19am Mark:

WOW WOW!! that's a double wow!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:19am Cecile:

travelled like gossip wildfire!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:20am Lizardner Dave:

It's like Jean Shepherd, but it's a woman from New York instead of a guy from Indiana. Oh, and without Shep's deeply held bitterness.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:20am Murray:

Band meeting!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:20am Lysergic Poutine:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:21am Bob:

I envy the deaf student
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:22am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:22am Bob:

And speaking of Deaf...
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:22am Cecile:

I like grandma phyllis.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:23am Negator:

Phyllis, have you ever been in a threesome? Slept with a Tranny?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:23am dei x:

How to dominate the sidewalk; walk with your left arm and leg swinging at the same time, instead of left arm-right leg... it's a non verbal signal to steer clear. Also, tuck one pant leg in to your sock. Up to top-calf.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:23am Parq:

It's a little like the old WNYC's daytime programming.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:23am Andy B:

Mark: If you don't like Grandma Phyllis, you can GO TO HELL!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:23am still b/p:

After this, can you play Sarah Jackman by Allan Sherman?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:23am dale:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:25am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:26am murray:

That's a good lad, Mark! You should take him as an ixample.

No, still, I manage a combo called Flight of the Conchords.
And we have band meetings in my office at the NZ Consulate.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:26am annie:

sorry; last year's ruled!!!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:26am listener mark:

We will get you for this!!!
If we have to burn down the city we will find you!!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:26am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:26am gecko:

If she plays the Pachelbel canon, there will be blood.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:27am murray:

And don't pout, b/p. Not in front of the map.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:27am Joe:

But what IS the comments record?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:27am Lizardner Dave:

Still present and enjoying it. Can't call in 'cause I'm supposed to be working.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:27am Bon Scott:

If you want blood, you've got it.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:28am murray:

Oh, good! good, Lizardner Dave.

So, good news and bad news. Good news first.
Your biscuits came in from the NZ government.

Bad news. Still no gigs.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:29am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:30am PodSean:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:34am Cecile:

Phyll, bass = promouned BASE.
BASS is what I catch with my dad, and what Napoleon Dynamite gives as a love offering.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:35am Joe:

They should've called it MEDIEVAL DEAD
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:35am Freddy: from West Orange Plumbing Supply:

Are you serious, Army of Darkness is GARBAGE
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:35am Robyn Hitchcock:

Ba -a- a- a- sss.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:36am Negator:

So what happened after the show, Phyllis?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:37am still b/p:

Grandma's gone all Krampus on us.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:37am PMD:

Andy shoudl call in - that gets Grandma Phyllis going...
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:37am Cecile:

Freddy, we will have to agree to disagree in a civilized way on that one. Especially since you are the one with the plumbing wrenches
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:37am Lysergic Poutine:

This show's really going to sheol!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:37am John from Oslo:

Hmmm strange, I was just thinking of Dr. Ruth
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:38am jan:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:38am Mark:

Dr Ruth was a sniper
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:39am Freddy: from West Orange Plumbing Supply:

Cecile, ok
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:39am Parq:

Mrs. Beethoven says, "Don't you realize that I'm your inspiration?"

"You, inspire me!", Beethoven replies, "Don't make me laugh! Hah-hah-hah-haaaaaaah, hah-hah-hah-haaaaaaaah!"
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:39am nEGATOR:

Now I know why Ken had her on! Ken you whore!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:40am Cecile:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:40am bw:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:40am John from Oslo:

Army of Darkness is a great movie. Remember the Boomstick (or as Grandma Phyllis would call it; Boomshtick...
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:42am Cecile:

  Wed. 4/1/09 9:42am Negator:

A gruesome April first indeed
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:46am Lysergic Poutine:

The Nazis never happened!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:47am PMD:

Seriously. Maybe I'll go the holocaust museum today to cheer up.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:47am Lysergic Poutine:

There's one in my town!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:47am Unclear on the concept:

So what is she saying, that Hitler's Germany was a bad thing?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:48am Negator:

Do we know how Hitler tied his shoes?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:48am Lysergic Poutine:

I see, she's turning up the bitterness. Can't we swing in a more "Art Bell" direction?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:48am dei x:

Humans are such an odd species, what we are capable of doing to each other... anyone got an ETA on the next space borne slab?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:49am Lysergic Poutine:

We'll be waiting just a lifetime.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:49am annie:

this is worse than the altered voicebox stuff...
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:49am Lizardner Dave:

@Negator: In little knotsies?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:49am Mark:

no, how did Hitler tie his shoes? (don't make me sorry I asked)
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:50am Negator:

That's right: Little Nazis! You win!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:52am John from Oslo:

Corn Chorissa
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:52am listener mark:

We need a happy song,

The sun on the meadow is summery warm
The stag in the forest runs free
But gathered together to greet the storm
Tomorrow belongs to me
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:52am PMD:

I love hearing Grandma say 'gig'
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:52am Lysergic Poutine:

Oy, she's threatening us with 3 hours of this?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:52am murray:

I did, however, get Grandma Phyllis a gig.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:53am Negator:

No sense in requesting any Wagner up in that piece, eh?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:54am Joe:

Wagner yo. Whatup dun.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:54am annie:

two hours ten minutes left. if texas scott can struggle though this, then HE WINS!!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:54am Cecile:

Oh, thanks, Nick.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:54am Howie58:

About Wagner-it is better than it sounds.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:55am PMD:

Am I a sicko just because I liked the tying shoes joke?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:55am Lizardner Dave:

When are we going to hear some stories about the good Nazis, like Tom Cruise in that movie?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:56am fishmonkeystew:

Hmmm, this sounds like a bit more than was expected, no?
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:56am annie:

PMD, i was rotflmao!!!
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:56am gecko:

Uh - Mendelssohn was born, raised, and died Protestant. His father was jewish but converted. The Nazis classified things racially, but they don't always set the best example for us to follow.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:57am Negator:

The sad thing is that Little Nazis joke is the only one I know. I learned it at the age of 6.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:57am JJZ:

The music is nice.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:58am annie:

i wonder how long til they forget to turn the mike off and we get to hear them talk about the little bastards making commnets.
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:58am Nick (Phyllis' sidekick):

I thought about dressing as Tom Cruise for Halloween. That way, I could be like, "what?! I'm a GOOD Nazi."
  Wed. 4/1/09 9:59am annie:

and parade around with prince william
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:00am Nick:

BTW, I'm reading all of these comments to Phyllis.
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:02am Cecile:

how is she taking them?
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:03am Nick:

Not so well with the tranny one...
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:03am Negator:

Bye, Grandma!
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:03am Tom:

Phyllis, What was the first rock concert that you ever attended?
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:03am dei x:

I look forward to the body of work that will come from the Somali and Bosnian refugees, not to mention the other survivors of broad cultural traumas. Too bad great art can only change a few.
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:05am Cecile:

I'm going to say it again.
J-date
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:06am PMD:

Grandma, though the entire Nachum crowd is listening and is your likely source for a date, I think you scared them off with the April Fool's joke. Maybe if you prove you can cook kosher??
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:07am PMD:

annie, glad I could oblige.
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:07am still b/p:

Maybe the best date-appropriate response would've been a seamless unspoken conspiracy among all commenters: no recognition whatsoever of any difference in the show. "Man, my buttered waffle rocked this morning. And, hey, great set, Ken. Stooges, please."
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:08am Vernon:

Did I fall for an April Fool's Joke, or is the Do or DIY show not happening today?
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:08am dragonflyshards:

I have a Snit...Runs great!
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:09am Nick:

Yo, call you pussies: 201 209 9368

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:09am Negator:

Roll us a rag, Grandma!
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:09am PMD:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:10am dc pät:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:12am Vernon Obama:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:12am Nick:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:13am Pearlÿ Obama:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:13am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:13am Fake Budgie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:13am dc obämä:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:14am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:14am Mark:

In a sense aren't we all brothers and sister?
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:15am still b/p:

Exactly, Cecile and FB. On the turbo-normal tip. Operation Cupcake Dog. Nyah-nyah, Nana!
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:15am dragonflysh:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:15am Thelma:

Au Fond de Temple Saint from Bizet's Pecheurs de Perles is an April Fool's joke for Ken's Show, but you indies rock guys should sit up and listen for a change. If you can't dig this there is something wrong with your soul . Ask Kenny G.
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:15am John from Oslo:

Obama found boogers under the table in the oval office
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:15am Real Budgie:

Someone about 100 comments back asked about the comments record. Wasn't it that AIG comments show in Ken's old time slot (LOL) a couple of weeks back? If memory serves, Ken posted the total as 486 at the end. That's 162/hour, close to 3/minute. The last hour was the killer, though, with all the AIG jokes. If you want a record, accelerate insanely. :-P
  Wed. 4/1/09 10:25am annie:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:25am Mark:

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:45am G:

annie, my understanding is that after a number of recent incidents one or more dj's mentioned that their comments boards were being ruined by troll stuff, and TS may or may not be posting any more. Haven't spotted him in comments since the last bad incident Sunday evening, when two shows in a row turned off the comments function.

  Wed. 4/1/09 10:50am Carmichael:

I give up trying to read the comments list. Someone sped up the refresh rate, and it keeps moving on me.

Good morning, everyone. I'm normally not good with the April Fool's shenanigans, so just kiss my fat ass, generally speaking.

For You Cecile:

Clink, clink, another drink
Plenty in the cellar when it's gone.
Drink, drink, the glasses clink
Making tinkly music till the dawn is breaking.
Clang, clang, who cares a dang?
What's the difference when you're on a spree?
Over the teeth, behind the gums,
Look out stomach here she comes
Hi! Have another drink on me.
Gurgle, gurgle, gurgle, gurgle.
Gurgle, gurgle, gurgle, gurgle.
Trinkle, trinkle, trinkle, trinkle.
Slice of cheese and bite of pickle
Doesn't even cost a nickel
Now to wash it down.
Clink, clink, no more to drink
I had a cellar full, but now it's gone.
Drink, drink, the glasses clink
Like the anvil chorus and my head is splitting,
Uh, brinking, uh, busting. Oh brother!
Oh, ow, what'll I do now
Pink elephants running after me.
Oh, that stuff is smooth as silk
From now on I'll stick to milk.
Nothing else to drink for me.

Grandma Phyllis is a pleasant part of my morning.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:29am Cecile:

Hey, i can get in a fierce argument about the right way to make tabouli/tabbouleh/whatever.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:29am PodSean:

  Wed. 4/1/09 11:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

I think I've heard Grandma Phyllis on Seven Second Delay before. What's up on 7SD tonight?
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:30am annie:

eternity will last til the next yahoo who gets the most comments. and cecile what about hummus, humus, hummous?
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:30am Joe:

I will bet anyone here 100 dollars that "What are you, CRAZY?!" ends up in Ken's mix in the near future.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:30am dc pät:

I'm going to eat fake meat and lots of it.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:30am Pearlÿ Sweets:

  Wed. 4/1/09 11:30am Cecile:

Most people put way, way too much bulgur wheat in it. And not anywhere enough lemon.

Oh, stingy. You crazy gentile.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:31am MQ:

ok so what was that last piano sonnato (sp?) ?
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:31am Nick:

Can someone tell me the current comment tally?
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:31am Bas, NL:

Oh, yeah! Here it's late afternoon.. 5:28pm. Grandma Phyllis; you sound well in the afternoon too ;)
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:31am Pearlÿ Sweets:

I'm sure Ken had a great April Fools idea for 7SD and then Andy shot it down. As he shoots everybody down (Except on his facebook, where he is such a nice guy.)
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:31am John from Oslo:

Cecile, tabole. just let the vegetable juices be the liquid - do not add water! just squeeze lemons. use cous cous fine, not coarse bulgur
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:31am Cecile:

hummus - I pop the skins off the chickpeas, hard but worth it. LOTS of lemon. Lots of tahini. No weird crap in it like basil or tomatoes or roasted garlic.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:32am annie:

joe, right after "more music please"
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:32am Ken:

Am I missing good soundbites? I may need to download and edit this show.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:32am Cecile:

John I use water, but very little.
For this awesome Turkish salad that's like it, I whirl up some tomatoes in the blender and let the bulgur sit in that. It has pistachios in it and is to die for.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:33am annie:

i love hummus with tahini, garbanzoes, garlic.. s &p only no lemon...

  Wed. 4/1/09 11:34am Andy B:

I will break Ken's (and Grandma Phyllis's) comments record this afternoon. Ken is not chopped liver. He's a half-eaten, room temp cheese blintz.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:34am Parq:

This is totally like having Pegine (sp?) Fitzgerald back from beyond the pale.
  Wed. 4/1/09 11:34am flyshards:

  Wed. 4/1/09 2:54pm Erik:

I really hope this gets archived. I got back from picking up my son after school (I live in Berlin) and I refreshed the WFMU home page and I saw Grandma Phyllis' First Program. I was tempted to tune in, but it was already 2:15 into the show and I wanted to listen to it from the beginning. "I'll catch it in the archive." While I was cleaning up after supper, I thought about the show that I was missing. "That's what freeform is about!" I had glanced at the comments and had seen that almost everybody was enjoying it, which made me go "Awww... I love WFMU!" So please, please archive it!
  Wed. 4/1/09 4:37pm mike:

big woof real entertainment
  Sat. 4/4/09 8:08pm Amy:
