That's more personal info than anybody cares for this early, dogboy... Ah, I was wondering if you were gonna play a version of this, Meg...
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:21am Meghan:

  Thu. 7/23/09 6:22am Chuck:

  Thu. 7/23/09 6:30am Chuck:

Ironic that you're doing this show on such a cloudy day... No accounting for the weather though...
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:31am Meghan:

Well, let's just hope it works and pulls out the sun! Stupid weather...
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:32am dogboy:

You'll never guess who called me last week, Meghan...
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:41am dogboy:

  Thu. 7/23/09 6:42am Meghan:

Oh God.... who called! Gossip.... love it.....
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:43am Chuck:

Audrey Flack!!! She's got work for me!
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:45am Meghan:

OMG..... scary! she still has money to make work? Just make sure she doesn't beat you with a stick like she did with Jay!
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:47am Chuck:

On the phone it sounds like she's mellowed cuz she's getting old... I'll be able to handle her...
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:48am Meghan:

Nice... I still love that story about Jay though... it makes me giggle just thinking about it. He totally deserves to be whacked with the stick....
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:50am Chuck:

Yeah! Him and his buddy Keropian... HA HA!
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:55am Chuck:

I will have to go to LI to get Audrey's piece though... I may have to make it a point to take a spin through NJ since I'm down that way... I'll let you know when...
  Thu. 7/23/09 6:56am Meghan:

Definitely! That would be great!
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:03am Chuck:

Haven't seen my nephew and sisters in a while either... They are in East Rutherford and Garfield..
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:04am messica:

good song, yay sonic youth!
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:08am Chuck:

Were you gonna do "Always the Sun" by the Stranglers? 80s, baby! Gotta do Bullet Lavolta for a Boston show...
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:10am Meghan:

Yep, I am trying to find some Bullet Lavolta.... we had it on cassette, but Jeff gave away all our cassettes since we had nothing to play them on....
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:12am Chuck:

I've got a couple of their songs... I'll zap them over to you...
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:15am Meghan:

That would be great..... I am gonna look here too, hopefully I will find something!
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:24am Chuck:

Whoa! What's up with the machinery?
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:24am Meghan:

??? why what you hear?
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:28am Chuck:

Skipping! Could be the audio stream though... There are 3 Bullet Lavolta songs being transmitted to you right now, which may also be the cause...
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:28am Meghan:

That must be why.... it wasn't doing it here...
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:34am Chuck:

You have Bullet Lavolta in your email inbox now... And no more skipping, OMG that's annoying!
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:36am Jeff:

Great show today, but it's lonely without B-man. I really hope this brings the sun out, since Chris is on his way over for an epic ride today.

By the way, Yellow Mustard Rulez, it's been more than 15 years since you took German, the other Bullet Lavolta album I was looking for was "The Gun didn't Know I was Loaded", and I haven't heard any skipping here.
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:36am Meghan:

thanks Chuck! no more skipping!
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:37am Meghan:

Ladies and Gentlemen.... Jeff is awake and catching us all up! Thanks Jeff! Bosco is sleeping... it's so cute
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:39am wha?:

I've been meaning to say, this reminds me of KBC Radio. Anyone out there remember KBC on WFMU?
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:40am Jeff:

Hey, I've been awake since 5:30. I've just been enjoying lying in bed on this beautiful morning.
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:41am Chuck:

Morning Jeff! Yeah, some stuff is hard to find these days.. Especially on CD...
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:46am Meghan:

You mean Bitslap with KBC, correct? I see the archives and they are recent, but I don't see when it's on.....
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:48am Jeff:

Here it comes... I can feel it! I thought we might get it with Keep On THe Sunny Side, but that's too obvious. THis is way better!
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:49am Meghan:

Just a twofer today.... I had so many last week, i figure i would give you all a break! hehe
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:50am Jeff:

Doh! you fooled me.
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:51am Chuck:

Can't have everything, Jeff...
  Thu. 7/23/09 7:54am Chuck:

Ha! I've heard this version before on VKR... Terrific!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:01am wha?:

Huh. I wonder if it's the same KBC.
The KBC I was thinking of hasn't been on since mid-nineties. But I see the recent archives you're talking about. I also can't tell when the show is from the schedule.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:04am Meghan:

Yeah i am not sure either.... i was trying to see if anything else popped up from it too. I am curious to what you are talking about though! Let me know if you find it! send me a link- underwater@wfmu.org
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:05am Chuck:

Ah, another song on the list that I totally zoned on and forgot to send you... Seems you're doing well without my input though...
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:06am wha?:

What kind of Boston bands are you looking for?

Two that come to mind are Babaloo and the Velcro Peasants. No reason for you to have heard of the 'Peasants, though. I'd be really surprised if you found a VP CD in the record library.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:06am Meghan:

hehe, thanks Chuck! There are so many songs.... really had to pick out what I wanted...
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:08am Meghan:

Looking for any Boston Based bands really. I will look for those two. You might be amazed at what I can find sometimes. Hell, I am amazed at what I find!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:10am Chuck:

Just as well... My list had over 250 songs on it! Talk about decision overload!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:11am Meghan:

HA! Yup!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:16am Chuck:

It gets scarier! My initial list had over 630 songs... I chopped it down by excluding the words Sundown and Sunrise for starters...
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:17am wha?:

Great idea for a theme, by the way. You have a million bands to choose from. Of course, you might go crazy trying to choose.

The KBC Radio show appeared to be well-established when I started listening in '94. He also played on a theme most weeks. I vaguely remember some of the themes being pretty off-the-wall. The holiday themed shows were pretty memorable. I'd like to say it was a staple of my WFMU diet, though I didn't get to listen every week.

Then one day the show was just gone. I think archived playlists hung around for a few years (though maybe I'm wishfully mis-remembering this), but now there doesn't seem to be any evidence of the show from that time. I might have an old LCD with a program schedule packed away somewhere. (I've moved 4 times since then.)
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:18am Ken From Hyde Park:

These theme shows are cool. I just made the connection ... The show's title says theme park and each week has a theme. Clever. If you wanted to spice things up a bit today, I guess there's "Flight of Icarus" by Iron Maiden.

  Thu. 7/23/09 8:19am Meghan:

Hmmm, I am going to investigate now.... I am extremely curious....

Wow, If I threw in songs about flying up to the sun and my wings melting.... hehe. Glad to see you Ken!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:21am pauldepiperssoninberlin:

danke thank you fur for playing spielen luna. nice, very nice.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:22am Meghan:

Ich Liebe Luna! Und Galaxy 500
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:24am ec:

Cheers for the Felt song a few minutes ago - one of the most underrated bands ever.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:25am PMD:

Hi - listening in at work (in early). Love your shows!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:26am Meghan:

i originally picked up that album because of Primitive Painters... and fell in love with the album. They really are wonderful. Morning PMD! Glad you joined us!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:34am pauldepiperssoninberlin:

only now do i see the sun theme going on. im still drunk from the night before. would sun ra be classed as acceptable. the flaming lips - felt good to burn but dont listen zu mich. great choices
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:34am soapdish:

Late to the party. you looking to do a boston show?
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:35am Chuck:

Cool! Robyn's always fun... Did you get to check him out in person when he was there at FMU?
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:35am Meghan:

Yep! Next week, all Boston based bands! you got requests?!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:36am ?:

How about Boston?
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:36am ec:

How about some Boston!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:36am Meghan:

I wish I did, but i had met him in Chicago outside the venue after seeing him. it was great. It was for the Respect album
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:38am Meghan:

Yep, Boston is a Boston band.... let's think of some others too....
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:39am Chuck:

Yes, I remember you've told me your Robyn tale...
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:44am PMD:

I don't know Boston bands, sorry, but found this on the web. Help some poor starving artist by playing their music...
http://bostongaragebands.com/htmlfiles/home.html
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:45am ?:

Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer are from Boston. So are the Pixies.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:45am Meghan:

Awwww nice, I will check that out! Gonna do my good deed and help some bands out!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:45am Maria:

Mission of Burma please!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:46am Chuck:

Meghan (and I for that matter) are full blown Pixies fans... She'll be playing them guaranteed!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:47am Meghan:

The biggest problem with the Pixies is PICKING a song! SOOOO hard! What album? They are all too good! And don't worry, Mission of Burma is on the list as well.....
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:50am ec:

Are the Modern Lovers from Boston, or somewhere else in MA?
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:50am Chuck:

My first response would be Debaser cuz it was the first song I ever heard by them... And they BLEW ME AWAY!
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:53am Dropkick Murphys:

Yeah, we're from Boston.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:54am JJZ:

Good ol' Sunshine Days.
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:55am PMD:

BRADY BUNCH!
Oh, oh, way too late, but you should have played Pebbles and Bam Bam singing 'let the sun shine in, face it with a grin, open up your heart and let the sun shine in"
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:56am Parq:

I'll be on vacation and sleeping late next week, but a Boston show wouldn't be complete without Dogzilla's "Lunch With Ed".
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:56am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Pebbles and Bam Bam song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpab0a3W4Ec
  Thu. 7/23/09 8:58am ?:

vampire weekend, they're from boston
  Tue. 7/3/12 6:00am jay/ London:
